    I only like bugs when they’re turquoise and big enough to sit on.

     Don’t forget, I’m changing my url on Friday. Everything stays here, but you’ll have to re-bookmark me, or type in eccentricowl.wordpress.com, as I can’t afford to buy the automatic redirect package.   Details: Cardigan($5), Target; Shirt($6), New York&Co.; Skirt ($12.97), thrifted (Forever 21); Shoes ($10), Walmart; Approximate outfit cost: $33.97  I don’t have much to say today. My mom and I went to the fabric store, and I got a beautiful pattern… but every single fabric I wanted to use didn’t have enough. I suck at picking out good fabrics. And then we went to my favorite restaurant and ate this: I love gyros. They are without a doubt my favorite food.Ever.…

    30 for 30

    Allrighty! So tomorrow I start my 30 for 30 challenge. I have been anticipating this for a WEEK, and I’ve been so very tempted to do 2 challenges at once, but… I restrained myself. And since today ends the Alphabet of Color challenge, tomorrow begins the 30 for 30! I’ve quit adjusting my list of clothes, and I  now have no choice but to stick to the items listed below. I’m excited to begin! I’ve listed where I bought things and the approximate price– when I could remember it–, so you can see how much I love Target and thrift stores… and just how cheap I really am. 😉 Did…

    These are a few of my favorite things

    There was a really lovely breeze yesterday, so I decided to haul some of my favorite wardrobe pieces and accessories outside to take some pictures and share with you a few of my favorite things. Found at an antique store for $12. I’m afraid to wear it. It’s really delicate. Found at Goodwill for like… $7. I never wear this, either. It’s good for photoshoots, though. Given to me by my bride-friend for being in her wedding. Authentic 1940’s cocktail dress. I looove it. I have yet to wear it anywhere. Goodwill. $15. Local thrift store. $5… or maybe, maybe $6. This was… seven or eight dollars? Goodwill… again. Vintage…

    Packing

    My general vacation packing routine usually consists of throwing anything and everything that catches my eye into my suitcase the night before I leave. Usually, I haven’t worked out whether anything goes together, I just grab my favorites and the basics and shove them in. But because I’ve been reading WhatIWore and seeing all of her wonderful outfit concoctions, I made a rule. Nothing goes in my suitcase- aside from my staple dresses- that cannot make at least two outfits, preferably three. No random grabbing. My dresses, I wear anywhere and everywhere. I know they’re versatile and I’ll wear them a lot since the weather will be hot, so they’re…

    From My Closet

    I went shopping today; I needed to spend the $50 dollar Target gift card someone gave me for my birthday, and after watching What Not To Wear and browsing a few fashion blogs, I decided to up and go see if Target had any good shirts or accessories. I bought two dresses on my birthday, so I sort of banned myself from buying more. I have enough dresses. And… since I very much adore the things I bought- this shirt in particular- I thought I’d do a little fashion post. I’ve always wanted to do a daily or every-other-day fashion post, but… I don’t exactly love pictures of myself right…
