chanel-o

Andrew off of my class said I looked pretty Chanel (this was Wednesday, btw). I was down with that.

cardi+ring; Topshop//mesh cut out body; off of placement//wool skirt+blazer; thrifted
//boots; priceless//necklace; H&M//scarf; DIY

I'm properly into this skirt right now - I got it from a charity shop in Byker a couple of weeks ago (not the amazing and excellent RSPCA, but for serious, pop back soon to see the most amazing thrift score ever which I found up in there yesterday) and I wasn't sure I'd made a good choice there, but I'm so glad I got it. It's super warm but also an awesome length and shape. I got a ton of compliments on it, which is always nice.

I think I need to shorten the straps a little on this body like; I was shuffling my top up all day lest my boobs fell out. There's plenty of em to do so...

PS, what's up with my face on the third pic? Hmm.

My hat is off to you. You have taken a skirt that says "the 1990s!" quite loudly, and you have made it look awesome. I know that sounds kind of backhanded. But I don't mean it to be!

It really does fit you well, too, I'm jealous.

blush, etc - thanks guys!
yeah, claire, i think mebs that was what my reservations about it were, but i'm coming around to the idea. don't wanna be too 90s...i guess that's why it took me a while to get into the leggings thing; don't wanna be too 80s neither...
i mean, i love vintage and stuff, but you never want it to look like a costume and thats always my first thought when putting together something with vintage.
