@PlanetBrandee Part 4: Your Guide to Mystic March
(or how I school you in the ways of building your own wanderlust gypsy witch wardrobe!)
Welcome to the FINAL FRIDAY, my faithful readers! The past few weeks we’ve burnt some sage, danced to witchy women tunes, winked at some fabulous Morticia GIF-filled inspiration, leapt on our brooms into Parts 2 and 3 of the series talking about RINGS and VELVET inspiration, and now we bring it all together 90’s redux style with Part 4: Craftiness!
Part 4: Get your CRAFT on!
Seriously – we’ve gone on quite a magical journey the past 30 days, with tons of outfits worthy of any sorceress, but Part 4 is when we bring it ALL together! Grab the velvet, grab the rings and the perfectly curated craft outfits, cause we’re going full Morgana here!
But first why are we so obsessed with this ultra grunge-meets-Hot Topic flick? A lil’ bit of history: “The Craft was actually a 1996 American supernatural horror film directed by Andrew Fleming and starring Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True. The film’s plot centers on a group of four teenage girls who pursue witchcraft and use sorcery for their own gain. The film was released on May 3, 1996, by Columbia Pictures and it was a box office success at the time with earnings of $55 million against a budget of $15 million.”
In short, it brought a whole generation girls out of Lisa Frank town and into the world of black fishnets and dark leggings, plus mini skirts (pre-Britney!) and eyeliner to die for. So, let’s look at some ladies who have gone above and beyond in nailing the look. Grab your gal and guy pals, head to your local Goodwill thrift to find fantastic pieces to pull this look together for next to nothing, and get your grunge on! Here we have a group kicking the plaid with a tasty Nine Inch Nails groove! Leather skirts? White as white shirts? Layering like a flannel Nirvana champ? YES!
If you’ve got the pale skin thing nailed down, go full Fairuza Balk, layer some deep reds, a strong brow game and a nose ring — you can even repurpose and older earring into one!
More Cali than Cult? Go gold skin and Neve it up! Keep it simple with a cap sleeve white tank and simple silver chain! We found one ultra 90s, post-Madonna style at Goodwill for only $7.99! SCORE!
So the spell has been cast! Blessed be the fashion! Did you love like Morticia? Dig the amulet zen? Snap a pic and share it with me for a chance to be featured! And stay tuned for my next #travel #adventure in April which has me going to a new destination, but shhhh…that’s STILL secret for now!
