Yes, I know it’s St. Patrick’s Day, but I don’t have a single green item anywhere in my wardrobe; not even an accessory. Please accept today’s outfit with a hint of blue instead. I do promise to eat lots of potatoes tonight in celebration of my Irish heritage.
For some reason, blue has never been one of the common alternate colors in the Gothic fashion world. Sure, red and burgundy and purple and magenta, even grey and white, are fairly typical. I rarely see blue, and I am not sure why. I hope this post will help change that.
Today’s sweater, from New York and Company, features a large floral accent on the left shoulder and rhinestone buttons. The skirt is from Forever 21, and has lots of ruching down both sides. The belt is Forever 21. I think the blue tank top is also Forever 21, but I cut all of the tags out of my clothes because they make me itch. It’s difficult to remember where each piece came from.
I felt like wearing lots of bracelets today. Actually I feel like that every day, but today I succumbed to the urge.

I wasn’t thrilled with a single photo I took today. One little detail seemed to annoy me about each and every one. I nearly decided to forgo posting today because of it. But then I reminded myself that I am neither a professional photographer nor a professional model, and here I am attempting to do both at the same time. And I’m doing it in my spare room at home with relatively inexpensive equipment. Every day is a learning experience. So why should I let a little imperfection stop me from doing something I enjoy? I promise to do better tomorrow.
To the other fashion bloggers out there, do you ever get self-conscious about your photos? If so, how do you stay motivated to keep trying?
