After weeks of wearing brights, whites, and pastel pinks, I finally reverted back to my more subtle, goth-inspired tendencies. Did away with all the accessories but one braided belt and a cross necklace. Sometimes people ask if I ever get lazy with an outfit and opt for sweatpants instead of combat boots and a leather jacket. I think going monochrome is my idea of 'getting lazy,' because it's so simple to create an outfit with just one color scheme. That said, an outfit with prints a-plenty can be just as creative as an outfit with one solid from head-to-toe.

My style has evolved so profoundly throughout this past year (arguably for better or worse,) but a miniskirt, floppy hat, and cardigan -- all black -- will always feel familiar to me. I wouldn't exactly call this theme "timeless," surely sheer blouses will be passe in two years, but for now it captures an aesthetic that I'd hope most people can appreciate. Goth is nothing to be afraid of.
The best part about these shoes isn't the wooden platform, laces, and leather... it's the fact that they were only $10!!!! There's absolutely NO NEED to break the bank when looking for a pair of black booties. Mine are practically the poster children for proving that with alotta lookin, perfection can and does come at a low expense. Check out the rest of the selection at Natural-Colour!
