The Butcher’s Daughter (Rose)

Posted in Other, Outfits with tags , , , , , on October 8, 2010 by stylisticalanomalies

I don’t know if you can tell from this picture, but my tights are labeled with the bones and cuts of meat found on the human leg. I made them with the help of a Sharpie marker and a tolerant friend, who unfortunately got the terms written on her skin through the tights as well.

And my necklace is an anatomical human heart in glass. Yes.

Dress: Banana Republic

Tights: Target, modified by me

Shoes: DSDoubleyou

Necklace: River City Bead Company


DIY Knits (Rose)

Posted in Outfits, Sewing with tags , , , , , , on October 4, 2010 by stylisticalanomalies

I woke up this morning, realized it was going to be chilly today, and rejoiced. why? Because all summer I’ve been waiting for the chance to wear knits, tights, layers. Basically everything I have going on today. And I will not sweat! Because it is cold! Haha! I made the dress and scarf myself, which makes me particularly proud.

Please excuse the dramatic facial expression. I was in kind of a hurry and couldn’t get a non-silly shot. Don’t I look cozy, though?

Sweater dress: made by me, back in July, out of 2 sweaters from the Salvation Army. The lady at the counter said, “Isn’t it a bit warm for that?” and I said “yes, but it won’t always be.”

2-Tone Scarf (worn as obi-belt): Knit by me.

Tights: Gift from Mother

Boots: L.L. Bean

EDIT: It has come to my attention that all of my facial expressions are as silly as the one in this picture. Disregard apology; apparently, this cannot be prevented.

Not My Best Work (Rose)

Posted in Outfits with tags , , , on September 30, 2010 by stylisticalanomalies

So I bought this dress. And I think it has potential, but instead of altering it I was just like “It’ll be fine with a belt!” and threw it on and ran out the door and got rained on and came home and now I can apparently only pose as though stoned:

Dress: Target Clearance Rack (such weird stuff!)

Belt: Came off a dress, won’t stay belted, should probably get rid of

Boots: L.L. Bean

I was wearing tights, and they were quite snazzy, but since I took them off when I got to my first class because it was too darn hot, I’m not showing them. They don’t count. Tomorrow: an outfit that doesn’t make me look like a sleepy peasant woman.

Too Damn Hot

Posted in Outfits with tags , , , , on September 24, 2010 by stylisticalanomalies

I very much dislike heat waves in September. They limit my options terribly. No sweaters, no hats, no scarves. Except for my snazzy chainmail scarf. The theme of the day is “Punked out Flower Fairy.” I think.

Not entirely happy with this, but too late to go back now. I wish my socks matched. Or that I’d worn sandals. I’ve sworn that I will wear the outfit I photograph, with no major alterations, but damn it’s gonna be murder walking around in boots all day…

Fluffy Dress: refashioned from a skirt, a gift from the lovely Daisy

Mismatched Socks: Gift (From Mother, who sometimes thinks I’m five)

Boots: L.L. Bean

Belt: Can’t remember, honestly. I think it came with a pair of pants.

Chainmail Scarf: Gift (From Mother, who knows me all too well sometimes…)

Autumn yet? (ROSE)

I slept with the window open and woke up utterly convinced that the rest of the world must still be as cold as my bedroom. I dressed accordingly. That thing in my hand? that’s a woolly hat. Yes, in September in Richmond. It made sense until I closed the window.

Used Car Salesman Jacket–Goodwill

Dress–Banana Republic

Socks–Powell’s Bookstore

Boots–L.L. Bean

Hat–My mad knitting skillz

Poison Ring–Bad Girlz Collective

By the way, the head of Blackbeard that’s leering down at me is not some kind of freakish accident. He belongs in the room, and will probably be in most of my outfit shots. Hope you like him, because he’s here to stay.

EDIT: It was too hot to wear most of this outfit outside, but the jacket and wool hat came in super-handy once I got to my afternoon class, which was freezing cold. Score!
