Only after bragging about turning my tank top into a halter did I realize… that… it… still doesn’t fit. Curses! For now, let’s call it a ‘layering piece’:
Green shirt – Personal Identity, second-hand
Printed tank – St. John’s Bay? Second-hand, altered by me
Skirt – Mossimo (2007?) via Target. Formerly tan, dyed by me
Sandals – No name, second-hand
Belt – Cleverly crafted by ME ME ME from two second-hand belts. Thank you.
Purse – Forever 21
Head Scarf Dealybob – Claire’s (2007?)
Cuff – Ebay
If only I’d stood up straight. Now hundreds of fascinating strangers will say “Gee, I ALMOST subscribed to Jaunty Dame, but her bad posture is disgraceful.” They’ll say it aloud, even.
Sharp-eyed readers will recognize most of this outfit. This is because my entire wardrobe fits in two suitcases. I’m trying to create a fabulously mix-and-match wardrobe where everything can be worn multiple ways. If you know of any fun, semi-minimalist style bloggers, let me know!
I wear a narrow metal headband every day to keep my hair back. It’s practical, but the look feels too little girly and conservative on me. I thought a very wide headband might look more modern—
—and so it does! It’d look even better with yard-long dreadlocks and an aquiline nose, but I’ll make do.
