Outfit post

Aside: Please vote for me (April) in this fashion face-off battle! I'm in second place right now and really need votes! I'll love you forever!

I've been watching a lot of "My So Called Life" recently. Honestly, I was spurred to watch it by a Tavi Style Rookie post - and it turns out I love the series. The style on the show is rubbing off on me. I want to live in large plaid layers! Here is my "My So Called Life"-inspired outfit (without the crazy hair).

It's only natural I'm wearing two different legwear as my watching of "My So Called Life" is Tavi inspired, and Tavi did the mismatched legwear first. Ever. Okay, maybe not ever. But still.

Get the look:
Dress Layer - Free People Space Dye Slip - Buy at Revolve
Plaid Layer - Free People Tiger Eye Tunic - Buy at 6pm
Necklace - Lucky Brand - Buy on eBay
Leggings - I got both of these at ASOS on sale
Shoes - Steve Madden Zorba - Buy at Dr Jays or Bealls

studded shorts giveaway

Hey peeps! I found a pretty cool one-of-a-kind studded shorts giveaway. Check it out!

Outfit post

Time for an outfit post! It's been awhile since I've done an outfit post, and I hope you enjoy this one! This outfit was built around this fabulous bodysuit by Motel. I love the cosmic graphic!

Top: Motel bodysuit; Pants: 5|48; Shoes: Sam Edelman Lorissa; Necklace: Lucky Brand; Belt: Papaya with DIY rhinestones

Responses I received when I wore this outfit to school (all from different people):
"Love the colors!"
"Your belt looks like you won a championship."
"You look... ... ."
"I LOVE your pants!"
"I LOVE your necklace!"
"Wow." - honestly, I couldn't tell if this was a good, bad, or neutral response
"I can't even look at you, your belt is blinding me."

And, of course, this post wouldn't be complete without a couple really silly pictures!

If you like this outfit, please "like" it on facebook! please please please!
