Galaxy QuestPosted: December 17, 2021 Filed under: Clothes | Tags: black, black galaxy sweater, black-and-silver oxfords, gray, gray pleated velvet skirt Leave a comment
I bought a bunch of these pleated velvet skirts last season but never got around to wearing them all. You may think that it’ll teach me not to buy multiples in different colors, but of course this year I made the same mistake again, with a different item (you’ll see.) Ah well. At least that means I will always have replacements handy.
Not much to say about the outfit itself – I just took the silver from the skirt and built the outfit around that. Since my sweater features the galaxy, I couldn’t help titling the post after one of my favorite movies of all time. I use it in my teaching at least once a year, and my friends from film school and I still constantly quote it at each other.
Yin Yang FishPosted: August 20, 2021 Filed under: Clothes | Tags: black, black tee, black-and-silver oxfords, brooch, white, white striped culottes Leave a comment
This is my typical “at home” outfit these days – a pair of culottes (preferably with an elastic waist) and a T-shirt. However, it’s not very blog-worthy, so I tucked in my shirt, put on some real shoes, and added a pin for the photos, keeping the black-and-white theme. It was raining that day, so I figured my yin-yang fish pin would be appropriate. It is one of a pair of “yin-yang” pins that my sister gave me a while ago – one of cats, which I wore once back in the winter, and one of fish – and I may wear them together one of these days. Should be a fun look, right, cats and fish?
The Black QueenPosted: April 9, 2021 Filed under: Clothes | Tags: belt, black, black houndstooth skirt, black turtleneck, black-and-silver oxfords Leave a comment
It’s rare these days that I’d wear an outfit without a brooch or a pin, but I kinda liked the minimalism of this outfit and didn’t want to spoil it with any other accessory. It’s inspired by the costumes of The Queen’s Gambit – another show from last year (other than Normal People) that I watched purely for the fashion. I mean, I know nothing about chess, and just like with Normal People, I find the main character’s tendency to self-destruct irritating and unbelievable, rather than sympathetic. But, like I said, the costumes are fabulous. Beth Harmon never wears anything exactly like this in the series, but the houndstooth skirt is kind of similar to her many chess-themed costumes, so I thought this would be a nice nod.
