A couple of outfits from my shadow persona, the one with darker, tough/edgy elements. Although someone mentioned in a previous thread that they think my "shadow" style persona is fast becoming my primary style persona! These two outfits shared the same Helmut Lang-ish black zipper top (actually it's from Target!), I just switched out the bottoms and shoes and bracelets. The skirt outfit reminds me a bit of Goth, with the Victorian-ish grey and black lace print skirt, and the plaid pants remind me of punk. I wore these both to work...it may be pushing the envelope of work appropriateness a bit, but I'm trying to do a more grown-up version of Goth/punk. Someone at work said "You look so fall-like today!" It's because it's chilly and foggy in the mornings at my house so I feel like dressing in long-sleeve tops because I'm cold. And I'm on Team Wear so I'm trying to wear all of my new NAS purchases. But then when I get to work it's hot and sunny, so my outfit looks a little out of place. I know black is more associated with winter, but hey if you can wear white in winter, why not black in summer? I did at least push up the sleeves.
Is it time for me to start thinking about a new style moniker? Demure bombshell doesn't quite describe the new direction I've been exploring lately. And do you think I have dual style personas? Which one is primary? I feel like I have a very ladylike Kate Spade side with the florals, bright colors, prints, etc. but then also a darker tougher side with the monochrome black and grey, studs, zippers, leather, silver/gunmetal cuffs, etc. It's like I turn into a vampire at night, LOL! Would love to hear what you think of my style persona(s).
Thanks for looking and commenting!
