We're finally getting some snow! By now it's really coming down, I hope we get a lot- I love snowstorms! This kind of outfit is ideal for days spent hanging around the house. I found this tent dress in New York during my travel season, I hacked off about 6 inches to make it less like a maternity-esque, I like how fluffy it is. The shoes I'm wearing were handed down to me by a friend from school a few years ago, I love how theatrical they are, they remind me of Frankenstein. There are a lot of imitation Creepers out there with lighter soles, but these are the real deal and they're actually really heavy! I wish the texture of my tights showed up better here, you can kind of see it in the first image. I layered a pair of crochet tights over a pair of plain black stockings.
Still not sure about New Years. I have a couple of Rodarte dresses that I would really like to wear to something, but I think the snow might make traveling to a party difficult.
P.S. I just realized that few people know what Creepers are, whoops! They actually have a really interesting history and are sometimes referred to as "Brother Creepers".
From the Wiki-Page:
"They found their beginnings in the years following the WWII: Soldiers based in the deserts in North Africa wore suede boots with hardwearing crepe soles because of the climate and environment. Having left the army, many of these ex-soldiers found their way to the disreputable nightspots of London (Kings Cross and Soho) wearing the same crepe soled shoes. Those became known as Brothel Creepers...In the late 1950s, these shoes were taken up by the Teddy Boys."
