By the sea, by the beautiful sea

Shirt- secondhand : Pants- secondhand : Attitude- free

I usually like to KISS when it comes to my everyday outfits-- keep it simple stupid, that is (don't worry, you're not stupid). I'm all for mixing prints and having some fun with dressing up, but I think it's the classic, clean look that I really love and rely on.

Just like Tamia from the Style Sample, I too have re-found clothing from the depths of my closet. It's almost like I went shopping without telling myself-- how thoughtful of me! Or uh, just plain absent-minded. It's an oddly bright color combination, but I thought the cool blue would match these slacks that I had. Simple, right? I enjoyed feeling like a sailor on LSD in this outfit.

However, my attire was apparently reminiscent of a certain demon barber from Fleet Street... or so my friend told me today. Thank.... you? It's Johnny Depp, so I guess I'll take that as a compliment.

How many differences can you spot? Sorry, I'm still working on my sullen "stricken for revenge so I'll just cut people instead" impression.

Another photo bomb, courtesy of my dog. Thanks, Cami.

I could submit this photo to Ghostbusters and say that a spirit is haunting my photos, and please make it stop because it's being very rude.

My friend was actually sitting in front of a missing USB drive, but this was just funny. :) It reminds me of Katie Sokoler, only less whimsical and awesome.

Holy shit those are some fat ass books.
Your shirt is like a Dr. Suess sailor (though I love the sweeny todd inspired shoot. Tim Burton= serious love)

Poppy said...

Haha if I'm honest my mind went to the books first too! Ugh...damn it nerd gene. Look at the clothes!
I dunno, I don't think you look like monsieur Depp. I do like the combination. Very frenchy. Which I like! =]

Eva Internazionale said...

That's such a funny comparison, but it does make sense. Also, the books? :D

wanted to make sure you knew that i never ever thought you were bullying me! i am DEEPLY grateful to you for your sweet little push of encouragement for me to wear color. i have been forcing myself to do it in winter and it feels good!
so thank you, and my sincere apologies if i ever seemed to give the impression that you were bullying. i was teasing about pestering, and i am so glad that you did!
