Morticia Inspired

Growing up, I spent quite some time watching the addams family. My favorite character of the bunch definitely had to be Morticia Addams. Maybe it was her black outfit or her underlying allure, whatever it was, I just adored the character.

A while back, I out shopping with my mum and I saw this dress hanging from a rather dingy store and all I could think of was Morticia Addams, I'ts a thrifted piece but I must say, I'm in love with it. Now the dress isn't as long as that of Morticia's but its pretty nice cause it makes it much better for day to day wear. A younger me swore never to wear bell sleeves and I fought a battle with that bit of myself when I picked up this dress, I hated the way they looked when I was much younger and the irony of it all just makes me laugh because I see myself loving the things I hated when I was  younger. 

I added a fedora hat because the heat in Lagos at the moment is rather unbearable to be honest, and I've gotta shield my face from the sun, man cant go around squinting anyhow. For footwear, I decided on  basic blocks sandals cause they are pretty practical not too dressy and pretty casual and comfortable too.

I opted for as little jewelry as possible for two reasons. 1) I'm not a jewelry person 2) This weather isn't conducive for such behavior to be honest.

Dress - Laundry by Shelli Segal (thrifted)
