Cardigan: American Eagle, ages ago
Belt: Forever 21
Earrings: Burlington Coat Factory
With this outfit I wanted to look nicer, but not like I was trying too hard so I paired the pencil skirt with boots and those earrings. I hope I impressed them...until I actually went to give my fingerprints and I had that manicure of red nails with one purple nail on each hand. Yeah, real professional looking. Not.
In other news, I discovered another store in Marquette, Curious Cargo, located on 3rd street. Sorry, there isn't a website to share. They sell pretty much vintage everything, with every corner stuffed full with little treasures from old doorknobs to books to clothing. I mostly went there for the clothing and was pleasantly surprised at the pretty reasonable prices. Some of the older clothing wasn't in the best condition, but there were many very nice pieces, particularly this pink dress that looked like something out of Mad Men (minus all the flounces those women wear. Crinolines? Is that what they are called? Whatever it is that makes the skirt flare and pouf out). Once I start working I will definitely be heading back for something. And then share it with you all!
Whelp, time is winding down to that first day of school and already I am thinking of what I will wear. Any ideas, suggestions, favorites of what any of you like to wear on the first day of school?
