OOTD :: of medieval styling and finally getting it together


Lucky you – it’s freebie month on T3. So if our prompts from previous linkups had you stymied, now is your chance to show us a supercool ensemble inspired by anything you’ve read. Hope to see you this Thursday!

For me, I’m still working through Anne’s 52 Pick-me-up challenges, and this week, it’s Medieval. And here’s the thing: old me would’ve immediately jumped onto eBay and found cosplay items. Old me would’ve plunked down considerable ducats for something like these. Old me would’ve sunk my budget on one week’s worth of novelty clothing.

Welcome to new me! New me Googled and Pinterested for medieval inspired outfits, found out what elements were incorporated, then shopped her closet to create this week’s offerings. Today, I’m focusing on velvet and lace.




By mixing textures together, I’m playing with the concept of medieval opulence. I even threw in a pair of shiny pumps for even more excess. Also, there’s something visually medieval in layering short sleeves over long – kinda like mimicking armor. I plan to do more of that silhouette in the coming days, so watch out for it.

It may not be authentic, but it’s interpretative.

And it’s free.
