Propane and Butterscotch





Dress: Rock Steady
Shirt: Primark
Belt: F21
Tights: Target


Remember when I said I'd be a better student...? Yeah. Well, my first illustration is due Friday, and I'm way behind on it. I've worked on it a bit today, but it has a ways to go before I'd be comfortable putting it up for critique. Some of my fellow classmates can be brutal. :D
I think I've only worn this dress twice; once to a Rasputina concert over the summer and another when I went out with friends. My two biggest issues with it were the low-cut in front and the super-high waist, but the shirt and belt sort of fix both problems, and I think I'll be wearing it more.

Last night there was an insane thunderstorm (and a tornado warning), so I stayed inside and worked on a quick picture I'd wanted to do for a day or so:
(I really like feathers, curly red hair and freckles...nothing more to it, really.)

  4. Cute outfit! The birds are of course very cute. Love that sailor jerry style. And it's always nice to find another Rasputina lover. I've seen them 2 or 3 times now. Always so good!

  17. Ooo, I love the teeny little ruffles and birds on the shoulders of the dress! You should definitely wear it more often to give it some love. And the girl in your illustration? I like how she looks like she may be shy and annoyed at the same time for having been caught in her skivvies!

  21. The shoulders on that dress are lovely! One of my best friends has swallow tattoos in exactly the same place on her shoulders; you totally remind me of her! Your hair is such a good length, really pretty! Good luck with your illustrations!
