Is It Winter Is It Fall





 It has been a bit since I wore this red  midi skirt so I just piled on the layers and went for a low key storybook witch look.  I'm not wild about these boots because they don't feel very substantial looking in the outfit - like maybe a visually heavier boot would balance out all of the layers up on top.
 Just one shot of this outfit, featuring the star print tulle skirt and the same boots as above. I feel like the lighter boots work better in this look because it isn't  top heavy s the last outfit and the skirt is quite a bit more delicate.



 I love over the knee boots with leather pants and I like how the big belt worked with the lines of the coat and the big scarf.  I wore my triangle bag with this outfit because the sharper lines felt more in tune with the lines of the jacket's lapel and the rest of the outfit.




 I've been finding some cool star/cosmic pint items at the thrift store lately and I am so pumped about I! I've really been on a kick lately with that style of print and colors so it is exciting to find - I think they had a brief trend in popularity back during the height of twee in the 2009-20012 period and seeing as most of the items I've been found are modcloth or Eskati, that seems to be true. (And on another note, it is wild to find modcloth pieces! I would have loved finding these during that time period and we have so few retail stores in the interior that it feels like a treat when I find things not normally available up here.  Shipping can still be sketchy up here with a lot of retailers either flat out not shipping or charging prices on par with what Canada pays.) This dress is Eskati and has buttons on the bustier and then a great cosmic print on the skirt, I love the dark blues and purples  and they feel like a fun bit of color with my coats.



 Swish swish I'm a witch. This as for the Spooky theme on reddit's Female Fashion Advice subreddit and haha, it's pretty much how I normally dress. I thrifted this and the bigger o-hook belt from Value Village earlier this fall and I've really enjoyed how much they've expanded my outfit range. The dress is a Free people one I found on ebay and the layered skirt really adds a lot of drama to any outfit.



 Our weather is all over the place right now - it's snowing, it's raining, it's 13f, it's over 40f, I don't even know what's going on this year. It's looking like it will be a very unusually warm winter for us which is awesome, that won't hurt my feelings! Anyways, sometimes we have snow and then it melts quickly so there's not a lot of continuality in photos.  This is a take on Hedgewitch winter style, the hedgewitch subculture style really lends itself towards winter burrito style and wearing all of the weird layers and embroidery and lots of cool textures.


 This is one o my favorite looks with this jacket so far, the lace up corset backing is so beautiful and looks awesome in real life. the coat has great sharp lines to it and has a very Victorian riding habit I influence so I think I'd like to try to play that up a little.


 This was apparently very Stevie Nicks witchyness according to all of the comments I got the day I wore it!  The skirt has great movement to it and I like using the darker colors and embroidery to build a good "witchy" outfit.





I wore this dope cloak again and this is one of my favorite outfits wearing it so far.  It was about 6pm when I took these shots so the sun had long set and I forgot how to do dark shots.  I layered the cloak over my All Saints coat again and then wore a lacey dress an my over the knee boots.  I personally love that boot style even though it is supposedly out trend wise.  I like the proportions height wise on myself and I feel like they're just dramatic enough that they add a lot to my outfits. They're also a slight bit warmer than ankle boots so they've got that going for them as well.

  1. Oooh, I was not expecting that corset lace-up on the Victorian style jacket!
    I'm totally into your leather pants goth hobbit look. What a cozy coat to wrap up into. Speaking of, how do leather/faux leather pants hold up in freezing temperatures?

    You're looking good here (and always), and I like that you're finding alternates at styling an outfit with and without a hat. Your bangs look good on you :)

    1. Ha, thank you! I'm going through a hate period with my bangs right now, the cold makes them flat an ugh to work with. Leather pants stay pretty warm for winter - faux ones get pink of "crunchy" and weird feeling at below 0f and I'd rather wear the leather ones at that point but they're great until then!
