OOTD: Holiday Spirit

Bow: Good Stuff Only | Striped Button-Up: Karen Scott (Thrifted) | Black Jumper: Thrifted | Orange Tights, Garter Belt: Target | Heels: Unknown

I felt so appropriately witchy in this outfit! I’ve lazily been a witch for Halloween a few times, but it’s so irresistible to just throw on my marvelous $2 pointed hat and some fancy black clothes with fun accessories!

This black jumper was a floor-length number when I bought it, but I chopped it inappropriately short and it’s become one of my favorite things. So comfy and perfect for layering! Speaking of thrifting, I hit a jackpot yesterday–6 lovely Karen Scott button-up shirts with fun collars, all sitting in a row on the new arrivals cart, all in the same size. I’m choosing to believe they’re all from the same little old lady and I basically inherited her entire wardrobe. ;) Very happily, I might mention! One of them has a mesh and pearl detailed collar and another has a lacey pink collar! Collar dreams! So happy that’s such a trend right now. I love them!

  • Hey, just found your blog through Elycia, and I’m really enjoying it. Your illustrations are lovely, especially the updated Big Book of Cats. I love this outfit, those orange stockings are freaking amazing, you look fantastic xo

    • Michelle

      Aww, well thank you, doll! I really appreciate it. :)

  • i love hemming vintage dresses! this one is awesome

    • Michelle

      lol I lazily just chopped this one, but accidentally went too short to actually hem it! Oops!

  • Alex

    damn girl stop being so cute or i might have to start fighting andrew and sammie for you

  • This outfit is so fun! And I love your hair!! I just found you from Elycia’s blog and couldn’t be happier. I was intrigued by the thought of two hundred cat girl illustrations…this whole cat thing is awesome :) So glad I found you!

  • This outfit is beyond adorable! I particularly love your orange stockings and your rocking beehive!

  • Your Halloween outfit is so cute!! Also love the little blonde streak in your hair. Hehe, I’m all about anything remotely rebellious or different when it comes to hair color!

    • Michelle

      Haha, me too! Ugh, I wish I could be more rebellious, but it’s honestly just too much work for a brunette. If I was a natural blonde, I would have rainbow hair for sure. :/

  • Cutest tights! I love the little bow popping out. I need to get up the guts to wear some of my tights with a little garter out and about. It’s intimidating! But you pulled it off so well.

      It is intimidating sometimes! I always feel like it adds an intentional ~naughtiness to my look, which sometimes feels fun, but I definitely have to be in the right mood to rock it.

  • Doh… and by bow I just mean the little garter straps.

  • love it, and love the bow, too! <3 <3

    • Michelle

      Haha, thank you, Amelia! I was so psyched when I saw your name! I adore my GSO bow and wear it constantly btw! I recently misplaced the poor thing, though, so I’ll probably be buying another soon! :)

  • Such a cute outfit and I like the way the tights tie off!
