I love this theme, I did some background work on it too..

I used blue because its a very depressed colour (e.g Im feeling blue) and I did a knot instead of a bow because depressed people dont get things done, and I just wanted a simple shoe and bag to give the "Not caring" look. Then I used some personal reference with depression with the yellow at the bottom, because in the night I would to the window and look at all the lights from all over, and I thought the dark blue was perfect for this as the night sky...

This one was really difficult... "depressed chic" is so self-contradictory to me. So I decided to go theatrical - with apologies to Galliano, of course.

The outfit is made of skimpy, thin jersey. When I'm depressed I want to cover up but I also feel exposed, so the outfit doesn't quite qualify as "dressed". Red strings of beads at the wrists and the necklace, which is threaded through holes in the old distressed t-shirt. Topping it off are dirty old white sneakers, which is just the world's most depressing footwear. Her mascara and eyeliner and hair seems to be dripping off her face, and her sweater is bleach-stained, while her shirt is dirt stained. Bleah.

*sigh*... and I'm actually having a great week too, so it's hard to get into that depressed headspace

For 'Depressed Chic' I have used a jumper and long skirt to cover-up, which is what most depressed people want to do.



The jumper is a very plain blue v-neck, which shows they can't be bothered with fancy clothes. However, it is three-quarter length sleeves and fitted so that it isn't scruffy.

The skirt is a blue (the colour hasn't come up very well in the scan) silk skirt. It is slightly crumpled, but not enough to make it very noticable.

The scarf around the waist is black, to add some darkness to it. It is tied loosely round the waist to show a slight lack of interest in the outfit.

On her feet are ballet flats. Plain, simple shoes which are easy to slip on and go with anything.

I don't think there's a right or wrong... what's interesting is how many different ways individuals can interpret a topic... it's so interesting to see people come up with stuff I never would have thought of... I like your drawing, too!

TourniquetMX, Its wonderful I love the colour too, the shade of your blue is almost grey, and very dull and lifeless...I think its good for the theme, but I guess people have different views, works for me anyway
