An Unconventional Holiday Outfit

lace top: mom
leopard print skirt: F21
sheer socks: ...
lace up boots: dolce vita for target
cross necklace: my piano teacher :)

this is, from the title, a completely unconventional holiday outfit. but of course since i received my boots in the mail yesterday (YES, i am fully aware that i am about half a year off of the combat boot trend, whatever), i wanted to create a look that wasn't so "christmas-y".

the sketches were done at my grandparents house during my last visit. i'm thinking of putting some of them into my portfolio... which ones ?


FIRST, there are three things to excuse.
1.) my horrendous posting during these last months. love you readers!
2.) my weird poses in the above pictures.... i was becoming un-accustomed to posing in front of a camera. ha.
3.) what looks like a food baby in that skirt (that's one of the downsides of bandage skirts -___-)

thank you ALL so much for being a part of the past year's blogging experience. it has given me true joy to make friends and acquaintances through this blog, as well as receiving some presents ;) everytime i am down i look back at this page and it inspires me to go on--as does looking at your guys' blogs too.

happy holidays to EVERYONE--fashion blogosphere or not! stay safe and warm during the winter :)

+++.... i need a camera so badly... !! what model should i get?! .... price LIMIT i would say is like $550

thanks and merry christmas/happy holidays again!!

you are one amazing artist, keep doing what you are doing. and i would recommend the canon g12 as a new camera.. its kinda like just a point-and-shoot camera and in between of a dslr camera.. :)

Liking the outfit especially the sheer socks. Speaking of food baby, it's normal to have one during the Holidays. It is NOT normal if you never got one yet, I had like 20 food babies, haha.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas!!

Ah, you look ridiculously FIERCE. Not exactly the traditional "christmas outfit" BUT I LOVE IT.

And your sketches are fierce as well! Are they done in ball point pen?
