I've Changed Since Then, Yet You've Remained The Same

Unleashing My Inner Hippie Flower Child:

Sorry for lack of anything fashionwise in this post, but I've been sitting around being a major dork lately...playing Nancy Drew computer games, baking Magic Bars, and reading this amazing book about the Titanic written by survivors of the disaster. (I found it at this great used book store for $3. I was really excited because I have been FASCINATED by the Titanic since the 3rd grade. Me and some friends of mine even built a model of it for school.) Unfortunately, that means I have taken almost no pictures of my outfits...except the one picture above...which I took for this week's Weardrobe contest! =]

The skirt was actually made about...10 years ago(?) for my mom by this lady we went to church with when we lived in New York. She rarely wears it, but suggested that I try making an outfit with it...so I did! Note: I did NOT wear this outfit all day because I would have FREEZED my bum off...its only about in the 50s... However the outfit was just perfect and I had to take pictures of it. Or rather, my mom took pictures of it.

And one more thing! You guys HAVE to check out this website called Looklet. It looks like its going to be pretty amazing! Just put you e-mail in and they'll send you an invitation code. I got mine within a day!

Yes! That skirt is ridiculously awesome. I would probably never wear it, but I like looking at it. Being a nerd is fun.

Dude, I used to be obsessed with Titanic as well! Ironically, when i was in the third grade too. I should check out that book, what;s it called?
The outfit is fab btw. I admire those who can pull of a full length skirt. Thats the RIGHT way so pull off a hippie outfit!
