My outfits this weekend have all been quite dark and slinky. Without really meaning to, I have spent the whole weekend swathed in draping layers, velvet, silk and heavy jewelery.
I have been watching a lot of the Tudors and it was staring to rub off on my style decisions. I started my day with a bath, and imagined that I was Katharine of Aragon, soaking in a huge copper tub filled with rose petals. Then I dressed myself in layers of heavy velvet and silk, and pretened that I was Anne Boleyn, with my ladies in waiting dressing my hair and helping me into my clothes. Finally, I waited for Ross to arrive whilst lying on the couch watching more Tudors, pretending that my loungeroom was a castle and I was waiting to receive my prince.
I am wearing
– Grey velvet jacket from Tree of Life
– Black bell-sleeved top from Ishka
– Black velvet skirt (thrifted)
– Blue sequinned flats from Target
– Lapis lazuli ring (gifted)
– Amethyst ring.
On Sunday we went shopping and I saw some of the most gorgeous jewellery. Watching the Tudors makes me lust after the sumptuous garments, and the jewellery is particularly decadent. There are rings with enormous, rough-cut stones in ornate settings, draping necklaces studded with precious stones and tiaras and crowns of the most elaborate kind. I need to find myself a gorgeous crown ,and then find an excuse so that I can wear it.
I was feeling a little haughty and self-important. I decided to channel Narcissa Malfoy while I was getting dressed, mixing long, black drapery with corsets and netting. I wanted to look sophisticated, snobbish and utterly untouchable.
I am wearing:
– Black floor-length dress from Purple Patch
– Grey cardigan from Cotton On (belted over dress)
– Black leather corset belt
– Swan Song fascinator from Dangerfield
– Black Nine West patent leather heels
– Red leopard print ring from Diva
– Cubic zirconia ring
I was off to uni today, and not really feeling like it. I had been thinking a lot over the weekend about the Addams Family, and I wanted to do a sort of relaxed tribute to Morticia. This is what I came up with:
I am wearing:
– Morticia Addams t-shirt from Pulp Kitchen
– Black long-sleeved stocking top (home made)
– Black slip dress (thrifted)
– Black and white striped socks
– Black Dr Martens boots
– Onyx ring
– Red leopard print ring
– Amethyst ring
– Silver square ring
I went for a toned-down version of Morticia’s makeup for daytime. She really does have one of the most fun makeup looks to recreate. Maybe I will do a tutorial for you guys if you are interested?
Today actually turned out to be pretty good. I got loads of work done and finished an assignment. I handed another assignment in. Ross came to uni to meet me for lunch. I bought a gorgeous book I have been eyeing forever for just $13 and all my classes went swimmingly. All in all, a pretty good day.
