I was gonna give a try at a second outfit video, but it was just so windy last Sunday! I could barely get anywhere with these photos so the video was a no-go. Nonetheless, I really love where my photos are going these days. I’m learning a lot about lighting from trial and error and I’m digging photos in direct sunlight.

I’m sooooooooooo into the oxblood trend. If you’re new to my blog, you may not know about my red/burgundy obsession that happened last year, but when I chose my first American Apparel package in December I stocked up on tons of red. Now, I’m able to wear it all again this Fall. This outfit had a completely different feel when I almost paired it with my flatform sandals. All of a sudden, I decided creepers and a choker were appropriate. I bought a few things from the Urban Decay sale, including this lipstick I’m wearing. It’s a super sheer black called Oil Slick. I think I’m going to start wearing it every day. I have never loved any lipstick this much before!

That deep burgundy color is my favorite this Fall! I love the way it looks against the leopard print! So lovely!

Thanks, Jen! Leopard is such a great, surprising neutral and goes with every color, haha.

That skirt is seriously calling my name for my Halloween costume. It’s like perfect but then I’d still need the top part. Wah. You look really cool, creepers are ALWAYS a safe bet.

I’m in loooove with this skirt. I think there are a few shape varieties, too, so look into those as well! And I’m sure American Apparel has a top that’s perfect, too…they have everything! Haha. Thank you very much! :)
