...and less like a tomboy or teenage slacker, i've had to make myself, i'm talking seriously FORCE myself, to break away from jeans, t-shirts and cardigans every weekend. i'm also trying to work in a few fun accessories. one thing i wasn't sure about but made myself wear yesterday was a short high-waisted skirt. first, i made myself wear it by waiting until just a minute before i had to leave to get dressed, that way i wouldn't have time to change clothes. second, i don't really go for shorter length high-waisted skirts because i generally think they look best on women with long, skinny legs and flat butts, neither of which i possess. but, i see other people with big round badunkadunks like me wearing them, so i figured i'd try, too.
cardigan: forever 21, faux fur collar: vintage/ebay, tank top: target, skirt: rugged wearhouse (i got that baby on clearance for $1), sweater tights: target, shoes: these.
still not sure if i like the outfit 100%, but the point is, i broke out of my typical "uniform" comfort zone. i wore this yesterday when i had a fun lunch and thrifting date with my girl fiancee/mistress downtown. i got a vintage sweater and two vintage blouses for $1 each, and as soon as i got back home, i was literally having to stop myself from kicking my butt for not getting another sweater, blouse and dress that i really liked. i mean, $1, what in the hell was i thinking?!?!? anyway, i came home with some treasures, and i'll show those tomorrow once the sun shows itself again so i can get pictures. oh, and speaking of pictures, remember how i told you recently that my camera would just act like a turd some days? well, it did that yesterday, that's why my outfit pictures look grainy.
what did you do this weekend?
