Yes, I really did buy this scarf because of Red & Black Week!😉 I had wanted to own something like this for quite some time now and when the opportunity presented itself I didn’t resist…
Yesterday, I was a little lazy about my Red & Black Week post. I felt crappy – that’s my only excuse. Sorry. Still, I hope it made you smile about your childhood crush. Even if only a little. I thought about asking you how your childhood crushes influenced the way your fashion tastes turned out to be – but then didn’t. It had just slipped my mind at the end of posting so I added that question to yesterday’s post today.
Well, back to my Red & Black Week outfit:
I wore a simple black t-shirt, my favorite wrap-around cardigan, a pair of black jeans, and the scarf for work today. I couldn’t quite decide how this outfit felt to me: 50’s Style? Flight Attendant? Actually, I’d like to try “Flight Attendant Style” in one way or another – especially with red highlights like those fantastic red leather gloves they have at Air Berlin.
Only one single red item today. For some reason I seem to lack in red clothing. But I have another one for tomorrow, I promise!
Today, VictorianKitty asks which store dominates our wardrobe. Well, I’m not sure if there’s a dominant store… I buy a lot of my things at Zero, Orsay, and even Takko (the latter is less expensive and is probably similar to Forever21) but my shopping is not limited to these stores. I shop wherever I find something I like. I do not shop at gothic stores, though. I don’t like that “instant goth” style. Although I did order at EMP once… but that’s not a gothic store, is it? What I wanted to say is: I love “hunting” for dark pieces and putting together an outfit one by one. Sometimes it takes months and even years before it reaches perfection or – better put – before the moment of gratification is finally there.^^
I know, I know, we all remember that I’m the one who gave most of her dark things – and PERFECT outfits among those! – away because she was misled into believing they couldn’t be part of her grown-up work-life…😦
Ouch, I’ll be hiding in my closet for the rest of the evening… The soft crying you’ll hear will be me – pitying myself…
