Because it's getting cold again, and because I've lost a little weight, I've been digging through some boxes of clothing pulling out things I haven't worn in a while. And I realized that sometimes my judgment in clothing has been considered...ah...questionable, by my friends. And even on occasion by myself. So, to remind myself that perhaps I should be less judgmental when it comes to other people's outfits, I'm posting a few things here. I should note that there were several additional shirts that are even more entertaining in real life but didn't photograph well, so you're stuck with these.
I actually like the fake kimona top. But the first time I wore it, my friend said, "Didn't you once make fun of me for wearing a pajama top out to eat?" And the second time I wore it, my other friends said, "Didn't you once make fun of someone else for wearing a pajama top out to eat?" So apparently the consensus of the rest of the world is that I should not be wear this outside my bedroom. I think the nicest not-compliment anyone gave it was "it doesn't really show any of your cleavage" - and that was from a straight woman.
I had a hard time getting a good picture of this skirt because it's one of those giant circle skirts. It's also olive green and covered in iridescent blue sequins. And it has bells in the tie at the waist, so that just in case people miss the light reflecting back at them off of your lower region, they'll be alerted by the sound to turn and look at you anyway.
Yes, I have worn this shirt in public.
And now for the pièce de résistance
. I bought this dress online and only discovered after it arrived that it shows my entire bra in the back. So I can't wear it unless I can find some kind of jacket or top that looks nice with it. And yes, you did read that sentence correctly.
I tried to take a picture of the hemline, which has all these tucked handkerchief flares, but it was impossible to take one without turning off the flash. I think the schizophrenic pattern kind of overwhelmed the camera.
While I was at it, I figured I'd get out the coat and photograph it, too. Yes, I do wear a blue fake fur coat. It replaced my purple velvet coat when places started getting rubbed in the velvet. Yes, I did wear a purple velvet coat.
Also, just because, I took a picture of my scarf collection. It's probably not nearly sparkly and colorful enough to make either Zachary or Sendhil happy.
I also just remembered that somewhere in one of the boxes, I have not one but two black-and-white striped tops. Shut up.
