What We Do In The Darkness Will Come To Light

Even in the dead of night,
If we can make it to the morning,
We can get things right.

With NYFW upon us I retire to my own bedroom, not a hotel room amidst a concrete jungle. Another year of spending the week not making the pilgrimage to Lincoln Center and avoiding all that has become the “peacocking” of Fashion Week. If I were to attend, though, you’d bet your butt I’d be in a uniform like this one of cozy velvet culottes, a warmth-enhancing turtleneck and a statement coat, perusing the newest collections in the most professional of ways. In reality, I’ll be working my real job in fashion, staying warm and snowless, and prepping for my upcoming trip. Here’s hoping South Africa Fashion Week is less of a zoo of observant, hungry passionates and more of serious sartorial business work.

Death Is Her Boyfriend

Completely enjoying everything black and winged lately; can ya tell? I wore this outfit to baby sit a couple of days before Halloween; a little chic take on a Vampira meets a Bat Girl.

Dad’s Sweater

Ever since I was about 4 years old I’ve pondered the letters and design of this sweater. I may never know, but it will always be a nostalgic piece for me. I wore this out on a very unsuccessful trip to the local thrift store. If you follow me on my twitter you may have noticed that I found a gorgeous sheer maxi. Brought it to the counter, it was rang up, bagged, everything. Smile on my face. Then, the credit card machine was down. WOMP WOMP WOMP.

Also I literally CANNOT STOP wearing this Covergirl lipstick of my mom’s. It goes with my hair and is just dark enough to give me the right amount of edge without being overpowering.

BatGirl

This dress is my new favorite dress. $9.95 at H&M it was quite the steal! It’s velvet body and drapey sheer sleeves and wings screamed my name. size 6 and slightly big? I didn’t care. It was MINE.

I wore this on a two-party night and my ensemble was well received. I honestly want to wear it everyday, though, and it’s going to be quite a challenge not to!

I’m Froze by Desire, No Need to Leave

Please excuse the poor quality of these images, I’m not sure what has happened. But, I felt cute in this outfit; a play on of the exposed collar with a shrunken sweater.

Also, it is freaking cold here in NYC. I might die soon, just as a warning.
