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.
