My friend Pilalex asked me today “Is that the skirt you hike up to your boobs?”

Yes. Yes it is.

I could have it tailored, sure, but this works fine, and I didn’t hate the length last winter when paired with boots. I just think it makes me look stumpy without them.

I don’t know. I thought this was a nice outfit. I love the colors and I think the accessories were really well matched. But it felt like a great outfit that someone else would wear and not so much something I would wear. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t one of those things where I was uncomfortable all day or anything. I just didn’t love it. Something about it seemed really…tame I guess.

I thrifted this blouse last Friday on my lunch break for two bucks. I mostly liked the pattern and though it was a good shape for my denim leggings. But I thought I’d go ahead and try it with a skirt.

I love this little spider ring.

It’s just the right cross between creepy and pretty for me.

And these heels are just the right height to be comfy all day.

I really like your top today. No surprise there though, since it looks like something I would wear. What shop did you find it in? (just seeing if there are any shops I need to add to my rotation, although I am supposed to be cutting back on the shopping...)

The one on Skillman like right across from the Super Target. It is called "Thrift Shop" or "Thrift Store" I can't remember. By the laundry mat. I dont have great luck there most times but it's close and a good shopping fix even if I don't find something.

Sometimes a nice shopping fix w/o purchase is the best.

(In the same shopping strip as Fiesta or Carnival or whichever grocery store that is? If so, I've been in there. Once.)

Fab bracelet and cool ring!

Sal said...

It does seem a bit tame for you, lady ... but those accessories definitely punch it up.

I think I know what you mean about outfits like that. You look hot, but it's office-y. I celebrate the notion that we can dress non-office-y while still wearing office-appropriate attire. Anytime I realize that I'm wearing something that feels office-y, I can't wait to get home so that I can either take it off, or accessorize it to the point of being not very office-y anymore. Not that there is anything wrong with office-y clothes. Just that it makes me feel kinda "meh." Am I making any sense here? Or did I just use my made-up "office-y" adjective too many times?

Work With What You've Got said...

Tina, yep, that's the one.

Stephanie, lol. I loved it and you made perfect sense. XOXO
