Velvet grunge.

Hi, doves! It feels so good to be back on a weekly posting schedule!

This is what I wore (with one exception) to a show in New York this past Saturday. I switched to a lighter knit, striped cardigan. Thank goodness I did! It was so deathly hot in the theatre that I would have been murderous in this sweater (have I mentioned I hate the heat? Because I hate it!). 

I was a little iffy about the whole outfit because it looked pretty Valentine's Day-ish to me (if you've followed me for a while, you'll remember I created my own anti-Valentine's Day holiday called Lime Green & Turquoise Day!). I'm hoping it looks a little more grungy though. The skirt makes me think of the velvet chokers I used to wear as a kid. But perhaps I'm just seeing what I want to see!

I took these photos in three different spots all with different lighting. Because some days I just don't know what I'm going for...
(UO cardigan, ancient thrifted top, ModCloth skirt, Target tights, Ruche boots)
(I had a ton of in focus twirling photos, but whatever. I like this blurry, awkward one best.)
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend (and Friday the 13th)! 


  1. Love this outfit! I know what you mean- often times some of my fave pictures are the blurry ones ;-p Alex

    1. Thank you! I seem to have a penchant for imperfect photography, I guess! ;)

  2. Beautiful! That dark green velvet skirt is a gem and I love the pop of colour with your tights.

  3. That skirt is absolutely perfect <3 Love the color and texture! Nice juxtaposition with the bright tights, too!
