blinded by the light

*Ermagersh wind*
Thrifted Forever 21 neon sweater, Vintage leather skirt, Target tights, and Aldo Mignogna wedges.

So it snowed. So what's a girl to wear after the first dusting hits the ground? A neon sweater so you can find her in a blackout and a "practical" leather pencil skirt. OF COURSE.
I'm honestly not the biggest proponent of the neon trend, but when I came across this sweater I was hypnotized. So was my mother. We looked at each other and I knew I would be buying it. Maybe that's why neon made such a comeback - the bright color makes us moths to a flame.
I also realize that my penchant for leather is out of control. It's like the tackiness of the 80's was programmed into my DNA. Right now I have THREE leather skirts (I know right?), a leather jacket (a staple), countless pairs of shoes (don't forget bags!), and a pair of leather shorts (totally awesome). No pants yet, but hey, I wouldn't say no if they were the right style.

Who knew that not brushing my hair could make it look good? In these photos it's at a tangle level of 5. By the end of the day it was at tangle level 10 of 10, 100% mess. It took me 20 minutes to comb it out, so I think I'll stick to brushing on a regular basis (like my teeth).

How has your week been? Mine has been pretty blah. I think it's because of the weather. Maybe this will cheer you up (if you haven't seen it yet, or maybe haven't seen it in awhile). Always helps me.

they're creepy and they're kooky

Thrifted button up layered under old Steve & Barry's long sleeve shirt, thrifted Gap Kids dress, Target thigh highs, and 1950's Capezio shoes. 

I decided to be Wednesday Addams the day before Halloween. I knew I had some things in my closet I could throw together. I was stuck on what dress to wear and then I remembered I had gotten this Gap Kids dress awhile ago for some reason (I'm not quite sure why). The first time I wore it my insurance agent told me that I would be perfect to date his nephew. He's a MORTICIAN and dresses like me. Yes, that's definitely Wednesday approved.

I had fun hating everything and didn't have to buy anything for my costume.
Some people didn't know who I was. I think they need an education in the history of television and awesome 90's movies.

I hope you had a great Halloween. It's one of my favorite holidays!
