Ask me, I won't say no.


So, the outfit marks my first foray into wearing the epic gem sweater that I thrifted a couple weeks ago. I don't even go into thrift stores looking for weird gem sweaters anymore, they just seem to find me. Its almost like they can sense my presence and know that I can't resist buying them so they always flock the the racks that I like to browse. I'm telling you, its insane!

Anyhoo, I decided to wear it with my XL Nirvana t-shirt, thrifted skirt, thermal socks and Docs. Are you shocked? Pretty much every outfit I wear is a fail safe combination of: weird knitwear, thick socks and Doc Martens. Perhaps I'm in a style rut, but damned if I don't love it!

The preppy stripes on the socks are an interesting twist with the docs and gem sweater. Now you need to do a gem sweater youtube vid and you'll go down in a book of epic.

oh? am I the first to comment?
lovely!

hehe~ Style ruts aren't really too bad. You can always seem to haul yourself out in the end (if you really need too~)
The sweater is lovely! It's so..shiny! yay!
I wonder how far away people could see you from if you stood in the sun?

Hey hey
I love this blog. Truly, I do. And you're clearly a crazy cool person, but please please please

No more thermals socks and docs.

It's gettin' boring!

Bring back the prada boots and the lace dress! I beg you!

You are looking even more awesome lately. I'm 20 in a month. Perhaps my style will improve.

I really want to wear socks like that, but they dont' really go over jeans and I don't wear leggings

UGHHHHHHH

YES! I love this outfit, will you post it on Lookbook so that I can hype/heart it? (;

Diane said...

Haha, at least you like your ruts (and with good reason, you're lookin' good, Isabel). When I'm in one, I HATE it!

And oh, that cardigan is so so good.
