Liar and a Cheat



Welcome to Blogger Fail, population: me. Okay okay, I don't fail, but it has been decidedly Too Long since I last updated here. I miss it! To be quite honest my outfits have been very lacking in the past week. As in, super super lacking. I can't even remember what I've been wearing because it's so dreadfully nondescript. Alas.

Remember that whole "I WANNA DRESS LIKE A WRITER DERP" post? Well that went out the window pretty fast. I've nothing in my closet that makes me want to get dressed, and nothing that inspires me, so I've just been wearing whatever. Which is awful because I never feel as confident when I'm wearing just whatever.

This is an outfit that I actually spruced up a bit when I came home because I'm a liar and a cheat. I was not wearing the socks or shoes or hat at work (so basically all of it). Also I could wear this hat every day.







I'm wearing: F21 dress/tunic, H&M hat and necklace, UO bag, shoes c/o Blowfish.


I got a new bag! I'm very excited about it. I tend to bring a lot of stuff with me to work every day (i.e. my Macbook, books, DVDs, lunch, granola bars, my gloves, my giant wallet, Macbook charger, etc), and I was getting super annoyed with/bored of my old bag (a red backpack/bag from UO as well which I got years ago), so I got this one on sale. I LOVE IT. I love the vintage collegiate/doctor-y look of it. And obviously, I love everything having to do with doctors... or Doctors. (Doctor Watson and The Doctor, guys.)

Speaking of the Doctor, I've made an appointment with a work friend for us to get tattoos on April 30th! We're both getting TARDIS tattoos, how wretchedly geeky are we? The best part is that she had never seen Doctor Who until she met me, and once I learned she was super into British television, I made her watch and now she is as big a fangirl as me! A truly amazing accomplishment on my part, I must say. I've influenced somebody enough to get a freaking TARDIS tattoo. My work here on Earth is done.

No one cares if you cheat, they just want to see a fun outfit! I cheat too, especially with bags because a lot of my outfits look nice with little bags, but I usually feel like I need to carry a lot with me when I go out. Anyway, you look great. I love how you accessorized your stripey dress!

You can do what ever you want to do. But I appreciate your honesty;) hehe.. Have fun getting your new tat!

I've felt the same way about my wardrobe lately, ack. But you look adorable as always. I love the socks and your new bag.

Your TARDIS tattoo sounds freaking amazing! The geekiest tattoo I want is a Deathly Hallows symbol but my friend is getting a Weeping Angel tattoo later this year.

I've been known to cheat a little bit too, so I won't hold it against you. You look SUPER cute. Those shoes & socks are the bees knees. Your bag is amazing too- very doctor-y.

I like the sprucing up!! Meh, I do that from time to time. Who wants to see outfits that aren't properly accessorized?

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

have fun getting the TARDIS on yourself. It will be fun, I'm sure. you're hilarious by not feeling as confident when you actually make yourself up in a pretty outfit. You're beautiful you know? This is cute as can be.

JennaStevie said...

I love this dress, the stripes and collar are so cute. And those socks look ammmazing with the shoes. It's okay to cheat every now and then. I never end up posting my photos on they day they've been taken.
