ClaustroClothic #27: Alternative Fashion // Jada Pinkett Inspired

You already know what today is! Saturday which is the day this blog always celebrates alternative fashion with another ClaustroClothic. This week, I had a mental Flashback to Magic Mike XXL. Let’s see if you catch the vibe…

ClaustroClothic #26 Alternative Fashion // Jada Pinkett Inspired

I’ve been trying to create a special section of ClaustroClothic that is geared toward business professionals. I wanted to be able to kill the stigma that you’re not allowed to be goth and professional. If you’ve seen any of my “professional outfits”, then you’ve heard this all too many times before. I’d like to point out that I look a bit rugged in this session. It was taken a couple days before my first tooth extraction but when the idea came to me, I just couldn’t sit it out! I had to have it shot!

This look was inspired by

Jada Pinkett Smith was Rome in the movie Magic Mike XXL. There were so many memorable scenes in that movie with her… There was the moment Channing Tatum walked up to her at her mansion, the dance off where she introduces him.. There was that minute she walked up to Amber Heard, and of course my personal favorite… her introduction at the showcase, where she says.. “My Queens, my Queens.”

That character literally exudes power and solidarity. She inspires me… It was easy to visualize her completely while building this outfit. My goal was to channel that power, that confidence, and create that magic.

The bulk of this look..

is from Discovery Clothing. That black and white button down shirt is one of my favorites of all time.
Underneath that, I’m wearing the Selene Harness from the leather collection of SKG Designs paired with the Selene Body Cage Garter belt as well.

Favorite Part of the Outfit:

The hat! Next time my SKG Gear, I wasn’t sure how I was going to complete this outfit. The hat did it. It was a gift given to me by Vixen Domo, a model in Iowa who said when she first saw the hat, she knew that it was so me. It is me. Down to a tee too. It really gives me confidence to know that the moment I put it on my head, I said to myself… This is the look. 

What Other Business Professional Looks have I done so far?

Are you into alternative fashion but don’t know what to do? Don’t worry babe! I’ve got more looks cooked up for you and more on the way! <3

ClaustroClothic #33 was inspired by Michaela Pratt, a character from the show How To Get Away With Murder. #37: Is what I wore the day Trump got voted into office. It was the worst day but it was a look. There are many more coming, so if you subscribe to the blog you’ll be able to catch them all as soon as they drop!

The Weirdest Girl // Killstar – Jasemine Denise

Alright, alright. So I was a little late to the Killstar train, but I literally held out for my first purchase the moment I saw this Weird Girl crop top. I knew at that point that I had to make my first purchase, and figure out an outfit to go with it. I left this look out of the ClaustroClothic archive, because it’s a pretty damn good standalone. Plus, it gives me an excuse to fan girl.

The Weirdest Girl // Killstar

A little stranger.. or a little weirder?

Let me start off by saying that I was the very last one of my friends to jump on the Stranger Things train and I regret every single second wasted. First off, David Harbour? Beautiful. Millie Bobby Brown, protect her. Winona Ryder? FOREVER.

I didn’t start watching till Stranger Things 2 came out. That’s right. I cheated. Yet, immediately after I finished.. I wanted to talk about it. Like everything else I’ve ever become a fan of, it became a part of me. Hence, “weird girl.”

This outfit?

Probably the least weirdest thing I’ve put together this year. It’s simple actually, and if you know me well enough.. you know I don’t do simple.

Probably the most extra part of the outfit? My shoes. Sometimes, I’m an accessory girl. That Lina belt from SKG Designs? Subtle. The Fiona collar (You saw me wearing that when I was rocking the Echelon on my back too!) Chill. The shoes? The shoes are what say.. “Hey listen. I came to be the most weird girl. THE MOST EXTRA. The most me!

What can I say, something on me has to be doing the most?

What about you?

Have you watched Stranger Things and Stranger Things 2 yet? What’s your favorite part? Are you Team Steve like all my girls or are you Team Jonathan like literally only me? Tell me in the comments!

In the meantime, don’t forget to follow my Instagram for my daily fashion looks and subscribe to the blog to see photoshoots the moment they drop! 

Stay weird. <3

ClaustroClothic #28: Business Professional Goth

The most asked question I’ve gotten in my career is how I manage to pull of being a “Professional goth”. It makes me giggle every time. I picture myself in all black, dressed to impress, in a harness… Then it hit me. Can I truly be a business professional goth?

