get it, the thread icon is a coin because clothes are expensive

Hi. I have not, traditionally, been a very fashion-focused individual. This was not a symptom of disinterest so much as lacking a space in which to explore it. But then I moved away from my parents and got on estradiol and now I spend more money on clothing and makeup than I do videogames and I don't know who I am anymore.

But at least whoever I am is someone stylish.

There's probably some others here interested in this subject, I imagine? I haven't been around this community very long and my initial impression is that I think this is primarily a forum for talking about weather and what we're currently eating, which is cool, I like that, it's good, but maybe there's some room for this as well. Anyone get any cute outfits recently? Exploring or interested in exploring any new fashion avenues lately? Have any specific places you like to buy your clothing at?

My sense of style is probably pretty obvious; Rambly here has called me 'goth queen' on the days on which I'm most dressed up. Black eyeliner, black clothing, black lipstick -- it's only within the last year or two that I've really been able to explore this style that I've loved since I was, what, 12? Incidentally, two downsides to the whole goth thing they don't tell you about: 1- our white haired cat ruins all of my outfits just by her looking at them, and 2- it is borderline impossible to discern any of my articles of clothing apart when picking them from the piles. But it's all worth it!

Recently, I've been slowly adding red as an accent color, and it's working out very well. I'll kick the thread off with my recent outfit:


Got these arm warmers from Amazon. Real cheap, mostly black with just a bit of red standing out. This is like my fourth pair of arm warmers or something. I, uh... I more or less just don't not wear arm warmers anymore.


Choker! Looks cute, fits my neck perfectly, was real cheap on Amazon. Speaking of which, this is the first result if you search 'vampire choker' on there, which was the next best thing after 'demon choker' failed to result in anything interesting.


This is my favorite shirt, at the moment. It was like $5 at my local thrift store and I felt like the luckiest trans girl in the world when I found it. All black, frilled shoulders, lace flower design around the neck. Wonderful.


My most recent acquisition, and quite possibly my favorite on this list. This one was from eBay; the seller was named vampofvintage and the brand on the skirt itself is called Queen of Darkness, so you know this one is a winner. I love the asymmetrical belt pieces which serve no practical function whatsoever and are purely decorative. Easily the most pricey item here, but still fairly cheap; $20 or so.

And, of course, here I am, in the fully assembled outfit.


sorry for the crummy bathroom mirror selfie, I'm not gonna name names BUT SOMEONE WHO IS MY GIRLFRIEND DIDN'T FEEL LIKE TAKING PICTURES OF ME FOR THIS THREAD

I'm incredibly happy with this outfit! So glad it all came together like this. I don't know how to end this opening post now so please reply and talk about clothes thank you bye

I really like frilly skirts, they are super adorable! I have sadly not been able to find many of those to get for myself, heh.

I'm not at all into fashion though, I just want cloths I find cute and/or practical. ~w~

I was *starting* to get into some retro/rockabilly type things back before I got pregnant, but fashion has now fallen into a hole.

I've been wearing the same set of black maternity leggings for well over a year now. I hate them. One day I will burn them.

oh! i have an oldish drawing i did of my go-to outfits for each season:



i only touch about one-quarter of my actual wardrobe because ive got so many clothes which i want to save for outings. lately ive just been kind of hermit-mode and not really wanting to worry about my appearance much. ive mostly been staying around the house and wearing comfy leggings and sweatshirts but im really looking forward to spring so i can start wearing flowy dresses again.

i wear a lot of black, you might be surprised to know i used to wear super colourful clothing ^u^; i used to have this yellow dress that i loooved but it fell apart. i have a lot of meso-american patterned clothes from when i lived in arizona, i really soaked up that whole culture. the most interesting piece i own is probably my peacock feather printed blazer, which was a hand-me-down from my grandmother. my most recent additions include a lacy wine blouse, a black pencil skirt, a pair of black suede pump boots, and a whooole lot of thrift sweaters haha.

i really like that whole look youve got going on dashie, particularly the arm warmers. i used to wear those and theyre a lot of fun!

holy fuck you're rocking that outfit

I generally just wear a tee and jeans. (And a lot of them black, most of them music-related)

I'm generic as hell and comfortable with it I guess

I wear either a short sleeve or long sleeve shirt and jeans year-round, regardless of the weather. I know a lot of people wear shorts, but I don't because of yellow jackets, wasps, hornets and mosquitoes being very common during the warmer months here.

Me being a generic person, confirmed.

Yeah, I could never get into jeans. I think I had some bad experiences will ill-fitting jeans as a child and never really got past that. I'm open to giving them another try sometime, but I'd have to come across a pair which really speak to me (and in my size) and this has thus far failed to materialize into a real life situation for me.

Ideally, my legs are covered with leggings under skirts.

Thank you! Arm warmers have become one of my favorite accessories. Going back to what someone else said about clothing practicality, I've really swung the other direction in recent years. I've grown a very serious love for accessories that serve no real purpose and are purely for fashion.

I also dig those socks. I probably couldn't incorporate those specific designs into my wardrobe but I love them anyway. Socks are awesome. More patterned socks!

Because my husband stole all my black socks (despite the huge size difference!!) I have started just having bright colourful patterned socks. I have Sailor Moon socks, I have flowery socks, I have argyle socks, I have spotty socks, I have Memphis design socks (although those have holes in them, should retire 'em). Patterned socks are the best socks.

All those are very cute. You look good in them! I mean, I couldn't personally wear any of it because they have colors other than black, but, you know.

No picture of me wearing it, but this tank top arrived a few days ago. It was a bit of a risk -- traditionally, I don't wear tops with designs on them or tank tops -- but it's paid off, because it's immediately become a favorite. I look better in it than expected, and so it's expanded my clothing interest to include such items.

Not clothing, but I'd like to augment my style with a few piercings later this year. Nose, lips -- ears, at the very least. Maybe a tattoo as well; not that I have any ideas for tattoo designs. We live across the street from a tattoo and piercings place, and it's becoming increasingly tempting to walk in and get something done.

I am really boring, because I have basically one look, ever:

• a generic t-shirt, either solid black or one of the Undertale delta-rune designs from Fangamer
• black pants
• crappy old shoes from years ago

I deviate from this basically never, unless I'm at home where it's usually a crappier worn-out t-shirt and shorts.

I have just never really put much thought into "fashion"

And I'm a real life anime villain, so I guess that checks out.

Nothing wrong with wearing just comfortable, practical stuff. I used to be very basic with my clothing, though I suppose there were unique circumstances there. Never T-shirts for me, however -- very much not a T-shirt person. I own exactly one right now, and it's a special exception; it's the only one I've worn in years.

The only truly important aspect of style of clothing is to make oneself happy. In my case, that which brings me happiness is self-expression through appearance.

And to bring this full circle, that self-expression is Anime Demon Queen.

Lunaria: That butterfly wing skirt is cute, I like it.

I mean, maybe not far from the truth, though I wish I could find the in-game description behind the character (it's in one of the manuals, I think?)
