Mature Lady

I don't even know why I am posting these pictures. I didn't like the outfit then and I especially didn't like it after I took these pictures. Lets just say that in my opinion I think I look a bit older and um... more mature than I am. I mean like where is my mini van and 3 kids? (Not that there is anything wrong with that) It was just one of those outfits that even while I was wearing it I felt something just wasn't right. Why didn't I just keep it locked up on my computer or delete all of the pictures? I don't know... Perhaps I feel compelled to share the horror of it all. Or maybe its that fact that I have a sense of humor about it and don't take myself too seriously.(Probably the former statement is more accurate, don't want to give myself too much credit)

Trouser Trauma

Ok so today's outfit involves delving into a realm that is new to me. Thrift store clothing. I mean I have a few things here and there that were purchased from a thrift store, but nothing that was different. I mean these are freaking old granny pants. I was hunting for some that actually fit me but to no avail. Everything was way too big. But my encouraging mother who happens to know how to sew ensured me that everything could be easily altered so as to fit me properly and how I liked it. To make a long story short I haven't had them altered yet (its been 3 weeks) and so they still look like granny pants. But they were loose and comfortable and I could easily study in them. So they were chosen for today.
And Oh boy I wish you could have seen the look on some of the peoples faces at the college library today. My parents live in a smaller and isolated town and lets just say that what I was wearing was drawing some stares from the youngsters on campus. Yup that's right kids, I am rocking the granny pants! Whatever, once they are altered they will be fabulous and will look like I purchased them from Topshop or Zara or some other trendy place. And the best part of all they only cost $4. So $4 + Free slave labor from my mom = $4 pants that look like ones someone my age should be wearing.

PS- I intentionally spared you all a view from behind which was nothing but classic mom butt!

Skirting the Issue

I basically don't really have any funny or cute things to say about the title of the blog. I am wearing a long skirt up high as a dress. Hence the title, wow sometimes I even surprise myself with just how lame I can be. Anyway I was really excited to wear my mom's real turquoise necklace. the color is amazing and the stones are all so heavy. Its definitely an interesting modern take on the string of pearls idea. Been really into trying to wear all the long skirt I have up high as a dress. I am sure its just a phase but I am diggin it for now.

So for some reason I just like the pictures of me smiling better. I see other people's editorial style photo shoots that they have for their blogs and I get it in my head that I should try to not smile and look like I am contemplating something deep and meaningful. I have found that in 99.9% of those picture I just turn out looking pissed off. Why is it that some people look so good not smiling and others... um not so much.

On another note be sure to notice my dogs butt and the cats ears in one of the pics. I swear its a zoo here, and I don't really want to be an animal trainer. Maybe I should consider it a compliment. Its like being in a Disney movie, Cinderella & Sleeping Beauty to name a few, where you can sing and always look perfect and the animals just come running out of the forest so they can help you in some way or just be your only friends. But then again, probably not.

Thrifted Shirt

I thrifted this shirt from a local store and I am quite happy with it. Its a lady's small but its still huge on me, which is exactly the look I was going for. I have been dabbling a bit more in the, not exactly what I was looking for but I could still make it work, zone. I will say it has made my thrift options much broader. I will hopefully be posting more finds to come soon. I also featured lots of borrowed things in this post. I love borrowing my moms purses while I am home. Its nice to not have to buy them and still get to enjoy using something new.
