There’s not a lot of origin stories in my life I can take my mind back too. I can’t remember when I became obsessed with fashion, specifically alternative fashion. But I can remember vividly when I fell in love with horror movies.. I was a young kid, and the original scream had just came out. Drew Barrymore delivered a petrifying performance and I was sincerely terrified for all of five seconds.. before I was filled with intrigue. The cinematography, the special effects.. Literally everything about horror entranced me. It was story telling.. but so farfetched.. that the creators, (including my favorite) would have to bring an allure of reality.. and fantasy together.
ClaustroClothic #12: Just A Girl Who Loves Horror.
I recently mentioned in a blog that my best friend had her first baby… (Though her son is just past three years old), she built a business revolved around sugar.. spice.. and everything fashionably nice. I was immediately stoked. When she told me she was dropping a horror piece, I didn’t know what to expect.. I sat on pins and needles for weeks, and then she said “it’s done.”
My first concern: None of these filtered CoVid masks fit me. I didn’t even know they came in different sizes. She was like a scientist cultivating three different sizes, a small, medium, and large that truly fit.
The design for the mask was dare I say… killer?
The matching shirt..
The matching shirt..
THE MATCHING SHIRT???
Let me get real with you for a second..
I’m a petite xs. A lot of the outfits you’ve seen me rock.. have this truck in the back where I tie a ponytail holder around my shirt, making sure all the excess space between me and my ideal fit are practically inexistent. It’s very seldom I’ve thrown on a shirt that fit me, like a glove. I had already washed the shirt by accident and was expecting to color to faded or the design to wash away, get crinkled, something… no. It’s still perfect. And I noticed.. tucked neatly into the side were care instructions, that could’ve helped had I seen it before I thrown it in the wash. Not her fault I’m blind, but I didn’t follow those directions and still came out with a perfect shirt.
So how did I bring that Medda Made It style into my wardrobe??
The hair: Weave N Luxury.
The hat: That Make America Rock Again Thirty Seconds To Mars snapback.
The collar: The unspiked Caden from SKG Designs
The Pants: Tripp NYC
Vegan leather white jacket: hand customized by me..
I no longer give attention to the company that created my shoes. I’m still on the hunt for some alternative shoe companies.
