Anyway you needed to know about Nikos and Bobbi because I took advantage of the situation to also take outfit pics.
|pleas excuse the kinda weird picture of my feet and my mostly unpainted toenails. This was the only good picture I got of the shoes.|
I wouldn’t say this is my favorite skirt as a favorite denotes having being worn more than once. I bought this skirt last year at my favorite thrift store and it has been in my closet ever since. Luckily this challenge came along and I was able to finally debut it. It’s originally from forever 21 and kinda sorta fits me. In other words I believe you’re supposed to wear it around your natural waist but I hike it up to pretty much right under my bust and it fits. lol. Anyway since it sorta fit and I love the almost 50’s vibe it has I figured I’d shell out the cash for it. The outfit as a whole probably could use a belt and next time I wear it I’ll probably add one. The shirt is from target, I bought it last year in an attempt to grow my black clothes collection. I realized last year that I had absolutely no black shirts and needed to remedy this quickly. I am now the owner of two black shirts, progress. Anyway you can’t see it but the shirt has gold stitching around the neckline and gold sequin-y accents on the shoulder which coincidentally go fantastically with the skirt! I think people are generally pulled towards certain colors and though black usually isn’t the first color i gravitate towards teal/ turquoise is. Aside from this skirt and the shoes I’m wearing in this post I also have a turquoise purse, shorts and assorted other jewelry. Someday soon I’ll do a few posts on colors I’m drawn too and the items I’ve accumulated in those colors. Finally the shoes are an amazing pair I recently re-discovered and stole from my mom. They’re actually a bit big on me, I’m a 6.5 and they’re a 7.5/8, but I made a few extra holes and now they fit pretty well. I had been eying this pair of turquoise sandals from Karmaloop obsessively, but unfortunately $50.00 plus shipping is a little out of my price range at the moment. So, I was ecstatic when I found these babies while looking for a ball to throw for Nikos. They’re not the most supportive but aside from flip flops they’re really the only sandals I have and they’ll be in heavy rotation in my wardrobe from now until the end of summer. That’s all for Day 1, I’ll post Day 2 at some point this weekend. Until then have a great weekend!
