Looking Glass: Stranger Things

Part of my intention with this blog has been to find adventure even at home, and in the show Stranger Things, terrifying adventure finds the characters in their own backyards. Since the 2nd season premieres this weekend (and Halloween is just around the corner), the Geeky Fashion Blogger Alliance made their first style challenge theme Stranger Things. Prompted by them, I took to my closet and my own backyard to find something a little unusual in my usual.

Here’s my outfit, inspired by Eleven.

Outfit details: DRESS (H&M- unavailable; Hot Topic alternative) // JACKET (Target – similar) // SHOES (Puma- unavailable) // SOCKS (Smartwool – similar) // PIN (Bottleneck Gallery)

I decided to go the geekbound route because I don’t have any Stranger Things branded clothes or accessories, except for the Demogorgon pin and I remembered I had a pink dress with a white collar. And yes, if you clicked the jacket link, the one I’m wearing is from the Boys’ section in the largest size available. These are the perks of being a smallish person.

I built the rest of the outfit from there, finding things I had that were similar to the Eleven look I was going for. The only thing I had to buy was a box of Eggos.

Who knows, I might make this my Halloween costume. I have a blonde wig in storage.

So, are you excited for the newest adventure in the Upside Down?
