dammit, it's the fig tree that screwed me over

Hmmmm. So I'm guilty of being a one-trick pony for the past week. White t-shirts are both the greatest thing to happen to me and the worst. I cannot make an outfit without one! My heathered gray one's also being well worn. I think looking at ebay auctions for crazy florals has made me want to crawl into all black or all white.

My outfits as of recently are more than enough proof of my style rut.




I'm actually exhausting my options already for my closet, but I think it's a double edged sword considering. Making this blog is one of the best things that has ever happened to me identity wise; I'm learning what pieces I can't live without.

Speaking of living without....I need to get rid of pretty much all of my shoes, it's sad but I've got about 40 and only wear about 10. 6 of them aren't my size, either. Eh. For those sellers: should I list on etsy or ebay? Whats the difference and what made you choose one over the other?

So right after I won that jumper I find another amazing jumper! It's like the polar opposite, quite amusing. Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to pull this off? Or am I off my rocker?



My parents are lucky I haven't memorized their credit card PINs....yet.

I love how glamorously 80's that look is!

bewkworm said...

first, yes- 80's hooker. ask your twin, she'll agree. also, the triumphent return of reggie bob! bring him in to torrow, i want me some dino-lisous fun. we still have to go traveling with him, a la the amelie knome. alos, i think i like that jumper better then the one you bought. it looks like it's made out of curtains, but in a scarlett o'hara way, not a homeless way.

LOOOVE the outfit so much, that skirt is made of God.
Those shoes are fabulous.
You are a constant source of inspiration for me.
And that romper is nice, but I like the one you won already more... the back is so lovely and such.

Amelia said...

I love the skirt in the second outfit--the buttons are awesome. I'd like the first outfit, but that skirt really creeps me out. I think you could definitely pull off that floral romper!

jo said...

that floral jumper is really cool! love the floral print (:

Tinky Minky said...

very pretty dress! :-)

emily said...

the jumper will be great on you i think.


never memorise your parent's credit card PINs!!

speaking from experience it leads to a life of guilt and regret

bewkworm is totally right about the scarlett o'hara thing, you should buy it!

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Ah yes, I saw your TV post.

I really have to agree on the white tshirt thing, although I dont have nearly enough of them

I quite like that romper on ebay, and I dont think you can have enough rompers.

New post, check it out.

minion: yeah well it's not like you'd be able to borrow my clothes anyway, WORSHIPPER.

mary: so if you're ever in the nyc area you should seriously email me and we can wear skirts made of god together and prance around like the awesome people we are.

amelia: the skirt is much much cooler on than on the floor. xD don't be afraid!

emily: o_o do i want to know?

thanks for the comments ladies.

bewkworm said...

if you call me worshipper one more time, you will never get cookies again. as it is, i'm going to kill zoe for tricking me. oh, she is soooo dead.

Belle said...

but face it! you were so gullible, you kind of deserve it.

Nay'Chelle said...

The Betsey Johnson look is pretty sweet. I love the skirt.

The Clothes Horse said...

You look super cute. White shirts are classic you can never wear them too often.

Miss V. said...

Hehe I love white t shirts too- especially when I run into a style block. I love the florals, I can never pull them off but they look great on you. I love the shoes in the second outfit too... haha my dad got me my own credit card, I think he's regretting his stupidity already.

theres a fine line between being in a style rut and having a trademark look.
why not wear your white tee 24/7 if it makes you happy? as long as you mix it up!

love this post..my oh my, the florals!

JuliAM said...

i just noticed that tfs membership is under your 'to find' list: they currently have a waitlist for us non-industry-ers to join up. it only took like a week for my invite to come through. or i could see if i could send you an invite, let me know. ps. love your blog, want to link up?!

capturedlife said...

its so 80s! i love the floralprinted dress

Neon said...

Ah I hate it when that happens, I have a grey AA v-neck that I wear all the time, I love it. But I hate seeing myself repeatedly wear it.
But I still love each of the outfits in your post =]

Belle said...

discotheque: thats a good point! i didn't think of it that way....wow i guess i'm developing a look. fun stuff.

juliam: i'd love to trade links (done!) and i'd love the invite too. you would make me year/life/universe.

thank you ladies. :)

discothequechic said...

yep, i think it's certainly a nice way of thinking of it. or maybe its just an excuse!

oh and about giles deacon, he's onlu being sarcastic, he's neither a millionaire or billionaire. and this is why we love him!..
