Everyday Steampunk 2

  I'm at it again! At this rate maybe I should invest in a pair of round spectacle sunglasses.

  This pink Fei skirt came from the same thrift trip that spawned Battleskirt Galactica. That was a good trip.

  I wore it with my jeweled Express locket that goes with everything, a lace and stud leather Arden B. belt, Naya Lightning boots (with little grey boot socks!) and a triple lace scarf from OzzOn Japan. Over everything I wore a military-ish jacket by promod.

  I grow more enamored with this circle skirt every time I style it. It's foofy (is that the technical term?) below a fitted waist with little bucklets. It's the exact length that I feel age appropriate but still young-ish and fun. Its color is very pale, and I originally thought about overdyeing, but I really like how it goes with dark browns.

  Oh man, scarves that are curly and have bits of lace hanging off and are made of multiple fabrics. I don't know how to describe how much they delight me, save I never, ever thought about buying scarves as a fashion accessory until the first time I saw one.

  Dangly lace scarves are almost as high on the Oh God, Aya list as homeless skirts for my long-suffering family, but they support me in my fashion choices, even if they openly dislike them. That's love.

  I apologize for my unfriendly face and lion's mane. I thought I looked fine at the time. I think I'm still recouping from my semester because I slept for 12 hours that day and my hair was having none of this "theory of gravity" business. Stupid scientists think they're so smart. I hope they let me into their club.

  1. Oh I like this look on you so much! That jacket and skirt are divine. Thank you for joining Adrienne and me for the "How I Wear My: Florals" post. It was great to have you with us and I hope you'll be back for July! XO, Jill

  2. You look very pretty ... I really don't see the unfriendly face and mane that you mention in your post though. If I were younger I would go out and find exactly the same look as you are wearing here ... I love everything about it!

  3. Oh! I like this SO much. I've been trying to figure out how to bring some steampunk in my everyday (I seem to go either full costume or am just wearing my standard contemporary clothes). You've achieved such a great look here!

  4. LOVE this outfit. You did a great job styling these pieces together.
