Thank you everyone for for kind and thoughtful comments in the previous post. All I can say is to embrace the body you’re in.
Onto the next thing – I’ve been re-imagining many of my old outfits. I actually went through my old archives and dug out outfits that I really liked, and pulled the bits and pieces that I enjoyed the best to recreate the outfit in a new way. So you’ll be seeing these remix posts here and there. After blogging for almost 6 years, I’m intrigued to finally remix myself. Especially since I love repeating outfits that go really well together. It’s also interesting to see what I have since departed with or have kept – I am not a wasteful buyer of clothes anymore, so I like that I’ve kept lots of my favorite things and can still wear them years later. Not to mention that my camera situation back in my early blogging days was pretty awful so I get to recreate some terrible picture situations.
The first remix is with this polka dot skirt and cotton skirt combination. I haven’t gotten around to wearing that skirt too much – mostly because it always seems to be just too damn windy in San Francisco. Luckily I’m the kind of girl that wears shorts under all dresses and skirts (these are my favorite). So I really liked this outfit as a before, I actually STILL have both the same shoes and belt too. But thought it would be more fun to add some different elements.
Top: vintage. Skirt: The Gap, a few years ago. Tights: Henry Holland for Pretty Polly (black pair). Shoes: Rachel Comey from Wasteland.
I now just wish I had this shirt in every single colorway possible.
