Take Your Pick

May 13th, 2010 by Selise

Well. This outfit has elicited a wide array of comments from around the office. There were so many that I had to write them down. Check it out, “You look _____ today”:

1. French
2. Irish
3. Scottish
4. Country
5. Punk
6. English
7. Confused
8. Like something out of Oliver Twist
9. Like Bon Scott/an AC/DC fan
10. Where is your MG?

I got inspiration for this outfit when I was dressing for the challenge yesterday. I took this vest off a hanger and placed it over this shirt to make more room. Then looking at it I realised that I really liked them together. The blue of the shirt with the grey of the vest feels very much like a school uniform. While I strongly disliked wearing a uniform at school, the novelty of it now is appealing. The rest of the outfit came tumbling after. The vest lead to the hat which made me think of the skirt and then the tights with these shoes. Yesterday’s pirate ship broach to top it all off and I was good to go.

I must say I am incredibly comfortable today. This style of dress, with the layering is definitely my favourite. Which is one of the reasons that I love Autumn and Winter so much. The added extras that you get to include, it all makes me so happy.

I’m loving the fat, messy, side plaits that are everywhere at the moment. Unfortunately my hair isn’t quite long enough at the moment so I’ve settled for a side pony which I am equally happy with. I’ve been contemplating getting a hair cut for the last month or so. Having it back like this though makes me realise that it’s not really all that long. At least not when it’s dry…

    Pretty outfit. Love those tights. I have a similar pair.

    Haha, you do not look punk, although Scottish, I can see that comparison.

    I wore a uniform in high school too, and I hated it, but now I miss it. Weird how it works out that way.
