Winter Solstice

Hello my lovelies
There are only 9 days left until the 2014 Winter Solstice.
I decided to name this look "Winter Solstice" because I've always been interested in the Pagan & Wiccan Religions. Plus my look is kind of reflective to these "Modern Witches"
The Winter solstice, (also known as Yule) is a widely celebrated holiday.
Here are some facts about it:

DEC. 21st 2014
Also known as Christmas, Yule, & Saturnalia
Shortest day of the year, but the longest night.
It's when Withches and Warlocks celebrate the birth of the Sun God 
The days get longer from this point forward
Wiccan Celebrations include Yule logs, Yule Trees, Mistletoe
At the North Pole, The Sun never Rises on this day.
& here are some other facts:
·        goddesses:Great Mother, Isis, Mary, Tonazin, Lucina, Bona Dea
·        gods:Sun Child, Horus, Jesus, Mithras, Santa/Odin, Saturn, Holly King
·        rituals:personal renewal, world peace, honoring family & friends

·        customs: wreaths, lights, gift-giving, singing, feasting, resolutions

"Winter Solstice for pagans is a time of feasting and the exchanging of gifts and is the original Holiday that the Christian religions modified into their own Christmas, even up to the birth of the child (Most theologians who have spent time studying the birth of Jesus admit he was born in either March or April, not the celebrated Christmas date we all know from the standard calendar - it was moved to this date to help induce Pagans to give up their old ways yet allow them their holidays during the spread of Christianity through Europe and the British Isles). Traditional adornments are a Yule Log, usually of oak, and a combination of mistletoe and holly (also all later plagiarized into Christian ways)." (SOURCES: HERE & HERE)

Rainy Day

Rainy Day.

Hello lovelies!
Sorry I always post my Fashion Fridays so late xD
I should start calling them Fashion Saturdays

Also I apologize for saying last week that I would post a purchase post,
I've been super busy with projects for finals in my Studio classes.

To make up for it, I will post the purchase post and a post showing
my projects and drawings! :)

This title fits this look perfectly first of all because 
my scarf has little yellow umbrellas all over it, and second
because it has been rainy for a couple of days here in Indiana.
The weather has been horrible overall.
It has been rainy and about 30-40 degrees :(

That's why I had to take pictures in my apartment this time.

My links:

This look:
Fur Pom Beanie – SIX - Their Website $10 (I'm not sure if they have an online store)
Umbrella Scarf - Hottopic - HERE $6.99
Striped Crop Top - Pacsun (Nollie) - Their Website on Pacsun Mine was ~$5
(I bought this a couple years ago when a pacsun was going out of business)
High Rise Skinny Jeans -Mudd - Kohl's - HERE $9.50
Faux Leather Booties - Forever21 - Similar HERE & HERE $11 (on sale)
Outfit Total: ~ $42.50


 Here is a closeup of the print on my scarf :)
The umbrellas definitely remind me of Hayao Miyazaki's "My Neighbor Totoro" <3
found on google
