I am positively enthralled by this absurd weather we’re having. I usually dislike talking about the weather, but this fall has just been fantastic with these little warm ups! 70 degrees F in November? In Chicago?!? What?
So of course I had to find something cute to wear today—I had Beijing-hip on the mind, something upbeat and different.
A few weeks ago, I bought this size L DKNY men’s cardigan at a yard sale around the block. My friend liked it, but didn’t have any cash on him, so I supplied the finances. And of course just as nothing stays the same, his opinion of it didn’t. Initially, it occurred to me that I could just wear it as is, but then I glanced in the mirror and the baggy slouchy thing could only be termed aptly as a HOT MESS, meaning I had to chop it all up and rearrange.
My only complaint is that the shoulders are a little too wide for me still, but that’s mostly just because I was too lazy to cut the sleeves off and reattach them. Who wants to do that when there’s a quantum mechanics problem set waiting to be done?
After these photos, it seems apparent that I need to upgrade my $99/2 pair glasses with non-glare lenses…..
Necklace from forever 21. They have such a huge selection of jewelry, but one thing that always irks me about f21 is that you rarely are able to find the stuff on the website in the stores and visa versa—you can’t online shop then go to the store expecting to find anything.
