So, I nixed the Outfit a Day thing for a while because, as mentioned, I felt a little self-masturbatory about the whole thing… you know… being all “PICTUREOFMEPICTUREOFMEPICTUREOFME” all of the time can sometimes look a little vain.
But this weekend some of my peeps convinced me that my unplanned “in the toilet change room mirror” selfies, and self-deprecating descriptions were not quite as self-indulgent as I imagined, so I’ll start this bullshit back up again. Mostly because if I don’t do it, I will lapse into a coma of wearing mom-capris with ankle ties and cotton embellished dress shirts from Reitmans, because that tends to be what happens to peoples’ work wardrobe after they become detached from the bumpin’ fashion underground of their youth.
Of course, the day that I restart, my outfit is pretty tame.
I bought this silk dress on the “defective” rack at Joe Fresh for $30.00. What is its defect? I have yet to find out. So it’s possible that there is a huge full-body-sized rip in the ass-area that I have been accidentally sporting all day.
You can also see my gross crack-whore knee bruise that was likely procured during one of the many drunken stumbles I had this weekend.
ALTHOUGH, I am wearing my new favourite turquoise stone necklace that was purchased on ebay for like 5 bones. I wore it around this whole weekend, and during one of the aforementioned drunken stumbles, I thought I had lost it, but it turns out that drunken Natalie is just as protective of her necklaces as sober Natalie… because last night I found it tucked away in my kitchen cabinet between the oatmeal and the rice for safe keeping.
