New season's about to be here, figured a change in scenery on this here blog should come along with it. Susan Miller did say this month is all about transformations....I think. I'm actually too punk-ass to reread my horoscope for the month since I've been so anxious lately aha ha, ha. Anyway, I've actually been wearing this outfit repeatedly throughout the week since it's so effortless and perfect for the weather. I love this skirt so much! I got several questions about where I got it from on Instagram so I thought I'd grab a quick outfit post for y'all so you can see it properly.
I'm wearing: Bonlook Glasses*, Only Child London Necklace*, Choies White Long Sleeves Button Up*, Choies Blue Single-Breasted High Waist Denim Pencil Skirt*, Nanette Lepore Seduction Satchel*, ASOS Portobello Shoes.
Isn't this cropped shot so weird? I look so stilted, like a doll. I was just walking mid-shot, but it feels very artificial and anxious, like I'm in a Hitchcock movie. I'm into it and the sloppy details you can see shine through regarding the skirt. I love this skirt, mostly because it's just a joke -- referencing all those girls who wrap their sweaters around their hips as they go along with their day. I have a history of wearing actual sweaters as skirts -- you may come across old blog photos on this exact event if you go far back enough (I'm thinking 2008-2009 era? Before I dyed my hair, even!). It just seems a progression in my inside joke with myself, really. It's a snap-off skirt so I feel like a stripper just yanking it off at the end of the day. Undressing with a flourish, it's the only way to go. If dressing and undressing are intimate, even erotic acts at times, they can also just be very funny. I like when it happens to be both.
P.S I have a story in the September issue of Teen VOGUE. I'm super excited about it & thrilled to have been assigned to write about hair dye....since I am somewhat of an expert at home dye it at this point. Please check it out!
