After doing my vaguely ethnic septum rings post, I've been liking the idea of vaguely ethnic clothing. Vague being the key phrase here. I'm not talking about sticking a fez cap on or wearing a Native American poncho or whatever. I'm talking about completely original ideas that are mostly fantasy. Think Star Trek or fantasy books about fictional cultures. Not cultural appropriation.
I saw this sweater on the clothing rack and it just looked like it was from an alien world. I was never more sure of anything in my life when I tried it on. I think this is going to be my new signature look. I wore it to the office yesterday.
|This is my normal face. I'm not pissed off!|
The designer is Gary Graham and it's woven from baby alpaca. Heavenly to wear. And yes, I definitely bought it on sale. I've never heard of this designer, but his stuff is exactly the vaguely ethnic stuff I've been thinking about:
|I don't own any ethnic-looking septum rings, so I just wore two rings through my piercing for a layered look.|
|Here's my hair. porcupine hairsticks and I braided a piece.|
|you know WHAT... why do the mirror selfies always show your outfit best?|
|detail. The sun colored this with a warm glow. It's very beige in color.|
Gary Graham tunic sweater Fall 14 (or 13..too lazy to look it up)
Dollar store fleece leggings
Maya organic 22k gold bone and bunch design
2-inch hoochie hoop black captive
14g gold septum clicker
18g gold-colored titanium seamless ring (also worn through septum)

2 porcupine quills used as hairsticks (I did a hairstick post in January, for those interested)
Hope I'm not spooking out my dark fashion readers with this most undark look! Give it to me in the comments below.
