And you know, if you are a nun, these may not be the best choice for you either.
However, if you are a sister wife, a la "Big Love," then maybe the middle outfit could work???
Anyhoo, I just get so tired of taking my own style too seriously and will just *you know* get all CRAZY up in this joint at least once a week. I love my normal, preschool run style, and often think that I am performing at near 100% most days, but I doubt that I would come off as a risk-taker. And you know what? Style is so flexible, so transient, so revolutionary, that the folks who take risks with their fashion are the ones who are definitely having fun AND are stylish, too. I can't say for sure if I hit sartorial high notes with these, or if I really just look like a very bad facsimile of some of Anthropologie's more (cough, cough) unique creations, BUT that wasn't the point of these outfits to me. The point was that I loved creating them, and more importantly, I LOVED WEARING THEM. ;)
How about you??? Are you having fun with your style?
If a photo looks "different," that is because these photos are. In some of them, my peeps B & T took the photos (love ya both, you handsome, talented photographers), and with some of them, the lovely, and very cool program picnik (a picasa thing) helped turn the photos into oldie timey looking film. (Love that!)
Sequin Sweatshirt, J. Crew, Size Extra-Small.
Tria Skirt, Anthropologie, Size Small. (Marietta, thank you for wearing it that one night we hung out, I had to HAVE this after seeing how great it looked on you!)
ZeeZee Tights, J. Crew, Size Medium-Tall.
Miller Short Moto Boots, J. Crew, Size 9.5.
Galaxy Necklace, J. Crew.
I briefly contemplated using this as my header. It would definitely fit the "My Superfluities" oeuvre.
I definitely can see Nikki (Big Love) wearing this, though. So there you go.
Blousy Top, Anthropologie, Size Medium.
Plaid Skirt, J. Crew, Size Small (THANK YOU, Pamela, for pointing this skirt out to me on ebay!).
Tights, J. Crew, Size Medium-Tall.
Petite Chou Boots, Anthropologie, Size 9.5
High Prairie Belt, Anthropologie, Size Small.
Ingrid Flare Jeans, Citizens of Humanity, Size 31. Let's give it up for me fitting into these again. Holla!!! (I bought them in 2005 and they fit for exactly 6 months before I got pregnant with Rex.)
Bloomsbury T-Bars, Boden, Size 41. You will get a close-up of those later on, as there are still a few sizes available at Boden.
They never sold-out, and I guess it was the height thing (I am almost 6 feet tall wearing these), but in my opinion, the higher the better when really going all out. Plus my jeans were the exact right length while wearing these.
They came in other colors, including the grey in the link above. Click on the photo to see what availability there is...there are often popbacks, so if you love these, keep checking back.
I hope that all you great, fab moms out there will give some fun a try. :) I mean, after all, we don't have to be serious about fashion all the time, right???
