Originally, my only goal with this outfit was to contrast the Victorian top (which was probably actually made in the 60's) with the leather shorts and combat boots. Adding the glittery cape definitely took it back to being more dainty and I felt very much like a little character, so I spent a couple hours in my apartment playing around in the light from the windows. This also might be the first time I've ever taken photos without eye makeup. I usually put some on because otherwise I look very young (and even with I am usually assumed to still be a teenager), but luckily this lip color sort of balances it out so I don't look like a total ghost baby.

The first time I wore this sweater out some kids mistook me as a classmate and made fun of me. A coach also yelled at me for being on the sports field and not running. This time I didn't get teased, but a small child did try and spit on my camera. I think that was just him being a rambunctious kid and not a side effect of wearing this sweater. I guess we'll find out the next time I wear it. I'll definitely avoid walking near any high school lockers, just in case some jocks decide to push me in. (That actually happened to me in elementary school, but reminiscing about my socially awkward history is a chat for another time.)
