Style: Heatproof B&W +Cats

Summer heat has been feverish in Austin. The type of climate where you don’t care to go out, because being outside is synonym of melting alive. I’ve been trying to pick outings where I don’t spend much time under the sun. We decided to go to the movies (the joys of air conditioning).
This is what I wore to go see Guardians of the Galaxy last weekend. Pretty fun movie (8 out of 10 in my opinion).

Lipstick: Shiro Cosmetics in Why Not Zoidberg?
Dress: Hot Topic
Backpack: Karne Cruda
Shoes: Skechers
Earrings: Urban Body Jewelery

Decided to go for an all black look with white accessories. Kept it minimal because of the heat but used the opportunity to wear tights. This dress is very light since it’s mostly made of cotton, it was a lucky find from the Sale rack at Hot Topic (there was only one left!) years ago. I’m wearing a black tank top and shorts underneath the dress.
The white creepers were a curious find at Burlington (they only cost $10!).
My beloved vinyl zebra backpack was purchased years ago during my trip to Argentina (A dreamland when shopping for alternative attire).

Oh and this white cat is very friendly (more than the black and white one in the tail picture). 😛
Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy? ♥

  1. I love your style! Can’t argue with bargains either 😛 I struggle in the heat too. Although, I’m sure we get nothing as hot as you guys do over there.

    It’s not my usual cup of tea, but I’m almost tempted to go and see guardians of the galaxy because it’s been getting such good reviews lately! I might hold out until Interstellar comes out though. I’m really looking forward to that x
