TOMBOY GLAMGIRL

This is my favorite look to date, I don’t know how we found this amazing ally but I am so thankful and obsessed with how this spread came out.


I’m finally featuring these lace up thigh high boots that I got for xmas. I have been wearing them so much, even when I shouldn’t, like when it’s at a rainy and muddy music festival or it’s Wednesday morning and I’m working postmates🙃… sometimes I just like to dress up for no reason at all. The hoodie is instant tomboy paired with the girly tights and boots. + the purse, choker and hoops bring the tomboy glamgirl styles together. I love how it all works in a weird way and lets me feel boyish & badass & girly & sexy all at the same time.

My scoliosis has basically become the focus of my physical therapy sessions, and I’m learning all sorts of fun stuff, like how my “good posture” is completely different from most peoples’ “good posture”.  Another thing she’s taught me is that the way to actually get my back in a “rest” position is to pull my right shoulder back, like I’m doing in this photo.

Anyway, I had to record a video of myself reading one minute of a children’s book (I happened to have a copy of The Princess and the Goblin, so that’s what I used) for one of the jobs I applied for, so I needed to look professional from the shoulders up.

It was warm enough to not wear a coat outside today! Which, by Maine standards was 40° 😂 Since I wasn’t wearing a bulky winter coat, I took the opportunity to wear my @bannedapparel cat purse!

8. An article of clothing you didn’t think you can pull off.

I am of the firm opinion that if you put something on your body you are already pulling it off, so this is just an article of clothing that is kind of difficult to work into my wardrobe–the sheer yellow skirt.  I really need some leggings to wear under it.  (All the things I describe as “leggings” are actually long underwear, so they’re not really suitable for the summer.)

Also this outfit is making me a little sad because I was planning a really similar one with my beloved, mostly dead sneakers.  (I may be able to patch ‘em up enough for some gentle non-athletic, fashion-only wearing, but I’m not sure.)

[Image description: one full-body photo of a young woman (me) with bobbed light purple hair.  I’m standing in front of a blue wall and holding a metallic pink cane in my left hand.  I’m wearing a black velvet slip dress that goes to about mid-thigh.  Over it, I have on a pleated sheer yellow skirt, which I am in fact wearing as a skirt.  The dress and skirt are belted with a wide red belt.  I have on a black snapback hat that says “I got dressed today” in rainbow letters across the front; the letters are surrounded my lavender stars.  I’m wearing sheer black socks with yellow roses on them.  I have on black-and-grey sneakers with white soles.  I’m wearing a few colors of eyeshadow smudged around my eyes, and bright red lipstick (on my lips).  As always, I have on my round black glasses.]

Simple, witchy and layered for a weird winter day. Wearing no makeup besides eyebrows.

In my part of Australia, this winter has been incredibly strange. We have had the hottest winter day, the coldest winter day and also one of the quickest temperature drops on record. The weather is really messed up.

Top: Shein
Cardigan: Punk Rave
Skirt: Thrifted

Belt: Killstar
Shoes: Underground

Who said you have to look drab at work? I had a job interview today, and I wanted to wear something classy, fun and fashionable.

Dress and Cardigan: Old Navy
Belt: Thrift store

Sunglasses: eBay

Rainy days here go on and on…🌧 It’s nice and chilly so yay layers, but I can’t wear any too long layers or the bottom hem will be soaking wet all day…🤔 I’m hoping this green dress is just the right length today to keep me not just warm but dry as well! Green dress: earth music and ecology / White dress: Ray Beams / Sweater: SM2 / necklace and belt: thrifted / Socks: Daiso 😏

Denim x Denim x Denim

I’ve always loved the double denim combo. I’m really just a sucker for a good matching set! This early 2000s look just serves up the tomboy glam swag.

I took this denim on denim fit and raised it one more denim with this belt-choker that I actually cut to fit my neck. Belts are chokers now!

The corset crop top balances out the baggy fit of the jeans and oversized distressed denim shirt. + boots and a backpack purse to keep the look relaxed and comfy.

I loved this outfit, it’s super comfortable, breezy, and I love the light colors. Went to the doctors today. It went better than expected, still have to have lab work done to find out what’s wrong. But my chin is up and I’m feeling okay today.

Day 25 of 31 DIY’s Til Halloween was my version of an old classic - Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. Pretty sure most girls have done this costume once or twice, or at least considered it!

I’m wearing a green-brown tank top that I found at Forever 21 for about $3. The shorts are my old black denim shorts, I think I found them at Urban Outfitters in college, but you can probably find some at a thrift store. The belt is a spiked belt I found at a garage sale in high school. I made the gun holsters from stretchy webbing from the fabric store, and some scrap faux leather. The gloves are from an Army-Navy surplus store in Montreal. The shoulder straps are from the little mini faux leather backpack I was wearing. I found my socks at the dollar store, and I’m also wearing my old thrifted knee-high combat boots.
