Hot pink sweater, nails and silly band. Just the way I like it!
I’ve developed a preference for minimal design and simple and comfortable clothing (patterns don’t count). I wonder if that’s a result of getting older, or getting lazier.
Though we can’t forget about the Mongolian lamb fur. That’s a classic. The last time I wore this coat was a year ago, back when it was a long coat. So I decided to make it a short coat.
Coat, sweater: secondhand
Two things I haven’t worn in a while:
Fur coat from last winter and pink wool skirt from.. years ago? Yep.
I like a pink/neutral/black color combination. Or neutral/black/anything.
Recently got a new bag, I’m into the whole tube-shaped bag thing right now.
Coat, top, skirt: secondhand
It’s a new year and a new semester. With that I always resolve to be more proactive, at least in the beginning! Including a resolve to be more proactive on this blog. That mainly involves remembering to bring a camera, and remembering to take a picture of myself. Starting with last Tuesday:
With three animal prints. I suppose one could say that I was feeling… spotty? Ha ha!
I feel that my style has indeed changed quite a bit over the years, but if there’s one thing that’s remained the same, it’s more patterns = more satisfaction. Ahh.
Cardigan, shoes: secondhand
Button down, pants: H&M
Leopard print bodysuit: F21
And I wore THIS:
Yeah, I just can’t get shorts, tights, knee socks and boots out of my head. It’s just such an… easy and flattering look!
Although now that I’ve finally quit my retail job, I can get back to what’s important — shopping secondhand! Ho ho ho! This yellow sweater is now my favorite hand-me-down — my mom has apparently amassed a number of ’60s style cashmere sweaters and ’80s tights that she has only revealed to me recently. J-a-c-k-p-o-t-!
Everything secondhand, except H&M faux fur stole
I’m sure 20 years from now, when I’m looking through my closet, I’ll look at the shorts and say, “Man, remember that time when gym shorts were inexplicably trendy?!”
Yep. I feel like today would’ve been a good day to do some crunk or hip hop, but alas. I just walked around.
In other news, there was a period a few weeks ago where I bought four pairs of shoes in four days. These cow-print ankle boots are one of them.
Faux fur vest: Zara
Shorts, boots: secondhand
Tights: The Sock Man
Actually, when I was younger, I just watched the TV show “Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego" but ANYWAYS.
I never really thought about floor-length coats until a woman pointed one out to me in a thrift store and said, “I think it would look good on you!” And so I took her word for it!
And yep, still doin’ my fancy hat thing.
Coat, boots, bag: secondhand
Hat, shorts: UO
Shirt, fishnets: H&M
edit: Oh SNAP I just realized this outfit is essentially the same as the last note. I guess this is a phase!
I dunno. I bought this hat recently and have been wearing it incessantly:
Wide-brim hats: so hot right now. I’ve also been in a spaghetti western type mood, clothes wise.
Quite a few people were a fan of my tie-dye suede shorts. Wilson’s Leather, who knew you were so trendy?
Hat, knee-highs: UO
Coat, denim shirt, shorts, boots: secondhand
Lace tights: DKNY
I was Dilbert for the day before Halloween, but the next day, I decided “ehhh, why not, because I can”:
Good ‘ol Ziggy Stardust! I already had the hair from fashion:district (which was da bomb by the way, photos coming later). I also realized that I could just dress more or less the way I normally do, but with an added lightning bolt on my face. It was a bit too cold to do the full-on bodysuit, unfortunately.
I mean, it was easier than dressing up as Dilbert since I didn’t have to find no glasses and put no pipe cleaners in no ties.
Ziggy played guitaaaaaaar….
Faux fur stole, sequin jacket: H&M
Bodysuit: Black Milk
Belt, pants: secondhand
