I am absolutely completely in love with this look, I wish I could dress like this everyday and not get bored. If I didn’t have a blog and wouldn’t feel compelled to change it up every once in a while, I probably would wear an outfit like this one every day. Cute, retro, girly, but with a bit of street cred added by the masculine shoes and The Beatles t-shirt. This just feels so totally me. When you’re a fickle fashion fan like me, you can sometimes feel like you’re forever searching for that ONE look. I feel like I’ve found it for now in the hair and make up department (eyeliner + subtly colored lips and messy Alexa style medium length hair), but clotheswise I can’t seem to settle as easy. Right now my inspiration is definitely retro, but I can’t seem to settle on a decade. All I know is that the eighties don’t work for me, haha. This is sort of my attempt to merge my favorite styles into something that feels quite current, like something Alexa Chung would wear: longer hemline (fifties), brogues + a bow headband (sixties) and a band T (nineties). The bag seems sort of random when I look back at this look, this outfit would’ve looked better with a dark brown or black bag, but I would be crazy if I’d go and retake this just because the bag isn’t perfect. I do love this Alexa bag knockoff though, it’s part of the new S/S 2011 H&M collection. I just couldn’t resist, and at 19.95, why try?
Anyway, I’m in love with this look.
About my life: I was supposed to be going to a goodbye party for some friends that are leaving to study abroad next semester, but I missed out because of the crazy snowfall here. I’m all kinds of frustrated :( at least I was looking good. Lesigh.
