open mouth, blah blah blah shovel in face


Oh shiiiiii- an outfit post? Yes. An outfit post, albeit a very.... questionable outfit. If you don't appreciate obnoxious tights & kid store vest from the dark past we know as the 90's, that is. I think I got it for $2 at the local Children's Place? It sticks to my hair but since the little sheep are so cute it's forgivable. The skirt is handsewn by my mother and I'm sure if I had one in every color I would never buy a skirt again. I don't like matching outfits so I made the tights a kick in the eyes.


I wanted to dress up as an obnoxious sheep herder flower loving girl who sits in libraries and listens to her mp3 player at minimum volume. Did it work?

Lately I've been getting more comments in real life about my outfits. As the year flies by (third semester report cards today, super asian parents + merit roll = KDJFSHFDSF) people ask me more and more about my outfits, and I don't mind that. I actually like negative comments in real life because they usually come from the most ghetto people in my city and think tube tops should be the uniform for 15 year old girls everywhere. This means I do not appeal to ghetto perverts. This means my target audience (read: my mirror and you lot) is satisfied with my appearance.

Some of the weirder comments:
  • "You dress like a gay actor. A really well dressed gay actor." [I can forgive you, Nate, for you have sexy glasses.]
  • "Why do you have condoms on your legs?" [Ah, Vinnie.]
  • "It's like the easter bunny made a pact with satan and made you."
What did you wear today? What are the weirdest comments you've recieved for an outfit?

I like the shape of your skirt teamed with the belt makes perfection. I don't get alot of weird comments and no one really comes up to me at school asking "Wtf are you wearing!?" I guess its just because no one cares at my school. But I do get comments on the heels I wear.

Belle said...

that's probably because you wear wicked awesome heels. people in my school care about their appearances and for the most part, they're well dressed. i don't know why they're still surprised at my outfits. :P

Amelia said...

I love it! The skirt is really awesome--it's the perfect length. The tights kind of scare me, though. My outfit today is not worthy of being written down. I don't get any really weird comments on outfits. Mostly people just ask if I'm going anywhere special when I wear a skirt or a dress.

Belle said...

Thanks Amelia! And yes, that was the point of the tights,I'm glad they did their job.

Doesn't that irk you when people ask if you're going anywhere special? I tend to ignore those kinds of comments the most..

Stephanie said...

That outfit is INSANE! I love it. The weirdest comment I've probably gotten is: "Your pants make you look like a Japanese farmer" (the hammer pants).

Fabi said...

jessa said...

i like the vest, it makes me smile.

bewkworm said...

i think th ierdest comment i ever got was from you, hen you called me a japenese robot, even though i was neither japan-influenced or robot-esque.

Belle said...

that was because a lovely lady on my blog was called a Japanese robot and i like to shamelessly steal cool phrases.

Ana said...

Haha I like this outfit.
A guy told me I dressed like a hooker even though I cover up the most out of my True Religion jean short and lowcut tank top wearing peers.
A girl also asked "if you die can I have all your clothes?"

ellie said...

I love anything floral right now so I'm really into your shirt and your belt I have something similar form H & M. You are really good at putting outfits together!

Yea, I hate it too when people ask me if I'm going anywhere special & I'll be like, no. & they'll stare at me. Well, the shape of the skirt is awesome!

Once I wore a yellow dress with green buttons and lots of green details with opaque green tights, which was, in my opinion, not really my definition of weird. But soembody told me I looked like a SALAD (yellow and green, come on), and there. Haha. But is it weird that I wasn't the least bit insulted? :D
