These photo’s were taken at the train-station after we missed our train by five minutes. I swear this year has not been my year at all. Though I did have the company of my my friend – the lovely person taking my photo is the same person that designed and drew my header, Xara.

I’ve attempted to add in some colour (even though it’s red) just to get people wondering. Even when someone isn’t dressed particularly alternative but is in head to toe black they either think high fashion or Goth – adding a completely colourful item should get people wondering instead.
Abandoning my ripped stockings was another point but I decided to keep my hair uncovered since I didn’t want to be completely untrue (plus my partner was very adamant that I be truthful). If I do find a place to live (Oh man, I hope soon!) I don’t want them to be shocked when they come for an assessment to find a completely different person.
This is the dream cardigan that I’ve been looking for for years, unfortunately it’s in red rather than black. But at least I’m a step closer by knowing exactly what I want! I can imagine this one will be really great for layering with in winter; I can’t wait until the weather cools down.
Do you change your entire style for days that you have to dress ‘appropriately’? How do you dress down your regular style?
