shuffle shuffle shuffle

ok so as you guys know i'm still new here to blog spot and fashion blogging in general and i'm still trying to work all the kinks out. [[still thinking about renaming this blog, what to call different things...]]

but as of right now i'm just trying to show what i wear and the stuff behind it. :] [[like funny stories and what not]]

anywoo, so a couple of nights ago i started experimenting with my stripped long sleeve rodarte top to see what other outfits i could make with it.
i wanted to show how versitile a black and white stripped top was and started pairing it with other things besides my black pencil skirt and jeans.

ok so i know i jsut said i wanted to show more than me doing the typical parisian looking route but i thought that it's a pretty good standard looking outfit right?? plus i love the color pallet of red, black and white :]

[[merona skirt, wal-mart tights, steve madden boots and old navy scarf]]

[[hand me down jumper, dollhosue flats and f21 feathered headband]]

again, going with the black white and red color pallet [[hey i can't help myself!]] only this outfit wasn't as great as i had anticipated. baggy and unfitted is not in my favor here. -_____-;

[[francessca's collections necklace, cotton on firework skirt and dollhouse flats]]
i posted this outfit up on my chictopia blog yesterday and i blogged how when i first wore this skirt, i paired it with a simple black v neck cuz i thought the skirt itself was already pretty colorful and i didn't really want to overshadow it with any other top but this time around, i think my basic stripped top looked pretty good with it yea? it's simple enough to let the skirt have it's moment but interesting enough that the outfit it's self didn't look too plain.
plus i wore this outfit to church with me last saturday when i was getting confirmed into my church only i put on some black tights and lost the chain neckace to make it look more modest.

[[gold mask from a costume store, rose skirt from target and my new fav flats, the black dollhouse flats]]

ok, so it kinda looked like i just changed the skirt and put on a different necklace, but i was trying to rotate on all the skirts i've been aquiring lately. [[they've all been a bit neglected since i've been wearing my pencil skirt most of this time]] i got this mask at a costume store downtown here in San Diego for halloween a couple of years ago but i never really got to wear it so i decided to just wear it as a necklace for this outfit to make it seem a bit more romantic and also cuz it's fun to play with when you're bored ;]

[[f21 dress [[worn as skirt]], and old navy red scarf]]

so...this might not be my best outfit that i created for myself what with it being kinda bulky or whatever...but eh, like i said, i was experimenting! and i haven't worn this dress since my junior year in high school which is kind of a shame cuz the color and pleating on the skirt looks so damn pretty! to tell you the truth i felt like some kind of truffle chocolate[[in the best way of course!]] and i did spend a little time swishing and twirling in it. haha x]

[[francessca's collections black horn necklace, vintage levi's leather belt, f21 black and white floral dress [[worn as skirt]]and dollhouse flats]]

this one i was about to wear to church last saturday for getting confirmed but i changed my mind last min cuz the dress just did not want to be a skirt for a couple of hours x| but i thought it looked good at the time and so did my mom [[which is kinda weird cuz my mom and i dont usually agree on the stuff i wear all the time, like any other teen and mom duo, but this time she said she didn't think it looked weird...odd]] so i hope you guys dont' think it looks weird >___<

well, yea, that's all i got right now in terms of my stripped top. i love it and i hope you guys will love yours too and experiment more.
byyyeeee :D
