Hit the ground [running]

Cupid Blouse - All Saints, ebay
Jeans - American Eagle, gifted
Boots - Fluevog, ebay
Cuffs - target (red), vintage (black)

I went full speed today. Met up with a classmate to help, ended up having lunch and coffee with her. It was actually a fun day even though we were doing work. I didn't get any sleep last night after receiving bad news about the move. It's apparently off the table now, but I am going down to my mom's anyway this weekend to help her out with setting everything up for living on her own. I was pretty upset (read: pissed), but I'm taking this blip in the plans and running with it. I'm too busy to let it slow me down.

I needed something comfortable, but dressed up enough to combat the bad night. This All Saints blouse was an ebay find (BIN, NWT). I'd been admiring it on the site, but was critical of the weird collar and large sleeve - the BIN price was really cheap so I snapped it up. In the end, the fit was incredible, and I liked the deconstructed collar. I even think it might be nice for layering in the future. Admittedly I liked it so much, I got the skirt (off their site) from the same colorway/design. I'm completely won over by their cut of clothing. It's nice to wear things cut to fit a body (at least my body).

I will still be leaving up the Shop My Closet/Swap My Closet page. The clothing will be there for another week or so, until I get around to heading by Goodwill for donation. The shoes will be available until I find a buyer or swapper interested. I figure a good purge is probably still a good idea.

  2. Aw man! I am so sorry to hear about the move. That's a major bummer, but you know that tired cliche--everything happens for a reason. I know it is hard to be disappointed though. Chin up! On the plus side, this top is killer! I love the collar!

  7. I meant to add that I hadn't heard of the designer before. The fit (of that shirt) is perfect for you.

  8. My first thought on seeing your outfit picture was how perfect it looks on you. I love, love the top. It is such a unique style. Just fab!
    Sorry about the move. It really is true that some things happen for a reason that is rarely apparent at the moment they happen. You are a good daughter and your mom is lucky to have you.

  9. Man, so sorry about the move. What a major bummer! All things happen for a reason, so something will come along :-)

    The collar on this top is stellar! What a fantastic piece!

  11. That sucks about the move, but good for you for taking it in stride!
    I love the shirt, but man, I don't think I could wear it. It lacks the symmetry and structure I need to keep my OCD brain from exploding. Yet another shirt I'll have to admire from afar!
