Blue Funk

  Two sunny days in a row, here. It's like Christmas! ...except warm instead of presents.

  I let out a little squeak of delight when I pulled this skirt from the thrift shop rack. My second thought of course was, "I can never wear this to visit Mom."

  This thing has seven -count 'em- seven pockets. It's got a zig zaggy asymmetrical hem, inside-out patches, random straps, bits of it are sewn to other bits... it is an Aya skirt.

  I can't say I'm crazy about the dirt-streaked denim color, though. Remember that trend of jeans that looked like you'd been camping in them for two weeks, then come home and got run over by a car? Never liked those. I'm thinking candidate for an overdye job. Your thoughts?

  Can you believe that big shirt used to be four inches bigger around? I'm pretty sure the size M tag in here is just for laughs.  I took it in so it wouldn't fall completely over my shoulders onto the floor every time I tried to wear it. The tag also says "FOREVER 21 JAPAN RETAIL." I love cool tags in thrifted clothing.

  Upon review, I probably should not have paired a shapeless slouchy skirt with a shapeless slouchy shirt, because while I have decent posture, I sure look like I am slouching in these photos. It was a sunny day though, which means I am not responsible for my fashion choices.

  1. I think you look gorgeous and relaxed in this outfit and certainly not slouchy at all.
