Squelch Monster

I'm going to take an outfit dump on all you guys. I've taken an outfit pic every day this week but am finding I have zilch time to post them so here you go. I'm going to rebury my head in homework now, thanks.

Tuesday: Why don't I wear this Joy Division tank top nearly as much as I should? (Oh yeah, its because I have too many clothes.)

Wednesday: St. Patrick's Day!! I wanted to avoid being labeled a 'grumpy bastard' so I wore a green shirt and paired it with an Irish grandpa cardigan. I hope everyone overdosed on green beer.

Thursday aka Today: I had my first training shift at American Apparel and I seriously could not get any happier. AA is the only store I ever buy 'new' items from (because thrifting rules) so its kind of a perfect fit. Perhaps the best job ever?

The last outfit was in my opinion the best (it's because of this bright blue. This kind of accents always make me think about Tokyo street style. Which is a good thing, haha)

I really like your style, it's creative but not over-the-top :)

I think Thursday's my favourite, but I'm diggin' them all! So happy you got the American Apparel gig, it's so perfect for you. Are you allowed to mix thrift store stuff with their merch on the job?

Love the last outfit's combination of mustard and turquoise. Pleased for you about the AA job- it's so good to have a job where all your wages go straight out of your account back into the till!

Crystal said...

Yay job! Also awesome Joy Division tank. It should indeed be worn more often. Good luck with the homework!

carolyn said...

Yay, Joy Division!

Everybody in the comments seems to be picking favourites but I honestly can't. I really love every one of these outfits.

On Patty's day I wore a floral skirt that had some green leaves on it but alas, all of my friends are clearly colourblind and decided that those leaves were not green enough. Luckily I avoided pinches.

Þomeline said...

Congrats on getting the job! :) One of my friends works there and her 50% discount RULES ahah. Glad you posted all those outfits, I was getting awesome thrift-ed outfit withdrawal symptoms.

Angelica said...

That third outfit is perfect! Congratulations on the job, I was seriously thinking of working there this summer but my mom made me get an internship instead. Do you have to wear all AA stuff or can you wear thrifted stuff with it, since they sell thrifted stuff in the store now?

firefly said...

I like all of your outfits this week, especially the last one. Good luck with your new job!

Marlena said...

Your Thursday look is off the hizz-house.<---me being gangsta, whilst complimenting.

rachel said...

That's so cool that you get to work in American Apparel, I'm pretty excited that its opening in Waterloo, since it's pretty much the only place where I buy new clothes as well. I hope it's really fun! :)

So jealous of your AA job! Do you get ace staff discount? (more importantly, fancy passing the joys of those discounts on?) Love your joy division tank, it's such a great print. xx
