Pinstripe Jumper

  I'm indoors studying for finals this week, so my outfits will continue to be casual for the next few posts.
Pinstripe dress: Gap (thrifted)
Purple shirt: Express (thrifted)
Belt: Kimchi Blue (thrifted)
Boots: ALDO (thrifted)
Necklace: Japan
  This thrifted pinstripe dress is really boxy on me. I need to take in all of the darts, but I also hate sewing, so I added a belt, layered up, and tried making the dress a jumper, instead. I'm loathe to give up the handy pockets!

  Now that I think of it, I should have layered the jumper over my jodhpurs to make this outfit more fun to say. And somehow added juniper. I need all the amusement I can get.
  ... help! I'm so bored, guys! The papers I'm reading for this class are so stuffed with technical jargon that I want to cry.

  Someone named a table "Comparison between Femora and Predicted Loading Angle from Static Free-body Analyses of Single Leg Stance and the Magnitude-weighted Average Load Direction from Density-based Load Estimation." I wanna predict loading angle of my bootheels after I finish my last final and blow this popsicle stand.

  If you have an interesting story or tidbit, please share. I will be forever grateful. :D


  1. Q: Why do seagulls fly over the sea?
    A: Because if they flew over the bay, they'd be bagels.

    Good luck!

  2. Three professors notice that there's a wastebasket fire in the dean's office.
    The physicist says, "I know what to do! We must cool down the materials until their temperature is lower than the ignition temperature. Then the fire will go out."
    The chemist says, "No! No! I know what to do! We must cut off the supply of oxygen. Then the fire will go out due to lack of one of the reactants."
    While the physicist and chemist debate which course to take, they notice the statistician running around the room starting other fires. They both scream, "What are you doing?"
    To which the statistician replies, "Trying to get an adequate sample size."

  3. The dress looks fine pulled in with a belt, it's got a cute pinafore vibe, so that seems to fit the studying theme nicely! Eek, the title of that table had me cross-eyed - whaaaaaat? There's a reason I was an arts/humanities student, back in the day!
    Interesting tidbit; read about the "Femilift" here - - and then weep for humankind... You're welcome. xxxx

  4. Just the title of that paper made me feel stabby!!!
    I thin k the dress is cute as a jumper!!

  5. My husband's company is international so often people are located all over the world working at all different hours of the day. Sometimes that means they can be on a conference call very late at night depending on where they are located.

    This past week while he was on a call they suddenly heard a strange sound. Heavy breathing followed by a muffled nasal sound. It grew louder until they couldn't hear each other.

    One of the guys in India had fallen asleep and was snoring! They couldn't even wake him up so they had to mute the guy.

    That's all I've got : )

    That and this video... enjoy!

    oh and love those killer boots!


  6. I'm obligated by The Blogger Code to say "Cute outfit!" but my real reason for commenting here is different. Without trying, I've been reading your recent comments on multiple other blogs and they compel me to say, "You are such a nice person!" You always make an effort to be nice; you always say interesting and smart things; and you're a joy to be friends with. The blogosphere is so much brighter with you in it.

    1. Aww, thank you so much Ally! I feel the same way every time you comment on my blog. You always make my day. (:

  7. What Ally said. Well, definitely.

    I'm late to the title, but I'm still struggling past the second word, so I wouldn't have been much help.

    I can never get rid of any dress or skirt with pockets. Weird.
