lazy blogger therapy

Hi, my name is Arabelle, and I I wear tablecloths.

*chorus* Hi, Arabelle.



So I woke up this morning, was too lazy to find clothes, (my room is imploding with clothes) so I decided to wear whatever cocha-hiding garment I could see. This is said garment. I don't know why someone would make such a colorful tablecloth, but they did, and now I'm wearing it as a skirt.


I wore it down for most of the day (meaning: no cinching/draping/the answer to life is bucket) so it was boring and long, but after school I decided to be a ho and shorten it by cinching it. Cinch cinch cinch.

Also, I was talking to this underclassman in the computer lab today and she was like, "I LOVE DESIGNER LABELS like Chanel and Guess." She wanted me to buy her a Coach bag from goodwill (she offered me $0.10 to pay for it), and wanted to buy my prada skirt for $10. Also, she apparently loved fashion, but didn't like to dress up for school because it's stupid.

It made me, to put it politely, VERY AGGRAVATED. On the inside. I am not so much of a fashion asshole to burst out and begin ranting. That's lowering myself to the "Aberzombie vs. Urban Outfitters argument", of which will never have merit on this blog. And also, I am fully aware that bloggers have their own "style" and cannot be seen as better or worse than any other person for it.

Still, it made me feel really snobby to even think that she was a fashion idiot.

p.s You know my hammer pant post? It was for this contest. Please drop a comment there about my entry, I really, really, really would appreciate it thousandfold. Brownies for everyone if I win!

haha, i for a second there, i though you were going to go off on a rant on her. i was prepping myself to restrain you. but you didn't. good for you.

Malena said...

the table cloth as skirt is interesting...

janeaca said...

I'm counting on getting some brownies.

How can you even make a tablecloth look good? I'm jealous >.<

Shen-Shen said...

That table cloth/skirt is genius, I love it.

And oh how I agree. I'm a bit of a fashion "snob" too, only because it irritates the shit out of me when they think they're better than me because all they wear is Abercrombie.

Emily said...

it's funny how black tights can temper just about anything. love the originality!

kirstie said...

how do you make a tablecloth look AMAZING?

rofl she offered ten cents for a coach bag? oh.. kay.

Creole said...

I lol'd at "Guess". :3

Kelsie.Lynn said...

lauged so hard at guess...like really? i hate when people say abercrombie is designer like i want to strangle them!

Amelia said...

I love the way you've knotted the table cloth. It looks so freaking cool. What would that be--kitchen-ware-aholics anonymous? I think you were rightfully aggravated--it's ok to be annoyed with someone so completely ignorant.

Corie said...

your skirt is mad cool. im surprised you didn't cut that girl's head off or something of that nature. i would have poked her in the eyes with a no. 2 pencil :)

WendyB said...

Nice job with the tablecloth.

beccajanie said...

chanel and guess in the same sentence - interesting.

Great innovation with the tablecloth skirt - i'm impressed!

Zoƫ said...

computer lab? what class?

Arabelle said...

History, reilly's president project.

Anna Shapiro said...

That is a genius idea.

I understand what you mean about the girl
One of my friends was convinced that "Neiman Marcus" was a designer.

The Clothes Horse said...

Love the tablecloth as skirt. It's a great print, reminds me of the brocades Dolce & Gabbana did that weren't trashy at all (worn with paint splattered tees).
This reminds me of the fashion vs. style debate and girls like that make me afraid to say I'm into fashion...because really at the end of the day, she is ignorant. But so many people are...

instantvintage said...

Chanel and Guess...in the same sentence?

I'm shocked you didn't laugh in her face. I would have. Then again, I'm mean sometimes. LOL.

You rocked the hell out of that tablecloth though. Yay for refashioning.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

AMAZING.
And it looks so good too.

Juli said...

wow..i love your pictures. =)

Linds said...

Just wanted to let you know that I think you are very brave. I know this might sound silly, but experimenting with fashion on your blog is something I would never have been able to do when I was 15! And probably not even now that I am 26! I would have been far too worried about what others would think of me and to have learned not to care at such a young age... kudos. I actually look to you and Tavi for tips all the time and I'm trying to branch out.

Johanne said...

Only you can pull of the tablecloth look, haha..

emilie said...

i absolutely love your style and your blog. your photos are so cool!

hazel said...

haha. aberzombies.
people who are in love with abercrombie/hollister/coach/etc. aren't bad people...they just have no personal style what so ever.

unlike SOME PEOPLE who make amazing tablecloth skirts. gosh. you make the rest of us look like hoboes.

by the way. how do you edit your photos? they always have a ghostly film over them. photoshop?

J. said...

I'm impressed with your amazing table cloth use :) It drives me crazy when people just wear Abercrombie. Not gonna lie, though, went through a "zombie" phase and still have lots of stuff from it... I have to clean my closet! ;)

stephanie said...

i love your site!

Arabelle said...

hazel- i took these at around 730, so i had to jack up the brightness/contrast on photoshop. 90% of the time, i don't edit them other than cropping because i'm too lazy and my camera takes wicked pictures anyway.

:)thank you everyone!

City Chic Please said...

you know
i feel that way about a lot of people (the fashion idiot thing).
at least 80% of the girls at my school are like that.
i cannot WAIT to wear my karl lagerfeld shirt to school and see what the girl with the fake chanel bag says.

ANYWAYS, that tablecloth looks amazing, i must say...

Clara said...

Oh goodness, I know. We have tons of "Hollister hotties" at school, and they all carry Juicy Couture, Chanel, and Dooney & Burke purses. oh so deezynuh?! NO they just look bad because on their "off days", they'll wear their sweatpants with Pink on the butt, loads of make-up, and their purses. bleh.

Isabel said...

Damn, hot tablecloth! You are like the way cooler modern Scarlett O'Hara, no? Curtains, tablecloth...same difference.

P.S. -Without restraint, that girl does sound like a fashion idiot.

Arabelle said...

apparently, my friends are keeping tally of her idiotic comments. o_o starting today, it's at... 5?

hahahahaha. thanks for the comments everyone. :)

Emily Rose~Loves Cheerios said...

Hell thats a clever way to wear a tablecloth, and it doesn't look like a tablecloth, good work!

Shutter-Bug said...

That is the sweetest table cloth I've ever seen. AH. MAZING.

Hannah Cheeto said...

I wouldn't have guessed that was a tablecloth! And I people like that girl are sooooo.... ughh!

m.elizabeth said...

that is a very lovely tablecloth, it deserves a new name other than tablecloth :)

susie_bubble said...

I've done this with vinyl tablecloth...the easy-wipe-down type...not half as successful as your attempt I can assure you....

Soul Tanggg said...

that looks really really great!
how original!
