It’s time for this month’s fashion inspirations! I’m working hard on dieting right now in hopes that this summer I can really look like the petite, spooky, pastel grump I aim to be! Anywho– here are a few of my inspirations of the month!
1.) April Ludgate
April for April! She’s a fashion inspiration, AND a life inspiration! Aubrey Plaza is really really gorgeous and literally everything that comes out of her character April’s mouth gives breaths life into my grumpy bones! There are tumblrs that track her outfits each episode (but usually they are expensive pieces from Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie… I’m more of a Goodwill and Ross Dress For Less kind of gal).
2.) Aly Antorcha
Apparently I’m like WAY out of touch, because I pinned a picture of this gal on ages ago and only just now looked her up for the purpose of this post! Apparently she’s tumblr-famous? And maybe not-well-liked, according to Urban Dictionary? To me, that’s all beside the point, because her hair is WAY gorgeous! Wow!
3.) Megan James
Megan James is part of an electronic group called Purity Ring (which you should totally check out, by the way) and I’m totally obsessed with her look! That hair, that hair!
Who or what are your inspirations this month??
So I’ve been seeing this cute linkup going around called, “If My Blog was an Outfit.” The linkup was created by Hairspray and Highheels and there are lots of cool outfits to go check out, go look look look!
So anywho, here’s the outfit I created!
I love pastel colors and feminine colors, especially pink! I’m sure you can tell, just by looking at my blog. But I’m also a grump and a jerk and I curse and I complain and like to mix hard with soft. I like the juxtaposition of being cute, but a bit spooky and intimidating! So here are my picks:
Leather Jacket – My dad’s side of the family are an interesting bunch, made up mostly of bikers and gearheads! Leather jackets are just a staple.
Abstract Batman Shirt – While I do consider myself a geek, I don’t wear that title on the outside very often. Never-the-less, I like to represent for my man Bruce every now and again!
Pink Tulle Skirt – Despite being a geek and being a total sour-puss, I do like to keep things delicate and feminine as well. What’s more feminine than pink tulle?!
Black Leggings – Gotta cover up them legs, ya know?
Combat Boots – I wear combat boots every single day. I’ve worn the same pair since I was about 15. They’re old paratrooper jump boots and they’re worn out as hell. But I can’t go without.
Black headband – Just a lil somethin.
Octopus Necklace – My boyfriend got me this necklace a while back and I wear it every day! It’s become a signature for me!
You should join in too!
Hey dudes! It’s so lovely outside right now and I feel crazy motivated in all aspects of my life, which is totally unlike my typical lazy bum self. One of the areas in my life that I’ve never worked hard on is cultivating a “look” for myself. I’ve always admired people who had a “look” and really dressed themselves and made themselves up to make people see them how they want to be seen.
That’s going to be my big goal for the year. Dress and do my makeup and hair in a way that brings out who I am, instead of taking no risks and just wearing clothes that fit. I know it sounds like a petty goal, but I’m painfully shy and have a lot of body issues, so building confidence is a huge thing for me!
Anyway, each middle-of-the-month, I’m gonna be posting the things and people that have been inspiring how I want to look! It’ll probably change over time, as tastes are wont to do, but there ya have it! Maybe I’ll become confident enough to do OOTD posts eventually, haha!
So without further ado, here’s my March Fashion Inspirations!
Ugh, I just love this girl’s look so much! So interesting!
I’d love to be cute but with a hint of spookiness. Wednesday has that kind of dead, spooky look I’m going after.
I looooooove pastel hair, oh my gosh. If you couldn’t tell, though, I’ve got my heart set on peach hair in the very near future. Look out for it ;D
My question for y’all is, who and what are your fashion inspirations?
