What Difference Does It Make?


I wore this outfit yesterday and felt really overdressed for a lazy Sunday full of DIYs, homework, and watching mini documentaries about the Smiths, but hey, I love this outfit so why not? I'm pretty much obsessed with this simple but very prim Victorian dress that I bought off of Jayne's store.

Also, it was really cold out so I had to layer these pretty lace tights (a gift from my best friend!) over black tights and then add some thermal socks just to ward off hypothermia!

I was thinking that you were having somewhat of a Smiths binge from your tweets and the title of your last post. The tattoo is amazing by the way, and I love the ladylike dress and tights with the Doccers.

You look really cold, Izzy - I hope you warmed up next to a fire after your shoot. With marshmallows and hot chocolate, maybe? :)

I can't stop looking at the lace tights, though. Mmmm. Nice.

Geez girl how many pairs of Docs do you own!?!?!?
I've only got three pairs.

How's your back healing up?

You are the queen of '90s grunge looks! I love the velvet dress, and you look so lovely with a top-knot.

I love the layering of tights, I've been doing the same when I venture outside...

Faux Naif said...

the layered tights look awesome. and i LOVE your tattoo. like, unbelievably so. i have (secret) ink on me too, and i know what you mean... it's kind of a milestone to decide to imprint something onto your body. très très cool.

Excellent layering. Love the 90's revival

THOSE DOCS! I want!
Minor Threat is one of my all time favorite bands too.
I can listen to their stuff 24/7 and not get sick of it.
Damn, that JD tattoo is crazy!
I would seriously consider it but my mom would probably have a heart attack if i ever got it.
