Body of Work


It was super awkward taking pictures yesterday because the landlord is doing doing some owrk on the house, so I decided to take full advantage of the awkwardness and ham it up in full "schoolgirl skank" uniform. I bought the bobbly sweater on a recent trip to Value Village. It was a shoulderpad nightmare when I first spotted it, but I had to purchase it due to its uncanny resemblance to the Jeremy Laing bubble sweater I was obsessed with ages ago. My boyfriend thinks the bubbles look like balls of human hair. Gross! Overall, I think I look like the kind of preppy dresser that my mom might've been during her fashion career heyday in the 1980s.

On the picture it rather looks like you have chocolate chips on your sweater, not hairballs!

That would be so amazing, a sweater that grows chocolate chips... Yum.

Loving any garment that makes me think of food. :)

Love the jumper! I really want a jumper covered in bobbles too-might DIY it, take forever but HAS to be worth it, right?

ahaha school girl skank. I don't see any skankiness in this outfit. It's a nice outfit, I have the same skirt... I think I'm going to sell it soon though.

Human hair? Imagine coughing a ball like that up! I'd be freaked out but also kinda amazed. I mean, I just we must accidentally inject hair sometimes, so it might make sense. Your hair is prettyyyyy
