SWEATERS 'N VELVET

 thrifted sweater, thrifted snake blouse, uo boots, f21 leggings

So here's the deal. The not so awesome deal. Tomorrow it will snow. SNOW. Today it was 70 degrees. So here I am, bundled up and ready to go. I was actually kind of shocked to find this over-sized cardigan so easily, as I was hoping for something just like it when I decided to venture out thrifting. Rarely do I find what I went for, but in this case luck was on my side. Two dollars worth of warm baggy glory. 
I realize I talk about the weather frequently on this blog. It's been stated that weather out here is generally viewed as a problem most days of the year. Unlike certain parts of the country, Nebraska has the most bi-polar mood swing weather ever. A "beautiful" day where the sun is out but it is not swim-in-air humid and there is no wind is incredibly rare. You never really know when to put away your summer clothes though, because after a -10 degree ice storm one day, we could have a 60 degree sunshine filled day the next. With this said, I will probably be blogging slightly less than I am now, as the weather will probably not permit. Unless I want to continue doing indoor shots, I will be too cold and not wearing anything worth shooting, because let's face it - arctic wind and snow clothing is not cute. Blegh. But! I will be taking a very necessary and exciting long vacation during the brunt of Winter, so look forward to that. I am.

A lot of you have mentioned liking velvet. If you love wearing velvet half as much as I do, you should definitely check out Larissas store Miracle Eye where this girl sells lots of it, and for really good prices. On top of the velvet, these shorts are da bommmmb. If you don't live in Frigid, USA...you can rock them all year. And if you do reside in Frigid, this jacket is also super rad. Yay for teenage girls with independent businesses! Read her 'About' section in the store, if you get a chance.

Last but not least, here is the only Halloween photo I have that is not just some drunken blurry shot of my face. As I've said before, Chrissa gets told all the time that she looks like Lady Gaga, so she decided to go with this for her costume. I did her face makeup all with black eyeliner and a lipstick brush to blend for shadows. I went as a no-name goth chick.

  12. Ugh, I adore Miracle Eye's clothes, but all of the bottoms and legwear are too big for me in the waist by like, two and a half inches. I suppose I could buy something and take them in, as per usual. (Though it does get tiring after a while, I guess gaining more hand-sewing experience is something I shouldn't complain about. Besides, when can I resist snake print leggings?)

    I am HURTING for a pair of velvet pants. I think it's now a priority for me, after seeing Madeline wear some, and now you!

    Also, once again, you look rad as a goth chick.
