Outfit Post (with a nod to Filthy Victorians)

I decided that a more sensible thing to be doing with outfit posts is to put them together in batches and post them occasionally, instead of spamming my face all over this blog every day!

So without further ado, here are some outfits from last week, sparing you the days I spent in bed with a stonking cold (my voice sounds like Yoda at the moment, not even kidding) and the typical grab-first-clean-black-shirt-and-jeans-because-you-overslept-AGAIN day that I seem to have once a week minimum. XP

Work, followed by dinner with friends
I never have time to change after work so I try to come up with outfits that are warm, comfy, practical and pretty, which isn't always easy! However I liked this one. ^^

Oh, and look what came in the post! Abney Park's The Wrath of Fate! <3

Honestly, the amount of times I've been told I could never hold down a customer-facing role because of my piercings and attire... it's been almost two years now so I'd say I'm doing all right. ;-D

GothPocket said...

I adore your outfits!

Alexandriaweb said...

The Tartan skirt is fab :)

Chloris said...

I love all these outfits so much, I can't even pick a favourite! I must say I LOVE the hat for the birthday party. So jaunty! Might need to git me one of those. I saw something similar at a vintage shop once, but it was $90 :(

And I don't mind seeing your face every day :)

These are lovely outfits! You have developed your style in a very nice way, they fits you. Loved the grey, the second and filthy victorians most.

Ah,you have fabulous fashion sense.

akumaxkami said...

I love your style. Always so awesome!

Lady Bethezda @ Bethezdas Preoccupations said...

Very well put together outfits. You look awesome. Thanks for sharing!

Lauren said...

I love your hat! Your outfits are always amazing! :)

Cassandra said...

In high school, my best friend and I had a favorite expression: dark whimsy. I think your first few outfits really captured that expression.

... Now that I think about it, the very fact that we *used* an expression like that probably should have been a clue that I had some goth tendencies. What can I say, I can be a little slow sometimes.

Cassandra said...

By the way, congratulations on your haggling achievement!

Maggie said...

Love the frilly skirts, especially the checkered one. I'm not a very feminine dresser, but if I was, I'd buy a few skirts like yours :) Oh, and the military hat is just up my street.

Jessie Aaker said...

I love the outfits! Especially the first and Victorian!

Natasha said...

You look really brilliant in the tartan skirt : )

Vulcan_Butterfly said...

I DIE for your military-themed outfit, too cute! I want those tights really badly! The high-waisted plaid skirt is just fantastic as well. Great outfits!

I normally don't do this, but: wow, you look totally awesome - and you seem to be an interesting person as well. Lucy to have found this blog :)
