Gypsy Remains

The weather is changing, daylight is shorter, and soon I won’t be able wear dresses & long sleeves. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this day. Happy Autumn!

“I know what I am. Do you?”

From the Ashes

Hello again. I apologize for my absence as I’ve been staying in the shadows since May. Something traumatic happened and I was left to figure out how to move forward. That meant putting a halt on any of my creative endeavors. As time passed, my fire began to burn from the inside out again. So..here I am. Returning to my blog but with a different light. Prepare for a few changes my little flowers..I only hope you’ve missed me.

This outfit was inspired by my latest Netflix binge, Penny Dreadful. It’s absolutely insane that I’d never given the series a chance up until recently. Of course, I fell in love with the storyline! From the clothing, the music, the actors, and the time period the series took place was extremely refreshing and romantic for me. I have an appreciation for historic and traditional things and this show aligned with adoration. Penny Dreadful re-lit the fire I thought I’d burned out. How amazing is it that we get to live in a world where daydreams can become reality AND the past can become present through art?

Recently, I attended the Oddities Flea Market in this look. The outfit was absolutely perfect for the occasion! To be surrounded by people who flock to the dark and unusual just as much as you do is quite the out of body feeling, but a tremendously good one! That’s all for now..

 

Until next time,

Raven

Hat – American Vintage

Going back to my roots with the all black outfit in this look. To be honest, I miss having long black hair to coordinate the entirety of my usual all black style! My pink hair has definitely been fun but summer is winding down and I also want to. My birthday is in a few days and because of the age I’m turning, I’m not excited. I feel like this birthday age is probably going to be one that starts the decline of my excitement for future birthdays. Haha!  Anywho, whenever I purchased this hat I never thought in a million years I would like the way it looked on me! Whenever I wear wigs or have extensions in, hats are one of my favorite accessories to add into looks. I’m normally limited and can’t wear them with my natural curly hair. So, I was super excited to find that this fiddler’s cap fit perfectly on my head.

If I had to describe this look, it’d be a mixture of boho and rock n roll. It’s strange how different both aspects of those styles are and yet they still work so well together. Whenever we imagine Bohemian styles, we probably think of patterns, flowy skirts, and tons of color. This outfit lacks the color, but does have the classic bandana print paired with a suede bag. Those details plus the 60’s sunglasses and fringe vest are what make the outfit eclectic when paired together. This outfit is interchangeable and could be worn on a dinner date or to a music concert! I hope you all have a good summer.

Why I Stopped Modeling

Hello strangers, lurkers, and friends. It’s been awhile since I’ve made any photos with another photographer or did anything in regards to style. I don’t think anyones wondering why not but since we’re here.. I’ll tell ya! I stopped feeling comfortable in front of a camera. It felt as if I was forcing myself to be creative and if it feels pressured, it’s not genuine. If I create something, I want it be 100% with heart. So.. here we are. Creativity and courage snuck back up! Luckily for me, I got to work with one of the best people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in Los Angeles. Ron’s one of my favorite photographers and anyone who gets to be his friend or work with him is extremely lucky.

As summer progresses, the pants cease to exist in my wardrobe. This outfit of the day is an ode to many things I love. From tulle ballerina 80’s skirts, to Lydia Deetz, and chunky platform boots I’d say the outfit has a hint of nostalgia with a dark twist. Having hot pink hair has made me feel extremely bubbly and vibrant which is odd, cause I’m definitely more of a”Does it come in black?” kinda gal. However, I think everyone has light and dark side to their personality and this look kind of reminds me of that!

You’ll Never Be Ready

Time’s goin by extremely fast this year and I feel as if I’ve been learning more about acceptance. What I mean by learning acceptance is you’ll never be ready for anything in life. The older you get, the more it’s about learning to work with what you have. It’s about learning to always try your best. If you did your best, that’s good enough! You have to start believing that. Acceptance of what is, will allow you to grow in ways unimaginable. You just have to try. Accepting that you’re at least trying is the only thing that matters. It’s being hopeful. Be proud of your efforts. A little bit goes a long way and is always better than nothing. Just keep making the effort. Keep going. You’ll get somewhere.

xoxo,

Raven
