As you can see I'm a bit new to all this self portraitizing. I tried and tried to get a shot that showed the full top to toe, to no avail. Oh well. What you are missing here are the same Camper shoes from yesterday. The sweatshirt is from Banana Republic. The last few weeks of December I went on a bit of a frenzied clothing spree and this is part of the spoils. The woman at the bagel place complemented me on it today. She compared it to a peacoat - probably to do with the double row of buttons that sort of mimic a double breasted coat. The skirt was given to me by a friend of my mother. That was probably back in junior high. I wore it quite a lot in high school, but not so much since then. The fishnets (which you can't really see here) I've had, if not since high school, then certainly since college. They were incredibly shredded, and after spending the day tugging at them, I promptly threw them out as soon as I got home. I used to wear fishnets all the time when I was younger, but these days they sort of make me feel like a teenage goth. At any rate I have a box full of plain black fishnets, so I'm covered should the need for them arise. I'm still not sure if I think this outfit has a cute 20's vibe going on (what with the dropped waistline), or is just plain frumpy.
