What I Wore Wednesday: Rocky Horror Picture Show

We've had so much on lately and work has been crazy busy--I'm just perpetually exhausted. Last week though I went to go see the Rocky Horror Show with my friend Susan at the Kings Theatre in Glasgow. I'm a HUGE RHPS fan and I'd never seen the stage show so I was really excited. Since I was coming straight from work and Susan was taking the train in alone we nixed the idea of costumes. I did give myself a Rocky Horror inspired manicure though for good measure.





Black and Blonde Glasses: Vivienne Westwood
Black Top: HM
Skull Scarf: Chelsea
Black Plaid Skirt: New Look
Black Leggings: Marks and Spencer
Studded Ballet Flats: New Look

I bought the skirt from the same sale I bought the sugar skull necklace from last week but I'm still not 100% on it. I needed a new skirt though and it was £8 so it worked. I should be able to wear a lot of different tops with it since it's black but since it's plaid it isn't too boring. Kilts are totally back this A/W and plaid makes me think of kilts so it's vaguely trendy, right?

I'm really struggling to string two words together so I will leave it at that! This week I'm enabling voting so vote for your favourite linked up look! I'll let you know who everyone liked best next week!

 



Let's be friends! Find me here:

I love the plaid! Looks like it will be fun to layer up in the fall and winter too.

I've only seen RHPS once, but never went to the theater to see it, despite encouragement from some of my friends. I was always a little scared after they told me what they do to RHPS virgins there, haha.

Melaina25 said...

Oh I really love your nails too cute!!! I also love RHPS and the shows are always amazing and a great excuse to dress up in something a little different, you look fab :)

Melaina25 said...

The manicure is fab and I love your scarf!! :)

Melaina25 said...

I LOVE the Rocky Horror Picture Show!!!!!!!!!!! Dammit. Janet.

Melaina25 said...

I think since it's a neutral, scaled-down plaid, it should be a pretty versatile skirt - great find! :)

Melaina25 said...

That's my hope :)

Melaina25 said...

I so want to find out how you get the rights so I can do a charity showing/performance now :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks!

Melaina25 said...

Lol thanks :)

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

I wish I hand't been going straight from work or I'd totally gone in costume :)

Melaina25 said...

I had my RHPS virginity taken at 16 :) I promise they won't make you do anything too scary and it's such fun!

Melaina25 said...

Of course!
