Fashion Friday :: the apocalypse of my heart.

21 Apr

Namely, Dollhouse‘ Epitaphs coda. Sorry I haven’t been posting much. I haven’t really had much to talk about, and also we were rewatching Dollhouse and feeling things. (It’s the first time we’ve ever done together, so most of those things were summed up with the word ‘gay,’ but hey.) It also reminded me of something, and that is… for all that show’s flaws, it still has a lot of my emotional real estate.

epitaphs

So here. Some apocalypse aesthetic pieces, all from ModCloth ’cause that’s how I do, not in any one cohesive outfit but as kind of a starter pack.

all-in

relaxed

thoroughly

library

a-cozy

recline

Things often fit loosely in the apocalypse. Also there tends to be a lack of non-earthy color. All In Favor Top; Relaxed for a Fact Sweater; Thoroughly Thermal Hoodie; Library, Secondary, Tertiary Cardigan; A Cozy Touch Sweater; Recline the Invitation Hoodie.

layers

haute

what-dreams

Layering, also, is a motif. Layers Gonna Play Jacket; Haute Horizon Vest; What Dreams are Draped Of Jacket.

lookout

field

Dresses and skirts, when you have them, tend longer and utilitarian, unless they’re a nostalgic salvage. Lookout Luncheon Maxi Dress; Field Notable Midi Skirt.

easy

utility

fused

Pants are cargo. Pretty much without fail. Easy Strider Pants; Utility Devotee Pants; Fused With Utility Pants.

insider

meteor

tie

Do you wear shoes that aren’t boots in the apocalypse? No, you don’t. Insider Info Boot; Meteor Shower Search Boot; Tie, Tie Again Block Heel Boot.

Fashion Friday :: save her.

7 Apr

iron-fist-colleen-wing-clip

Save Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) from the disaster subfranchise she has been born into. We watched the first episode of Iron Fist last weekend while significantly hamsters and even that did not make it bearable. But Colleen is a beautiful murderprincess probably and she needs to be protected at all costs.

rustic

Nice, basic, not too fussy. Rustic Radiance Top, ModCloth.

moto-high

This is a little more, like, biker pinup than usual, but oh well. It suits and it is nigh impossible to find white or silver skirts that aren’t bridal. Moto High Waist Metallic Denim Miniskirt, Topshop at Nordstrom.

across

With these underneath for optimal ass-kicking, though she probably rips the lace off. Across Town Shorts in White, ModCloth.

transcendent

And flats for the same reason. Transcendent Splendor Flats, ModCloth.

Fashion Friday :: important detective princess.

31 Mar

So here’s the thing about Misty Knight (Simone Missick). Not only does she kick ass in a beating-dudes-up way, she kicks ass with her brain in a particular way that in television is usually attributed to white men, not black women. Also in the comics she has a gold arm, which is pretty cool. (The above picture shows the actress, not in character, side by side with an image from the comics, because like last week I need to pull that up for reference for y’all.)

antiqu

Hear me out: there were no red blazers I liked for mimicing Netflix!Misty’s actual style, but this sweater has red trim so it matches the pants and it’s gold like her robot arm. Antique Market Maven Sweater, ModCloth.

jive

Because then she can kick asses. Jive Got a Feeling Pants in Red, ModCloth.

toe-tap

And here we have flat shoes for the same purpose. Toe-Tap Velvet Flat in Rouge, ModCloth.

giddy

There are not any hoop earrings on the website, so have these instead. Giddy for Geometry Earrings, ModCloth.

a-cuff

And for some extra gold for that arm. A Cuff Above the Rest Bracelet, ModCloth.

Fashion Friday :: beloved not-yet-hero of my heart.

24 Mar

trishhellcat-1280jpg-c73c01_1280w

Well, not-yet-superhero. Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) is every bit a hero and sidenote: I am also enamored of comics!Hellcat, hence the inspiration for this outfit.

hepcat

It was sort of meant to be. Hepcat Soda Fountain A-Line Dress in Ginger, ModCloth.

bow

And replace that fabric belt with this for some extra punch. Bow, Baby! Belt in Black, ModCloth.

animated

These are the least practical shoes ever but just assume she has flats in her purse for when the going gets tough because they’re beautiful. Animated Attitude Velvet T-Strap Heel in Noir, ModCloth.

cat-ears

And luckily, cat ear headbands are actually a thing right now, so you can find cute ones that don’t look like they came from the party store (necessarily). Cat ears headband, KittyMeStore at Etsy.

Fashion Friday :: YARA QUEEN

20 Jan

yara-greyjoy-will-face-opposition-to-her

On this day of great upset, let us look instead to a beautiful vengeful queer queen surrounded by and loving on other beautiful vengeful queer queens for guidance and inspiration. Yara (Gemma Whelan) forever.

(I like that picture for the aesthetic value. Most Iron Islands stuff is so drab. That’s practically Goth.)

versatile

Keeping with the Goth thing, then, I am using black because Yara… has always been wearing the same shit and blue and brown only go so far. Also, look at this it is so very her. Versatile Vixen Cape, ModCloth.

stick20it

But of course. She’s one of us now. Stick it to the Flannel Top in Blue, ModCloth.

garment

Boyfriend jeans? More like queer girlfriend jeans. Garment District Gallivant Jeans, ModCloth.

quest

Shrug. Sure. Quest Foot Forward Boot in Licorice, ModCloth.
