That’s Not Stardust On My Feet

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 9:35 pm

This blog is a true representation of what I’ve worn, the good with the bad; this is how I can have new outfits posted almost every day. 🙂  Luckily, I usually like what I’ve worn and believe me whenever I haven’t liked something I’ve said it.  I was not feeling 100% a couple of days last week, I did pull it together to a passable level but these looks could have used some tweaking.  On days I feel like this I still try to dress up, it helps me to feel healthier and have a better day, like it’s a waste of the outfit to not feel good.  This also works similarly on days maybe I am not looking forward to the day, I’ll wear colorful fun clothes to brighten my mood.  It’s funny, when I am feeling the most strong and positive I can dress so muted, see here, here and here.  I suppose it is that confidence requires no added color.

What determines how you dress?

Outfit One: Thrifted Plaid Blazer, Star Print Skirt and Mens Loafers.  Purple Shirt (not seen) and Long Fringed Scarf, Suzy Shier. The Bay Tights.

utfit Two: Thrifted Teal Sweater, Oatmeal Sweater Vest, Dark Teal Pants, Gold Belt and Mens Loafers.  Necklace; Keys from Le Chateau, Star, Gift.

    Mood, if I have enough time or not, if I have new clothes, all of that determines how I dress. I don’t dress as I want to all the time, but I will try to get better as life goes on…

    I second the above commenter. mood determines how i dress. it has been a pretty gloomy start of the year thus far so black has been a staple of mine. hopefully i’ll add colours soon. else, i’ll look like im mourning everyday. tsk.

    p/s: i love how you look in the thrifted zebra tunic!

    I completely agree with you. I usually go out of my way to make myself feel better through the choice of clothes I’ll wear that day. I know many girls, especially where I used to work, who felt the exact same way. It gives you that missing boost of confidence, just like you said.
    Unfortunately, I let (not always) weather be the predictor of what I will wear… I dream of living in a city where weather doesn’t change so drastically.
