the pied piper of hamelin

Plinko totally planned that photobomb.

Forever 21 faux collar top, Target cardigan, vintage Versace pants, Five Below sunglasses and vintage loafers. 

It may look as though I was trying to be artsy during this photo session, but honestly it was because it was the only way to get clear photos with my self-timer. I fumbled around for a half hour trying to get a good set up and ended up with this. Came out better than I thought.

Since I've been wearing nothing of note lately, on my day off I threw back on the outfit I wore on Saturday. I didn't get a chance to document it at the time, so why not? This is my take on menswear for women. I guess it's more like 1930's menswear for women with the high waist pants. Even though these pants could easily be put in the "mom jeans" category, I can't stop wearing them. But when has that ever stopped me? I wear a lot of pants that look like mom jeans.
No. Shame.

I'm so freaking ecstatic that these are now part of my shoe collection. I'd been searching for a long while for a pair that reminded me of The Pied Piper. The others just didn't make the cut. Am I the only one that looks at the loafers and see The Pied Piper? Probably. I tend to see a correlation with clothing and obscure references.
Maybe I'll turn my rats on those who have scorned me.

I know I've said this over and over, but I really miss blogging. It used to be one of the biggest parts of my life and not doing it regularly really makes sad. So I'm going to try to update more, mostly for me, because I love it.

I hope the start of your week is going well. If you're down, here's Catbug. He never fails to cheer me up:

the popcorn sweater

more derp

Vintage sweater, Target jeans, gifted purse, and thrifted Timberland boots.

So, I'm officially horrible at blogging, but to be fair the weather really hasn't been in my favor. It makes me dress like a normal person (yuck). This is the first time I've worn a real outfit in ages. If this even qualifies as a real outfit. Mostly I hate this time of year because I have to take photos inside and they always look like poop.

Anyway, let me talk about how much I love these pants. I love that there is a sequin stripe down the side. Brian says they are marching band pants and I legitimately had a 5 minute argument with him about it. I said they were pants that Mick Jagger would wear. Totally right (AGREE WITH ME)? That's what I think of and they make me feel like a British rockstar. In the winter I frequently find myself trying to look like a dirty rockstar. Alter ego or just crazy?

Speaking of things Brian doesn't care for - this sweater. The popcorn sweater. It's been on my blog plenty of times and each time I think I love it more. It's hideously 80's and tacky, which is basically my second language. It even has the shoulder pads still. I refuse to take them out. Usually I take shoulder pads out of most things, but the thought of shoulder pads in a sweater was just too hilarious.

FUN FACT: I really enjoyed airbrushing the teriyaki sauce that was all over my chin from dinner. I didn't realize it was there.

If you were curious, I'll tell you the reason I was laughing in this last photo. I don't hide the fact that I love anime, so if you don't you can jump ship now. I was listening to the theme song to this great anime parody. If only there was a real show like that.
I hope you are surviving winter!
