Skeleton Closet: Catching Up + Monthly Theme

It's barely the start of December and already things have been awful busy-- but at least they are fun.

The boi and I spent this past week in Phoenix, thanks to his work; he worked, while I got to explore parts of Phoenix I have never known about, and probably would never discover if it wasn't for the recently implemented light rail.
Anyway, it was still fair and warm down in the valley so while I couldn't really wear my more heavier outfits, it was still cool enough that I could sport all black without my parasol.

We arrived home yesterday, and I came online to find that I have fallen behind with all the blogs I follow!
Still, it's not as though there was any urgency... I just feel a little out of the loop.
I figured I'd kick off this week by participating in Sophistique Noir's monthly theme (which I haven't partaken in before).

Lucky enough, this is one theme I really enjoy! Long maxi style skirts are a staple element in my wardrobe; it's a shame I have switched to such drastic warm weather, and sadly as it's gone, I don't have my entire favorite collection present. I've already sported a couple in past posts, so this time I wanted to show one I haven't used yet;


I found it thrift, and it easily became a favorite. I am also wearing the new coffin purse I was in the midst of creating in my former post. I used it exclusively this past week, and it held up perfectly to all the bumps and scuffs public transit and walking dealt out.



What I am Wearing:
  • Skirt: Thrift
  • Jacket: Fairweather Co.
  • Waist belt: Fairweather Co.
  • Shoes: Flea Market
  • Necklace: Self-made
  • Purse: Self-made

    1. Gosh yes, I love thrift store shopping! The only reason I bought brand new clothing is that either it was as cheap as a thrift find, or I needed to buy it for work (policy of wearing the stores clothing while you work)

      Thanks! I was very pleased with the outcome as well =)

  2. Your outfit is pretty, but that purse is simply amazing! ;)
    On your DeviantArt page you said it's a resin skill; did you make it yourself? :)

    1. Thank you =)

      No, sadly I haven't reached that point of curiosity where I want to learn to cast things-- I ordered a cast some time ago intending to make a jewelry piece from it, but it ended up just sitting around... until I decided it would look neat on a coffin bag, hehe.

  4. I know that your post is about the skirt but omg I can't take my eyes off your bag! It's gorgeous. It has lace (<3) and a bow (<3) and it's coffin shaped (<3)! It's the most beautiful bag I've ever seen in my entire life :D!

      I adore the little skull-- I felt so bad that it wasn't going seen, and now everyone can =)

    1. Thank you =)
      Yeah, it took me a while to garner the motivation; there wasn't much that was inspiring me either, but I'm really glad I could for you!

      I don't think it's talent so much as a fierce determination! Heheh.
