Tunic: Thrifted — Camisole: Old Navy — Leggings: Etsy (Carouselink) — Boots: Macy’s — Earrings: Target
When I remembered over the weekend that Gracey’s monthly Literary Stylings challenge was coming up, I knew exactly which book I wanted to base my outfit on.
It may sound familiar to you, because I spent several weeks jabbering about it on Twitter, and just recently wrote a proper book review of it over at Nisaba Be Praised: The Lies of Locke Lamora, by Scott Lynch. My outfit is a little abstract, but I threw on a bunch of black to mirror the black clothing worn by one of Locke’s alter egos, Lukas Fehrwight. The leggings made me think of the Venetian flavor of the city of Camorr, and the intersection of the camisole straps and the racerback of the dress is a nod to the Spider of Camorr, head of the Duke’s secret police.
And, of course, I added in my pointiest earrings to represent the Thorn of Camorr, so that I’m wearing a nice mix of lawfulness and criminality, such as it were.
I just liked the bracelet; it doesn’t represent anything in particular. I enjoy close-reading as much as anybody else, but sometimes a bracelet’s just a bracelet.
Anyhow, go check out the other folks who linked up over at Gracey’s post, and also read my review of The Lies of Locke Lamora. Or just cut out the middleman and read the book yourself–I think it’s pretty dang good, but feel free to prove me wrong!
