I have a confession to make...I am not girly. Most of my friends know that I would choose trousers over a skirt any day. Don't get me wrong, I do love skirts and dresses because I think they can be easily styled but I am a feisty girl who loves a challenge. I think any girl can pull off the "leotard with a high-waisted skirt and booties" look but not everyone can make look trousers/jeans/pants look interesting.
Take for instance this dress. My boss' mom gave this to me last weekend and because it was a gift, it is hard to say no. At the back of my mind, I thought it was too granny and old-fashioned. Old-fashioned and vintage are two different things. Secondly, it was too floral and God knows I am not a fan of too much flowery stuff...I leave that to my love, Amy. But something inside me thought that I can actually make this not-so-me dress MINE...and so I did. Threw on some shearling leather jacket, combat boots, pink socks, braided belt, Ray Ban's and of course, the messy hair-- wahlahhhh, it is ME now ;)
The sun sets at 7pm now which is making me all giddy and happy! However, the weather's still at -25...BOO!!!! But in my mind, it is already Spring. Hence, the "spring anticipating" outfit.
I am back in Chictopia (http://www.chictopia.com/girlwiththemessyhair)
but I am still cramming because I can only upload 2 photos at a time! EEEP!!!
