Ask; what for?

 Outfit double whammy comin' at ya! Today's outfit it pretty simple. Bichromatic, thrifted old man cardigan with little girl's tutu (H&M) and crazy cult leader shirt (American Apparel). The tutu is so short I have to wear bloomers underneath! I guess that's the price I have to pay for being 15 years too old to shop in the kid's department. My defense: it cost $3.

Yesterday's outfit proves to the world that it is possible to do 'goth jams' without wearing any black! You just have to get the proportions right. Dramatic long maxi skirt, loose cropped shirt, stern square toe loafers and hair in a creepy Wednesday Addams/Prairie Girl braid. Everything American Apparel, Salvatore Ferragamo loafers.

I love that skirt, it is such a great shade of pink. Not to girly but very classy!

Just caught up on a couple of entries, and I admit that I am one of the fans of the pictures of farm-girl Isabel.

I have always found sheep to be unfriendly. Only interested in food. You'd think we'd have something in common, but NOOOO!

I too shop in H&M kids when I probably shouldn't... But ya know, t-shirts with ponies and tigers WITH LIGHTNING BOLTS COMING OUT OF THEIR EYES.

You're such a bloody good dresser.

Damsels said...

Damsels said...

i wish i could wear a tiny skirt like this one .but my wiast isnt nearly as narrow as it would need to be.

Ellinor Forje said...

I love the two skirts, but I can't say which outfit I like better. Thanks for sharing the inspiration though and come visit me too when you have time.

Cheers.
