Wearing: Miss Shop dress, Stolen Girlfriends Club X Jeffrey Campbell boots, Kamibashi string doll mermaid necklace, MyLikeZoo (etsy) Bart sweater.
I love being born
in the 90s and appreciating The Simpsons as well as that spiky haired
hell-raiser Bart. This sweater is a knock-off of Jeremy Scott's
Fall-Winter 2012 collection and is my present to myself for completing
semester two's exams and stuff but all up it cost my fifty dollars which
is a lot better than two hundred and fifty from eBay for a second hand
jumper or four hundred dollars for the real thing brand new. So this is
what it feels like to feed the Chinese factory sellers on which
knock-offs thrive upon and choose a cheaper alternative. it feels like I
beat the system there and that's pretty damn good. Also, Grimes
aka Claire Boucher has like the same one and I just got back my results
for this semester's units and I got two high distinctions and two
distinctions! This sweater is well and truly earned now.
I also wanted to
wear this sweater with a giant red, plaid bow but it refused to
cooperate and flopped pathetically all over the place so in the end I
scrapped that too and just was happy to wear a cute brooch and necklace
combination. Speaking of plaid, this jumper would also go well with my
purple plaid skirt and just about everything else in my wardrobe- I must
be in love or something. This sweater is going to be my new best friend
next year and I can tell I'll wear it to death to university but for
now the weather sucks and I need to lay off it until this blasted heat
drops off. The first day of Summer, I should be eating ice cream or going to a festival or something but instead I'm going off to work, organising DIY tutorials (I promise, they're coming soon guys...) and blogging indoors. I understand this young adulthood/ freedom concept so poorly it's not even funny anymore...
It's sort of normal to struggle wardrobe coordination with the colour yellow when your a brunette like me, but I can't resist black either and it gave me a lame excuse to play with just one pair of my Jeffrey Campbell shoes. Something about the heel and platform makes me feel powerful, but also dizzy when I'm a bit sick and I was a bit more pale then usual so the rest of today will be spent lying down in bed with a good book until I have to go to work. I hate getting sick on the day I'm supposed to work and then having to go anyway because there's not enough time to graciously cancel. The good news is that if I survive I'll have more money to buy craft bits, start collecting weird curiosities and grow my wardrobe.Realistically though I will be spending all that hard-earned cash on buying petrol to practice driving more so I can get my license and then drive myself to work. In the grand scheme of things, my plan seems terribly flawed.
