Black is the New Black — Me-Made-May ’12, Days 8 and 9
It’s been a hectic week so far, and not likely to let up anytime soon. My outfit on Tuesday:
Sweater: Target Mossimo
Tank top: Gap Outlet
Shorts: Me-made, Simplicity 1887, blogged about here
Socks: Hanes ankle
Shoes: Converse All-star double tongue with studs
If I were truly dressing up, I would have worn this outfit with sandals. However, there’s still a touch of chill in the air (particularly in the morning) and I was just running errands and hanging around the house so Converse were my choice. This outfit is a tad dressier than I wear for my day-to-day life, but part of doing Me-Made-May was changing up my style a bit. I still fall back on black when I’m rushed, though.
Today I wore this:
Top: Fangbanger t-shirt from Hot Topic (fans of True Blood will recognize this logo)
Bottom: me-made skirt, Simplicity 4963/0699, blogged about here
Socks: Gold Toe black crew
Shoes: Doc Martens 8-eye 1460 greasy black boots
If you’re paying attention, you’ll notice that I have two different skirts out of this fabric. It’s a stiff twill with skulls that I bought off Ebay (two yards of it). I got into a bidding war and paid slightly over $16 for the fabric, but I think I got my money’s worth. My hair is a mess here because I’ve been shoving it out of my face all day. I have some serious decluttering to do — as you can see — and have already pulled some books off the shelf and started a pile. At least I know what I’m doing tomorrow (sigh). Hopefully I can fit some sewing into the day also.
