Over the years the colors were gradually weeded out and replaced with dark shades of grey to what it is now. I think I need it. My most recent wardrobe-altering endeavor involved ridding myself of almost all thick platform shoes. One of my favorite pairs of shoes that I think you need:. Scarlett Suicide Age 25 Location New Hampshire Into: Japanese horror, asian culture, travelling, hollywood, modeling, expensive makeup Not Into: Flying, snakes, bombs Fav Bands: Flandex 50 cent Ludacris Velvet Acid Christ Benny Benassi Lords of Acid Infected Mushroom Chamillionare Amduscia Kanya West Fav Films: Gone with the Wind Old Boy Audition One Missed Call Battle Royale Kill Bill Secretary Scarface Tale of 2 Sisters Rei Suicide Age 21 Location Illinois Into: The Troposphere Not Into: The fluffy padding that comprises my couch Makes her happy: The fact that my boyfriend is the closest thing I have to a personal slave. I like to be able to combine all my clothes and complements. I used to wear heels everywhere and everyday but not only were something of them bloody painful they made me look less sexy because they were not easy to walk in.
I have always gravitated back to those colors. I have some very similar ones that I got ages ago. I hope you did understand what I was trying to say. Both my ultra conservative dressing parents wear those colours to death and it is my intent and purpose to never become as boring as them. But I do love wearing black still so my outfits sometime end up all black with the occasional color. I have a pair of buffalo platform shoes that turn my usual locomotive piled high teacup gate into the frankenstein stomp and I hate it.
I was a jeans and tshirt sorta girl, but as im settling in my early twenties im choosing clothes that are still black, but experiment with layering and different fabrics. Wear what you like, but I like it better the closer your soles are to the ground. I also had a realization similar to you about heel height about a month ago. My personal style revelation was that I hate navy blue and beige. I started wearing black when i was 14, and around 19 i got bored that everything in my wardrobe looked the same, so i let in a few hints of colour — and like you, it felt wrong. I like all this gypsy meets cyberpunk meets post-apoc solider and trying to make it work for me is the most fun. I gave in some years ago and started adding a lot of reds and grays and a pinch of green.
And that i really dont care what people think of my outfits. My 2nd reveltion was when I started bleaching my hair white-not blonde, White! In college I got into gender bending, having discovered Tilda Swinton, Victor Victoria, and a kind of androgynous para-militant aesthetic. I tend to my lack of colour with accessories now, such as coloured hair or nail polish. I wear black as a uniform, but I also possess a deep deep love for bright reds. However on most days i still put on black jeans and a black top, i only hope to accumulate a gold mine that exists in your wardrobe one day. I used to be a strictly Converse type of girl, and then I bought my first pair of Winklepickers and fell in love.
As a babybat I was more into colour alongside black, your usual purples and reds and blues. I basically live in boots or roman sandals, these days. Especially my heavy ass New Rocks…which are unfortunately no longer daily wear even though they did make my commute into a full-fledged workout. While I appreciated the ease in which I could put together my black clothes, they all faded to different shades of dark dark grey. Makes her sad: The day he demands emancipation and then the subsequent reparations. However, being vertically challenged cough I have embraced platform shoes and heels of numerous styles.
Since I have a somewhat atypical figure, this was a real revelation. So really, mostly black with hits of red and white and grey are the only things that work for me. Instead of people looking at me and seeing black, they see me for the strange fashion lover I am! Are they comfortable enough for daily wear? Adding bits here and there, and even incorporating blue jeans. Not Into: Bullys, liars, drama, sadness Fav Bands: Manic Street Preachers Bouncing Souls Jawbreaker Belle and Sebastian Against Me! I puffed up my hair on both sides of my head, wore big skirts and layered tank tops, invested in sock dreams and wore a kickass pair of boots every day. Although i may put some silver in it, its the happiest colour combo ive had. Then I went full-on Victoriana with it and was constantly in mourning gear.
They rarely are worn these days. I think this is from my punk rock days. I gave in too, and only occasionally let purple join in and play. I hate the way I walk in them. Come to think of it, the gothy look at clubs probably cemented the fit epiphany. Not to mention that my chiropractor admitted they do indeed look bad ass, but were more than likely at fault for my mysterious lower back pain. Most of my style icons are men, so I suppose it was inevitable.
It felt better and I like the little splash of color here and there. Horizonline, I actually like the visual distortion that comes with wearing high heels and platforms, but in the end it all comes down to grace. Expelled are the colorful closet invaders that had accumulated during my ill-advised experiment and the shelves are filled with shades of coal once again. From this, many years of horrible, cheap gothy clothing and bad make up ensued. Have you ever had a personal wardrobe revelation? And your boots are to die for!! However, as my shelves gradually filled up with splashes of olive, burgundy and blue, I began to feel… Wrong, somehow. Like all hare-brained experiments this was fun at first.
