RUNNING ON THE FRINGE


I wore this outfit to a concert a few weeks ago and got crazy amounts of compliments on it. I have been a bit obsessed with fringe lately, but not just any fringe. VELVET FRINGE. I feel like I walked straight back to the 90s and stole all the fashion trends. Seriously, today I was watching Boy Meets World and this girl was wearing one of the most flawless, 90s-est outfits I've ever seen. I'm 100% sure I'm copying it tomorrow. I don't know what my life is. Anyhow, we all know leather have been sweeping the blogosphere, so I figured I'd put my own spin on it. Fun fact: everything in this outfit was under $30. At least it was when I purchased it. 
Also, how do you guys feel about these glasses? They're just frames right now but I'm thinking I might like to make them real? OPINIONS PLEASE.








On a related topic, I'm a little too obsessed with bobby socks. Topshop has the best. I own three or four now and it's not enough. I also just found some sheer bobby socks at UrbanOg.com that I'm desperate to try. Anyone want to give me eight more pairs? Please and thanks.



What I'm wearing:
Crop Top: Topshop (on super sale)
Skirt: Honestly I don't remember. But here's a similar one! And CHEAP.
Jacket: Borrowed. 
Hat: Vintage (Great Uncle's hand-me-downs)
Socks: Topshop (these come in 28947 colors and I need every. single. one).
Booties: Maurices (super duper sale a long time ago).

CALL THE DOCTOR


After months and months of desiring Dr. Martens, followed by a few more months of saving my funds, I finally ordered my first pair! I cannot express how excited I was to finally receive them in the mail. But alas, what would my life be if things went smoothly all the time? Incorrect. Incorrect is what my life would be. I opened the box and realized they still had the security tag on them! This wouldn't be a huge deal for a normal human who lives in a real city, but the closest store for me was an hour away so now I had to wait until the weekend to fix my treasures! I don't know how I did it, honestly. I had reached that point where I just got frustrated every morning because I knew my Docs were the only shoe that should be worn with the outfit of the day. TALK ABOUT STRUGGLES. Anyhow, yesterday was the day I finally got the tag removed and I'm already so thrilled. Walking through the melting ice/snow is no longer terrifying because I believe my Docs can handle anything. Am I right?? My friend Kathleen and I have been talking about Dr. Martens all weekend and I figured I'd grab some pictures today since we were both rocking the crap out of them. Except she is more adorable. I need to get on her level, clearly. Anyhow, I am obsessed with them because they're so versatile. There is a Doc for any occasion, it seems. I'm seriously in love with her white ones (maybe they'll be my next pair). I love how rad they look with her velvet dress and denim jacket. So much grunge. So long story long, Dr. Martens are flawless and they make every outfit more perfect. Also comfort. I'd wear these over heels any day. 


What I'm wearing: 
Hat: Forever 21
Sweater: Free People
