Vampire

Outfit Details:
Skirt-Forever 21
Top-H&M
Feather Hair Clip-c/o ECHOING WATERS
Boots-Joe Fresh
Leggings-c/o OASAP
Necklace- Macy's


I was walking to class when a group of Kindergarten or 1st graders came jumping past, all in a line. Books in hand, I didn't pay much attention them, other than trying not to trample them. But then, one little boy screamed, "Look, it's a vampire!" I immediately knew that he was talking about me. Surprisingly, I wasn't offended. Instead, I took it as a compliment. I must have stood out for that little boy to look up from jumping around and say something about me! I smiled at him, of course. Not just to be nice but also to prove to him that I don't, actually, have fangs. :)

Also--congrats to ANNA, the winner of the Quiksilver Lulu's Scarf Giveaway! I'll be emailing you shortly. Thanks to everyone who entered and stay tuned for some AWESOME giveaways in the near future!


p.s. This gorgeous feather clip was hand made by my friend LAUREN. She makes all sorts of cool necklaces/headbands/feather clips that are totally awesome if you're going for a hip, bohemian vibe. I add mine to an outfit when I want to add something interesting and unexpected...and every time I've worn it, I've gotten compliments ! Make sure to check out her shop, ECHOING WATERS!

  1. Yay! You put up the photos of the skirt. The color combo is definitely darker than usual and it does have a "vampy" look, but I like it! Something new!

  2. Love that the little kid called you a vampire! I would've been flattered as well I love the dark look of this outfit!

  3. Haha, way to smile at him. The blood red skirt is just too gorgeous for him not to have noticed it, that's all ;)
    I LOVE this high-low trend going on! it's so pretty and dramatic <3
    Also, I love your friend's accessories! I'm thinking about ordering one of her earrings later on.
