This morning when your fashionista rolled out of bed, she was inspired. The first thought (besides the pain in my tooth) was about the cobalt blue blazer and cheetah print loafers. I obviously had to wear a stellar outfit to link them but what wear.. I’m your typical preppy styled girl, for the most part. I enjoy things that are matchy match, so it was odd that I decided on a pair of sparkly sweater tights, a plaid navy blue n red skirt (not cobalt :O), and my “chick with brains” top. My button earrings completed the look and honestly, I was happy with it. My mother, she was confused. I told her apparently she had to fashion forward to understand (I’m grumpy at 8 in the morning) and she replied I didn’t match. I decided after that comment that my outfit doesn’t need to match, it goes…from my head to my toes.
The cheetah loafers were in the same color family as my yellow button earings. The gray sparkles in my stockings matched my chick with brains shirt, my navy n red skirt was in the same color family as my blazer and my glasses (RED) obviously tied it all together. I got a few funny looks, but most of them I will take as an obvious sign of jealousy because I think it took nerve to pull off something out of my comfort zone.
After I got through my “Understanding Textiles” and “Retail Buying” courses this morning, I had the thrill of an emergency root canal. My tooth was getting worse, and I was FREAKING OUT at the idea of getting it taken care of, but I honestly had not choice.
I know you were worried.. I was. Anyways. I was puffy and uncomfortable -still am- but it will hopefully the operation will have been worth it. As a reward, my momma took me to the prom dress store 🙂 where she put down the downpayment on the BEAUTIFUL cream and black rose ball gown. I won her over, she now likes it too. I am planning on wearing it with black gloves and a black choker. The only bad news? It was 200 dollars more than I thought. Oops.
2 hours later I worked my shift at k-mart. It was boring, and I was hungry. The good thing about a corset-backed dress is the chewy chocolate chip cookies that I ate (on one side of my mouth) can go to my hips with at least 5 lbs of wiggle room and I will be fine :).
On my shift I started to add up all the money I need. That always seems to happen when I have 20 dollars to my name. My sister’s birthday is saturday. As I made her birthday purchases my card decided to decline. Humiliating… but tomorrow is payday, thank God. I have to save money (never been my strong suit) to pay for half of my winterball dress, half of my prom dress, corsages, prom tickets, winterball tickets, and of course supporting my habit of shopping. I’m going to Georgia (ALONE) to meet my Aunts, they’re renting a vacation home on the beach for spring break and obviously I am going to buy new ADORABLE preppy touristy clothes.. I wanted to buy the knew rolling luggage and duffles Vera Bradley had on sale today, but it amounted to 300 dollars quicker than I thought.. and lets just say thank God I don’t have a real credit card.
Well, I’m starting to feel light headed from either the lack of food, need to sleep, or Novocain wearing off, probably all of the above, but I supposed that means it’s a sign to go. I hope everyone has a fabulous and fashion forward friday tomorrow, I will be sure to blog again then! Let me just leave you with one more thing that amused me on my credit card google search (:
One thought on “It doesn’t need to match, it goes…from my head to my toes.”
Just wait till you get to college, no disapproving looks from mommas about outfit choice (: haha mine always told me I didn’t match either. Plus I’ve found at my college that its more socially acceptable, in fact fashionable, to intentionally not match haha
