Wearing a jumble of thrifted and vintage stuff
I have a really intense love of putting together odd, mismatched three piece suits.

Skirt, bag, necklace: Black Peace Now
Blouse: Innocent World
Socks: Jane Marple (they have tulips on them, and little bows)
Shoes: Dr Martens
I've not dressed up much recently, mostly due to a mix of 1. obviously, Covid, 2, shite mental health and 3, weird gender feels that make wearing anything EGL just seem wrong on me. Anyway, I noticed this skirt online this morning in a GLB scan (issue 6 from 2002) and realized it was one I'd bought recently from ClosetChild for literally 300 yen or something, just crazy cheap. It was rank 'D' condition apparently and the picture was terrible, but I took a chance and after stitching up a bit of hem and lint rolling 20 years of dust out of it, it looks absolutely mint condition. So I'm happy.
I put this bustier on because I wanted to try it in an outfit finally, since I absolutely adore it. Another cheap find, I've got good luck and I'm (too) impulsive. I sense a theme. I took it off immediately lol (as well as the shoes and bag), so I could sit and do work. I really miss going places. Grumble grumble, et cetera.

Coat: Jane Marple
Blouse: Angelic Pretty
You can't really see my outfit, but I just wanted to take a nice photo since I adore the look of a little bit of white lace peeking out of black velveteen.

Blouse: Innocent World
Bustier: Jane Marple
Necklace: Alice and the Pirates
Shoes: Dr. Martens
I finally got this skirt that was a dream item for so long!! It showed up on ClosetChild and I leapt on it immediately after it was uploaded, and then it took absolutely ages to get to me in the mail so I'm extremely relieved to just have it in my hands. I mean, my two favourite things; cats and red tartan, so of course I *needed* it...

Blouse: Jane Marple
Tie: some random tie from a Putumayo thing (not very organized)
I just got a tripod for my DSLR so I played around taking some timed pictures. The outfit was not planned, this is what I mope about the house in. Usually something ouji style because shorts are easier to do stuff in than a skirt. This blouse has little glass marbles for buttons, I love it.

Bustier: Handmade by me
Skirt: Heart E
Blouse: Innocent World
Socks: Innocent World
I just finished sewing this bustier so I thought I'd coord it! I found out real gobelin is quite hard to work with, with it being so thick and fraying so fast. I'm going to make a matching headdress next! It might be a Covid lockdown and snowing/sleet outside but I'm wearing a straw hat and in my head i'm holidaying in Leidenschaftlich. Lol. Also, we got a new bed and mattress finally, after years and years of saying I was going to replace the old hand-me-down white one. I much prefer this victorian style metal frame.

Bolero: Victorian Maiden
Blouse: BPN (not that you can see it)
Hat: Alice and the Pirates
Necklace: Moi meme moitie
They're not super popular but I just love top hats so much. This one is a beaten up, extremely old AATP one, which I altered by cutting off the corsage and pinning it to the back instead. I really wish I had a cane, because that would go so well with this. But that's one of those purchases I keep putting off because I mean, really when will I use it, beyond posing with it..? Lmao. Also, I just got this lipstick recently and I'm obsessed. It's Jet Set by Nyx, in case you were wondering.

Blouse: Innocent World
Bag: Betty's Blue
Socks, shoes, bloomers: Offbrand
It's my and my partner's 6 year anniversary today, but we're in lockdown, so we ended up working lol. Well, we'll probably get takeaway and watch a movie tonight, which is comfier than going out anyway. I just realized you can see my scatterbrained writing on my hand, oh dear. That's a bad habit I've had since I was young. My dumb ass also held the bag the wrong way around. It has a cute Betty's Blue embroidery on the other side. Why are coord pictures always slightly skew whiff...? Oh well lol, c'est la vie.

Everything thrifted apart from my shoes which are Pleaser Victorian 120s
I'm reminded of like, Siouxsie Sioux, 80s Anne Rice, or Nancy from The Craft with this outfit, (I'm obsessed with the black lipliner she's wearing that one scene where they're in the car, magically running red lights). Oh also, the lady from whom I bought this green and purple sleeveless shirt thing, she told me all these stories about the fun things she did back in the 90s, being a rebellious little goth, it was brilliant.

Skirt: Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Karami skirt
Headdress: Innocent world
Necklace: Moi Meme Moitie
I just did housework and some drawing today, so I threw the shoes on for a photo, lol.
It's finally cold in the UK, though my area is in a lockdown, so I can't even pissing go out or meet anyone. And it's my birthday in a week. This shit sucks man. Anyway I'm going to try to consciously care less about it, because this wankery is here to stay, at least for the forseeable future. I've got lots of crafty plans that I'm going to start soon, to take my mind off things.

Jacket: Black Peace Now
Blouse: Peace Now
Shorts: Black Peace Now
Boots: Dr Martens
Tie: Peace Now
Excuse the bad quality picture and the fact that my bedroom is a mess, haha. I was in a rush to take this before I went out. I met up with my friend again and we hung out in the city. I wanted to wear some of the new items I've recieved in the mail recently, so I wore entirely BPN which makes me very happy. RIP to the best brand. :-( I was going for sort of military ouji, I felt very Hellsing in this outfit. I LOVE the braces on these shorts, and the way that this blouse looks with a tie.

Boots: Dr Martens

Bluh, my health ended up getting worse so I've not been out much since the last entry other than to buy groceries. I wore this to meet my dear friend, and had a really nice time getting out of the apartment. We got boba and street food for the first time in like six months (Chinese mushroom & egg steamed buns), I'm really glad that place survived the lockdown since lots of my other favourite places have now shut down. I'm trying to dig myself out of the hole I've been in, get back into the things I love to do—drawing, cooking, sewing. It's hard but things are on an upward trend, and I'm hoping my flare-up improves soon so I can dress cool again regularly. I've been binge reading Dorohedoro again the past few days, which has been my new obsession for a while. The manga seriously rocks. It's really inspiring artistically too. I highly reccomend it!

JSK: Metamorphose - Regimental Stripe Print JSK (mini length)
Socks: Innocent world - Angel Rose socks
I haven't been able to get dressed properly for over a week due to mental (and) health issues, so I'm only just getting a chance to wear this new JSK. I was expecting it to be short since it's the mini length version but it's REALLY short lol. Anyway, it doesn't matter too much because I think it looks so cute with peeking bloomers. I love the Regimental stripe series so much, it kind of reminds me of a school uniform. It's got this really adorable little Metamorphose crest appliqué thing on it. Though, it's kind of weird for me to enjoy that since I HAD to wear a school uniform for most of my life. My school uniform was pretty shit, just like my school life, so I'll just pretend I went to a idyllic boarding school and wore the regimental stripe series as my uniform, and that my entire childhood didn't actually happen. Suck that, British school system. You don't exist in my brain!
