Shirt and Cardigan: Thrifted (Target) — Skirt: ASOS — Shoes: Thrifted (Born) — Thigh-highs: Sock Dreams (Extraordinarily Longer Striped Thigh Highs in Steel/Light Blue) — Earrings: B&A Estate Jewelry


The beginnings of this outfit were discards from the weekend–before deciding on the tunic and leggings from yesterday’s post, I spent a long, indecisive time trying things on for the very important task of leaving the house to go grocery shopping.


However, a few of these pieces ended up together in the meantime, which explains how I was so coordinated first thing on a Monday morning.


I don’t usually have the wherewithal to come up with something like this right after I wake up anymore.


(You might have noticed the simpler outfits, and I appreciate your not saying anything negative about it. You have wonderful manners!)


Anyway, the tiny tie worked out and we haven’t seen it in ages, so sometimes initial failure leads to later success. A life lesson for us all, especially in regard to tiny ties.

Dress: Field Day — Camisole: Gap Outlet — Shoes: eBay (Eleanor Grosch Keds) — Earrings: Solano Stroll


I think I have more photos here than there are pieces to this outfit.


Mmyep, six is definitely bigger than four. I took AP Calculus in high school, can you tell?


You know, I wanted to continue studying calculus independently in college, but man, those textbooks were expensive. As a result, I haven’t Done a Math in probably ten years! I mean, I do math (poorly), but I haven’t sat down to think about fun math in a long, long time.


One thing I really miss is my graphing calculator. Shout-out to Texas Instruments! And shout-out to whoever figured out how to put games on there.


Block Dude was vital to my life senior year.

Dress: Thrifted (no label) — Sandals: 6pm.com (Dansko) — Socks: Sock Dreams (Bobby Socklings in Moss) — Belt: Target — Necklace: Fuzppa — Earrings: Leah Staley


I bet I’ve worn a near-identical version of this outfit on the blog before, considering most of the pieces have been with me for some time, but I’m not about to go look.


Plausible deniability is the name of the game, folks.


It’s not that surprising, anyway. I’ve had most of the pieces in this outfit for a long time, relatively-speaking. The dress has been with me for over two years!


And okay, two-plus years is not that long a time to have a garment (my dad has bragged about shirts he owned for twenty years or more), but it’s longish when you consider the lifespan of this blog, and my interest in clothing in general. It’s practically an old-timer! Let’s hope it doesn’t get gunned down three days before retirement.

Dress: Thrifted (Laura Ashley) — Button-front: Thrifted (Faded Glory) — Sandals: Gift (Clarks) — Earrings: Hand-me-down — Bangle: Thrifted


If I’m going to be honest here (and when am I not? also, you’ve got something in your teeth), I like the offhand mirror pic of this outfit I took with my phone for Instagram better than any of the actual outfit photos.


It’s almost like a body shouldn’t even bother with a nice camera and natural light, for pete’s sake.


Not that I think my photography in whatever form is any great shakes; in fact, it seems like I need a refresher course in posing for the timer since lately I’m dissatisfied with the results more often than not.


Maybe I should take one of those, uhh, “TyTyTips” from this cycle of America’s Next Top Model and practice my owl neck?

Dress: eBay (Marimekko) — Shoes: Thrifted (Born) — Belt: Thrifted — Earrings: Angela Grace Jewelry — Footie socks: Sock Dreams (Tabbisocks Heather Footies)


The neckline of this dress makes it difficult in certain situations–it doesn’t really work with necklaces and I have to be really careful not to lean over too far–but it’s fun and interesting enough that I don’t really care.


Who needs necklaces or leaning over, anyhow?


Speaking of difficult: I really like the clean lines and stitching of this belt, but it’s a little too small and it’s time to admit that we should part ways. It’s nobody’s fault; sometimes these things just don’t work out. Anyway, belt, I hope we can stay friends, and maybe get some coffee sometime.

Kurta: Thrifted (Fabindia) — Skirt: Blacklist Vintage (Lilly Sports) — Sandals: Gift (Clarks) — Bangle: Thrifted — Earrings: Target


I forgot (read: was too lazy) to put away my jewelry supplies yesterday, so my photo area is a leetle beet messy.


I took a long break from making lace jewelry, but I’m back, sort of! I need to renew some listings and get back in the game, but first I’m doing up a few items that I’ve owed friends for, um, an embarrassing length of time.


My shop’s been open for eleven months and I’ve made roughly five and a half sales, but hey! I like being creative and learning how to get better at working out designs people will like.


I just wish I had more hours in the day so I could go to work, make jewelry, and also get even one other thing done. Maybe I just have too many hobbies.
