black and plaid

I wanted to start out by saying this is my favorite outfit ever, but i say that every post so. But i really do love this one. Everything, except the tights, was bought with Christmas money, and the shirt was from a giveaway i won.

I have been yearning to wear this type of outfit for a long time. Plaid, black, grungy, preppy, topped with a wide brim black hat. Violet E  is a huge inspiration for this look of course. Her grungy, black wardrobe makes me despise my clothes. (But then i give in, and love my clothes again because i cant stay mad at them for long)







I finally got a leather jacket! Despite the fact that my dreams have come true and i own one, i'm still learning to love it. It's a bit small and cropped, and I wanted it to be loose and baggy and longer.  Returning it would be too much of a hassle though, so each day i try it on and stare at myself in the mirror, and am reminded i own this thing I've wanted forever. I will learn to fully love it eventually.




And im loving the plaid skirt too. Lately, i have been obsessing over plaid! I never cared for it much, until that thrift store trip i wrote about a few posts ago, where i came across garment after garment of beautiful plaid. And i think it just bombarded my brain so much, that the experience has rendered me plaid obsessed.

I scour though ebay and lust over the plaid skirts and blazers which i cant buy because i spent all my money. I was lucky enough to buy a plaid blazer with the last few pennies to my name from Christmas. Its a size 12, and im not, but i will make it work! It will be perfectly over sized and when i get it in the mail, i'll bury my face in it and soak up the plaid energies my life currently lacks.
