dressed up like a lady: The Collar.

Dec 28, 2011

The Collar.

Sorry for the holiday hiatus! I have lots of great pictures from Christmas, but while I'm busy resizing all those, here's a basic outfit post for you featuring one of life's simple, fashion pleasures: a button-up collar over a crewneck sweater.

Polo Sweater Knock-Off featuring a Unicorn Logo: Vintage
Suede Mini-Skirt: Vintage via the Getup
Wool Over-the-Knee Socks: Sockdreams
Shoes: Random 6pm clearance buy
Sunglasses: Thrifted

I can't possibly photograph this outfit without a creepy twin shot of me and MC.

How's this for oversharing about our outfits: for YEARS, MC and I worked at the same office as I silently obsessed over him, secretly in love but entertaining not so much as the wish -- let alone hope -- that he would one day be mine. On frequent days when he wore a perfect, trim little sweater with his oxford collar peeking out, I looked on longingly and thought "Oh, to be Matt Collar's collar...."

Adding to the entertainment value to this embarrassing story is the fact that my ardent attraction to the well-dressed MC led to this:


  The inspiration for a song I recorded with Bulletproof, the pop punk band I was in back in 2006.  

That was three full years before MC and I even started dating. 


  1. I love the pink sweater with the suede skirt.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Hi my fellow non-drinker :) You're looking cooler than an iceberg here. Love the OTK socks and that seriously timeless brown satchel in particular.

    Many thanks for your blog comment today, dear gal - hope you have a stellar New Year!!!

  5. Why you aren't an extremely famous songstress right now.... I have no idea. Every time I hear your voice, I mean....amazing...who do we need to call to make this happen?

  6. I love the outfit and the "freaky twins" photo :D

    P.S. If you keep being so nice about my makeups I will have no other choice than to fall in complete self-adoration for my works ;)
