R&B Week Outfit post (And other stuff)



Happy Red and Black week, readers! I hope you're enjoying yours. I'm absolutely loving reading everyone's posts. Today, I'm going to be keeping it nice and simple with an outfit post, but there's a special announcement and link at the end!


I'm wearing white eye shadow, black liner and mascara, and red lipstick with cranberry liner. I really need to re-dye my hair, it's a nice brown to black ombre at the moment...but unintentionally. Oops.


And, today's outfit:

Underskirt: Fanplusfriend
Blouse: Thrifted
Overskirt: Victorian Trading Co.
Necklace: Alchemy Gothic
Shoes: Torrid


I love this red skirt, I wear it all the time, but with the over skirt it's pretty fancy. But pssst. it's not really an over skirt. It's a lace shawl for a lamp. But it's so pretty!


These are the shoes I'm wearing. I was about to throw them out, but I decided I liked them for certain outfits, this one included. 


The necklace is one of my favorites. In fact if I'm wearing red, I'm probably wearing this necklace. It was a gift from my mother (who has excellent tastes, in my opinion.)


Okay, so that's it for the outfit. Now for something sillier (but still Black and Red!). I went to a concert by one of my two favorite bands, The Mountain Goats, on Monday night. It was great, I cried when everyone sang No Children in unison. And I bought a sticker. 


I also bought a poster because it is so positively metal I just had to:


Badass, right?

But guess what else I've been up to? I've been making a text adventure game, and I just released it! It's called Exhibit Yourself, and in it you must escape from a museum, using all the objects at your disposal to solve puzzles and search for an exit. I think it's good, but I'd love for everyone else to try it out. (And it's FREE!) You can find it here online, and you can find a list of possible triggers for the game on my production blog here.


This is the banner. It's also got Red & Black on it. I'm on a roll, aren't I?

  1. Nice outfit. I tried the game, but I never played that kind of game, so I could not understand what exactly I must write. It gave me " I don't understand the command" and I didn't understand what it wants for me :D

    1. Hi! The game uses really simple commands, "examine", "use", "Take", "drop" and "use ________ on ________" are the basic ones. :)

  2. I was looking at your overskirt and when you mentioned it came from Victorian Trading Company, I thought I recognized it as the lamp cover. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT idea to use it the way you have. Genius. Seriously, I never would have thought of that.

    I'm going to go try your game, but I'm not very good at that sort of thing. However, escaping from a museum sounds like great fun! :o)

    1. Ahh, thank you! I've been thinking it over in my head for a while but was put off by the fringe, but today I figured, what the hell. :) Thank you for trying!

  4. That skirt is awesome! Way to be creative. :) I know about the black hair maintenance. My hair is lighter than yours, so it looks reeeeally bad when I get behind, which is fortunately almost never.

  6. I immediately fell in love with your simple, elegant makeup and that fabulous pendant, then I scrolled down and saw what is just about the most amazing skirt ever. Wow!!! I never would have guessed it was for a lamp. So pretty, and such a great idea!

    Thanks for joining in on the Red & Black event!

  8. I think your idea of using the lampcover as a skirt is genious! It's a lovely combination of layeres :)
    It was a good descision not to throw those shoes, they are so pretty.

  9. Oh man, I'm so sad! I spent like three hours playing your game and had just finished collecting the blue and yellow die's and then "Sorry, your session has expired and the game has finished. Press your browser's Refresh button to start again." I am crushed.

    But lovely game none-the-less. And lovely outfit!

    1. Oh no! I'm sorry about that. :/ I wonder what happened. Saving the game should in theory solve that problem, but I could understand you not wanting to go through it again.
      Thank you!
