fringe benefits

Yes, I think this title is pretty clever. Actually, it probably is only clever if you know that in England "fringe" is used in lieu of "bangs"

Sundays should be reserved for doing homework and being all sorts of productive. Well, that should be the mentality when I'm in school. I'd much rather catch up on fashion blogs, eat a burrito, and watch a movie. Although I'm not too happy with how I have spend my Sunday evening I offer an outfit post.

Here's what I was initially wearing before I headed off to ballet.

Shirt - Urban Outfitters
Skirt - Thrifted; Goodwill
Tights - Discount Dance Supply; Caprezio

But really I felt like wearing a sweater and switching into my ballet skirt.

Sweater - H&M
Skirt - Thrifted; Goodwill
Belt - Thrifted; Goodwill

I'm quite fond of the pattern mixing going on here. I had been perusing through Boxing Kitten's collection, a label that I must do a post on, and felt as if I needed to remind myself of all the patterns in my wardrobe.

 And for fun, here is a shot of my nail polish. I haven't been wearing nail polish too often these days because polish tends to come clean off my nails. Its a recent development that I'm not happy with. Its actually pretty embarrassing to look down at my nails and see that one nail is bare looking as if I had simply forgot to paint it.

I ain't no black swan

but i can plies like no other....okay, maybe not but, I am taking ballet this semester. What appears to be a normal outfit is actually my ballet gear! Sure the skirt is an ordinary, albeit wonderfully moveable, purchased from Goodwill and the belt makes frequent appearances. But that is an actual leotard I'm wearing! A leotard I could use to do my own Single Ladies dance in even if the trend has passed. I didn't actually wear the belt during the class but needed something to make it seem as if I were just wearing an outfit and not ballet clothes when in my other class. 

Leotard: Discount Dance Supply
Skirt: Thrifted; Goodwill
Tights: Rite Aid
Shoes: Gigi's Dance Closet

I just received the proper dance tights, which are pink so it may be harder to fool others that I'm simply wearing any old outfit when I'm out and about. 

Aaaaaaaand here's my face because I was feeling camera-happy

Oh yeah, I bought tulips that are quickly dying. 

making time

I did say I would try to post more frequently but I just get frustrated with the internet connection at school. So here are some outfits, well two I should say, that I took about a week ago. 

Dress: Thrifted; Salvation Army

Also I'm finally debuting my coat! It wasn't cold enough by far to actually wear this out so it's just for show at the moment. 

Coat: Vintage; Lemon Frog

And an outfit from last Friday

Shirt: Thrifted; Goodwill
Skirt: Thrifted; Salvation Army
Scarf: small store in Uganda

I really love the color of the skirt. Its probably something in my wardrobe that I should make more of an effort to wear. The only thing is I don't feel as if I can move freely about in it because it is so body conscious. So when I went out that night I changed skirts.
