Musical World


Today I really wanted to look like a combination of a Greaser and a Soc from The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. The sweet cardigan and pink silk crepe dress are distinctly 'preppy', but the freaky tights and jacket give it some badass oomph. I love the dress so much! The pattern reminds me of a composition book, like one that Harriet the Spy would own. I hope everyone is feeling lovely, because the emergence of Spring is certainly lifting my spirits. See you on the flip side and don't forget to stay gold.

That's a totally reasonable thing to want to dress up as.

the cut of that jacket is really awesome. also I didn't know they had mead in canada, and I don't think they call call them composition books down here. . . what a weird idiosyncrasy.

oh, wait, i just checked and yes, they do call them composition books in the US. whoops.

Oh wow, I've never seen multi colored tights in real life, but I think they are so interesting. They are more exciting than basic tights that for sure!!

hope to hear from you !!

That's an awesome mix of greaser and soc in your outfit. The Outsiders is one of my favorite things to take inspiration from in how I dress. So much goodness there. I did a greaser outfit about a month ago. Your idea to combine the two is genius though.
