I could have just called this post “A Few of my Favorite Things!” I'm such a sucker for plaid flannel shirts, it's the college grunge Eddie Vedder obsessed gal inside still getting her sartorial moment in the sun. This skirt I've had for a few years now and love it; I'll wear it now with bare legs and come winter I'll wear it with tights as I did here last winter. These shoes… well if you've been reading for a while you know I've been rocking them (and replacement pairs) since 2010, first seen in this post. The bag is a new purchase I mentioned here and adore, and oversized Ray-Ban aviators have become my signature sunglasses (and Karl's too, we share pairs!).

    Proprotions are all wrong. Please look up Fibonacci Number and it’s applications in dressing you body. As it is, it look very boxy, chubby, square, and un-elegant.
    Yours truly, banned and honoured by it 😉

      Sophie, I banned you because you were being rude to my reader who wrote in for advice and encouraging argument in my comments. You have a right to your opinion, but this is still my space and I have the right to make it a comfortable place for my readers. And if you’re so desperate to share your thoughts to make multiple email addresses and seek out new IP addresses I worry about you and lack of hobbies and friends in your real life. I understand hate reading blogs, I’ve done it myself in the past, and I can see how my refusal to stick to fashion that slims and lengthens my figure can frustrate you. I’m not going to disagree with you, this isn’t whittling my waist or elongating my legs and the last description I had in mind when dressing this day (or most days) is elegant. But women have spent far too long hating their bodies and hating fashion because of strict rules and, pardon my French, I’m FUCKING OVER IT nad I’m not going to support those rules any longer. I’ve hated myself and hated how my body doesn’t fit a certain ideal for too damn long and now I dress for me. And it’s okay for you to not like it, it’s okay to stay up all night on message boards with strangers discussing my feet and going to libraries to log in on other IP addresses to tell me how I am wrong. But when you start up with my readers, you will be banned.

        Whoa! Go, Allie. I’m with you 100% on your refusal to give in to hateful comments. I recall a while back that you had traced an IP address to someone that continuously posted nasty, and mean comments that incited not only you, but many of us loyal readers. So glad you can ban and block.
        I may not be a fan of plaid, but I love, love, love leather and you have stirred that desire to wear it again within my wardrobe choices. Many thanks!

        If you use a mobile hotspot to connect to the internet via your smartphone, every time you turn on the hotspot you will get a different IP address.

        That being said, I agree with you 100%.

    I had to comment just to tell you that “it’s the college grunge Eddie Vedder obsessed gal inside still getting her sartorial moment in the sun” really tickled me. Looking good!

      Thanks! And the grown up exterior Allie… well she’s still a bit Eddie obsessed 😉
