It has been a considerably long time since my last IRL update, I realize this. But Ladies, for sheezy, my outfits have seriously been lackluster and uninspired. ** Not worthy of a post or a picture, for sure.** But this morning, amongst the closet issues I have been facing of late, I was able to find some creative, fashion-forward inspiration; Something actually worthy to share avec vous, my interweb gal pals.
Today's outfit was one of those rare, unplanned outfits that came together without much planning, under heavy duress and some major work clothing shortages. Most of my stuff is at the dry-cleaner's, Ladies. I actually fear picking up my clothes right now, all due to the projected ginormous size of the bill. It is going to be so astronomically high, I actually fear picking up the clothes! Like my dry cleaner is holding them hostage and all I need to do is succumb to paying the ransom to look work-worthy again. It's ridiculous.
Anyhoo, that is neither here nor there.
I basically had one skirt to work with, a BCBG high-waisted black version. I had one loose tunic-ish top available at my disposal, and a cardigan with a droopy drape. I threw it all together and found my men's J.Crew belt and threw that on, too. Why not. It was there, it sort of matched the cardigan, it was meant to be.
Just call me Kim Kardashian, 'cause the boo-tay is out of control!
Out of Control!
I stepped back and actually thought, hmm.... not bad. I added the necklace of which I do not know the name that was recently marked down in FS. It's supposed to be all twisty and tangled and sort of adds to my devil-may-care ensemble. I have to say, I was so comfy today I wouldn't have known I actually looked half pulled together. & I got a compliment or two, aaaand I wasn't ready to pull it all off when I got home. Do you do that? I normally do...um, the minute I walk in the door. But not today, oh no. It was like I had a pair of sweats on. I was that comfy.
This outfit might have to make another showing in the upcoming future. I would say today was definitely a win-win. No fat feelings, comfy as all heck, felt a little pulled together, and was totally work appropriate. Today was a good clothes day! I would have to say this was shopping my closet at its finest and it actually worked. When you're forced to be creative, all kinds of cool ideas can pop up.
Anyone else shopping the closet? Have any great tips?
