What I'm Wearing: Purple passion

Ok, folks. It's February, it's snowy, and I'm outside wearing leggings and the thinnest of cardigans. I'm going to look cold. That's just life.

This is the bravest pose I was able to manage: arms uncrossed!

Cardigan: Modcloth
Tank: Old Navy
Skirt: Made from a thrifted women's dress shirt
Leggings: Tulle
Shoes: Thrifted
Earrings: Etsy shop Strands of Light
Necklace: Tom's Gifts, right here in Binghamton

Here I go, layering buttons over buttons again. I'm pretty sure there's some picky little Emily Post-era fashion rule dead set against doing this, but nuts to that. I like it. It's nice in a quaint, ladylike, untidy librarian sort of way.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

You look charming. Love the necklace and the earrings. Isn't Modcloth great? Peace, Stephanie

Kristina said...

Yes, Modcloth is great! I can't believe how long it took me to discover it.

You look lovely, like a vintagey teacher!

Kristina said...

Thanks, Lisa-Marie! I'm not sure what to make of that: should someone go out and decide to be a teacher, because she looks like one? Something to puzzle over...

Becky said...

Well, I think you look pretty! I especially applaud the thrifting a dress to make a skirt! Hope you are warmed up now.

Kristina said...

Becky-- actually, it was a shirt I thrifted and turned into a skirt. Glad you approve of the end product!
