Come on little gamma ray


So, this was the outfit that I wore on Saturday and tried to get a picture of but couldn't. Yes, I'm lame and put it on again for photo-taking purposes. But really, you can't own Batman. Today's look, featured below is what I affectionately call "lazy bum". Knit sweater, sweatpants and moccasins. You heard it here first. Word.

I was lucky enough to go to Value Village on the weekend (first time thrift shopping in over a month!) and I found this 1980s high-waisted skirt and granny-victorian ankle boots.

There was a pretty decent selection of designer stuff there; a Burberry wool skirt and Saks Fifth Avenue blazer. But both were pretty 'matronly' looking, so I obviously didn't buy either. There was a really pretty necklace and belt that I'm regretting not buying, but I really couldn't afford them.

Oh, and more news. I am completely obsessed with this video for Beck's "Gamma Ray" starring Chloe Sevigny. It's a trip, if you know what I mean. Discotheque Confusion posted it first and I seriously cannot stop watching it.

Isabel, you are a god. Those granny ankle boots are a total win, and your sweater is prettay prettay shveet. I want to steal it from you, so just beware because I will be coming in my batmobile at approximately 12 o clock tonight.

Krystal said...

your style is super adorable, i wish i could pull that sweater off, its to die for. and love the aa skirt too. im adding you to my links, with your approval of course xx

Lydia said...

When I gave away my too-short Batman tee, a little voice said you shouldn't give that to VV. Sadly, my "reason" won the arguement.

Further reason for me to mourn the fact I could have a batman tee to tuck into all my skirts? Your adorable outfit.

Mary said...

You are so stunning and well dressed.
We need to go thrifting sometime <3

Shannon said...

God I love Beck. If the world listened to more Beck, we'd fill that hole in the Ozone layer with awesome.

The video itself reminds me of Rocky Horror.

Rhiannon said...

Everything about these two outfits is so cute. I love the look of high waisted skirts, and the batman skirt seals the deal for me. And that sweater is simple but cute. Adorable:)
