85; Procession

At this point, I grew bored of the editing and decided to experiment a little...

Top: Chaser ( • Vest: Claire's • Pants: Urban Outfitters • Jeffrey Campbell Tapestry Litas: • Circle shades: the Garage, Cambridge MA • Choker: handmade, Cape Cod (Hyannis) MA • Hamsa necklace: DIY (pendant by Blue Moon Beads)

If you follow me on Formspring, you might recognise this outfit a little. I used it to respond to someone's question asking how I put outfits together. (And if you did watch it, you'll see that I picked Litas over Stevies!)

I've felt like crap for the past few weeks. Working lots, strange shifts in weather leaving me feeling crappy, my mother's health deteriorating, lots of uncomfortable and stressful stuff going on in the living situation I'm in... Just, life. It's left me being so neglectful of so many things involving my blog. I'm constantly post-poning outfit shoots and whatever, on the excuse that I don't feel like going out. I've left DIY projects and jewelry making half-finished because I'm too tired. (And I ended up having a huge mix-up with some supplies I bought, which left me a little miffed.)

Things just kind of suck right now, dear readers. I crave a new job, new threads, a new place to reside, and feeling energetic and not sluggish and tired.

And what sucks the most is that I look at the clothes in my closet and go, "ugh." I have to ferret as much money away into my savings as I can, and being on the internet just shows me clothes that I would love but can't afford. I'm trying to stick to budget stuff on Etsy.

I hate to make such a complain-y post. I'm just so frustrated lately, especially with my clothing. I need a revamp, and I don't know how to go about it. I feel like I'm going insane. I need to get back on the ball, get myself into a productive and optimistic mindset. I think this is fasionably-late-seasonal-affective-dissorder or something.

Oy. Sorry about this stupid post. I think I just needed to vent. So, uh...dig my faux-fur?

Oh yeah, I'm re-wearing things again, mainly due to my style block. I keep rewearing the same few things that I love, but I don't typically photograph. Probably because I've been constantly wearing my Harley Davidson tee. You have no idea how often I wear that one. You'll be seeing it again shortly. I think vintage tees are the one thing that gets me excited lately.


Title reference; I'm probably the one person here who is not only familiar, but holds a preference for Queen's early albums. ('73-'75.) The glam rock, the glorious glam rock. I can't get over it. ♥


  1. Aww maan, I know exactly what you mean!! I've been feeling kind of tired and sluggish lately too, and it definitely effects my blog. Everytime I try to sit down and type out a good post, I just can't be bothered because I'm too tired. I hope things get better for you soon!

  2. first off, I love this outfit, even more so after watching that video, and understanding the order and priority certain aesthetic choices were made in. i am all about videos like that, so keep it up, fine lady. Vintage tees and glam rock just sound like the perfect prescription for outfit blah-ness. That, or more cowbell.


  3. loveeeeeeeeeee your mixture of textures, so rad.

  4. The trousers = mind blowingly cool. Just saying.

  5. Being bummed out is no fun. If it's any consolation, your outfit looks awesome.

  6. Sorry you've had such a bad time of it lately, love. You should take some time for you. If you ever need to vent, you know where to find me.

    xoxo -

  7. i hopethings will get better for you...i feel your stress babe <3
    i'm not having a great period myself...just keep it on, karma will get back at you for sure :)

  8. Sorry you're having such a hard time Kat! I often find myself in ruts and it's hard to shake them...I find doing something to get out of my routine helps...maybe taking a little day trip somewhere...or even trying to ignite creativity by starting a new book, going to see a movie you wouldn't normally see, seeing some live music or something like that......or I just take the opposite route and lay around watching endless episodes of Buffy and being mopey until eventually I snap out of it. Haha. Anyway, feel better soon my dear! This outfit is freaking AMAZING, no one would ever know you were in a rut when you look so badass.

    Lotsa love,

  9. love it! your hair and choker are perfection!

  10. Ugh, know how you feel baby girl. Just gotta take it day by day. Anywho, you're killin it with the lace bell bottoms and the faux fur. That choker is doopppppeeeee!
