A Sack Dress & Freeform Dreads: Month 21

 ♦

Hello, lovelies!  This is Month 21 of having freeform dreadlocks, which means I’ve been growing my locs for almost 2 years.  Woot!  It’s been such an experience witnessing how hair can have a mind of its own.

Here’s what I wore.  I bought this sack dress from Amazon.  While baggy clothing (especially on women) are not liked by many people, I love baggy clothes. Loose clothing can be quite flattering and I like how I look in this sack dress. Keep in mind that I also like harem pants, so there you go.

OOF! These boots are in desperate need of polishing.

 

 

 

Boots: Fit Flop (brand)

 

Here’s my face.  Again, I went with simple makeup.  It’s cold, and when it’s cold, I tend not to put much effort into a full face of makeup.  Sometimes as a goth, eyeliner just has to be enough.

Here’s how my locs are progressing.  They’re getting longer and more “springier”.  My birthday’s not until the 17th, but I went ahead and labeled this month’s loc progression, “Birthday Dreads”, for obvious reasons.

 

 

 

So, how do you lovelies feel about loose, baggy clothes?  I used to wear short, body-hugging clothing, but that was many years (and many pounds) ago.  If you want to see a middle-aged goth posing and jumping around to punk rock, be sure to check out this video.

Lazy Goth & Freeform Dreads: Month 13

image

This month is the start of Year Two of growing my dreadlocks.  You can finally see distinct locs and I think they’ve “officially” matured.  It will be interesting to see how long they get by May 2017. 

This will be a pretty short post.  Very light makeup and a very basic outfit – great for the upcoming summer months.  Summer tends to be my “lazy goth” season, so be prepared for seeing minimal makeup.

That’s it for today.  I made a video of my dreadlock growth from the beginning until May of this year.  Please enjoy and TTFN!
