012113: Mean Monday

I caught something ugly this weekend, and now I feel super sick. That’s just fantastic with my first midterm coming up this Friday. What do I do when I’m sick? Lay around in sweats? Oh no, sick days call for pencil skirts! One thing I can fake well is being confident; I do it so well that I believe it. Pencil skirts scream out confidence; it gives a woman’s body so much structure. In the spirit of being sick, I make myself feel good by looking good.

 Ladies and gents, pattern is your best friend! I’m digging the geometric look of not only the structure of the garments, but also the patterns. I love what the simple checkered skirt is doing–it looks so bazaar, just like how my body is feeling inside right now…eek.

My ten cents #2: MIX MATCHING IS OKAY! I used to be under the impression that you can only have either a patterned top with a solid bottom or vice versa. As long as the patterns are not fighting with each other, then the look should be fine. Also, MIX MATCH NEW AND OLD CLOTHES. Fashion trend comes and goes, and then comes back. The old is the new-new! (if that even makes sense)
