Is this how an office manager dresses? It is when it’s my office! First official day in my new position, boom! Bought both this shirt and skirt last night as sort of a celebratory overspend at a trendy used clothing store in Studio City (Wasteland)
LOVE this skirt. It’s from Kat Von D whose makeup I already adore. I found out the shirt came form JCPenney so I imagine I probably spent more on it at Wasteland than it was retail, which is a little annoying but I love it so I figure if I was willing to spend it, it was worth the cost.
EDIT: Skirt is not Kat Von D at all, tag was a Wasteland tag accidentally attached to it (Maybe Macklemore was there popping tags). Skirt is Pamela Thomas for TW (Thomas Wylde I believe)
SECOND EDIT: HOLY Crap you guys! This skirt originally retailed for like $685. So I feel a lot better about that JCPenney t-shirt now. It was supposed to have a belt too but who cares!
I almost didn’t post a picture today because even though I’m still celebrating No Pants November, today’s look isn’t especially noteworthy for me because I’ve worn this look before and it’s pretty commonplace for me these days. Then I imagined how even four years ago, it would blow my mind to think of a day when I’d put on a dress in the morning and ever consider it business as usual. So that’s pretty awesome.
Will try to take a better picture later but I felt so good when I looked in the mirror I wanted to document it. Happy with the outfit, the accessories and the makeup.
Doing a basic but fun combo at The Daily Grind. Trying to take and more out and about shots.
Performed stand up during the Giggle N Grind burlesque show at the Improv Lab tonight hosted by Lucky Deluxe, so I felt I had to step my game up a little bit with some textured tights and some heels added to one of my favorite outfit combos.
It’s kind of a running joke that I’m often dressed up more than actual women on the shows I do, but tonight with burlesque dancers performing on the bill it was a rare show where the women actually were more decked out than me. Well, until about halfway through their sets when that started to change a bit.
Decided to lady it up tonight for a late dinner and drinks with a friend who is about to leave town for a month. Unfortunately this bathroom mirror self portrait is the best shot I have of my look for the night. Based on a request I promise to do an entry explaining my current technique for building that cleavage.
Continuing the trend of actually doing some posts this week, here’s an ensemble I put together tonight. I wore the skirt today to work but wore it with a black t-shirt and tennis shoes for a look that isn’t all that dissimilar to the one from this recent entry. After work I decided to dress it up a little, so I added the shirt in this picture, a tank from Charlotte Russe that I bought last fall. It is a little too flared at the bottom for me to wear it often because I think it widens my hips and doesn’t tend to layer well over skirts, but I liked how the cardigan sort of plays it down. The necklace is new, got that this week at Old Navy. Shoes are Toms.
I have worn a skirt now every day since friday. Interested now in making it sort of a game to see if I can keep it up and for how long. I didn’t post a picture of yesterday’s look but it was just my purple kilt with a black v-neck t-shirt which is a pretty common look for me.
