Music: Cuts You Up

 Peter Murphy - Cuts You Up
(This was a really difficult post by virtue of me not being able to decide which Bauhaus or Peter Murphy song I love most. Torture! Like deciding between beloved, undead, incorporeal children...)

Style: Fifties Gothic

I'm having so much fun dressing for work this spring! I can be just as achromatic as I please; all the collections coming out have lots of black and white.

Altered Target blouse, (unknown origin) scarf, thrifted Talbot's skirt, Merona knee-highs and shoes.

Claire's headband and magnetic earring worn as helix, vintage sterling thorny-rose earrings.

Style: A Porcelain Doll

Several people at work- customers and coworkers alike- have described me so, which pleases me immensely. I deliberately attempt to look so- when someone gets it, it's wonderful! Angel-choirs-harmonizing-in-my-head wonderful.

Walmart blazer, Talbot's lace tank, skirt, and necklace, Claire's studded cuffs and Merona shoes.

Monthly Theme: Vintage

I found this vintage silk blouse in an antique shop last fall... I wore it several times over the winter, but never put any photos of it my blog- so April's Monthly Theme is perfect!
I found it half-hidden, hung in the back of a little cubbyhole. What first attracted me was the sleeves; dramatic, draped affairs that moved like wings when I walked and immediately reminded me of bats. The high neckline has a wide embroidered insert over sheer fabric, and the blouse buttons to the left side, with an additional zipper up the back.
The tag on the inside had been almost completely removed, but due to the embroidery style for the size (6) and shoulder pads, I believe it's from the 80's.
Needless to say I think it's just fabulous, and it was only $20!
