the bare necessities are equal to songs about pee

Saturday's outfit. Yeesh, we're behind.


My bloomers are becoming my only solution for the cold weather. I have been wearing skirts and dresses way more than pants, simply because I like them better and I seriously own about 2 pairs of pants that qualify as actual pants and not shiny leggings, but my bloomers I thrifted in St. Marks are such a good way to keep me warm when the only thing covering my legs are tights. And they give volume, always a positive thing.
Also, I beat everyone in the history of ever in run-on sentences.

Saturday Caroline came over and we went to the Salvation Army. The first time I've been thrifting since the first week of September, methinks? Yeesh! I do declare my money was well-spent, though. Lace cardigan, pastel striped button-down, gray beaded sweater, crazy sequined dress, and a lace shirt.
A couple of these are for my blogger buddies (you know who you are *hug*) but I juuuuust miiiiiiight have to wear them myself first. Totally NOT SELFISH AT ALL, I'm just doing it to, you know, test them out...make sure they're good quality and warm and worthy of you and everything...you should THANK ME, really. I am being TOTEZ selfless and considerate here.

childhood closet top and velvet dress. gifted sweater and guitar strap (worn as belt). thrifted bloomers, pastel striped dress, and floral dr. martens. h&m tights. target brooch.

thanks for teaching me a new word today - bloomers :)
i also have black bloomers and i wear them way too often under dresses... "volume, always a positive thing".

aww, i've always wanted bloomers! ughhh

Heatherskies said...

Volume is not always a positive thing. Especially if you have hips made for child bearing and no other form of fat displacement upon your body. Then, volume would be quite unfortunate.

sheesh, i'm so jealous that you can pull off literally anything! you could wear a plastic bag and still look cool

& i love that lace shirt
& the bloomers

Oh my god, those are some great finds! Esp. the black celestial sequined number in the lower lefthand corner...!

BTW, I tagged you on the "6 Random Things" meme over on my blog....

Ooooh, I love the gray beaded sweater you scored! I also like your outfit, as per usual.

Amelia said...

I love the first picture--so funny.

That beaded sweater looks super-cool and sort of 50s.

mallorymike said...

I've been waiting for effin' ever for bloomers to come back into style! Every other trend has come back (including Victorian-style corsets, yay!), so why not bloomers? I may have to break down, and attempt to sew a pair of my own.

Love the blog! Ciao!

LAYDAY I LOVE YOUR NEW FREAKIN AWESOME BANNER. I WANNA MAKE ONE MYSELF

Nice and Shiny said...

The layering is awesome in this outfit, love the buckle belt!
Really good thrifting finds, my fave's the pastel stripey number.
Ah yes, and about the CDG coat you got. I hate you. Jelous doesn't begin to describe what I am feeling right now, although the rap was wicked and deserved a nice reward!

I haven't seen bloomers in SO LONG! Maybe in a play or something. Good work

Emlyn said...

The bloomers are a cute and practical touch, speaks volumes. (ohhoho, bad pun)
I think short denim bloomers would be cute for summer-I must make some.
I read your blog all the time, hope you don't mind if I link you.

peacelovestars said...

Bimbi284 said...

Oooooooohhhh....I love anything lace. That top you scored (bottom right) is SO right up my alley.
If only my SA had such things...

Oh my lord, I've wanted a pair of bloomers ever since The Sartorialist photographed some girl in them years ago, and I still haven't been able to get a pair.
