Skeleton Closet: Embracing My Inner 'Spooky' Child


In the famous (to me) words of my momma (and probably other mommas too): "One must always expand their horizons because you never know what you'll fall in love with"


Today I was experimenting with color. I bought this shirt during my last trip to Walmart; as you can tell, and probably have seen if any of you ever visit walmart, this shirt is for little girls... I fit little girl's XL, heh.
I bought this along with another ribcage shirt from the boys sections-- I fit a M boys. Both were $4.

Anyway-- this was entirely too cute to pass up, and although I seldom, if ever, wear t-shirts; I am making a huge effort try new things. Since I've been making and buying some great t-shirts, I've been trying to incorporate ways to wear them to suit me, and simultaneously shuffle in some color.

Obviously this shirt doesn't represent my age well, but I figured what the hell, let's embrace that inner spooky child.


Since I've been doing a lot with my make up and hair, I thought that this look might do well with a beehive of sorts; I don't have a ton of experience or tools for hair, so I opted for a faux beehive using the high ponytail method, and topped that off with a bow that is showing up quite often in my outfit posts, hehe.

I took some colors from the palette of the shirt, and used them in my make up. A hot pink, sky blue, and bubble gum purple.

 I used the purple on my bottom lid, and eyebrows to effect. So colorful! Eeep!
Another small indulgence to my inner child would be that of Halloween snow globes... I love collecting them!

$1 each from Dollar Tree
I am such a sucker for Halloween kitsch...

What I'm wearing:

  • T-shirt: Walmart
  • Cardigan: Ardene
  • Skirt: Fairweather
  • Tights: from my mother
  • Necklace & hair bow: self-made

  2. You look cute, and I think, it suits you. ^^
    I like funky, colorful clothing, but I think, a splash of color can add to any asual gothy look as well.

  3. oooh I love your makeup! Lately I've been trying to incorporate more colour into my makeup as well. A friend had given me that exact same snow globe for my birthday last year (...the one with the cat on the side) but clumsy me, I broke it!! I still have it though.
