Where do I begin? I had been thinking about this outfit since I sketched it on Sunday.
I knew I wanted to wear my black, pleated full skirt, with my tweed, fitted jacket to give that real girly curve. The question was what color stockings I would wear? I could go for the purple--but I would have to go neutral on top--I thought grey or white but not matchy, matchy purple. I could do what was expected, black or dark brown stockings, but before high school I have been trying to be different, so why stop now?
So when I decided to do the oatmeal colored stockings, it made it easier to go with the fuchsia colored tee on top. The shearling tops on my boots? They are a DIY, and a real work in progress. At first, I was going to sew the shearling onto the tops of socks--and still may do so. But as it was, I just cut them off my slippers and tucked them in my boots.
Stay tuned for more prototypes on the shearling tops~