ClaustroClothic #28: Business Professional Goth

Let me start off by saying two things. Number One: I have no idea what your definition of “goth” is. I just picture all black, dark, and kinda angry looking. My only goal here was to combine alternative fashion with business casual to create something intriguing. Number two: I had just dyed my hair with Splat the day I did this photoshoot, so it’s gonna look like I’m bleeding purple out of my skull. You’ve been warned.

The key to this.. Keep it subtle. I started off by getting a blazer. That was the most important part. I had never, up until this point, owned an actual blazer. I got the idea from Ariel, who has so many blazer looks!

Underneath that shrug, I’m definitely wearing my red and black Dita Harness from SKG Designs. (I can’t style an outfit without a little SKG.)

Topped of with my new purple hair (Which is really just a test dye for an upcoming cosplay collab), the dark look just serves live.

Top Harness: Dita // Belt: Lina // Shrug: From Wish //

To top it all off, my favorite.. Iron Fist Heels. These specifically are little devils and they add a little accent to every look. Even if you stripped me off the harnesses, I’d still wear my devils. That’s my way of saying “Hey, I’m professional today but any other day.. Girl. I’ve got a totally different style!” Surprisingly, my shoes are normally the topic of conversation wherever I go, so they’re a great conversation starter at networking events!

What sort of looks do you wanna pull off?

This isn’t my first business professional goth look! Check out ClaustroClothic #37 for a more subtle version of the business professional goth look. You can also see my daily fashion by visiting my Instagram page! <3

Dominque wearing the Deviant Harness Set in Red

You’ve seen Dominque here before, but you’re probably more accustomed to seeing her decked out in Fashion Nova. Dominque’s style has always been something urban mixed with a little bit of edge. Sometimes, like our first session published on JDcom, she’s wearing dresses and high heels. Other times, she’s got on a pair of kicks and a comfortable outfit. This just so happened to be one of those times, and topped off with a Deviant chest harness and waist cage, she slayed it.

I felt like the outfit couldn’t have been complete without a red leather jacket, so I loaned her mine and dare I say.. She wore it better than I ever could!

Would you wear this outfit?

Didn’t she do a fantastic job? You can check out more of Dominque’s modeling on her website or Instagram page!  Do you have some SKG Designs of your own? Make sure you follow Shop Kinky Girly’s official instagram page and stay updated for when there’s a popup photoshoot event in your city! You can score a chance to shoot with Jasemine Denise Photography.

Also, stay tuned. I share a secret about this outfit in my next ClaustroClothic and Dominque makes a special guest star appearance in it! Subscribe to the blog to see it first!

ClaustroClothic #29: Gals and Roses // Alternative Fashion

Are you a fan of alternative fashion? Remember that ClaustroClothic is a series where you get to see all of my crazy looks, and if it’s been a while like it has this time.. then you can go back through the ClaustroClothic archive and see all of my older looks!

ClaustroClothic #29: Gals and Roses // Alternative Fashion

It’s no secret that I love the band Guns N’ Roses. Hell, I have a whole ClaustroClothic devoted to it. However, for years I pretended as though I didn’t love roses… Rose print. Rose flowers. Rose gold, any of it. As I transition into my late adulthood, I’ve come to learn that if you stop pretending with yourself.. you’ll be able to get more of what you wanted..

What makes this outfit special?

Every bit of this outfit was bought at different times. Alternative fashion for me is never about what you’ve got but what you can put together with what you’ve got. Some of my greatest outfits were formed by accident. The sheer robe was the first purchase. It was bought from Discovery Clothing a little over a year ago. Then came the bralette which is also from Discovery but from a completely different store in a different side of Chicago.

The skirt is the final addition, coming from a secondhand store right around the corner from my house.
It’s insane how I saw it and the rest of the outfit came to life before my eyes.

I knew I had to have my red and black hair, my red corset, my heartshaped shades from Ragstock and a two toned harness from SKG.

It’s like.. When you know, you know.

The Shoes //

Alright, I love love love Iron Fist. I’ve been putting these shoes with so many outfits lately. I don’t even care how many people are like “You wear those shoes all the time!” You damn right I do. They’re comfortable, they’re the type you can get away with in a business professional look. I simply love them.

