So this past week I somehow found myself super sucked into Once Upon A Time since the entire first season is on Netflix. There are two characters, Snow & Red, whose non-magical counterparts Mary Margaret and Ruby are pretty awesome. They’re on the top list of favorites because they’re both pretty bad ass characters who can take care of themselves. I got dressed in this outfit and felt a lot like Mary Margaret, who dresses in super twee-tastic cute clothing, but there was too much red in my ensemble to deny.
This outfit belongs to the love child of Mary Margaret and Ruby, once they realize that boys are so lame and not the way to go.
Cape, Shirt & Vest: Thrifted | Hat & Jeans: Gifts | Flower: H&M | Bag: AlphabetBags.com | Shoes: B.A.I.T
Oh and in honor of Kels’ post yesterday, yes, these are the jeggings she so hardcore mocked back in the day. I’ve mentioned it before, but they were a gift from a woman I tutored in English. They are also the “jeans” I mentioned needed replacing because of a hole on the tuckus region. Fortunately the shirt covered the hole and also skinny jeans are the way to go.
So anyone else a fan of the show? Or is this post just the most randomly nonsense thing ever? It’s not. I promise. I’ve written way more nonsensical posts than this one. Also, if you do watch the show, I’ve only watched season one. I haven’t seen anything of season two so no spoilers in the comments or I’ll consider you the biggest meanie ever! Ant hat, guys, would be like the most tragic thing ever.
I couldn’t decide what to wear this morning (not actually the most typical quandary I find myself in, considering I usually plan my outfit as I fall asleep the night before), so I dug deep into the back of my closet and pulled this baby out.
Sweater & Dress: H&M, Scarf: Vintage, Boots: ..I forgot…, Tights: Target, Bag: Modcloth.com
This dress always looks so frumpy and ugly on the hanger, as if it would be too long or awkward. I always forget that I like wearing it, and an office job is the perfect place for it! I did spend the whole day feeling super toned down, but such is life. I can’t always be ridiculously dressed, I suppose.
Also? Can I just say about the above pose? I have a perpetual fear of being photographed from the side angle. I’m not the thinnest girl (I’m healthy, though, and I love my body), and I have a stomach condition that causes almost constant tummy bloat. So I live in fear of sideways shots and appearing pregnant. But this dress is fluffy and full enough that I could totally pull off a sideways shot! Because now you’ll never know if it’s just windy (which it was) or what!
I’ll admit, though, it does help that I get to bring my favorite ridiculous “business briefcase” with me, though!
How about our readers (we know you’re out there!)? Do any of you have those easy-peasy pieces hiding in the back of your closet? How do you doll up a piece that’s on the bland side?
