25 cents? Hah!


Today I just really didn't give a crap, so I reached for my cuffed gray work pants, the Rodarte-ispired sweater that I knitted myself and these old as hell purple Docs. After taking the picture I decided the outfit needed a little something-something, so I put on some giraffe bling. This is significant - I NEVER wear jewelry EVER.


Not exactly the epitome of 'feminine', but that's okay.

That sweater is awesome! It looks so great~
You don't happen to have a pattern do you?
I'm dead-scared of knitting sweaters, but I'm sure I could do it with an easy pattern!

Fifi said...

Your hair looks pretty at that length. I don't really wear jewellry either...

Rhiannon said...

Whoa, I love that giraffe bling! I totally appreciate the power of one in-your-face jewel, and this seems perfect.

Those cuffed trousers give the outfit a "Katherine Hepburn" vibe, cool. I can't say enough about how much I love that sweater, you talented girl you.
Your smile in the bling photo is really nice, you look happy and calm.

I was gonna comment on the outfit yesterday, but I'm assuming you get compliments every 5 seconds so it wouldn't be necessary.

Very nice, I like your necklace.

Diane said...

Oh, that last photo makes me so so happy. I love that it's not the epitome of girliness because I sure do love me some cuffed pants and Docs! I'm so envious of those lovely purple shoes of yours.

And can I say that that giraffe necklace is completely epic??

Cassiopeia said...

Hot trousers... Reminds me of the wear-anywhere,anytime trousers gap in my wardrobe lol. Giraffe bling rocks too! Xxxc

R. said...

mm, I love this outfit. It may be simple, but anything you wear with diy-rodarte sweater is awesome. And purple Docs? How can you go wrong. Also, if you have awesome giraffe jewelry, you NEED to start wearing it more often. Haha.

p.s. Your hair is looking really cute these days! I'm jealous of your curls.

chloe said...

That top is so great! I really must learn how to knit, I'm impressed by your skill.
And love the giraffe necklace! ha, I'm the same - I NEVER wear jewelry, so it's groundbreaking when I do.

├×omeline said...

your giraffe makes me want to have an elephant around my neck like when i was 9

Kylie said...

Although I'm hella late on the Docs bandwagon, I'm really considering a coloured pair... I was thinking pink? But your purple ones are looking good to me too though. Hmmm, I need a re-think.

<3<3<3

jessica said...

you look like natalie portman.
maybe not really, but i think so.
its something about your delicate features that reminds me of her.
OMG I SOUND LIKE A MEGA KREEPR.
disregard that fact hahah.

fayeee said...

purple docs, mmm nice choice.

Damsels said...

Becca Jane said...

I love the whole outfit, especially your sweater. I've tried so often to learn to knit and fail horribly, so kudos to you!
