My gift for @buckycapped on this fine Winteriron Holiday Exchange! I didn’t have time to react to any of your specific wishes, but I hope you like it though. With special thanks to my partner who was an excellent reference model for posture and to Wren who helped me tweak the text.
Happy May the Fourth! Have some Kanera AU trash lol. Teenage AU!
When plucky sixteen year old Hera gets wind on an illegal slaver ring, she’s on a mission to expose their syndicate and free their captives. Easier said than done but luckily she’s got a Jedi on her side. Sort of.
Jedi padawan Caleb Dume is anxiously waiting for the day he’ll be deemed ready for his knighthood trials. Of course, it would probably be a lot easier if he wasn’t always getting into trouble with the Council thanks to a certain twi’lek with a penchant for vigilantism.
Just a fun AU idea I’m messing with. Not sure if I should draw it out or write it out. I’m somewhat attached to Jedi!Caleb AUs mostly because canon already follows the life and times of Kanan Jarrus (and I’m very eager to see that unfold) so I waste my time with AUs lol.
I am still sobbing and can’t believe what i got in the mail today! (yes i am wearing a winter hat inside because i was obviously way too excited when i came back home from work to this.)
Most of you know that i couldn’t attend Walker Stalker London and i’m still heartbroken and in denial. I planned to meet so many awesome Tumblr friends and, of course, the love of my life Melissa.
@littlepawkiss is the sweetest angel in the whole wide world. I inhaled her live tweeting from waiting in Melissas queue until she left it again and suddenly she asks for me adress and I was torn between happily sobbing and asking her if she’s insane. I really can’t believe you did that for me and I’m incredibly thankful - you have no idea ♥
Okay so this was supposed to be a one-shot but i can’t do anything short so this will be a two or three part story. I hope you enjoy!
It was a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon with the group of six friends in their usual spot at Topanga’s bakery. They needed to get their homework done for school tomorrow but it wasn’t going so well. Most of them had massive headaches and were feeling quite sick after the raging party they had attended last night.
“I don’t know how I am supposed to finish this stupid english paper?” Lucas asked groaning.
“I don’t know man but I gotta finish mine too,” Zay said slapping Lucas’ shouldeer.
“I have to finish this spanish homework. Do you know how hard it is to think in a foreign language with a hangover?” Riley said exasperatedly.
“Good thing I don’t care about grades too much or this would be very stressful,” Maya joked. “Except I can also handle my alcohol better than you lot.”
After a while of complaining and trying to get through their homework they either finished or gave up. They hung out for a while but soon decided it would be best if they went home and rested. First gone were Smackle and Farkle, then Zay and Lucas, and finally, Maya and Riley walked back to Riley’s house. When they got their they both got a giant glass of water and some aspirin and sat in the bay window in silence for a little before Riley spoke up.

Whenever you feel like dressing the part, you´ve got several areas you have to reflect on: your mood, the seasonality (hence the choice to layer up or down and the type of fabric you´re using), the colours (which combination) and finally, your range of items.
Number one is your mood: if you feel like Nucky Thompson, dress alike, with bold suits, tie pins and laple flowers. If you feel like playing the all-american collegiate, then take on the Ivy look. Both are concepts of dressing well, yet they have nothing in common.
Number two is the seasonality: not much you can influence, but your environment certainly has impact on what you wear. If it´s cold and damp outside, you may want to go in flannel or heavier wool - if the sun is blazing and the sky is all blue, linen might be the better choice. The number of layers you put on and the textiles you wear certainly define how you´re looking.
That brings us to number three: the colours. This is a delicate topic, as it is the field in which one can err the most. Over the next few posts, i shall elaborate on how to combine colours. For starters, dark blue and burgundy (as pictured above) are working well together.
Finally, you´ve got your own range of items you can pick from - the more you have, the easier it is to come up with different outfits, naturally.
So, whenever i prepare my next day´s getup (yes, i do that in the evening prior to going to sleep), i think about those four areas - and then start adding pieces to each other. In my case, i often begin with the shirt, add a jacket, fetch the trousers, browse over the tie to end up on the pocket square. Your routine might be different, but i recommend starting with a piece that you really love to wear the next day and add all the others items consecutively. This step by step way ensures that the whole (your outfit) is more than just the sum of its pieces (tie, pocket square, trousers, etc.).
So, how i started today:
Picking up the shirt, adding the jacket. Brown and blue hues are getting along quite well, if they have the right shade. I chose to add a pair of dark blue cord trousers to match the shirt. In comes the cardy to add another layer (seasonality), a burgundy one at that (remember the colours: brown / blue / red in deep, rich tones work well together). To bring these three together, i opted for the dark blue (like the trou) and burgundy striped (the cardy) wool (matching the rather chunky texture of the cardy) tie. In summarization, i now had four pieces complementing each other in terms of colour and texture, the only thing missing being the pocket square. The choice on this one was rather easy: a dark blue would not have stood out from the dark, brown jacket, while a white one would have possibly meant too much contrast to the cardy and tie. All in all, red was the way to go and to add a focal point for the eyes (which means that you wear sth that helps the viewers´ eyes to settle upon), i chose to add one more different pattern (the checkes), being only slightly seen (hence the square fold).
Does this explanation on “Why i wear what i wear” make any sense? If not, let me know. If yes, please indicate as well.
