Have you ever had a boyfriend who out dresses you?
I haven’t–I’ve often been the one to out-dress everyone around me and even once had a boyfriend who would make me change clothes if I went too crazy, which I often did!
One thing I love about my darling Neem is he is quirky as hell and I never know what he is going to put together.
We were getting ready for the wedding reception of an old friend from the goth scene here in Melbourne, and I had picked out this pretty black lace dress; nothing special. Neem came out in this purple shirt with black and white striped waistcoat, a tartan kilt, stripey socks, and a bowler hat.
On top of all that, he was annoyed he’d forgot to bring his bow-tie from his place!
My heart melted.
“Finally!” I thought, “I am with someone even more crazy than I am!”
I threw my dress aside and grabbed a bunch of things from the closet willy-nilly. It was coincidence it all came out gray and purple, and kind of matched him (I swear!) hahaha.
It’s sooo nice when you are with someone who not only accepts you for who you are, but encourages the things you enjoy doing that make you who you are!
If you’ve ever had issues with partners who didn’t share your taste in clothes, tell me your story. I’d love to hear it!
As 100% of this outfit is thrifted, there’s no point for me to write out the details.
Shopping at thrift shops is far more fun and better for the planet anyway, so I encourage you to shop second-hand, and let your imagination create something unique of your own!
2019 UPDATE: I stopped posting my outfits on this blog when I became obsessed with digital marketing and decided to start teaching it here, but I am still showing off my outfits on my personal Instagram account: @Christine_of_Hexotica ! 🙂
