in a funk
So this dress is weird. It's a totally different shape than anything else I own, and the material is a weird, thick, slipper velour kind of thing. It was only $9 at joe fresh a few months ago, and I was drawn to the long sleeves, lush texture, and overall drapeyness. I'm not sure how I feel about it after wearing it and taking photos and all- the shape isn't the most flattering thing in the world, but then again, I kind of like feeling lost in things sometimes- but somehow after looking at these photos I feel like I don't look lost enough for the look I was imagining. ...maybe I need to style it a few more ways- I imagined it downplayed with a hat and boots when I was at the store. Maybe I'll try that next time. I really like these tights and shoes though. I'm just kind of feeling 'meh' about the oufit as a whole- maybe it's too many dressyish things together without anything casual thrown in? Also, I feel like I'm channeling Halle Berry from The Flinstones...
Today I finished my first knitting project: a book cover for my sister's birthday. pretty pumped about accomplishing that little goal of mine. I am now learning to crochet also and have started a scarf because all that entails is just keep stitching and stitching till you feel like it. baby steps for me!
dress- joe fresh
