Everything Counts

November 15, 2011

I enjoy dressing in swamp tones, as is made apparent by this earth hued outfit I threw together yesterday (complete with scarab beetle necklace). Ever since I nixed my bad habit of spray tanning after senior year of high school (orange just isn’t a good everyday color for me), I’ve learned to embrace my pale post-summer complexion and as a result, consistently dress in rich, dark colors.

These J Brand jeans arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago and I’ve worn them half a dozen times ever since. While I normally only really wear black jeans, I was surprised by the versatility of this dark green pair. What’s even better is that with every pair sold, 100% of the net proceeds will be donated to City Year in their efforts to prevent high school dropouts. Had it not been for my high school experience I could still be frequenting the fake tanning salon and looking like an oompa loompa!

Most people complain about hand-me-downs. “Waah all I ever wore were my sisters hand-me-down dresses” “waaaaah, my parents always dressed me in my brother’s old jeans” “wah wah waaaaah”. What a bunch of cry babies.

Having grown up with two older brothers, I got some of the coolest hand-me-downs ever! T-shirts with dinosaurs and planets on them, little boy blazers, neon green sweatpants…ok, well maybe the sweatpants are a bad example. Either way, I loved my brothers hand-me-downs, in fact I’d still like them to pass along some stuff to me, like this well worn Rolling Stones Tour tee I’ve been coveting for years! decades! centuries! You get the picture.

Now, you’re probably assuming that I’m wearing a bunch of hand-me-downs in this outfit post. I’m not. However!, I am wearing boys clothing which is close enough for me. I bought this button down in the little boys section of Gap Kids and I got my shorts from the mens section of Buffalo Exchange and then cut them to make them a little more feminine. Baggy, knee-length denim shorts just aren’t my thing….

All in all, sometimes it’s fun to shop on the other side of the wall.
