Fashion

I don’t ride bikes. I just knock them over.

 I keep forgetting: I’m going to finally change my blog’s url to eccentricowl.wordpress.com. And I am going to do it tomorrow. SO. Everything will stay here, but if you’ve bookmarked me, you’ll have to re-bookmark me as I can’t afford to buy the automatic-blog-redirect package.  Details: Dress($8) and brooch ($2.99), thrifted; Shoes($12.98), Target
Approximate outfit cost:  $23.97

This dress is a dress I bought when I was going through a slightly rebellious phase. You see, I was raised to be fairly conservative and decent in the way I dress (and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that), and I went through a phase a couple of years ago where I was pushing the boundaries of what I could get away with. I was not around my family at the time– I’d taken a month’s vacation to visit a friend in another state– and I bought this dress thinking “I bet mom’s going to say something about the back.”

Disappointingly (because then there’s no drama to relate to you), she didn’t say anything.

And now it just makes me feel scandalous because there are certain garments that can’t be worn underneath it.

And even now, after having mom’s approval of the dress (yes, I’m 23 and I still look to my mother for advice. Shocking, I know.), I tend to pick and choose where I wear this.

It’s definitely not something I would wear around my skirts-to-the-ankles-and-shirts-buttoned-up-to-the-neck cousins. I love them to death, but I think my uncle would have a heart attack if I wore this over there.

So I generally keep it for those days where it’s so hot I really wish I were a boy (or a five year old. Amazing how similar those two can be…) so I didn’t have to wear shirts.


(Secret: I took this picture as I was falling over. I know. I am that good.)

I’ve finally decided to make use of my Bloglovin’ account– before, I’d bookmarked all of my favorite fashion blogs, and since I’ve been finding SO many good ones (a blogs-I-love post will probably be coming up soon), I figured I should see how well Bloglovin’ works.

Better than I expected.

I don’t know why it took me a full year to utilize Bloglovin’. Seriously. Why am I so slow?

Don’t answer that.

I hope you are all having a beautiful Wednesday!
