Fashion Drone

I would like to start by apologizing for my laziness and and lack of posting. I have been in a bit of a rut for the past month, as some pictures will reveal the MASSIVE amounts of Rockstars and sickly eyes. But I'm back.
A fashion drone is a person who wears all black (but not in a Hot Topic goth, or real goth sort of way- I would say in a progressive way) and whose looks could kill. They live at Oak. As much as I can't stand them, I have a need to be one sometimes. Something about wearing all black in a minimal interesting way just tempts me too much. I bought this ultra ridiculous Complex Geometries hood dress. It's really a quite fantastic design in that it is all one seam. When I went back to Amarillo my friends told me I looked like a dark Virgin Mary nun, and for me the hood is an interesting addition to the apathetic/ being mysterious fashion world. I know I blab on and on about coverings of the face, but I think mystery does magical things to the aura of an outfit.
I also went to the IF boutique's basement sale (I will forever torture myself about an un-purchased $200 AMAZING Comme Des Garcons dress) and I bought this Ivan Grundel cardigan. The ruffles and asymmetry do remind me of CDG, though.
A final addition to my new fashion drone outfit is this Diana Orving jacket. The sleeves aren't exactly as they were... seeing as I caught on fire at a party and I had to re-sew one sleeve. But the volume of the sleeves is too good to be true. And it's suppppppppper comfortable (and apparently very flammable). AND it resembles fat rolls. Who could ask for more?
