Go out and find the one that you love and who loves you.


I know this is really weird guys, but I actually felt like wearing COLOUR today. The Navajo-print skirt (that cost me fifty cents!) and my Of Montreal shirt are pretty much the only matching colourful items in my closet. I love how it looks like "Little Miss Of Montreal" is peeking out from above my skirt. As for the skirt, its usually an awkward length but I love how it looks here where I hiked it up and made it into a paper bag waist with the belt.

So I went to the public library to get some essay writing done today, and I'm kind of shocked that I'd never really 'discovered' it before. As a student, I don't really have time for extensive pleasure reading but I didn't know I can rent MOVIES and MUSIC there. This is genius! The country bumpkin in me continues to be impressed by things that city folks really take for granted.

I could LIVE in the publiv library. I get genuinly excited when I go, I just love books to death (I'd rather spend a day in the library than a day shopping... just saying)

I love that skirt, good call with the paper bag waist. COLOUR can be FUUUUNN!

<3<3<3

emily said...

oh, i really love your tights. esp. with the oxfords. wait, you can rent MOVIES at the library?? why has no one informed me of this before??

Ross said...

That skirt is really super cute. And your wearing "Of Montreal". Can I go ahead and marry you? (Is that weird to say?)

hannah elizabeth said...

i love the fact that you can get DVDs from the library - every single episode of freaks and geeks? yes please!

skirt is very nice, you look nice in colour!

Amelia said...

I love everything in this outfit, especially the skirt and tights. Awesome color scheme. Yeah, I definitely don't use library resources enough. I could use some new music.

diane said...

Most libraries let you do tapes and music now, even the really crappy ones like the one near me.
I have almost that exact same belt buckle. My father-in-law gave it to me years ago, and I really love it.

thatsorad said...

Oh yeah!! !the library has all the rad stuff no one else does!!!! Esp cool stuff for kids, or those movies you used to watch. Sord in the stone, Lord of the Rings anime...NEVERENDING STORY!!!!

You find the coolest stuff! Rad colour!

That skirt is amazing. I hate to get into branding, but it really DOES remind me of the Pendleton x Opening Ceremony collaboration. What a fantastic find!

worn fashion journal said...

I love love love the public library. I take out dozens for craft books and test them out before buying them. Fashion history books are the best - they often have stuff that's nearly impossible to find anywhere else. Also, as soon as I wrote 'public library' Katharine Hepburn said 'public library' on my TV. Strange!

Great skirt too - I like that waist line. Underused.

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

Love your skirt! The whole outfit is fantastic. Gosh, I love libraries..but mine out here is rather limited. Sigh, cities are so much better.

Claudia said...

Hope-Fashion Narcotics said...

This is my favourite "bottom half" of yours I have seen for a long time. The grogeous print of the skirt, in juxtoposition with theose tights and a pair of beautiful battered brouges to conclude. Excellent. And the library, I am glad your have discovered the plethora of services avalile. Sorry for the incorrect spellings here, my i-pod touch pad has very small keys, and a predictive setting.

you look sweet and great idea of hiking up the skirt to create a paperbag waist ;) xo

Carissa said...

there are movies and cds to borrow at my school library, too, which i was absolutely amazed/stunned/bedazzled by first semester. and they're good ones! basically any commercial work i could ever desire.
your skirt is super dramatic that way, also +10k points for of montreal

hannah said...

Colleen said...

Where, pray tell, did you get those shoes; and how much were they, if I may ask? I looooove oxford-type shoes but I have yet to find an affordable pair. :p

Haha, I never use my uni library to its full potential. I'm always in quite a frantic mood when I go to the library as its usually for research I should've done weeks ago for a project due in imminently.
Loving the skirt, that's my fave colour palette.
