SLIDER

1982

top: forever 21, dress worn as skirt: urban outfitters, boots: arturo chiang, sunglasses: ray-ban, lipstick: chanel in gabrielle 

Was I alive in 1982? No. Did that stop me from purchasing this shirt? Also no. It reminded me of the ever so popular Topshop number tee, which I had purchased and returned earlier this summer because the whole t-shirt as a dress factor was looking too trampy on me. It's a bit shocking this shirt hasn't made an appearance on the blog before considering how much wear it got when I first bought it in August. Funny how things work out.

Anecdote of the day: The responsible almost-adult that I am, I decided buying 3 pints of Ben & Jerry's ice cream (since it was on sale) was a better option than buying laundry detergent. Priorities. Thankfully I am a chronic shopper so doing my laundry isn't really pertinent until I start running out of socks and/or undergarments.


P.S If you have yet to hear of the young and inspirational woman, Malala Yousafzai, you're missing out. In a time where girls of my generation are represented in mass media by people like Miley and the Kardashians (blech), she's a breath of fresh air. Here's a clip of her on the Daily Show, I really recommend watching!

  2. LOL I laughed so hard at the bit about buying ice cream over laundry detergent. Something I'd do :) Food takes precendent over all life activities I feel. Also, I LOVE your skirt! Where do you live? The weather seems so heavenly!

  6. Oh yeah, Ben & Jerry's definitely comes first, especially when its on sale!
    I loooove this print dress worn as a skirt, especially with your '82 tee. Haha, very cool.
    And wow...I watched the video, and I got goosebumps. That is truly someone who should be representing us girls in the world.

  8. Cute outfit! I love how you paired the number tee with a skirt - interesting combo, but so lovely! Thanks for the recommending Malala Yousafzai. I'm very inspired by women's-right activists like her; more girls need to hear her story.

  10. I feel you when it comes to (especially desperate!) Miley and the Kardashians ;)
    by the way, I have never tried Ben & Jerry's and it's not because they don't sell it in Estonia, they totally do! I just haven't felt like getting it for myself.. anyway, I love the bright pattern on your skirt/dress! and those booties are cute too.
