Glitter + Dress
Let me just say how much I LOVE this dress. I bought it on zulily (which is another thing I LOVE, because I can get awesome clothes for a great price) & every time I wear it, I get so many compliments. I love it because of the unique pattern – polka dots & random artistic circles – & the interesting asymmetric cut. It’s definitely my favorite dress at the moment. I also am in love with the color combination of green & pink, which I utilized in the earrings that I’m wearing. The frog face emoji ones are especially great! & as always, everything is made better by the addition of sparkly jelly shoes.

For this outfit, I wanted it to look badass. So I did one of my favorite combinations of a sleeveless shirt & a jean jacket, which to me, just looks badass for some reason. I would have used a leather jacket, but because I don’t currently own one, I used my jean jacket instead. My love of utilizing skinny jeans to make an outfit a little edgier – an inspiration which I attribute to Bob Dylan – was also something I drew on here, along with combat boots, which instantly make any outfit look that much more badass. I think this was the first time I ever wore these great earrings from Claire’s, even though I had them for a long time, but I loved them. I practiced making a mildly unamused expression to top off the look.
Jumping For Joy

This was an outtake from the #radicalselflovejanuary photo challenge by Gala Darling. The photo I ended up using was this one, but in this photo you can see the whole outfit better. Earlier in the day, I paired up my red blouse with my “mime tights”, because they look great with red. I put on my combat boots, & because the weather was a little chilly, I put my white dress shirt on over my blouse like a jacket. It was the perfect fun & whimsical outfit for a fun & whimsical photo shoot.
Dark Plum Manicure
I had been wanting to paint my nails for a long time in order to go along with the new persona I was working on developing, but because I was busy (& because nail polish takes FOREVER to dry completely on my nails), I hadn’t gotten a chance to. When I finally did, I selected Revlon #490, Urban. It looked like a very deep royal blue when it was in the bottle, but when I put it on, it was more of a very deep, rich plum purple. I loved it. It also lasted for 10 days on my nails before I had to removed it, despite having a job in which I frequently hit my nails on things, so I was impressed.

I bought this really great skirt at Bon Worth a while ago, but I hadn’t got around to wearing it yet, mostly because I didn’t really know what to pair it with. I decided that wearing a yellow shirt would match the pastel pink & blue hues of the skirt well, so that was what I ended up wearing. I was going to go shopping in the evening & the weather was pretty cold, so I added a jean jacket & my combat boots. I was thinking about wearing my sparkly jelly shoes with this, but I thought it might be too much & wanted the focus to be on my skirt & not my shoes. I really liked this outfit, & I really liked the way my hair looked in the second photo. I’m loving the new way I’m parting my hair!
