I find it the most difficult to get dressed when I have no idea what I am getting dressed for. You know, the casual “let’s get together” type plans, where you might end up sitting at home or you might go dancing. More often than not, I default to denim leggings, a plain shirt and all the jewelry I can get on.
It works for me. I almost never end up feeling under or over dressed with this combination.
In this instance we ended up grabbing a quick bite and then everyone just came back to ours for drinks and conversation.
This bag is a pretty good size for going out…
I can get my Blackberry, a couple glosses, gum, keys, ID, CC and cash in there no problem. I will say that I have tiny hands and I have a hard time getting my hand in the bow the way it is advertised on the Etsy site. It can be done, but I doubt anyone with hands larger than mine could do it. I made the bag charm myself. I have always loved a bag charm. I think they are too young for me and slightly tacky. But I don’t care, and I had fun making this one, which can be transferred from bag to bag pretty easily.
These are Doc Martens and so comfy. I love them because they have a heel, but are comfortable enough to wear to places you might end up standing, like dancing or to see a band play.
Also, they remind me of a character in NANA, which is my second all time favorite Manga. (Paradise Kiss is my favorite).
Nana O wears Vivienne Westwood’s Rocking Horse shoes. They have a cut out in the back of the platform, which is a little more extreme, but they have sort of the same feeling to me because of the detailing on the Docs heel.
I finished with my signature bird necklace and my new skull necklace, which I have worn several days in a row!
And these earrings, which used to be a part of a MASSIVE, too big for even me pair at Forever XXI. I liked the parts, so I’ve made 2 pairs of earrings, one large and one small with them.
