This is what I wore on the day of Christmas Eve (when will I EVER post an outfit on the day I wore it again?) during shopping and wrapping and stuff.
I was expecting stores to be busy but they weren't. I felt like the only idiot that had waited til last minute and it was frustrating. A worker at Borders said to me, "So what, are you like, gothic?"
**Please note, MOST PERFECT SKIRT POUF EVER. This $4 crinoline is an all-time wardrobe favorite. Snookie would be proud.
Anyway, this was one of those outfits that went in a completely different direction than what I wanted to do initially. First I wanted to be a gothic (ding ding ding, Borders person) Circus freak -- crinoline, lace, sheer diamond-patterned button-down -- then I felt like wearing the ribcage Rodarte for Target dress and figured it was circusy enough because of the sequins, then I realized it would be perfect with these freaky reflective eye sunglasses I bought a few weeks ago at a joke shop. So then the outfit got like...sciency. Or something. Go x-rays.
I love these sunglasses, they make me feel like a reptile Madonna.
