The Vintage Illusionist

Black tee shirt, BCBGeneration. Brocade lace skirt, Altar'd State. Draped cardigan, Anthropologie. Vintage belt, Margaret Smith bag, and shoes. 

     Although there are no real illusions present in my outfit from last Friday, something about the last photograph I took made me think that I seemed like I would pull a disappearing act (below the text). Maybe it was the haunting mood around the graveyard or the somewhat odd expressions on my face, but looking back on these pictures gives me a sense of unease in the best possible way. 
      I'm not big on the cheesy frightening things in horror movies, but I always seem to have the best connections with places or items with a lot of history behind them. I'm fascinated by somewhat creepy things while at the same time being too superstitious to bring vintage pictures of strangers into my house. 
      Do you have any interests that others might consider odd? What are your superstitious hang ups? It's a fascinating thing to learn about people, especially when applied to the realm of archetypes/the collective unconscious.

Your skirt is just stunning Ashlyn! I wouldn't consider myself a superstitious person; I do make wishes on eyelashes... and everyone around me thinks that's silly. I think so too, to a certain extent, but I still do it haha!

Love the outfit! That's been my go-to look lately, but with high-waisted shorts instead of a skirt. (Sitting in band for an hour and a half ain't conducive to wearing skirts/feeling comfortable!)

Weird interests...hmm. I'll have to think about that one. Snails?

I'm adoring this bag and those vintage shoes right now. Soo soo pretty. :) I also enjoy your curious expression...it fits the atmosphere of these photos!

I'm not superstitious but I really like watching documentaries or reading about things like that...!
