what the french call "les incompetent"

I look like Mccaulley Caulkin in this picture:

pipettes shirt: gift. belt and shoes: thrifted. dress worn as skirt, necklaces, and jacket: childhood closet. tights: oh don't even pretend that you don't know

Thanks guys! I added the outfit details, I was kind of in a rush when I posted this but they're there now.

shutter bug-Cruella De Ville! I quite like that name for these baybays. I'll call em that from now on.

zoe-naw, dress! Yeah, Belle was definitely on my mind when I was cinching this. It shapeshifted all day though, I kept stealing people's scrunchies to tie it when it would fall.

Love the two tone tights - and the Macaulay Culkin inspiration. Have you seen 'the Macaulay Culkin Show' on Youtube? So hilarious.

Hannah Cheeto said...

Mccaulley Caulkin didn't look half as good as you. Those tights are so amazing, and so is the gathered skirt... and well the whole thing.

selinaoolala said...

love the details of the skirt, red and pink are the best combination too! also if you like macaulay culkin, have you heard of the film party monster? i would look at the trailer on youtube as i think you might like it, it's based on a totally true story of club kids in the 90's, and macaulay's character ends up in jail, as he is in real life now! their outfits are insane, check it out!

kokostiletto said...

Style-Rocker said...

glad you know how cool the culkin is always. great fucking actor.

fairy queen said...

hey, cool tights, like something out of the Chanel ad, but you stop them from looking like Anna Wintour trying to get in touch with the fashion youth.. . perfect.

FAIRY QUEEN XX

yoncto said...
