Another Outfit...

Solanah mentioned the other day how she thinks of things to blog about through the day but when she gets home all she can think of is 'here's what I wore today.' Well, I have to admit, I feel the same. Only, here's what I wore on Wednesday when I just had to go out and buy Disney's Snow White on DVD:

Outfit details: scarf - hand-me-down (or, rather, I claimed it as my own) from mum; blouse - church op-shop; vest - Valley Girl; trousers - Target; shoes - a shoe store somewhere near Melbourne.

This is what I like to 'do' to my hair when I can't be bothered doing anything - hide almost all of it under a head scarf and add some faux bangs to the mix (which I used to do to the side, without a rat). It still looks vintage (a little bit of land girl chic, perhaps) and is dead easy to do for lazy ladies like myself.

These are actually the only full length pants I own - I'm not terribly keen on trousers on myself but there are just some days that I can't be bothered putting on stockings, etc. so wearing a dress seems like a chore. Plus, they're good for my dance lessons! (For anyone who's interested, I started Lindy Hop the other night and was absolutely terrified but had fun, anyway).

Oh, also, one of my LiveJournal friends has started a fashion blog - à l'allure garçonnière. I'm really excited about it; if you want to find out what it's all going to be about read her post entitled 'why we need feminist fashion blogs' because I don't want to try to explain myself.

Love,
Andi B. Goode

  11. Inspiring as always, you manage to look vintage and feminine even wearing black trousers and a common white blouse! Gah, I hate you! :)

    Your hair are gorgeous. Do you use some kind of tool or the bangs are just wrapped on themselves?
