Prodigal

7 Feb

I’m back!  It’s been hard getting back into the swing of school and work after a year-long hiatus, but I’m finally adjusting and finding time to blog again.

This skirt used to be a strapless dress.  I bought it for my high school’s Homecoming dance when I was a senior.   I never really loved it though, so I made some straps using extra material from the sash, but then I decided I’d rather turn it into a skirt so Megan helped me alter it and shorten it.  At first I was really timid about wearing something high-waisted, but now I’m converted.

blazer: from a thrift store, t-shirt: (gift) American Eagle, skirt: (modified) Forever 21, shoes: Target

By the way, I’m a dork:

    You’re also adorable. Could we make a portmanteau word: adorkable? I really like this outfit, btw.

      I’ve seen ‘adorkable’ around the interwebz. =D

        blah. and I’ve seen “sliced Shakespeare”, too. It’s either a case of great minds think alike, or someone has been sneaking into my brain at night and stealing my ideas before I can formulate them.

        probably the latter. mind thieves!

    Shannon I seriously covet your skirt. (Sinner!)

    Oh, I just thought of something… I know you may not be into that sort of thing, but if you tucked in the sash somehow, this outfit would also be really cute with a wide-ish belt!

    I also love how you’re about to walk on my lame, emo, post-college budget bed. Someone buy me a bed… please?

    Question: Why is there a little tiny picture of you on the browser tab for this site?? At least I think it’s you… it’s tiny.

      HAHAHA wow. shows you how (un)intelligent I am. NOT what I was trying to do, I’ll tell you that much. I’ll see if I can take it off. Or you can, since I’ve already proved my incompetence.

      • Megan February 10, 2010 at 5:02 pm #

        I didn’t set out to prove your incompetence! And I honestly have no idea how you did that. I love you, you make me laugh.
