Skeleton Closet: Two Brains, One Body

It's been a little over a month since I posted any outfits.
There's a reason for that, and it's that I've been in a 'uniform' of pj pants and large t-shirts in all that time.

... Well... a great majority of it, anyway.
But I haven't exactly put a lot of effort into looking interesting when an opportunity does appear.

The day before yesterday I, yet again, dressed up purely to break free from the status quo I always seem to end up in.

I really don't know why I keep allowing myself to fall into this trap-- probably because it's so much easier not giving a damn than it is to give a damn.

Or maybe because I've always been living with two very argumentative brains; one that likes the idea of never leaving home and playing games all day, and the other that wants to experience life and accomplish tangible goals. Another likely reason why my speech is exponentially different than my text.

Obviously, it's the latter brain that's responsible for writing my blog, because it's always been the best excuse to just do something. Even defying my husband's wishes.

He doesn't particularly like this outfit, and I consider it one of my favorites.
He says it's too revealing, and hates the collar.

The blouse is all lace, and has two drapes of chiffon on the front. I don't like wearing a camisole underneath because I feel it really detracts from the beauty of it. It's a really great blouse to feel sexy in, while hiding my triple tiered belly very well. An unfortunate consequence of the culmination of no exercise, and bad posture on a computer, game console, and sewing machine-- too, too many years spent slouched.

Luckily it's not too late to change that... but I wonder which of my brains will win the argument for that decision.

Also, check out my relatively  new kickers.

My youngest brother bought me them for Christmas last year.
Lace and studs on a boot?! Hell yes.
They're a touch big (size 6-- I'm size 5 to 5.5), but apparently they didn't come in smaller sizes. Oh well! I padded them to feel a little more snug.

What I'm Wearing:
  • Blouse: Sirens
  • Skirt: Second hand
  • Boots: Gift from youngest brother
  • Spike collar: Self made

How many brains does it take to make a decision...


  1. I didn't notice the front of your shirt was see-through until you mentioned your husband said it was revealing! I don't think it's very noticeable, maybe if you wore a bright pink bra underneath, ha ha.

    Lace boots! How lovely!

    1. I guess he's not used to me seeing my bra through a blouse lol
      Mild cleavage is usually as far as I go, even for formal wear.
      Heh, I don't think I even own even one colored bra!

  2. You know what? Your outfit is stunning, who cares whether someone else likes it or not ;)! The best thing about it is that it's revealing, and the collar makes it even more "sexy". I like it a lot and I think you look so good in it!
    Also, those booties are lovely, all wrapped up in black lace <3

    1. True enough! It feels nice every blue moon to spice my look up, heheh. Thank you =}

  3. I love that dress. To me, it's not too sexy or reveiling but I guess my man would have agreed with your. Those boots looks great!

    1. Maybe the thought that other men might be looking and thinking the same thing-- but I haven't had a chance to go out in this outfit yet... so, eheh.
      Thank you! =D

  4. I don't understand...I was sure I had commented on this post..? Hmm, I must be getting old.

    Anyhoo - I love those kickers!

  5. Hey, there's nothing wrong with wearing something a bit revealing every now and then! I like the outfit.
