Legs

One of my secret loves is getting mail. I used to write all my friends snail mail letters when I was younger, and I still give people hand-written notes whenever it seems appropriate. And honestly, you don't even begin to appreciate mail until you go away to University, where any scrap of mail makes you jump for joy. But wait! This mail tirade is leading somewhere. I recently discovered the joys of online shopping and received this package in the mail on Tuesday. Oh happy joy!


-One pair of white jersey yoga pants
-One black jersey racerback dress
-One pair of tie-dye leggings (!)
-One cream jersey drape skirt

That's a lot of jersey.

I couldn't wait and wore the drape skirt to work yesterday! The polka dots, drapey-ness and the flat men's oxford brogues make for a sort of "smart, sensible girl whose notes you want to copy in class" sort of look. At least that's what I was going for. Art imitating life, perhaps?

Re your comment: Thanks. These ones are actually falling apart. I have to keep gluing the soles back to the shoe :'(.

Polka dots,brouges AND tie dye all in one pst? I am thinking I might die of excitemnt(seriously-that wasn't sarcastic). I also, am overjoyed when I recieve personal mail,not crappy credit bills or dentist postcards. There is just something so mysterious and decadent about reciveing mail. Which is why I was wondering, if you would like to exchange a one off letter, maybe containing some weird art of photogrpahy? If its not your thing, I'm cool with it though.

As a mountain girl, with more winter than summer, I can heartily say "here, here" for online shopping. You did well.

Wow - now that you mention it, I realize that I, too, have a secret love for getting snail mail! Unfortunately, the last snail mail I got was my report card :( Nothing exciting. But it looks like you were successful :) Cute outfit, too!

I'm really stoked to see what you do with those tie-dye leggings. I bet they'll be great. I also adore snail mail. I even had a pen pal in Denmark a couple years ago. Sometimes I send letters to my friends that live in the same town, just because I know how exciting mail can be.

Ah, if only AA's CEO wasn't such a loser, I've been tempted by so many things there lately! Also, mail is awesome. One can never have enough.

I love getting mail, too. Great buys! I used to have the drape skirt in black, but I think it might have disappeared. I should investigate...

C.Elizabeth & Natalia said...

Oh, I love that blouse! I love polka dots...!

I love getting mail and sending mail as well. Though I must admit I don't do it as often as I used to. It's so much easier to send an email... which is a shame really.

Online shopping is great, except when you have to pay duties for stuff that crosses the border.
Canada has few great online shoe stores....maybe that's a good thing.

WendyB said...

Can't wait to see the tie-dye on.

Charlotte Drene said...

Cute. Very, very cute.
I love the umberella!

Miss Woo said...

A whole lotta jersey is a good thing in my books, I have the same yoga pants and they are like my 'household/workout/too comfy to remove' item. Can't wait to see you rock the tie dye too!

ZombieLace said...

I would copy your notes all day long! Not to mention your outfits :~) Jersey is the comfiest too.
