Tom Waits for cold weather

Grim Bros + Concord clothing

I blame Ashia for this outfit, which has elements of clothing from Grim Bros. It's lovely how the freebie hunting people boldly go into awesome shops, leading the way for the rest of us to follow. I poked around the store and liked the look of the Victorian frocks, which are more suited for a flower girl and working woman than a fine lady. It's nice to pretend you're a violet-seller sometimes, Eliza Doolittle before her voice-over into a lady. At least before her makeover, she wasn't shy!

The pants and shirt are some of the new items from Concord Clothing. I like nicely-made polo shirts and pants *cough* despite turning them into Gothic-carnie wear. These new earrings are from Bliensen+Maitai, and the necklace is a playful beaded one that has a script that changes color and alphabet letters. I've put my daughter's name there... I've always pondered that getting a little heart tattoo with her name on it would be cute, but I'd probably have people wondering why I've got a random female name on my arm, especially the other moms at her daycare. Protective coloring is sometimes important in a conservative Southern town. Speaking of protective coloring, I'm in another Fleur skin today, the gorgeous Biba -- remember the sale! The Vivant line is on sale for a little while longer.

Anyway. My professor walked into the cafe and is sitting behind me, so I'd better start doing something that looks a bit more useful! Have lovely weeks. This one is already half-done, isn't it?
