Can I confess something? These "outfit posts" make me feel quite silly sometimes. The thing is, I don't think I'm really fashionable (I love fashion but I'm not the greatest at partaking in trends, personally). In fact, sometimes I look back at these posts and think "what the hell was I wearing??" But I do love being able to share how I put together an outfit, using vintage pieces and making them look updated. And I love that can give a perspective of what it's like to have a wardrobe where virtually no new pieces are coming in (wah, I'm poor). Sometimes it turns out cool. Sometimes I look pretty lame. And I suppose I'm fine with that (even if it is documented on the internet for all to see).
A couple of pieces here are making their second appearance on the Miskabelle blog. The vintage blouse, first seen HERE and the lace cardigan thingy, seen HERE. And though I just said that I'm sharing how I come up with outfits, consisting of no new pieces...I guess I lied. The mocs are new (a gift for sharing My Minnetonka Story)! I guess since I didn't buy them, that still kind of counts?
(I don't know what I'm doing in that second picture....but I do know that I have the same
uber-serious, I'm-trying-to-be-a-model expression in both.)
blouse: vintage, cardigan: DIY, jeans: Gap (thrifted. Score!), moccasins: Minnetonka Thunderbird
So pretty much, this is my monthly (ahem, there may be a common denominator there), self-deprecating outfit post. Also, I was really COLD being outside in short sleeves for these photos--yay Fall!
