Kickin' it straight up bag lady, today. Frumptastic. ^_^ Don't get me wrong, I love this oversized brown coat, but I still call it my "bag lady coat," because it has a hobo vibe. I'm surprised it didn't come with a shopping cart. Heh. Anyway, as you can see, it f*cking snowed. >_< Yep! Winter is here, apparently. Well, I refuse to acknowledge its presence until Winter Solstice, so I wear earth tones in defiance.
Anyway, don't let the bright photos fool you. Yes, it was around 4:00 PM when these photos were taken, but the sun was setting and darkness began its inevitable descent. This would have been a much nicer photo if it hadn't been overcast. The purple and pink empyrean and sunlight peeking through the bare trees would have given this outfit a more romantic vintage feel. Instead you get a sea of white and the ferocious headlights of passing cars. Sorry! Haha. Headlights at 4:00 PM? Damn, you Winter.
Admittedly, my partner and I spent way too much time having lunch. We woke up really late, rolled out of bed and traveled a couple blocks to a cozy tavern. It's the kind of place where the wait staff treat you like an old friend, the dining room is dimly lit and there's a steady buzz of conversation. No one really looks your way or bothers you. As you can imagine, we love being there. So, when our server asked if we wanted our coffee topped off and we had been there for two hours, of course we said 'yes' and asked for a raisin danish, too. It wasn't until I was halfway through my coffee that I looked out of a window, saw the headlights of passing cars and thought...'maybe I should take a picture of what I'm wearing now? If we stay here any longer, that ship will sail.' Haha. And so here we are. ^_^ <3
I'm wearing a completely remixed outfit. You last saw the vintage yellow cardigan here, the carrot orange pleated skirt here and the wonderful vintage Jack Winter sweater here. Incidentally, the last time I wore the Jack Winter, there was snow on the ground. So, way to come full circle, I guess. Hehe.
