Clothes That Don’t Fit

Uncategorized June 30, 2015


Dress (open): Urban Outfitters | Cropped vest: Brandy Melville | Trousers: Aritzia | Sunglasses: Ray Ban | Purse: Miu Miu (its a hand-me-down / super old) | Arm band: Boohoo | Necklace: Fernweh

Hello…. people of the internet?

I know, I know. I missed last week. Even though the readership of this blog is considerably small, I still feel annoyed with myself if I don’t post every single Tuesday (I’ve only missed twice). However, not only was last week insane, but I also had no clue what to wear. Since I’m at home, my closet is mostly full of all my “rejects” that I didn’t take to the UK (meaning pieces that I think are hideous or too small).

Instead of completely writing off these items, I decided that this week, I’d give one reject a new life. The dress. Although it may look like a slightly oversized blouse, its actually a dress that’s far too short. Funny enough, I always discover that a dress is too short at the most inopportune times. Parties, windy days, dinners at grandma’s. The list goes on.

Thankfully, this Urban Outfitters dress is no ordinary dress. Button front anything means that it can be worn like a cardigan or an unbuttoned shirt. I paired it with these loose fit trousers to keep everything chilled, and the crop-top makes the layering look effortless and not awkward (like this sentence). Cropped things are convenient because they decrease fabric weight & allow you to wear more all at once.

As for the trainers, I’m still rocking the Vince slip-ons. They only leave my feet when I go to bed. Or take a shower. No lie.


Be sure to let me know how you repurpose your “rejects”. See you next week! ❤

Hello friends!

Of all the hangout spots in town, bookstores are always my #1 choice (being an English major and all). Even when I’m travelling, I naturally gravitate towards them — despite half the books not being in English.

In the future, one of my “life goals” is to have a library full of “leather bound books and rich mahogany” panelling. Just like the Anchorman quote. Judge me.

Going along with the “I read lots of books” post theme, I opted for plaid on plaid. I never thought they’d actually work together, but there’s something about it that’s very unstudied. Paradoxical too. Call it “collegiate grunge” if you will.  After great contemplation,  I decided that I actually liked this pairing. Let me know what you think in the comments!

P.S: I don’t always read picture books. But when I do, I read the Blue Horse.  The Blue Horse was cool. LOL.

As for the shoes, they need no explanation — but lately I’ve been pairing them with my old private school socks.  🙂 

Tell me: Where’s your favourite bookstore in the world?
