Model Behavior

It seems I have missed Wendy's post on red legs, but I wanted to join in! I am doing the Wendy Brandes pose to make up for my lateness!

Wendy only has one pose, but though I should try a few out, as it seems most fashion bloggers have many. I am actually going to start doing yoga on Tuesday, in an effort to learn more poses and become a better fashion blogger. As these photos evidence, I am not yet very talented at posing.
With time, I will improve at looking as if I have been caught off guard in my natural environment when the self-timer goes off.

French schoolgirl

This is my main striped shirt, and it is actually a dress. The skirt is from a school uniform, actually. I wore this to my second day of internship, because the kids were distracted my all my jewelry and bright colors on the first day of internship.

I am obviously the worst blogger ever, because I do not know how to turn these photos. They were right side up when I saved the files, but blogger will not let me put them that way. Oh well, at least all the photos are the same width today! I hear that is important. Small victories.

Blazer Saddles

Today was a good day for the Everybody, Everywear blazer day. It was my first day of my "internship", which is actually just a class. You sign up, they place you in a school. It is kind of like student teaching, but with less teaching. An in-between step. So I needed to look professional. Which I love. Dressing up is awesome. I wore this blazer, which is not very classic and maybe is kind of dowdy. But I kind of have dowdy style, so of course I like it. It is velvety with a flower pattern. I am pretty sure it was cut from the same cloth as the sofa from my childhood home.

Skirt: Thrift store, no tag

Today I initially thought I was going to take my outfit photos inside. It is February, so it is freezing and wet outside. However, I looked outside my window, and spring must be coming! There were leaves on the trees, and wildflowers had started sprouting! So I went outside and took a photo. However, it still gets dark quite early, so the stars were already out! What a beautiful night!

The White Stripes broke up.

Notice the tree carnage from the storm a few days ago in the background.
I am generally against the black, white and red combination, because I am not a member of the White Stripes* and do not want to be mistaken for one. However, it was a winning combination today. I have cut my hair too short, but only on one side, so it looks a little bit terrible, and I am going to be experimenting with turbans and hats in the next few weeks. The black, white and red combo helps people to accept my turban wearing as extremely stylish and put together instead of trying to cover a bad haircut or thinking that I am dressed up as a gypsy.

Sometimes fashion bloggers get caught
mid-pose. Here is an example of that.
Turban: From my mom
Dress: Unique thrift store, Styleworks
Shoes: Sister's left-behinds. Xhileration.
Shirt: Thrift store.
*When I got home, I found out that the White Stripes broke up today, so the outfit is very timely.

Better late than never

I am here to join the fashion blogging party. Here is what I wore today.
I love giant clip on earrings. I found these this
 morning when foraging in my mom's jewelry
collection, and they matched my palate of blue
 and cream. I also need a haircut.

I did not actually wear the beret today, but when I got home from school, my hair was messed up. I really did not weather the day very well. My skirt was too big on me. The whole day it was sliding down and letting everyone see the control tops of my tights. I am hoping that everyone thought I was wearing an undershirt. Next time I see this skirt, I will have to introduce it to a belt. 
Maryssa and I had a two hour break, which was as boring as this picture made it look. For a while, we sat in the cafeteria, but that quickly grew tiresome after we had finished eating.
We decided to walk around and go fashion blogging. She walks faster than me, and is always leaving me behind. She also never tells me if my cardigan is buttoned wrong.
Today is the first day in a million years that I have used this backpack. It is great. Things feel so much lighter than they do in a tote bag! I see all these dumb bitches walking around like bent trees carrying giant tote bags. To think, just yesterday, that was me! I have seen the light! 

Turtleneck: Thrift store, no tag.
Cardigan: Thrift store, J. Crew
Skirt: Red White & Blue thrift store in Pittsburgh. I have had this since I was in 6th grade. Abercrombie & Fitch
Tights: Ebay, Danskin. 
Boots: Thrift store, no brand. The sole just says the size and "Waterproof"
