Little Red Riding Hood : Frugal Fashion

Your steampunk fashions need not cost and arm and a leg. You can get this entire look for $111.50. cents on ETSY. Mingle it with basic, solid black and/or white pieces you already have in your closet for a complete ensemble.

Little Red Riding Hood {you sure are looking good} in your fleece cosplay hoodie and scarf combo by ForwardMotionArt ...

...and your super vibrant do-it-yourself goggles are a must have for any steampunk red riding hood. They are from jadedminx of Los Angeles, California. The best part is you select your own lens colors.

No steampunk outfit would ever be complete without arm warmers from the iconic Zen And Coffee.

Made of a bottom weight twill and lined with black, this cincher skirt is PERFECT for your inner little Red Riding Hood {or inner pirate, or vampire, or...}. Made by: burntthemacaroni of Chesapeake, VA.

{Dreaming} about a day at the beach.

My stars, It is {so} hot and I am {so} land-locked, dreaming of a sea breeze. To pass the time I search etsy for seahorses, mermaids, octopi. sailors, pirates {arggh}, beaches, oceans and escapes in general. I found some awe inspiring {dare I say titillating} pieces today.

Oh to be a 'shehorse' for just a day and drift out to sea ♥. Cool, serene, and lovely... this signed, digital print is of an original drawing in graphite on paper. Note the beautiful curves and sense of calmness artist Jeffrey Richter portrays by fusing the seahorse with the human form.

Or... perhaps... your dreams are more in mind with those of the fisherman's wife as photographed by Elisa Lazo de Valdez. Whether you draw away or are drawn ever so much closer, you have been moved {dare I say aroused} by natures mystery and beauty.
