OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: Dressing Through The Blues

It's been one of those weeks, y'know?

So, it's funny to talk about clothes and outfits this week since I spent the first half swaddled in pyjamas and bed linens. I was not having a good time Sunday through Wednesday, let me tell you, and it had a negative effect on my general approach to dressing. 

I'm feeling a lot better now though, the sun is shining and it looks like next week is going to be HOT, actual summer-style HOT, so maybe I'll finally get to the beach before the summer ends. Wouldn't that be nice?

In terms of what I wore when I finally managed to crawl out of my slump, I was definitely carrying a bit of moody baggage -- hence the all-black attire. Once I was fully dressed I felt a lot like the boys The Shangri-Las sing about, which is a thumbs up in my book. Yeah, I'm giving myself a thumbs up.

Bad news bear.

On the flipside, you all went gaga for Meowzeltov Cocktail's ensemble last week, and rightfully so. This look also had a retro vibe but the happiest bursts of colour that are putting a smile on my face -- much needed after this craptastic week. So thank you, Meowzeltov, for brightening up the comment section with that fabulous skirt!

How lovely.

Now it's your turn. What did you wear this week? And how do you dress when you're bummed out? Do you force yourself to be a shining ray of light or do you go the cranky goth route? Let's talk clothes.
