annabel 's thoughts:

another completely thrifted outfit? yes! i just bought the dress at thrift town during the 30% off sale! the wingtip oxfords are etienne aigner and i received them through a swap. a girl on livejournal thrifted a pair of oxfords that were two sizes two big and i happened to have a similar joan and david pair that i impulsively purchased at thrift town but were two sizes too small for me!

maybe it’s just me but i really felt like looking “frumpy” today. i absolutely love the length of this dress because it’s nice to have an alternative to the other dresses i own which tend to fit uncomfortably short on me (i’m 5’10" ugh). i posted this outfit on a livejournal community i’ve frequented for a year (what i wore today) and got responses about how it looks like something a grandma would wear and that i should make it shorter. hell no!

i’m a classics/comparative literature major. do you want to know what i do all day? i sit in front of ancient greek or latin texts and translate them. it sounds boring to most people but it’s the most fascinating thing i could be doing . it’s difficult to capture how amazing it feels to get through a tricky passage from plato’s protagoras and realize that you comprehend it. i feel that the more time i spend translating texts, the more i want to dress like the frumpy person i actually am.

but then again, rather than let it consume my sense of dressing, in reality this is just a facet of my style. to convince myself that i’m not bored with my outfits i like to change things up: for example, i could be wearing this today but tomorrow i could throw on a bright mini skirt with my rainbow no age shirt and vintage red flats.

well, i’ve realized that the people in wiwt and i don’t really see eye to eye with most things and there’s no point in posting outfits there. sure, i was a pretty popular poster for a while but it was only because i posted relatively “safe” outfits. ah well.

i ADORE this outfit. yeah, cool grandmas might wear it, but let's face it, grandmas are the most stylish people in the world.

i think it's grandma-esque but in a very chic sort of way. and i have almost those exact shoes, i love them even though they make my feet look 23204983049328402293840398x bigger.
