Just like a macaroon






Blazer: Vintage (my grandma's from the 60's). Top: Bought at a battle of the bands . Belt: Thrifted. Skirt: Gift. Shoes: Thrifted. Socks: Target.

So this was my outfit for part of yesterday. I've sort of slipped back into grunge even though the fashion world is going back into over the top Edward Scissorhands pastels. I still am a bit of a pastel girl. I fawned over Louis Vuitton's SS12 collection just as much as the next person (i mean seriously pastels and lace peter pan collars?!) But lately I guess I kind of look like a mix between some drugged college professor and some kid from the 90's. What can I say? My style is always evolving. Who knows what I'll be interested in next.

p.s I picked the giveaway winners so if I contacted you please respond.

I *love* this look, though! So refreshing to see it after girls wearing the same dress from Topshop with their ombre'd hair or whatever. I love love love this outfit.

Your blazer is the most beatiful thing! It really makes the outfit, even though I don't really know what that means....
Oh! And I was looks through some of my grandparent old photos, from when hey were teenagers, and I'm pretty sure my grandma had that exact some skirt in one of them!

that is pretty much the best way to wear a band tshirt! I feel like people waste them when they just wear them with jeans. The way you've put your outfit together, it brings a little bit of pop-culturish cool into the mix! i love it (:

This is so funny -- when I first visited mouse's blog, I asked her the exact same question you did about Lady Sovereign. (She said yes it is a reference to SOV.)

Nice blog!

@claire: haha the blazer waS actually the blazer my grandma wore to my uncle's bar mitzvah in the 60's so it's amazing.
@sedgwick: it's not actually a band shirt, one of the bands was selling fixed up goodwill shirts.

I LOVE your talent for mixing prints Roma! That blazer really is a treasure *_*

Macaroon? What macaroon? ;)

Love the outfit as usual. I've been jealous of that skirt a long while. I like grungy 90s, it's a good look! In a grungy way. I want to be more grungy now... Well there you go- you just inspired someone. ^^

The jacket/blazer too, is epic. I love grandmas clothes. I just got the most cold-war-design belt from my Nan. Love it!

You look so cool! I like your little 'I fight like a grrrl' note in the background xxx

YAY FOR GRUNGE! I can undoubtedly say that's my favorite style. It took me a while to discover it, but its called me, and I answered! Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate ALL styles.. Lolita, Minimalism, 70's, Cyber-goth, aaaaall of them.

I love this outfit.

Adorable outfit! I love the jacket :)

Flow Disruption said...

Um, I'm pretty jealous of this skirt as well. ;) And that awesome poster of Godzilla in the background!

PS - How did Butch turn out? I'll send you an email tomorrow and let you know my new address. :)

I always like blogs way more if they take their outift pictures in their bedroom. I don't know why, I guess it feels more personal and I love your bedroom. Is it creepy that I noticed the "I fight like a grrl" poster?
But anyway... omg omg omg your jacket! This whole outfit! Perfect!

Oh man I absolutely love the mix of that grunge-y outfit with that beautiful beautiful delicate blazer!
