Get a load of that jacket! It’s so cool. I got it at that sale I got some other vintage bits at, but I haven’t worn it with An Actual Outfit until now. It looks super Elizabethan, even more so when I have the front buttoned up. I feel like a stagehand at the Globe or something!
Also every time I wear a dress over jeans, my inner middle-schooler rejoices.

I am leaning on a metallic pink cane that I’m holding in my left hand. I’m wearing a slightly sheer, orange-with-a-hint-of-brown dress that hits at about mid-thigh. Over it, I have on a brown vest–a little of the dress is showing at the neck. Under the dress, I’m wearing dark wash skinny jeans, which are cuffed at the bottom. I have on patterned red socks and light brown hiking boots with black soles and dark red accents. I’m wearing a black, yellow, white, red, green, and blue plaid shirt tied around my waist. I have on a short, grey-brown leather jacket with sleeves that are a bit puffy at the shoulder and tight at the wrist, and a wide collar. I’m wearing red stud earrings, big dangly gold earrings, and dark red lipstick. As always, I have on my round, black glasses.]

[Image description: one full-body photo of a young woman (me) with very short pink hair. I am leaning on a metallic, pink cane that I hold in my left hand; I’m up on my toes with my right arm above my head. I look like a beautiful statue or something. It’s great. I am wearing a sheer, long-sleeved black floral print shirt over a sports bra that’s mostly electric blue, with some grey bits. The sheer shirt is tucked into a pair of short, high-waisted black shorts. Over that, I have on a draped black vest with a white skull print on it. Under the shorts, I’m wearing light pink-orange tights. Over those, I have on a pair of mismatched-but-meant-to-go-together socks with differently patterned stripes in electric blue, neon green, fuchsia, dark purple, and dark blue. I’m wearing black sneakers with silver and electric blue accents. I have on a black snapback with a green underside to the brim, various mismatched earrings, dark lavender lipstick, a choker made of loopy black plastic, and a bracelet with round rainbow beads on it. As always, I’m wearing my round black glasses.]
Now that I’ve realized this hat and these shoes go together so well, I’m coming up with all sorts of outfit ideas! I actually wore these shoes because I went to an anti-Muslim-ban protest (it should be interesting to see what’s happened with that by the time this posts) and I needed to wear shoes I could do a fair bit of walking in. I did change the outfit up a little for the protest–I added more warm layers, took off my jewelry, etc.
The shoes were a really good idea–I ended up standing on top of a fence to get a better view of some of the speakers! I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I was wearing anything other than these shoes or my hiking boots. I still ended up in a lot of pain–more from the standing than the walking–but I probably would’ve been on the ground and unconscious from the pain if I’d worn less practical shoes.

I’m wearing a red-orange V-neck T-shirt under an unbuttoned black vest. I have on dark blue skinny jeans that are cuffed at about mid-calf; under them, I’m wearing orange-and-green striped socks. I have on black sneakers with silver and electric blue accents. I’m wearing a black snapback that says, “I got dressed today” on it in rainbow letters, although the words aren’t really showing; it also has a green underside to the bill of the cap. I have on mismatched earrings; a choker made of loopy, black plastic; an amethyst pendant on a short, black string; and red-orange lipstick. As always, I’m wearing my round black glasses.]
I feel like when I wear this dress I should listen to nothing but TheBaseballs.
[Image description: one full-body photo of a young woman (me) with very short pink hair that’s kinda sorta in a bob. I am leaning on a metallic pink cane that I’m holding in my left hand. I’m wearing a sleeveless red dress with white polka dots–it has a fairly full skirt that goes to a bit below my knees. Under it, I have on a sheer black long sleeved shirt with little burnout velvet plants on it. On top of the shirt and dress I’m wearing a plain black vest. Under the dress, I also have on black tights. I’m wearing silver boots with black laces. One side of my hair is held back with a silver clip shaped like two stars. I have on bright red lipstick and little red earrings. As always, I’m wearing my round black glasses.]
My battle jacket got too small for me earlier this year and I was really sad about it. I was without anything like it for a long time, but I recently decided to make a punk vest. I used some denim and flannel scraps from other projects to try this motorcycle jacket style vest.
I’m doing a red/black/white theme with the patches, to go with the plaid.
I’m really thrilled with how it came out.

Now that the cat’s out of the bag re: me having an Etsy store (hoo boy that’s some pressure to clean it up and list some more stuff right there) I figure I might as well post some of my listings! Here’s a cool vest I found at the rummage sale this summer. (I didn’t take photos wearing it because I’m allergic to wool and I can tell just from touching it that there is definitely wool in the material.) Assuming I set it up right, you can get 10% off your order (anything from the store, not just this vest) with the code “FAIRYPRINCESS”.
