This outfit reminds me of a glam schoolgirl. I like the textures of the brown crushed velvet with the silvery blouse and the shininess of patent leather. I've been trying to figure out a way to wear this velvet dress without looking too much like a figure skater; I much prefer glam schoolgirl. Another thing I like about this outfit is that it was practically free. The dress is thrifted, the sunglasses were $5, the bag is my grandma's and everything else is my mom's.
I was an English major in college. This doesn't mean anything other than that I have a penchant for literature because my grammar is littered with what I'd like to just call "ingrammaticalities" and you'll find bullshit words like this one all the time in my daily speech. Tim keeps a list in his phone of the "charming" things I say. I'm glad I studied English. It gave me the skills of critical thinking and reasoning and I'm a damn good arguer. I also got to read a lot and really discuss life's important questions. I like to think of English as the more personal, emotional, and subjective side of philosophy. This major has led me to being a pretty good thinker but I think I need to be a better doer. This time around, I'd like to study photography, creative writing, film-making, or design. What was your major?
Fashion is a fun diversion. An escapism of sorts from the heady intellectual matters that cloud our day.
