Like an old coin

This morning, as I sat in my hello kitty pajama pants, hole in crotch, and ate my Lucky Charms (no milk) with my bare hand, my dad tried to explain to my cousin that I "clean up nicely." That I'm like an old coin, just give me a shining. By old coin, he meant unbathed woman, and by shining, he meant shower, hair and makeup. As soon as I got out of the shower at 6pm, I decided if I was going to do anything today, I may as well blog. This is an outfit I have worn on multiple occasions, none of which have been photographed. I had originally bought the skirt at a thrift store with the intention of sewing it into something spectacular once I "learn how to sew" but once I got home and tried it on it fit like an ummmm glove? Total cost of my outfit (minus Target shoes) 6 dollars. Holla!

My mom thought I looked decapitated, I told her thats how bloggers do it! Its called outfit detailing.

Target shoes

Singing doo a ditty ditty dum ditty doo. Just walking down the street.

All I was wearing. Minus my spanx, I mean  uh-bad guys rob banks.

My Mexican peso earrings I made. I think these are the coins my dad was referring to. Viva la bloga!

  3. I LOVE this look! I love that your entire outfit (shoes don’t count) cost six dollars.

    Story time. When My trianer and I started working out it was in the evenings so I looked ok…have the days make up on and all. Then We switched to mornigns when my hair was disheveled and I went in barefaced. He started telling me I looked pretty "tired" in the mornings. Then he stopped commenting all together because he realized that’s how I normally look lol

    Sometimes when I see him when I am all dressed and ready for the day he takes a double look not in a gross way, but in the I cant believe that’s the same person lol.
