So, it's Thursday already...
Getting near the end of the week! (Does anyone have great plans for the weekend? I have a fair amount of thesis-related work to do…) It feels like this week has been going really fast, though. I think that's because I have a thesis-related performance at the end of the month, so I know this month is going to pass FAR faster than I want it to! I still have quite a bit of design/coding work to do.
So, the outfit! I had two demos of my work at the lab today (one for a visiting professor, one for a company thinking of sponsoring the lab), so wanted to dress up a little bit. I wore this for demos/work/rehearsal.
This outfit includes something I’ve done quite a bit recently, which is wearing a white ruffled skirt under a dress or skirt that’s a little shorter than is comfortable (or than is warm!) for a bit more length and some interesting detail. I especially like it with a skirt or dress that’s fitted a bit more like a pencil skirt, because then the ruffles gather quite a bit at the bottom. On the other hand, I’m still debating what I think about the extra layers.
The necklace I got at a fair near my undergrad school. The man selling it tried to convince me it was real amber, but I knew better than that. Still probably paid a bit more than I should have, though. But I wear it on a regular basis, so…
The belt was one of my dollar-a-pound finds last weekend.
So, I'm a bit surprised I've kept this up for a few days already. It's interesting to see my mind working...outfits that seemed cute all day when I was wearing them suddenly feel a little frumpy when I go to post them here (and on Chictopia). I need to remember this is for the fun of it and for developing/improving my style, not for judging it right now. (Or for judging my body. No need for me to do that right now...though it's interesting that I look heavier to myself in pictures than in the mirror.)
