I know it looks like all I do is buy clothes and by now, you must think my wardrobe takes up a whole apartment Anna Dello Russo style, but I promise you my wardrobe really isn't as big as it seems. Only my purse and shoe collections are getting out of hand. Anyways, I really need to work on wearing tops that aren't just t-shirts, so here's my attempt at it. I love the Swiss dot pattern of the button up top and the hounds tooth print sweater reminds me of a sweater Gwen Stefani once wore, so I had to get that too. Both of these are from the Gap.
I also bought some tights from the Gap that way I could wear dresses during the winter and possibly bring my shorts into winter territory. The pointelle dot tights are more like sweater tights, while the other ones are quite sheer. I found the blue pin at a vintage shop that claimed to specialize in vintage St. John jewelry and they claimed it was St. John, but there's no mark on it saying it is. For the price I got it at, I really don't mind if it's not St. John.
This pair of shorts from Zara ranks pretty darn high on my list of genius pieces of clothing. From the front, it looks like an asymmetrical skirt and from the back, it looks like a pair of tailored black shorts. I need to take it to a tailor to fix a bad seam, but I'm so excited I got them. They'll be perfect for my trip to Paris! I'm already planning extra chic outfits for my trip! The fingerless gloves were supposed to be for my Boy George costume, but since I didn't use them, I'm thinking of returning them.
And what did I tell you? My shoe collection is getting out of hand. Please welcome, my fifth pair of oxfords from H&M. They were really inexpensive, so I don't mind too much that I bought them, but I really need to get my brown oxfords one day. Every time I go oxford shopping, I tell myself I'm getting a brown pair, but I never end up buying a brown pair. These oxfords have a once inch platform, so it gives me some extra height and from the top, they look completely tame, but from the side, you get a great look at the pastel, neon green soles. They're actually super comfortable and I'm hoping I can wear these during my trip to New York. I'm sorry if all of you are getting bored with my clothing posts. If so, let me know.
