So . . .
It's been freezing lately. Which for us Californians means in the 60 degree range. But it's April, darn it! So I'm going to wear skirts and dresses and rompers even if I am running around like a mad person the whole time trying to keep my blood circulating!
When I bought these shoes, I had the following conversation via text with Sweets (my boyfriend):
Me: You're going to break up with me when you see the shoes I just got.
Sweets: Are they heels?
Me: No. They're closer to...loafers...if anything...
Sweets: Why won't I like them?
Me: Michael Jackson. That's all I'll say.
Sweets: Sparkle shoes?
Sweets: Girls wear some weird crap.
Well-said, Sweets. Well-said.
Bought: Faux Leather Jacket @ Forever 21 a couple years ago (rolled-up sleeves, my doing)
Price: I have no idea
Bought: Chewie & Han novelty tee @ Red Bubble
Price: $21.73 plus shipping
Bought: Purple pencil skirt @ Goodwill
Bought: Belt @ H&M
Bought: Michael Jackson loafers @ Goodwill
One of the best parts about the early 90's prints coming back in style is that I still have some leftovers from the first go-round that I can re-use.
This gingham bow is from elementary school when my mom made Josie and I matching gingham outfits for a church fashion show (I know that seems like an oxymoron, but...)
This purple sweater, which I just barely saved from being donated today is from Jr. High (when I would wear it with matching purple pants and lavender clogs. We don't need to talk about that. Ever.)
I'm a pretty big chicken when it comes to mixing prints. But since I've been re-watching old Project Runway episodes, I've been encouraged by Mondo to be a bit braver.
This is only the beginning. We'll start small and eventually work our way up to more eye-assaulting combinations of prints.
