I was trying to think of an outfit post that I can shoot without freezing my bum off (it is winter, after all) and without it being completely black. So this was the best I could do – it’s not totally black, so that’s okay, right?
The outfit actually came about in a weird way. I’ve had this crop top from Mr Price since 2010 and I remember so vividly why I bought it – the crop top trend wasn’t so big yet but I really wanted one to wear with a skirt I had for the sole purpose of posting it on my Lookbook. I never really had the figure to wear it other than with high waisted clothing, so it’s been sitting in my closet… Until my parents went to London and my mom bought my sister a high waisted elastic knee-length pencil skirt (which is all the rage at the moment and it’s similar to this) in the same stripes as this top. But then my mom said I can’t have it so when I went to Mr Price, I got this striped bodycon skirt instead. Even though the stripes are in different directions, I thought it worked. The beanie was from a little stall in Fourways Mall and I’m wearing my Woolworths creepers again as seen in this post.
P.S. The necklace is actually from my mom’s handbag – I kept looking for a chain but when I saw the extendable strap for her clutch, I thought, ‘Why not?’. The chain actually brought out my inner ratchet circa Miley Cyrus We Can’t Stop meets 2 Chainz (because I appear to be wearing… two chains. Hehe.) And I sort of just went with it. Rocking some gang $ign$. Eating my chain. Hoodrat things. The beanie added to the vibe.
P.P.S. I recently just joined WhatIWear.com – it’s a fashion site similar to Lookbook where you can post your outfits, categorise them by trends with other bloggers/fashionistas, give Style Analyses on your outfits and other people’s outfits and just network! It’s a great site – check it out and be sure to follow me 🙂
P.P.P.S. Just have a good day, everyone 🙂
