OOTD :: of black and yellow and feeling vintage




This is the penultimate day to Halloween, and I’m still waffling on whether or not I shall be costuming it up for work. Usually, I go all out, if only because the holiday allows me to cosplay with impunity. But I’m feeling decidedly lukewarm about festivities in general this year, and since we’re not doing a Spirit Week to lead up to the big day like we usually do, I think I’m passing on dressing up.

While I debate, here’s my Thursday marigold outfit. I really love this dress because it’s got a vintage flair without being vintage itself. Not that there’s anything wrong with truly vintage clothing, but I find my self-esteem drops significantly when I try on clothing from previous decades. They were much smaller back in the day, you see, and my current size 10-12 self finds it difficult to squeeze into fab dresses from the forties and fifties.

Anyhow, I’m really glad I’ve gotten over my phobia about looking like a bumblebee when pairing black and yellow because this ensemble would not have come together otherwise. I also think the gold adds to the retro flavor, as well as being theme compliant.

I love it when a plan comes together.
