Ahh, the good old days...

I was browsing through some of my friends' old facebook pictures, and I found this one, taken at a cast party during my freshmen year.

Say what you will about this outfit, I'm proud of it. Freshmen year, when most people are trying their hardest to look like everyone else, here I was with my silly hodge podges of layer, color and fabric. And yes, the eyeshadow matching the leggings may be a bit much, but one learns from experience, right? And while these days my outfits have gone in a more "sweater-vest and glasses clad nerd girl" direction (I'm trying to avoid the use of "geek chic" here because it upsets my dear friend Camille), I think I'm still evoking that "don't put ME in the corner" attitude.

Speaking of sweater vests and glasses, I've been meaning to post some pictures of what I've been wearing lately, so here goes.

Silly me! My stripey sweater makes me blend right in with those colorful calandars on the wall behind me. I really liked this outfit because

a) It was comfy and warm


b) The day that i wore ended up being one of the best days I've had this school year, and I'm having a fun year, so that says something.

This "dress" I'm wearing is actually a rather long knit skirt I inherited from my Great Grandmother. Pulling it up and belting it created a nice, swingy effect. Plus, because the fabric was so thick, it was nice and warm. It was an all-around fun wear.
