All Black

Oh hi, didn't see you there!
I'm just loving this outfit for no particular reason. I really never wear all black, but I love the way it looks.

I wasn't even chilly because I had the brilliant idea to buy nude sweater tights to wear under my sheers! Genius, amirite? I swear I'm not hanging these cloths up behind me just as a backdrop. They are my senior thesis in progress, stamped fabric that will soon be turned to skirts. I like how they are turning out and I really hope my teacher will like them too!

Oh hey I've been watching a ton of anime lately. Haha. Not so great to do while working, since I have to read the screen, but I'm super into it. I've watched FLCL (you should too), Madoka Magica (very sad), and now Sword Art Online (probs the lamest of the three). On my list is Cowboy Bebop, Soul Eater, and Sailor Moon if I can find it! Give me your recommendations if you have any (but don't recommend Bleach plz).

Dress (worn as shirt): Idk, some boutique
Skirt: American Eagle
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Tights: Target I think
Floral Crown: Made by me
Necklace: F21

I can't wait for the weekend guys. Wbu?


  1. I quite liked Soul Eater. I really liked Full Metal Panic (the second season was the best of them, honestly but you need to watch the first one for it to make sense). And I liked Rurouni Kenshin. It had surprisingly artistic fight scenes, but a good story too. Wow... haven't thought of either of those in years but liked them both.

    Good luck on your project. Liking the black on black look.

  2. Aaaah, I love Sailor Moon! You can watch it here:

    Also, I loved Madoka Magica, FLCL, and Cowboy Bebop. You should check out Kyoukai no Kanata/Beyond the Boundary. That anime is so perfect and gorgeously animated.

    1. Aaahhhh thanks so much Angela!!


    2. Late reply, but you're welcome! I'm always happy to help people with anime needs :)

  3. I love how your outfit features so many different shades and textures of black.

  4. …but, consult to know which episodes are just fillers and can be skipped- the ones that actually follow the manga story are the goooood ones.

  5. I love those shoes! I am pretty much in all black every day :) You should wear it more often, it looks fantastic with your hair :)

  6. Ooh I'm loving on your haircut (you were right, it's great), and this outfit is great! I love the way you've made the floral crown work for chilly weather :)

  7. Hello Rachel,
    It's been awhile since I follow your blog. I love your style and everything you post. You're probably the most talented and creative girl in the whole world.
    By the way, I also have a blog where I publish all the letters that I receive from my penpals. I wonder if you could do an illustration of me for my blog. It would mean the world to me :3
    I wish you all the best.


  8. I think the polka dot really softens the all black look! I love it. And I am so stealing your tights idea, that is genius.

  10. Oooh, I love your crown! And the tights technique is smart. Anime: Avatar! the Last Airbender!!! And that way you don't have to read subtitles

    1. I love ATLA! I haven't been keeping up with the new season, though, I should look into it!

  11. I love how the shape of your top and skirt work together. It's one of my favorite silhouettes.

  12. love the entire outfit & especially the shoes!!


  13. I love the outfit!! Can't wait to see the final product on your senior thesis.. must take photos please!! :3

    I've probably watched FLCL 4 times!! I'm going to start Cowboy Bebop soon. I remember watching a little of Sailor Moon subbed & dubbed on dailymotion/youtube. I think Full Metal Panic and Nana are good to watch! :D
