Not Ivy League Material

  It has been less than two weeks, and my blog has already taught me some things: a) I really need to get to work shortening all of my sleeves because I look like a ragamuffin, and b) I need to shoot against a lighter background because even after color correction, I'm glowing like an orange-tinted angel.

  Since it has been very foggy and damp, I have been wearing my long skirts. The skirt is from Ozz On Japan, a brand of Japanese punk and goth clothing. I love that it has good-sized pockets in the back and a cargo pocket on the side. (I know, pockets in ladyclothing, right?) The fabric is stretchy and there is lacing up the sides to give me a snugger or looser fit, depending on whether I have eaten an entire roast chicken.

  The scarf is fleece and has a handy loop underneath so it wraps securely around your neck.

  I have a binder clip holding my shirt together. I think it was meant to be a drape-y overlayer, but I was trying to emulate the look of Shihar's etsy shop, which sells beautiful flowing lady warrior outfits. Is this the “pop of color” I keep hearing about? Maybe I can start a new trend.

  These are some of the only standard-width shoes I've found that don't crush my toes. Unfortunately they are like a vise on my instep. The leather shop stretches them, but they don't take my “Stretch the almighty heck out of them. I don't care if they look funny.” as seriously as I'd like, so I've taken matters -and a hammer- into my own hands.

  It's research papers and finals for me the next few weeks, so posts may be sporadic. I hope your week is going well!

  1. I think you could start a new style trend with the binder clip as a fastening agent! I love this look and if I were younger that is exactly what I would wear.
