I recently scored another haul at the local Goodwill, thanks to my fabulous friend and unofficial personal shopper, Nina, also known as Ninja. Wait, am I actually going to show you what I got for once? Yup, you got it. In a fit of wanting-to-wear-new-clothes-dom, I decided to wear a new item every day this week. To start off…
I never would have picked out this skirt if it weren’t for Ninja. It looks much too small when it’s hanging on a rack, but once I put it on, I found that it didn’t squeeze my chub like I expected it to. The waist is a tall piece of fabric that folds over perfectly into a faux belt, which makes it cute and versatile. Win win! I also really like the polka dotted shirt. It makes me want to get a yellow cardigan to wear over it. Yes, just yellow.
How much do I love this outfit? THIS much:
Why, yes, my hair color IS different! Why, yes, you CAN’T tell! I dyed it on Tuesday night to a strawberry blonde color that I’m not so sure about yet. I’m getting used to it, but I’m probably going to add red lowlights to give it some more dimension. Why, yes, my outfit DOES look fantastic against that red wall! I asked my friend to take the shot after we had din-din. The wall was lucky happenstance. Why, yes, I AM looking super awkward! This was in public outside of the restaurant. And I like awkward shots.
Yup, I wore the same shoes pretty much all week. Why? Because I made the mistake of killing my feet earlier this week and those were the lowest heels I have. And these outfits clearly required heels. My poor feetsies. The pain I put you through. Anyway, this shirt is quite cute when it’s on, but has a dangerously low neckline, as is not evidenced in the above picture. But it worked.
I don’t actually love this outfit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay – I just think I could have done a better job with pairing this cardigan. It’s a small, too, so it’s a bit tricky for it to look as good. But it looked okay on the day of.
So there you have it. Many new finds, thanks to the lovely Ninja. Now I’m off to go eat my all of my Weight Watchers points at SmashBurger and see The Cabin in the Woods. Will that be my April movie review? Wait and see, ninjas. Wait and see.
