Outfit of the Day 120

Top & Dress: Forever 21 | Pantyhose: Legluxe | Shoes: Payless

I finally managed to resist pairing pink with blue in an OOTD! This outfit was inspired by Mindy Kaling from The Mindy Project, just because I love her and I feel like this is something she'd wear. I've actually been looking for a white top to wear under a dress like this for a while now, but I've not been able to find one that fit me properly. They all seem to turn into crop tops when I raise my arms, and while this one is no exception, it was cheap enough to keep and it still works in this application. Mrs. Spookshow says I should just get my button tops from the men's department, but they've always just felt so heavy and blocky tailoring-wise, so I want to avoid that. 

Anyhow, I'm trying a new pair of pantyhose today. These are actually the brand that Mrs. Spookshow wears on the rare occasions when she wears pantyhose, and they are compression support hose. Definitely a lot thicker and tigher than the pantyhose I usually prefer, but I spent all yesterday out in my workshop / gaming room getting it all cleaned and reorganized, so my feet and knees were really aching. I decided to try these pantyhose to see if they would help out in that regard. 

That's all for this one, y'all. Seeya soon!

Outfit of the Day 119

Headband: Domino Dollhouse | Dress & Tights: Forever 21+ | Shoes: gifted

You remember in that last post when I said I've tended to shy away from floral prints? Well, this totally happened. I'm guessing it was probably the colors, but when I saw this dress I was just really smitten and had to have it. I'm glad I did, because I really like it!

I bought this awesome headband from Domino Dollhouse a good while ago, and I think I've worn it here on the blog a few times, but always with a wig. For whatever reason, I've kinda worried that head accessories kinda need hair to work, but fuck that! I like being bald, and I also like this headband, so here we are. My favorite thing about this outfit, besides how super cute it is, is the repeating theme of studs. I've got them on my headband, on my tights, and on my shoes. How fun is that?

Outfit of the Day 118


Necklace: homemade | Dress: Lane Bryant | Tights: We Love Colors | Shoes: Payless

I'm kinda on a roll with cute summery outfits, huh? Yeah, I know, the tights and boots kinda say otherwise, but hey, I thought they were too perf to pass up here. I figure my shoulders and arms are bare, and the dress is super light and cool anyhow, so it balances out, haha.

Confession time: I'm really not a huge fan of Lane Bryant. Overall, I find that a lot of the clothing there just doesn't really fit my aesthetic, but I also feel it's a bit pricey too. As I was ordering some undergarments, though, I happened upon this dress, and as fate would have it, I managed to snag it for free with a really sweet discount code. Total score! I've kinda stayed away from floral prints in the past, but I really liked the pixelated design on this one. The dress is really nice, so I think I might have to check out LB a little more often.
