I am obscenely amused with the fact that I just happened to grab the one pair of shoes I own that have elastic straps and my new Elastic Bandage cage legging from minxshop. The effect is so serendipitous, I am shocked.
I got a new nose ring from Rock Your Nose on etsy. I was looking for something with a little extra umph to it. I just happened to stumble upon this seller two weeks ago and I love her stuff. I will be purchasing a great deal more from her.

This is what I am wearing for a dinner of ribs. I wanted to try out the feather cap with something more casual. With a dress, I think it'll just be way too dressy for everyday. I mean, it's already an attention grabber, so a dress would make it more dressy than my everyday life can bear. That's why I waited till I got to my parents house to reclaim my black jumpsuit.
Jumpsuit: thrifted from Saver's
Belt: from another skirt
Necklace: Shop in Austin, TX
Feather Cape: Asos
Hat: Urban Oufitters
Clutch: Secondhand from Plato's Closet
So, I've been gone. I haven't felt that my outfits were all that extra special and therefore, felt no motivation as far as the photography bit. Sometimes, you just need to recalibrate. I believe that with everything. I believe that with my job, teaching Zumba, and fashion. So, I just took it easy for a while and now I'm feeling fabulous. This outfit materialized in my head on a whim yesterday and I decided to just wear it without even laying it out, first. I do this sometimes, but they are typically safer outfits. I am so happy with this, though. It's campy and outlandish and it makes me feel a little like an eccentric old lady. Furthermore, picture taking went like a dream, which was great since my puppy was with me and I could tell he was getting restless.
So, sometimes recalibrating does work and it's not just a justification residing in my head.
