i can’t believe it’s been over a week since i’ve done an outfit post, but you know how it goes! this past week i was hibernating, feeling sick or on the verge of being sick or else just overwhelmed by school papers and final projects. and i was busy getting together etsy listings and working on behind-the-scenes blog stuffs and living in this cashmere cardigan.
anyway, i purchased this lovely dress from anabelle rose vintage on etsy a while back, but the hem is quite long in a most unflattering way. and since my skills with circle skirts aren’t so great, i decided to pin it up, which is something i have never done before, but have admired on other bloggers many times. i don’t know exactly who to credit for the inspiration since i’ve seen several bloggers do this before. most recently on the owls are not what they seem and the clothes horse, but also seen on the likes of style rookie and cocorosa, to name a few.
and so this pretty little coco avant chanel-inspired dress took a turn towards grunge and gave me an opportunity to wear these vintage justin boots that i bought last winter and hardly ever wore. i suppose my age isn’t any secret, but it’s kinda silly to remember when grunge was cool the first time around. i still have a pair of forest green doc martens that i got in the 7th grade. and i’m pretty sure i still want a mohair cardigan.
