After seeing countless girls in the blogosphere rocking their plaid schoolgirl skirts, I knew I had to give mine a go again. How I got this is actually quite a cute story: back in highschool, when I was 14, I was a punk and showed up for class in red plaid pants with chaings hanging from them and had safetypins through my ears. Anyway, one time I showed up dressed like that for one of our artclasses, and our teacher loved my getup and she told me she used to dress the same way back when punk was just starting to develop in Belgium, when she was a young girl. I found it quite awesome to imagine our teachers being young, rebellious and hip, but I loved her even more the next week when she brought me this mini skirt. She’d made it herself way back when, and her daughter didn’t want it so she gave it to me! I wore it all the time back in highschool when Britney made mid rif baring fashion happening, but right now I feel like it is really a MICRO mini skirt, and I prefer my stuff high waisted (this one is extremely low waisted if you want your bum to be covered). I still love it though, so yanking it down and wearing it with a longer top so as to cover the fact that I am really wearing this skirt EXTREMELY low makes it work, sort of, right? This is probably the oldest piece of clothing I own, and my very first piece of vintage.
Do you have any nice stories attached to your clothes?
The coat is one of my recent purchases (bought it this summer and couldn’t wait to wear it when it got cold), and I love how I got it for so little money because I bought it at my summer job’s store and we always get a percentage off, because it looks so much more expensive than it was. Such a classic coat with nice detailing, and I needed a shorter coat because all my other winter coats are mid thigh or knee length.
In contrast to yesterday’s outfit, I really love today’s outfit. Simple, classic, fun and “me”. I love fashion most of all when the outfit you’re wearing isn’t all “hey look at me, I’m fashionable”, but the style is more timeless and in the details. Tights always are a great way to add interest to a look: this outfit would’ve been dull with simple black tights.
On my personal life: I am practically dying because I have so much work for uni right now, I don’t think I will be able to finish it without working on it 24/7. Like really, it is just too much work to get done before the deadline, I’m not even exaggerating. I have never had issues with time or timing, but this one is effing me up. Because I have to work that much and need to concentrate, I asked my boyfriend not to put music or the tv (he doesn’t even watch, he just likes the background noise) on because it would distract me, and he got all pissy because he can’t do whatever he wants in his own living room (yeah, whenever we have a fight he reverbs to 6yo mindset), and I expect an apology from him but since he hates apologizing, I might as well wait until I weigh a pound, as we say in Holland :D
I’m going to start working on my task now. Sigh.
