Don't I basically look like a female Garth from Wayne's World in this outfit?
I actually feel like this is not the first time I've made this comparison... Garth is pretty much my ideal man, so it's not that big of a deal either way. Helloooooo, foxy.
So, yes, this outfit is pretty grungy. It is uber-comfortable and perfect for LA's schizophrenic approach to winter (Hi, it's 75 degrees! Now it's 45!). I like that the shorts have a baggy yet still relatively-high-rise fit. Also, I picked up both the white and black version of this tank top from the clearance section at Urban Outfitters for just $5 each. I LOVE THEM. They just go with everything and are a perfect layering piece. Isn't that such a stupid cliche thing to say? "What a great layering piece." Who do I think I am over here? But it's true, I tell you! Are you ready for the next cliche fashion-y thing? It's even worse, I promise. I ADDED THE SHOES FOR A BIT OF COLOR-POP. I know! It's true, too, though! I went "POP!" when I put them on. I am probably the first person in the world who has used Docs for a pop of color. The gods of grunge and punk are surely staring down at me with wrath right now.
Before I forget, THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who watched my rambling video! The feedback was amazing. I really appreciate all of you so much. Isabel posted a great video response on her blog. Ms. Frannie Pantz posted a great write-up about why she blogs, as well. Check it out, folks.
Lastly, I've been asked on Tumblr and Formspring before why I don't smile in my blog photos. It's because when I try to smile, this happens:
That's what about half of my blog outtakes look like. PURDY LADY. Dontcha wanna dance up on me? Mmmhmmm, get it.
