P.S. I Don’t Like This Outfit

Tuesday 25 Jan 2011

Okay: first, two questions.

  1. Is my page loading annoyingly slow?
  2. Is my favicon working for you?

I think my theme is too fussy as well, I’m going to try to streamline so again, beware the possible CSS throwing up all over the page.

Also, Lyddie from Chic on the Cheap has declared it yellow week.  (But I’m wearing red on Friday to raise awareness for heart disease for a style blogger Go Red For Women, organized by Andie.)  I’m totally wearing yellow tomorrow, I would have today except I never actually got dressed.  Ice storms and all, you know.  If we get enough ice tonight I might really skate on the street tomorrow, I haven’t done that in years.

So I really really don’t like this outfit, I almost didn’t post it.  I just… don’t like it.  I don’t know if the proportions are off, or I don’t really like the colors… it’s just… eh.  Okay, not great, not even really styled, just…  I don’t even know why I don’t like it, just that I really really really don’t.  They liked it at the endodontist though, told me I should go into fashion.  I wish I was still living in Japan, dental work is so much more affordable there.    I kind of want to fly back to get a crown, it would only be marginally more expensive and I would get a trip out of it.  If I didn’t go shopping I would just about break even, maybe $100 more.  Or I could just forego the crown and never use my left teeth again?

If you haven’t noticed I’ve been in a bit of a style slump lately (at least I feel like it) for practically all of January.  Inspire me?  What has been inspiring you lately?

I wish you more inspiration than I have as you finish out the week!



Moth (Anthropologie) open cardigan, Free People dress (super cheapie from Rue La La, the FP sales are amazing when the good stuff isn’t already sold out), HUE tights, Jeffrey Campbell boots.

    Really? You don’t like this outfit? I *love* it. The layering is really interesting, the boots give it a nice wintry and vintage feel … this whole look really works, IMO.

      Thank you! I do like the boots with the dress, maybe I’ll try again in the spring. I can’t tell you why I don’t like it as a whole though, it’s totally unreasonable. I just don’t? I guess it’s just not one of my favorites.

    I totally get your style slump (hence the need to create a theme week, haha) and I while I LOVE the dress, I think some summer dresses just need to stay in the summer and be unencumbered by cardigans and tights and snow boots.

    So, if you go to Japan, take me with you?

    • says

      Yeah I’m going to try again in the spring with the boots and dress, I think it could work in warmer weather. I’ll definitely take you if I go, you’ll be totally saved because I speak okay Japanese, used to be a lot better but I haven’t been since 2008!

    I can definitely relate to the winter slump…but spring is around the corner, despite the snow!

    Whenever I need some inspiration, I peruse the runway for the current season on Style.com or read some blogs. I also get a a lot of inspiration from watching old movies. Maybe do a little of each to get your inspiration going?

      Ugh, maybe for you spring is soon (my cousins both work in D.C.), lucky! But I’m on almost the exact same latitude as New York and right now I kind of feel like there’s no end in sight, snow on Sat, Mon, and Tues. I’ll dig up some old Grace Kelly films if I get another snow day!!
