Swing by my blog!
These photos were featured in Spilled Milk Magazine and I was asked to write a little bit about the outfit. This is what I came up with:
ABOUT THE SWEATER
I actually bought the sweater as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, Ronnie. I had wrapped it and everything. Usually I buy all my holiday gifts at the last minute, but this year I had planned ahead, and was ridiculously proud of it. Then, one morning – it was insanely cold and I happened to suffer from a severe case of nothing-to-wear – well, I’ll just admit it: I tore open Ronnie’s present and put it on. When I came home later that day, he complimented me on my cute sweater, and I just smiled and said thank you. Needless to say, I ended up giving him a much nicer stack of gifts than I originally planned, out of pure guilt. But in my defence – that sweater is now my favorite!
ABOUT THE GLASSES
I was so excited about getting a new pair of glasses. Especially since I had worn my old ones every day for ten years. When I found these, I didn’t know what to think. I simply adored the way they framed my face, and they were by far the nicest glasses in the whole optician’s boutique – but seriously, the denim?! Why, why, whyyy would you put denim on a pair of spectacles? When I called my boyfriend and told him I was thinking of going for a pair of jeans-clad glasses, he laughed for five minutes straight. But when he saw them, he couldn’t do anything but agree with me. So now I wear my denim spectacles all the time, and I’m in love! They make being almost blind seem fashionable. Kind of.
