Another look from February and this one was particularly a favorite, because I loved my entire outfit: the jacket is from Zara Woman (it totally reminds me of Project Runway creations, well, the good ones anyway) is super quirky and thus I totally love it; the dress (also Zara Woman) is super short so that also seems to work for me haha. The quilted chain detail bag (Mango) is one of my favorites and currently I am waiting on an eBay purchase of this same bag, yup, I love it so much I repurchased it. But you know me and it’s always about the shoes. The shoes, my goodness, the shoes. I had wanted these Iron Fist Leopard print “Lounge Days” wedge shoes for ages and then they were sold out and I thought I’d never have them but luckily my Iron Fist store restocked them (I’m hoping the same thing will happen with the “Buns’n’Roses” shoes I’m currently lusting after) and I actually managed to buy these in the sales!
Continuing with my green obsession I wore my current favorite bag with a very casual outfit on Sunday to go to lunch. (I’ve kept on wearing the bag this whole week too but I’m taking a different bag to go to the movies tonight*)
I promised you this outfit post yesterday so here it is. So, this is what I wore on Monday night to go see the new X-men movie (which was pretty brilliant but I am definitely bias as I am a fan of the series). I was feeling really burnt out on Monday (after writing my thesis I was completely drained) so I look quite tired in these photos. As for my outfit, I dressed according to my shoes:
So, in the last four days I wrote my thesis paper. Yes, you read that right. It has hell, it was four days of absolute stress, four days of reading so many papers that all words just lost all their meaning. Frustration, depression, anger. It also was four days when I fell in love with Pride and Prejudice all over again. Reading Austen, or well, reading about reading Austen, has shown me that there is so much more to the novel than meets the eye when you read it for the first time. However, some opinions are just wacko. I wish I could have used that sentence in my paper haha. It was an interesting experience but I must say, I hate the academic style of writing (both reading academic papers and trying to write them). I felt as pretentious as Lady Catherine. One of the funniest parts was when I had too much written M used a Project Runway quote on me (“Use your editing eye.”) He was also a sweetheart, helping me figure out how to make footnotes go from number one in each chapter. Anyways, I spent the whole weekend ball and chained to my computer and didn’t leave the flat save for walking the pig, but I did go out to dinner on Friday night and here’s what I wore.
So here I am on this absolutely beautiful sunny day writing this post that will appear tomorrow about what I wore over the weekend while it was perpetually raining and now it’s lovely out and I’m stuck indoors while I’m getting ready for my exam which is tomorrow. Why does it always have to rain during the weekend?
Okay, so it’s not a full week, but I was so excited about it that I couldn’t wait to show you the new feature on this blog. Once in a while I’ll do a week of specific shoes: red shoes, green shoes, Melissa shoes, you get the idea. Anything that there’s enough of in my collection to wear for one week straight without repeating shoes. Though obviously I cheated here – not only is this not a full week but I did wear other pairs of shoes as well. I’ll get to that in a moment. But first, let’s take a look at the shoes:
