"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): meh

Friday, February 6, 2009


I'm feeling kind of blah today, but that usually doesn't last too long. Besides, I'm dressed like a nut today, so I should really perk up and play the part. I hate purple. Always have. From lavender to eggplant and everything in-between, I just don't like purple. I found this crazy soft velvet um, coat, cape, robe, thing at a thrift store. I decided to give it a whirl and if I hate it, I'll throw it on etsy. Sorry to anyone who loves purple (I'm lookin' at you, Prince), it's just not my cup of tea.

Velvet overcoat thingie - thrifted (again, no labels, no fabric tag, no identifiable anything to tell me when or where or why)
Dress - thrifted at Fake Target
Tights - ???
Boots - Casadei (ebay)
Yesterday was a much less crazy outfit. It was also a pretty boring day. On Wednesday I went on a cleaning bender at my house then went to the boy's house. It started out pretty innocently, I was just gonna quick wipe down his sink before I washed my hands. It turned into cleaning bender there too. If my arms don't rot off from cleaning that bathroom, I know I've got a superb immune system. His roommate sent me a lovely thank you, for my "heroic work in the bathroom." The boy's roommate is THE messiest gay man on earth. Really. Where's the stereotypical anal neatness?

 Dress/wrap thing - thrifted
Dress under it - thrifted at Fake Target (Converse)
Bird pin (holding wrap) - thrifted
Boots - Diba (DSW clearance)

On the upside, I started two sewing projects last night. I'll take some photos and give you progress updates. They're not too epic, but I'm excited about both of them. Project!

Oh, and P.S. for those of you who don't know, I'm a regular on wardrobe_remix and the lovely treesaw1973 told me the other day that I had very "quirky chic" style and it hit me... that is the perfect way to describe my style. I kind of incorporate things from all over and however I like, and it is always just, well, quirky. It's not too serious, it's sometimes whimsical, it's quirky chic! Yay, now I have a style (or a word to describe it!) It really made my day!

FutureLint - I love your style and I agree that quirky chic is perfect. I only wish I was younger so I could be more like you.

Love the second dress and boots.

Those white boots just kill me. So awesome.

Have a great weekend.
