URSULA


Spiked Headband c/o Oasap, Purple Gothic Bodysuit c/o Motel Rocks, Sparkly Maxi Skirt c/o Oh My Frock

If you were getting the vibe that today's look was inspired by an evil mermaid, then you were correct! Well, even though Ursula is actually a "sea witch," I'm also okay with that title! I kept having the urge to style this bodysuit with all black but I wanted to get away from the black for this look. When I have trouble coming up with unique outfits, I like to go the route of envisioning a character I might want to embody. Instead of worrying as much about whether the colors or patterns match, it redirects my focus into constructing a look that accurately represents the character serving as my inspiration.

Since this bodysuit's gothic pattern reminded me of sea shells on the bust and had the architectural intricacy of a palace building, I wanted to do a look inspired by mermaids! But the purple is on the darker side, which is why I looked towards Ursula, instead of Ariel. I have this perfect sparkly maxi skirt that's made out of sparkly fabric which really glistens in direct sunlight and in addition, the glistening blue color looks a lot like a waterfall. To finish the look, I selected this spiked headband as it looked a lot like an evil crown!

I think these photos might just be the best set of outfit photos I've taken up to date. I'm so happy with the final product! :) I hope you guys like the photos too! <3
