Premonition

Well, this was just that kind of day, a day where I ended up pissed off and frustrated and really glad that I at least had the foresight to rock my leather pants at work. It's possible that it was a premonition, but so many of my workdays suck lately that a crummy day is really not very difficult to predict. At any rate, wearing a sassy outfit is always a nice way to combat a bad day, and this was no exception.

When I first got these pants I thought they were a little too tight to wear at the office, but the super-soft leather stretched to a very comfortable fit after just a couple of wears, and now I feel quite confident that they're work-appropriate. The continued rain was also a great reason to waterproof my legs.

Tunic: All Saints
Hoodie: local import store
Belt: thrifted
Pants: Firetrap
Boots: Modern Vintage

In other news, the Etsy shop has been filling up with new items in preparation for our ad in the June/July issue of Bust Magazine, which should be hitting the newsstands now. I'm really excited to be advertising in Bust, for one thing because it's great exposure for the shop, and for another because I think it's an awesome magazine and I'm happy to be a part of it. Bust is really supportive of small businesses like ours, and their very reasonable advertising rates reflect that.

On a related note, be sure to check out the gorgeous photos of our Bolero Harness, modeled and shot by the beautiful Morgana of Iberian Black Arts Photography. Click on Morgana to see the rest of her photo shoot!

Yay! I got it and I saw it! I was wondering if this is the first time you've advertised in BUST. I'm so happy to see you in there! Most excellent.

I love the b/w picture for Etsy. You remind me of a cross between Catherine O'Hara and Ann Magnuson. Please take that as a compliment as I think both are GREAT! I love your blog and please include more pics of Georgie.

I'm sorry to read about the crappy days at work! The leather pants and the Bust Ad are awesome, though!

Congratulations on the ad! That's fantastic.

I love how this look has such great texture and details - the mottled hoodie and the lace-up boots and the dark trousers. I hope it helped to combat the bad day!
