Since my next project is comprised of a series of garments, I won't be posting them until they're all together (since we know getting dressed up and taking photos is actually rather an amount of work). So here's a teaser to hold you over (two pieces done, woo!)...

1.) It's super comfy/not at all fitted but still looks cute.
2.) I don't give a damn what people think of me, so I'll sure as heck be wearing this ensemble this summer.
Sadly, I have not received my mary-janes yet, but I still wanted to play. These are my saloon boots, which I do wear frequently when the weather is better because I love them.
(And added pockets. They are purposely placed to the side rather than more centered because at work I lean against hip-height counters and keep things like my mp3 player in my pocket and rather not have it crushed/smashed against the counter top.)
When it's really warm this summer, I'll so be rocking this (and might have to make a couple more in various fabrics).
PS These are the pair of tights that earn me the most 'Are those tattoos?' despite the fact you can see the seam line where the printing of the pattern breaks on the side of the leg.
3. CaprisFor those warm yet not 'hot' summer days, this will go great with these 'hankerchief' print capris I have (in black and red), or with fun capris leggings!
Is it summer yet?!!
I so can't wait. I'm sick, Sick, SICK of wearing jeans (and long johns, and multiple pairs of socks and about five layers of shirts)... stupid winter. I want to wear my cute clothes again!
And some jewelry options...I didn't think of it for the first round of photos, but I have multiple options for Alice jewelry!
My beautiful shadow box locket made by my friend, supermutts...

Or my new necklace I got for Christmas from my aunt (who got it from an etsy shop)...
Paired with my 70s outfit is my pocket watch (an Christmas gift from my cousin several years ago), previously seen with numerous bohemian outfits and steampunk ones... And some dollar store sunglasses... (because if I pay more than $5 for a pair, they'll be lost or broken within a week. I have bad sunglasses kharma.)
