INSPIRED: WEDNESDAY ADDAMS

I love having fun with my makeup and clothes! I love experimenting and trying new things and I've been playing around with an idea for a new series on Midnight and Lace for a while. I've been slightly unsure if this was a good idea but I've decided to just go for it and hope you guys like it!
So my plan is that once a month I'm hoping to create a look that is inspired by something- either a person, fictional character, film and create a whole look based on this! I'm hoping it's going to be something fun that will challenge me!

I decided to start of fairly simple, with a character that I take a lot of style inspiration from- Wednesday Addams. So I talk a lot about Wednesday on my blog and how a lot of my style come from her- but I've never really spoken about why she is an inspiration of mine. I love the character of Wednesday and feel like she is someone I can relate to- besides the drinking poison. I have what I guess has come to be known as resting bitch face. To quote Wednesday herself "I'm not perky" I'm not good at showing my emotion so I often worry that I come across as- well a bitch! And I mean I am- but not all the time, I promise! Wednesday taught me that it's okay to not smile all the time and that I shouldn't feel bad for not smiling and that it's probably best if I don't (honestly, I look like a psychopath when I smile).

Wednesday is my true goth self and I love her fierce independence! She is a true feminist who doesn't need a man! I feel like growing up I was never into the whole dating thing (I'm still not!). I think I've always been a bit skeptical when it comes to love- I'm a realist and part of me questions whether love really exists. Right now I'm focusing on myself and what's important and I very much identify with Wednesday in The Addams Family Values when she is asked how she'd feel if someone loved her and she replies with "I'd pity him" I love her witty one liners- which she has a ton of in the films!










Dress- Zara // Shoes- Docs //Bracelet & Choker- Links of London // Bone Clips- Depop // Wednesday Doll- JGDrawings. 
She stands up for the outcasts, reminds us all to embrace our quirkiness, take no shit from anyone and how to hide a body if needs be! I would argue she is the coolest kid I think there will ever be...

I hope you like this idea for a new blog series- I'd love your thoughts and any suggestions you have for Inspired posts!

  12. I love this look! And I also love Wednesday Adams! I have a similar dress to this actually, but it's from Bershka. I haven't worn that dress yet and I'm definitely looking at your outfit post as an inspiration.
