Have you seen this blog? It is simply amazing. This girl — Roz — is seriously my new favorite blogger. Not only do her photographs have beautiful English rural backgrounds (*faints with envy*), she has an incredible fashion sense. It's a lot like my own: mixing vintage style with modern trends. Like me, she shops mainly at Goodwill-type places. And the most inspiring part? She recently had surgery on her spine and still manages to maintain her style and composure. Now that's elegant. So if you love fashion, hop on over to Clothes, Cameras, & Coffee (see, even the name strikes some little bell of happiness with me!) and be sure to check out her spine dresses, they're incredible. This one's going right into my bookmarks.
Now on to my outfit. *sighs* I really ought to post more about fashion, it's such a huge part of my life. I got a subscription to Teen Vogue for Christmas (no more supermarket trips!) and I've been dissecting the most recent issue (which by the way features one of the Pretty Little Liars actresses, who I love).
If you have this issue, you may recognize the following quote by Sky Ferreira...
Little did he know, I was wearing old navy.Though I love getting dressed up, I'm not rich. I get all my designer/runway clothes from Goodwill, but most of my look is scrounged from old clothes in my basement or just bought outright from 'normal' stores. I love designer clothes and if I could would ditch our mall entirely (except the Coach store, perhaps), but sometimes you just have to work with what you've got. So...
skirt: Forever 21
tank top: American Eagle
jacket: Abercrombie & Fitch
tights: American Eagle
boots: Lower East Side (via Payless)
All stores from the mall, none particularly fashion-forward, none very expensive. But I wanted an outfit that looked good and wasn't totally clonelike, that had some fashion.
