The Black Dark walk to the Wild side

Saturday, July 7, 2012

Wearing: Nasty Gal Dita Bustier; D&L Maxi Skirt; Boohoo cuff; Diva Necklace; Topshop Sandals; Illamasqua Box Lipstick

I've come across a feeling of anger lately. I feel angry because I feel trapped and helpless in my own world.

...I like my work but I hate that I haven't had a weekend night off in 6 weeks.
I like my blog but I hate that the direction is going the wrong way.
I like my own style but I hate that I feel judged by the blogging world sometimes.
I like Lana Del Rey but I hate that I feel wholly connected to the lyrics of "Born to Die".
I like my friends and friendships but I hate how I am let down when I need it most sometimes.

I've decided to go to a style I love - dark, feminine, free and mysterious to reflect how I feel. I haven't worn something like this in a long time. I wish I could control how I feel about my life right now the same way I control the way I dress... I wish I had the confidence to defy my feelings at the moment but.. social conventions and my own personality traps me.

  15. i love this look it is so dramatic and i like that you used your emotions to channel it! sometimes it is easy to get bogged down with things i know, but the great thing is you always have options and good things going on that you can look to :D

  19. I love this outfit, especially the bustier! I try not to let what others think about me bother me. If I want to post a certain thing on my blog, or dress a certain way, I do it because I want to, and therefore I don't care about what kind of criticism I might get. It's always good to go with your gut and do what you want sometimes!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting!

  25. As women we must own our feelings and NOT ignore them. There is nothing wrong with expressing your feelings, freeing yourself of the weight they hold and moving forward. Breathe deeply and know that this too shall pass love!
