Film nor is one of the few genres that manages to hold my attention, generally I tend to fall asleep if a film is on or I end up surfing the Internet. I think that it also influences some of my outfit choices.
Today I decided to channel my inner femme fatale but with a nautical twist. I was compelled to wear a burgundy skirt like one of the doomed men that fall for the beautiful but evil sirens.
In my case I had a choice between two skirts, I faced the inner conflict head on but took pictures to document my journey for you. Sorry for the flowery language today but I always get the urge to write my personal noir dialogue!
I bought the first skirt two years ago from The Call of Life Store on AliExpress for £6.80, it’s being sold by Freestyle Store for £10.00 as the previous seller no longer stocks it.
I really like the split and false pockets, it’s well made, very feminine and has a sultry vibe. This skirt is only available in one size it’s very stretchy but I don’t think it will fit anyone larger than a UK size 12. The reason I say this is because it fitted me when my bottom was substantially larger but I’m currently a UK 8-10.
The second option made me ponder why I’d messed with the first, I don’t think it is as obviously revealing as the first one but it isn’t without it’s charms. This skirt is from one of my coords, it’s low waisted so shows a hint of stomach. The wool is thinner than the first one. The reason I flirted with this one was because I tied the waist of my cardigan and I didn’t want to overcomplicate the look.
I bought the coord from the Missufe Franchised Store for £9.74 but the price is now £10.58. I like the versatility of coords so buy loads of them.
The reason for my conundrum was a beautiful but complicated cardigan, I tied it in knots but it made pay, it made me choose. I bought the cardigan from Hexin’s Store for £5.21, it’s now being sold by Shenghao Store for £10.21.
I love this cardigan so much that I have two of them, I corrupted the one that I’m wearing by cutting it slightly so that I could tie it up in knots but have the original version for when I’m feeling straight laced.
In the end I chose to leave the split because I felt too exposed, messing with a top like the one I had meant that I had to play it safe especially with it being winter.
I decided to wear bare legs and faux snakeskin boots that I bought from from Public Desire for £10.00, they’re no longer on stock but you can ask for an availability update.
Lastly I wore a black and white faux fur coat to match my favourite genre. It’s currently being sold for £41.47 by Yiyi Apparel.
