{outfit post} City Bee

Tuesday, January 29, 2013



I was browsing the racks at my local Goodwill a couple weeks ago and I stumbled upon this turtleneck cape. I DO NOT do turtlenecks as a rule, but I was so intrigued by the design, I decided to overlook it. To be honest, it's a cool unique garment, but it's totally impractical. I really don't know how often I will be able to wear it due to functionality (and weather in LA). I feels a bit like a straight jacket when it's on... but man doesn't it look great with this outfit? Pshh... who needs practicality in fashion?

I also pulled out this old mustard skirt from the back of my closet. I am just now realizing I have never shown this skirt on here before... That's when you know you have a problem folks. I have so many clothes I can't keep track of all of them and in 2 years there are still things you've never seen. I am the definition superfluous. On the other hand, now that I am unemployed, my shopping budget has altogether dried up. I look forward to bringing you new garments pulled from the depths of my closet!

All too often, the most fashionable of garments are also the most impractical! What can we do but accept it? You look lovely!
