Weekly Outfit Roundup: (03/20/2017-03/26/2017)

Hello all!

So much has happened since my last post. I’ve been feeling out a variety of jobs ranging from a full-time position at a call center to a part time position working for Ulta as I try to balance my interests with the need to make a living, leaving me little time for my blog. I’m hoping this hectic time in my life will soon straighten itself out so I can really plunge back into my blog and commit to it like I was able to when a student.

That said, as I’ve wholeheartedly committed to my position with Ulta, my wardrobe is going to be undergoing a bit of a change. With a wardrobe that must be black (or black and white) for the role, I’m hoping to switch my wardrobe to one with a more 1940s focus so I can properly play up the colorful accessories – aka hats – I plan to don for my shifts. While I’ll wear my normal, colorful garb on off days, you can bet that I’m using this opportunity as a little push to start truly experimenting with ’40s hair and fashions as I’ve been debating doing for ages. I’m almost as excited for this as I am for the actual job!

Anyway, without further ado, here’s my last week of full, slap-you-in-the-face, brightly colored wardrobe images.

Enjoy!

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar

 

Tuesday’s Look

This was the day I decided to quit my full-time position in order to join the Ulta team, and wanted to go out with a bang in one of my favorite outfits that includes Vance Clothing’s marvelous hand-painted Hercules skirt she made for me.

Wednesday’s Look

I realized upon accepting the Ulta position that I have…very little plain black in my wardrobe, so my roomie and I quickly went thrifting downtown to look for clothes for me to wear. Walking around outside naturally meant bringing out the summer clothes for our warm weather. I was honestly surprised I still fit into this set, considering my weight gain the last few months. Thank goodness I did! One of my favorite looks. Casual ’50s is so underrated in the vintage and pinup community these days, if you ask me.

Saturday’s Look

I volunteered to help a local shop vend at our local Street Fair, so once again, had to prepare for lots of heat and sweat. I certainly stood out in a shop that primarily sells black clothes! But I’ve been DYING to wear this custom made dress since I received it months ago and couldn’t pass up the opportunity…particularly knowing my upcoming wardrobe color restrictions.
