Necklace - antique, dress - Modcloth, shoes - Aldo
Hello, hope you've all seen my giveaway post! Yes, I posted it today, but I'll just tell you in case you haven't seen it.
I was actually wearing another outfit earlier, but I was extremely dissatisfied. Normally, I manage to suck it up if an outfit isn't anything special, but I didn't feel confident whatsoever in it. I felt insecure, which usually doesn't happen with my outfits.
So this is outfit number two. It's significantly more simple than the previous one, and I like it better. Coincidentally, I feel prettier and it seems that all of my photos came out better. The latter is probably due to me finally applying common sense to photography, but either way, I feel that this is more "me."
I'm going to throw in a little bit of opinion right now - am I the only one that's getting sick of Jeffrey Campbell shoes? Maybe it's a sort of bitterness since I refuse to buy anything made with leather (unless it's used, but no one ever seems to give them up!), but it's becoming a little repetitive. The latest style of heel is done eight different ways, then bloggers wear it in approximately sixteen ways. I certainly don't feel that I'm in the position to criticize anyone, nor do I intend to. But I just can't help but wonder if it's "indie brands" such as these that are taking away from some of the variety in the blogosphere. And then again, maybe Jeffrey Campbell shoes are well-made. I don't know.
As I might have mentioned, I'm thinking of setting up an online shop with pieces I don't want anymore for whatever reason... such as this cool vintage belt that I've never found a way to wear. However, I think I might just save vintage items for the ebay store I'll be setting up with my aunt and I'll try to swap other items on Chic Swap.
Speaking of Chictopia, I've been published again on the Uglies blogs! This time it's on TeenUgly, which is truthfully the column I feel more comfortable writing for. Check it out here.
PS I'm trying to think of a way to revamp my layout. It's getting a little cluttered.
