I dream of a world in which I have a Look. A Vibe. A Fashion. A Thing of some goddamn kind, anyway. As I’m a fan of the whole multiverse concept, I believe that that world probably exists, but sadly, it’s not this world.
Once in a while, though, I have a day of Aesthetic. Today is 21st Century Gibson Girl, courtesy of twisting my hair up into a bun (which I haven’t done in forever) and my ankle-length, kickpleated-to-the-hip, poofed-shoulder, princess-seamed black velvet-collared coat.
People really give you a long look, when you’re wearing an ankle-length flowing coat.
I couldn’t get a good picture of the whole ensemble without going and finding a mirror, which I was too lazy to do, but nothing is perfect. And also I’m quite fond of those sunglasses, even though after two years of having them I’m still not really used to prescription sunglasses and think I’m wearing contacts and am thus confused when I take them off and can’t see clearly. :)
We have here proof positive that I redyed my stripe brown and left the temples grey for an Old School Rogue Effect, although honestly, I really miss my stripe. But I like the temples. :)
Honestly, I think my Ideal Aesthetic is sort of Retro Matrix. That could be thing, right?
