I’m developing quite the collection of ‘alien’ inspired pieces lately, leggings especially, but I couldn’t resist adding this killer pair from Evil Twin to the collection too, with their glossy, xenomorph-like ribbed panels. You all know by now that I’m a huge sci-fi nerd & I can never resist items of clothing that remind me in a subtle way of my favourite movies, games or characters. Alien is easily one of my all time favourites, combining my love of horror, sci-fi, a kickass heroine & the incredible art of HR Giger too. Plus, I mean, what girl wouldn’t want to be Ripley?! I think I may have been subconsciously channeling her a little bit here, with the biker jacket & stompy boots. Perfect Halloween non-costume I think!

I feel like I shouldn’t say this, as no doubt I will be moaning about the weather again very soon, but I’m secretly quite glad it’s turned bitterly cold. It means I can dig out some of my favourite pieces, the big coats & heavy sweaters, and of course the best winter accessory – the (faux) fur snood. I’ve been making myself a few in different colours this past week, and I’m not sure why I didn’t make a black one sooner! Kind of a duh moment there… I have a feeling this isn’t going to be leaving my neck for quite sometime!

Also, today is actually FAIIINT’s 2nd birthday! Crazy to think I have been doing this for two years now, it feels like less than one! There shall be a nice giveaway on Monday to celebrate properly, so keep an eye out for that!

      The leggings totally make this outfit I think, definitely one of my current favourite things! :D I’m the same, never prepared for summer either, always desperately clinging onto my spring/autumn clothes, I hate being too hot!

      Thankyou! :) I’ve been growing my hair for ages, it probably needs a bit of a trim now tho!

    I need those leggings doll. What an amazing look, and you look fabulous as usual. I can’t never get tired of saying that you rock all black like no other. The best blogger rocking all black looks if you ask me.

    Wow those leggings are so, so cool! Lately I have been loving garments, shoes, bags etc, which are paneled, especially garments with leather paneling!
    And I love that the cut of your top is asymetric- it gives a more edgy feeling to it! :)

      I can never get enough of paneled things either, I really love dresses with some kind of paneling, such a nice way to add a little detail!

    Happy blog anniversary dear Steph! That’s another great all black outfit and, being a fan of sci-fi and similar movie, I completely understand your love for alien-inspired pieces! Caterina

      Thankyou Caterina! :) It’s always nice to wear things that show a little of your personality I think, especially when it’s subtle like this. I have to say, all of my more geeky friends, and the boys especially, gave this the nod of approval! Hah.

      She so is! I wanted to be her since I first saw that movie when I was like 7! She is the ultimate strong female character, so kick ass. Thankyou for the birthday wishes too! :)

    i love that you make your own snoods, that burgundy one you posted on insta looked amazing and so does this! love the slight army feel to your jacket, it’s SUCH a good layering piece! and those leggings are rad too. happy 2nd birthday ;) x

    • Posted 04.11.2013 at 2:25 pm | Permalink

      Thankyou! :) I’m in love with the burgundy too, it’s such a beautiful colour! This jacket will always be one of my faves, it was one of my first properly expensive purchases, and it’s so classic too, I think I’ll be wearing it till it falls apart! ;)

    You’re so talented Steph! I absolutely love your faux fur snood, I saw it on Nico on Instagram the other day and loved it. Except for the actual being cold part, I’m enjoying the cold weather too. I love layering up and snuggling down in blankets and knitwear in front of the fire. The pitch black at 5pm caught me by surprise this year, but now I’m getting used to it again and trying to make the most of any hours of actual daylight we have! xxx

    • Posted 04.11.2013 at 2:28 pm | Permalink

      The dark is the worst part, getting up when it’s dark & getting home when it’s dark is a bit depressing! But the other nice bits of winter make up for it I think! :) I wish Nico would have kept it on, he looked so cute/funny in it, but he just pulled it off as soon as I took a photo! Hah.

  16. Posted 04.11.2013 at 10:56 am | Permalink

    Oh gosh Steph, I want those leggings and I want them NOW! Waaaah. Jade would love them too. Happy 2nd Birthday! :) Btw, I am always drawn to garments/accessories called Tara haha, it’s the weirdest thing!? xo

    • Posted 04.11.2013 at 2:30 pm | Permalink

      They’re awesome aren’t they?! They are even better than I expected when I saw them in person too! Thankyou! :D And I’m the same, I think subconsciously I think ‘it’s like me, it’s a sign, I have to buy it!’ hahah.
