I spent a good chunk of money today, I got a new pair of white heels, and a rad skirt and shirt and sweater. All of it is so wonderfully tacky you would all hate it.

I tend to like a lot of what you wear. On the contrary, I don't like a lot of what others are wearing. Perhaps this makes me a bad person.

Rain boots are so damn adorable it doesn't matter if they make your legs looks thinner or thicker.

On this advice alone, I bought that pair I was considering, and they arrived in the mail today:


The boy insisted I try them on with my polka dot dress.  I think it kind of looks like someone threw up polka dots all over me.  Or maybe like I was wearing all red and walked under a building they were painting, and one of the painters accidentally dropped a bucket of white paint, and luckily it had a top, but unfortunately the top had a bunch of holes in it.  Basically, what I'm trying to say is that I'd never intentionally wear this outfit out of the house.  I do like the boots, though--too bad the forecast predicts sun the rest of the week.

I would agree that the boots and dress together are too much, but boy do I love that dress.

My college is in the upper midwest and suffers from ridiculous amounts of snow and ice storms. The past two years I attempted to get by in basic chucks... that was not a bright idea. I need winter boots. They need to have good enough traction so that I don't fall and not cost too terribly much. Suggestions?

Chucks in the snow are never a good idea. I got caught in a sudden burst of snow at school one day this spring..I'm pretty sure I actually had negative traction.

Also, Elizzybeth, Those are some really really rad rainboots, I wish I could find some like that but in a matte red. And I think you're silly for thinking they would have made your legs look too big!


I usually wear my chucks in all weather.. But maybe that's the stubborn canadian in me, I hate to admit I'm cold.

Annnnyhow.

I went shopping hooray(I can url post these if anyone minds the images)

In reality this shirt is more brown than navy, but for one reason or another I didn't realize I had the settings on my camera weird until I had taken that shirt off to put on another one.. Anyhow, this was my find of the day, 1.50$ thrift shop


I really needed a pair of heels that I can run around in and walk around in, and not save for just special occasions, I picked these up for 25 at Zelleerrrs (it's like canadian walmart), I have to go back to the shop though, there was no barcode on the size I needed so I brought up another tagged pair, then they accidentally gave me mismatched sized shoes.. rrrr.


Also, aaaaaugh I finally found a sweater I like, sorry for the awkward display (2 bucks at the same thrift shop as above)



And nooow for the advice part, I haven't worn a skirt since I was little, and I found this on the super cheap, however, I have no idea what to wear with it as a top? (Why yes, some of you will find it garishly tacky.) Also, should I go bare legged under this type of skirt? Skirts are one of the few areas that I have no idea what looks nice. It's more for the summer if anything I think

I like all of those, especially that first top.

as for the skirt, I don't think it looks bad with the top you have on with it. Maybe a brown short short sleeve button up would be nice. I used to have a pair of white mid-height pumps and I loved them... then I colored on them with puff paint so now they don't really match anything. But there are flowers growing up the heel and "BRITTANY!" on the sides

I like nail polish on guys, but only, ONLY, if the guy has short nails.  Really short.  I find long nails on men to be an instant turn-off regardless of whether or not they are painted. Ick ick ick.

No polish, ever. Drill King, I actually really like that skirt, so if your fashion sense sucks then mine does too. Definitely a summer/bare legs skirt, you can't really rock the carefree batik look when it requires heavy boots and a sweater. To do it justice, save it till summer and run around barefoot in it with any simple, solid color top you like. Does it have to ride up as high as you're wearing it in order to fit? I've always thought high-waisted things were for people without curve to pretend they had hips, you don't need the help.

IT doesn't have to, but it does ride a bit high. When I wear it lower it really makes my torso look way long, which is already pretty long, so I don't need that either.

However, I'm agreeing with you, it's definately summer, kinda bummed out, I haven't worn a skirt since I was a little girl.

Nail polish: I have seen it work well for some people.  I guess you have to have the right look for it and also team it with a decent enough outfit.

Andy: I actually like that first top, it's quite interesting.  The rest isn't really my taste, but the green skirt is not crap.

Drill King, I absolutely love love love that skirt.  I want it.  I think it is possible to get away with it in the summer, if you have nice heavy tights. 

Honestly, every time you post a picture, I want to raid your house and steal your clothes.  However, I don't know wear you live, and I'm not quite the breaking and entering type.   But if you're unfashionable, then I'm hopeless.
