Trail of Roses
|Bustier: c/o Eikosi Style Skirt & Heels: Rue 21 Hat: JcPenney Necklace: Claires|
I feel like that last photo sums up what it's like being interested in fashion in my small town. Bernie's looking at me like most of the people around here do: "Where does she think she is?"
So what if I enjoy pairing bustiers with high waisted skirts? So what if I like wearing my ridiculously huge floppy hat out? So what if I happen to enjoy tall shoes? When I dress up like this, I'm not actively searching out attention. My intention is not this at all. Merely, I am dressing for myself - I enjoy being creative and putting together something that makes me feel unique and confident. I'm tired of seeing the same thing on everyone and seeing it worn the same way. You're only young once, now's the time to be eclectic and experimental with your style!
When people ask me where I get things, I feel like I constantly reply, "Online." Seriously, to find the most unique and stand out pieces, try searching online shops! This lace-back bustier is from my newest sponsor, Eikosi Style. They have a good selection of basic wardrobe pieces with fun details and prints! I've been wanting to add more bustier-styled tops to my wardrobe, mainly because it's something that looks so cool with high waisted pieces. Also, who else can't believe this skirt is from Rue 21? For $3 on the clearance rack? SCORE.
Anyway, yesterday was the start of leadership retreat here at my college. All the councils, like Senate, Program Board, Ambassadors, etc. get together to find out more about our roles and learn values like teamwork, cooperation, communication, and all that jazz. The activities were fun yesterday since we went to the ropes course that was nearby to start off the day. Then today we're having two speakers before heading off to hang out at the nearby lake for some bonding time. Should be fun! Although afterwards I have to work a 7 hour shift...sigh. It's going to be a long day friends. Hope yours is a good one!
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God
