|I thought I'd repeat the same pose from the last rainy day I carried this umbrella!|
Today I went for this rich royal purple and yellow combination, but the yellow is a lovely buttery shade; it also only shows in a small-ish triangle. I actually was given the yellow top by my sister-in-law and I altered it. It used to have little pearl beads sewn all over and a ribbon that ran awkwardly across the bust. I carefully cut off the ribbon and all the beads and turned the ribbon into a bow that I attached with a combination of safety pins and fashion tape. Voila! I can move the bow wherever I like. Did I mention I adore bows?
here. I ordered them not quite realizing the heels were that high but kept them anyway. They do start to hurt after a whole day of walking around, but who am I to let that stop me?
I wore this outfit to "work" which is actually tutoring a high school student. I absolutely love that family: they make me the most delicious tea every time! And my student is so sweet and polite. It's a perfect job for during the school year: for 2-3 hours a week it basically funds me buying tea and the occasional lunch on campus (although normally I'm a "packed lunch" kinda person) and my occasional nights out. And also my cheap clothes and shoes habit!
I just realized here my approach to style: "do it your way, but don't get crazy." (i.e. Don't overdo it.)
