Overdressed and Overeducated

This is an offshoot of my main blog (TheClockworkAesthete) dedicated completely to Outfits of the Day (OOTD) and various examples of other clothes I put on my body.

Me: 23. US size 18-24. 40F. 47/39/47. And not interested in changing a damn thing. Enjoy!


----------------------------------

Replaced the dead bulb in my room with a daylight bulb and now I have a BLINDING WHITE spot in my room to take obnoxious outfit pics again. So, sorry about that, if you were hoping to avoid it. 

"Aggressively Autumn" Outfit Details: 

Top: Tatyana (formerly Bettie Page), 3x

Skirt: Uniq Lo, size L

Sweater: Target, 2X

OTK socks: Uniq Lo Heattech OTKs (these are QUITE warm I will vouch for Heattech performance) 

Boot socks (worn mostly to prevent blisters): REI

Boots: Dr. Martens, size 9

Belt: I want to say F21, but could easily be Target, XL

Jewelry: Earrings are from Hot Topic years ago, bracelet was a gift and I have no idea where the brooch is from, it’s been in my jewelry case for ages. 

Thanks for sticking around, everyone who has hung on through my absence. I’m going to try to be better about this.

I’m off for a day of working at the museum showing people photos of hundred and fifty year old dead people.

My hair did not appreciate the ocean breeze.

Skirt: eShakti, sized for a 36 inch waist but came in a little closer to 38 inches.
Belt: Pinup Girl Clothing, size 2x
Shoes: Naturalizers, size 8, runs big in the heels
Flower: Tatyana’s

But my birthday is in two weeks and I thought I’d toss up my wishlist just for kicks. It’s a mix of stuff I do need (gluten free cookbooks because I’ve just been completely stalled out and confused in the kitchen since discovering I cannot eat wheat or wheat-byproduct anymore) and just…

theclockworkaesthete:

NYC (or other Tri-State) Art Peeps! Sunday is a new Dr. Sketchy’s event :D Come on out to see some gorgeous people in equally gorgeous costuming, get real drunk and draw!

Also we are giving away a PEACOCK SQUISHABLE! How cute is that?! Come win that thing, take home a giant snuggly peacock!

Spread the word!

That thing I do that has nothing to do with clothes. Almost the opposite.

Outfit for doing hair and makeup for Julie’s wedding. Bridesmaid’s dress photos to come later.
Outfit details:
Shirt: The Village thrift store. No size label.
Leggings: F21+ (1X)
Shoes: F21 (US8)
Belt: Target (XL)
Hair flowers: F21
Pearls: JC Penny or gifted

I am also wearing a Bettie Page bullet bra from Secrets in Lace which is my absolute favorite bra and I should have bought out all of the stock when they went on sale. It is a 34D

In a development that surprises probably no one but me, my parlormaid’s costume for Dr. Sketchy’s Night Flowers event (I’m event staff) is coming along lovely. I just need to make my hat and a petticoat and I’ll be all set! 

Corset is a little big.

Full photos to follow when I finish the whole thing.

Dress is by Recollections, Apron by Historical Emporium, watch necklace was given to me by Foxface

In other news, anyone have any good suggestions for what to do with my hair? I’m completely at a loss. 

All my old OOTD photos make me want to cry. I was so much prettier and more confident when I was so much more fat. I’m afraid I’ll never have that feeling again.

I’m so sorry I haven’t updated this blog more. It’s proving harder than I ever imagined to look at myself. 

Sorry, I’m not very photogenic to begin with and having a completely different face-shape to work with is throwing off my game.
