echoes of silence


Cardigan - Gifted
Belt - Thrifted 
Highwaisted Black Skirt - H&M 
Floral tights - Forever 21
Scarf - Hand-me-down

Shoes - Spring

I actually love these shoes. Sadly, they suffer from great neglect because of the heel height. Sometimes being tall has it's advantages, but as a girl, I really just want to be able to pull off some heels without having to feel like a giraffe. 

This was the simpler base I had for my outfit. I pretty much styled everything around the scarf and I feel like it definitely makes the outfit, but this base is good on it's own too. Clearly not something I would wear to school, but it would be nice for an evening date or girls day out. I think the cardigan keeps it from being borderline promiscuous and brings it over to the cute side. Mhm... girls are pretty sneaky, aren't they. One day I'll do a post about how Juxtaposition solves everything.

I had two inspirations for this outfit. The first one was just the scarf, because I am currently infatuated with it, and the second was the album cover for The Weeknd's 'Echoes of Silence'. 

 Is it strange that I was inspired by an album cover? Because when The Weeknd released 'Echoes of Silence' I almost forgot about the music because I was so entranced by the cover. 

Bright vivid bloody red, you can see the hints of it on her lips. It's a suggested beauty. 

I actually love all of The Weeknd's album covers. They have the same effect as his music, I can't really explain it… it's almost this strange nostalgia for a moment you never lived. They make me want to put something together for all of his album covers. 

Obviously I'm just embarrassing myself because I wouldn't be able to do those covers justice, but they're still amazing inspiration nevertheless. 

I wish I could've edited the pictures to match the style of the cover a bit more but I really wanted to get this post up (excuses, excuses). Oh well, there will be better outfits. 

"Wear your best outfit tomorrow and make a better one tomorrow. "


  1. Maybe it was a large coincidence but I was listening to The Weeknd right before reading this post hahaha. I really like how you paired this together =) I have crochet lace stockings but I always never know how to accessorize it together, thanks for the inspiration! :D

    Check out this blog if you haven't yet(, her inspirations are from artworks too so this is great like yours! :D

    1. Hehe thanks so much!

      That's a coincidence, she's actually one of my favorite bloggers! :) I love her outfits and all the illustrations she draws to go along with them. It inspires me to draw all my outfits too but I don't think I can pull it off like her, haha.

  2. Love your blog!
