pretty sure everyone in gym class thinks em and i are crazy stoned hippies: "what if there was an anarchist planet where everything was made of fur"

I thrifted this skirt the other day and had to put it with my colored harlequin tights this morning. It is the ultimate formula for feeling like a clown and blinding people.
OH, imagine it with the optical illusion tights...omg eyesore omg revenge on school people omg iamwaytoospitefultobe12 omg.
The shirt is a hand-me-down from Esther, worn backwards but I prefer it that way because the zipper is so pretty. I would like to try and emulate Christopher Kane with it...christopher kane spring 2007 via style.com

I've decided that when I feel uninspired I'll look at weheartit instead of magazines or runway, because I always find a new artist or architect or photographer that blows my mind when I browse that place and for me the best inspiration for dressing is art itself.
That and cartoons. No seriously, try dressing like Dexter or something. It feels so liberating.

I was going to order the optical illusion tights a day before you did your first post with them, but then I got intimidated.
And I know this totally isn't my place and many people will disagree with me, but I would be so sad if you really did become a stoner when you got farther into your teens ):
That said, beautifully done yet again!

oh my god, that skirt. It's like everything good in this world, and many others most certaintly
^i'm pretty sure that sentence right there is teeming with grammatical infractures, but we can ignore those...
It reminds of gareth pugh, and takashi murikami, but that could just be the colors...

David Casavant said...

Yum, channeling Kane is always a good thing. I love that top!

Shoulda gone for the optical illusion tights, it's great blinding people with the power of clothing. I've blinded one of my English proffesors with my shiny disco shoes... love it

Chanelling non-runway inspirations is the greatest thing ever. I read a vampire book a week ago and haven't wanted to wear anything but black ever since :D

And I'm definitely a fan of the harlequin tights!

I love your colored tights! They're so eyecatching. I also love the way you wore your shirts backwards, it completely changes the look. Great idea!

cuteseas said...

i like the tights and skirt together!

Ashley said...

too great!
the patterns are fantastic

Huong said...

I think you're unique and very cute! you're not crazy like you think your gym class would think:0)

Style Magnet; Sara said...

I totally agree on dressing like cartoon characters. I mean, Eloise at the Plaza Hotel? The Sandman from the comic book series? Kim Possible? A Powerpuff girl? Minnie Mouse? SO MUCH FUN.

Eloise said...

wow-awesome outfit today! i wish i had those tights!

the factory said...

hey, I am getting addicted to checking your blog, everytime I want to leave a coment I forget, but in this post you mentioned something about an anarchist planet where everything was made out of fur, and it reminded me of a very silly tv show here in méxico ( but it really is funny ) about a familly obssesed with felt, stuffed clothes, everything in the show is made out of felt of fur.

Love the harlequin. I dug out my christopher kane for topshop dress last night, and wore it out for dinner. I still love the neon zip.

the zipper is so thick and heavy in comparison to the silk, it just has to be shown!
