DIY Collar, Helping Hands Collar Tips c/o Merrin & Gussy, H&M Black Coat, Dark Green Chiffon Dress c/o LOVE, Lock & Key Belt c/o Romwe, Long Faux Leather Gloves c/o Oasap, Target Knit Tights, White Mountain Booties

So... this look wasn't initially supposed to be inspired by a certain god known as Loki Laufeyson, but it happened on accident (I swear). I did notice slight Loki inspiration as I accessorized the dress with gold accents, however, I wasn't consciously trying to mimic his attire. But once I tossed on the long black coat so I could stay warm at school, there was no turning back! I dare say that I am burdened with the glorious purpose of dressing like this snazzy fellow without even trying! If you haven't watched The Avengers, I imagine the previous sentence sounded rather odd in your head. Those of you who have will probably see the resemblance of this look to the outfit Loki wore at the fancy party when he was walking down the stairs.

I did not make these gifs; they were taken from this source
I really adore this dress from LOVE! The color is the perfect shade of Loki-green, and I love the way the chiffon falls on the body. It actually has a peephole/slit in the bust as you can see in the stock photo here, but the dress ended up being a bit loose in the bust on me so the slit didn't fall on the right place. This was easily solved by turning the dress backwards though since the front and back sides are pretty much identical except for the slit! I also received this dress in burgundy red, so they are perfect for the Christmas season!! <3 I can't wait to wear these gloves with more outfits too; I love collecting gloves, especially long ones that go over your elbow, as they keep you warm and look really elegant with dresses!
