outfit post: Cosmos
I haven't been able to shop much lately, as I'm on a very tight budget. Which hasn't bothered me, as I've got loads of vintage to dress up in, but what happens when certain strategic pieces, like, say, tops are either getting too small, or worn out? My t-shirts are stained (from work) and holy from age, and there's no replacement for the time being. What's a rosebud to do? Well, this t-shirt had a few bleach holes in it, so I decided to take it to town, and ripped holes all over it. It's fairly indecent without the camisole under it, but I kind of like the layered effect it creates. My leopard print belt peeps through, and the grey d.i.y. thermal shrug just seemed like a natural companion to the shredded tee. The outfit was then put together instinctively, so I'm not sure why the tights with strings and the brown woven bag seemed to fit with the ensemble but they did. And like me, the random overflow of cosmos growing in my neighbors yard just felt right.
