Tearaway Tuesdays


Judging by my last post, it seems I've delved into a seriously weird phase involving retro athletic wear? These striped Everlast leggings are certainly not the most flattering things I've ever worn on my body, but they juxtapose so deliciously with my crisp Paul & Joe (for Tarjay) button-down shirt that I couldn't resist.

My timing seems to have coincided with my discovery of this tumblr-tastic Etsy shop called "Yard Sale 666" which appears to specialize in bad wigs, Spice Girl platforms and tearaway pants.


Speaking of tearaway pants, I wrote a column about Tearaway Tuesdays for the school newspaper. It's kind of funny. Click to enlarge and read it!

I'm really glad you have a similar body shape to mine. It's extremely hard to find clothes that fit well and seeing how you style them is extremely helpful.

Those photos kind of scare me. They look like photos from a drugged time traveller... O.o

Leggings like that could never be a bad thing.

I love how your style is so random and completely crazy! I`m a coordinating freak, so everything has to be soo coordinated and color matched.

Adore your creepers! And I think this is one of the first times I've seen leggings worn as trousers in a way I've been able to get on board with ^-^

I know what I miss from these already awesome pants - a little skirt that came with many trousers in those golden days. :) I don't think I've ever owned one of those, but the cool kids did!

Love the shoes! Yes to platforms!

Wish my Uni paper had had articles like this one. :D

Still reminding me of: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm4164453632/tt0113243 (maybe I'll find something that might goes on the Yard Sale 666 etsy! thanks!)
The article is hilarious, though as a person who hate pants I mainly wear skirts which is legally less dangerous.