That’s the look!

SKG Designs Sunday // Punk Princess

I shoot so much SKG Designs, it’s safe to say the secret’s out. If you don’t follow Shop Kinky Girly on Instagram or Twitter, then you may not know that we’re business soulmates. What does that mean? It means that if you own some SKG Designs, you can get a photoshoot in it any time.. for free. A free mini session, as long as I’m in your city when the moment happens. That also means that I have a lot of SKG Designs lookbook photos that you just need to see. So, every other Sunday.. I’m gonna show you some awesome ways to style the gear created by my models and other customers of SKG!

SKG Designs Sunday // Punk Princess

This look was first published on SKG Designs, and I felt it needed another share. If you’re into Ru Paul’s Drag Race, prepare yourselves… There’s an easter egg in this. You may remember Vickie but she’s been modeling with Jasemine Denise Photography over a year now. We even shot her wedding boudoir last October. It’s safe to say she’s definitely my style crush and it carries straight over to SKG!

Let’s talk about the back of that jacket shall we?

I’m a sucker for punk looking things but I’m an even bigger sucker for things that make a statement.

Vickie, a gal after my own heart, DIY’ed this jacket together.

Look at the fuzzy little details!

What’s just as awesome is that she paired some amazing SKG Designs gear with this look!

ClaustroClothic #31: Halloween Fashion

It’s October! Can you believe it’s still in the sixties here? I’m trying to whip out all my Halloween fashion looks, including this one in my new fur bomber jacket gifted to me by Keeley and Megan, but… Well goodness, it’s still freaking toasty outside! It didn’t stop me though. I had to serve this look.

ClaustroClothic #31: Halloween Fashion

Everyday is Halloween

I’ve only had a handful of Halloween costumes my whole life. I think that contributes a lot to the style I have. I was Tickle Me Elmo in Kindergarten, complete with a vibrating one piece suit that didn’t run out of batteries. I think I was Esmerelda one year too. By the time I hit my senior year, my entire aesthetic was Halloween fashion. People would walk past me and say “It aint Halloween yet, girl!” and I’d scoff and say “Everyday is Halloween!”

Speaking of Halloween, let’s talk about this headpiece.

Kalika, a model you’ve seen on my Instagram a thousand times, and will see again in just a few weeks is a woman of many talents. She’s a model, she’s a spooky movie enthusiast, and she’s just an all around creative gal.

She made this crown.

Look at the diamond eyes. LOOK AT THE EYES!!! I couldn’t have formed something this creative if my life depended on it, but let’s be honest… I’d probably hot glue my hand to my face by accident if I tried. In case you didn’t know, it takes me forever to craft things.

Underneath that is a ton of my favorite SKG Gear.

I wear my Jasemine harnesses everywhere. Yes, I have two of them, and yes. They are named after me. That’s not bragging. It’s literally the biggest honor ever bestowed upon me because SKG’s leather line… Ugh. HEART EYE. Remember that you can get a discount on your SKG orders anytime by using my code JasemineDenise.

The one I’m rocking on my chest in this outfit, is a custom colored one. Half red leather, half black… because yes. SKG makes red leather options now.

I’m obviously a huge Shop Kinky Girly supporter. I love the way I can style almost every single thing I own with anything. It always seems like there’s an accessory for every outfit. For instance, the Lina collar… Went perfectly with this outfit. All the O rings!!

No outfit would be complete without my boss socks. I had been looking for them for ages and Ray finally found the missing one. Though they don’t exactly match the outfit, they still fit into the fur coat badass woman aesthetic so I threw them in.

Have you been waiting for October to show off your Halloween fashion?

I want to see! Comment this blog post with your favorite Halloween fashion look, your outfit of the days, or pretty much just anything that screams spooky fashion. I love checking out other outfits!

Lookbook: SKG Designs

V is actually rocking a Dollskill dress underneath a fully adjustable Tempest Harness from SKG Designs. Around her neck is a Leona collar  thus completing a sort of pastel goth look that almost contrasts the colorful babydoll dress she’s rocking. Sometimes it’s not just about the dress but the accessories framing the overall aesthetic.

To top it all off, V brought a little extra edge to the look by putting her glasses on. She’s got some unique frames and it really brought a different vibe to the look.
