I wish that I knew what I know now...

This look is definitely an updated take on winter classics: I've worn this sweater and my purple Docs about a bazillion times on this blog already but they're both statement pieces, perfect for beating the winter blues. I say an 'updated' look because of the peter pan collar, which is definitely a more recent obsession of mine. Sparkles, Doc Martens and peter pan collars = this outfit is pretty much life defining.
A continued huge thank you to my roommate Jess, who has been responsible for my outfit pics as of late. She has a legendary habit of wearing two different coloured socks, and it always brightens up my day.

The different coloured socks made me laugh!

I really want to wear peter pan collars but they come on such shapeless clothes! Woe.

First of all like the "Keep it weird kids" slogan and teh outfit looks great! Purple doc's are awesome and I'm a big fan of statement sweaters. The collar is very cool but why are they called Peter Pan collars?
And at last your roommate is really cool! Weird, but cool.

Damn, that sweater rocks! And also, love the docs on you! I can't seem to break mine in eventhough I've had them for a pretty long time now. They're just so fucking sturdy! Got some tips maybe?
