Daily Outfit 4/29/10

So here’s what I wore to the UT Fashion Show last Thursday:

Ignore the cookie crumbs on my top. Note to self: no more snacking right before outfit photos.

Let’s break it down:

Top is Kenneth Cole Reaction via TJ Maxx, Fluevog Haight shoes, skirt from Buffalo Exchange, DIY fascinator, glasses from GlassesShop.com.

Close up of fascinator/glasses:

The green has already mostly turned to blue; it did something really weird with my roots where it went yellow-blonde after a few days. But I’ve already touched it up and it’s back to blue-green!

Before the show, Amanda and I went to Diya‘s place and met up with some other bloggers (group and show photos at link) – it was great! The fashion show itself was a little underwhelming, in my opinion – a lot of it was just a bit mainstream for me (ugh, and hipster feather headdresses made an appearance). But there was a steampunk inspired collection and a really cool collection inspired by science fiction heroines. There was a black top in that one that had this amazing huge hood (I’m thinking it was Jedi inspired. Mmm, Ewan McGregor…) that, when let down, turned into a draped cowl neck in the front and a draped, low cut back. I want one. I think Amanda giggled at me because after not showing much enthusiasm for anything else in the show, I squealed and leaned over and said “Ohmygod I want it!”.

Overall, I had a good time, though! Thanks, Diya, for having me!

And here’s an unrelated photo of a mirrory tower on a cloudy day:

    Haha! I LOVE that you have cookie crumbs on your top (that is so something that I would do..), and also, the fact that your hair makes you look like some kind of beautiful, magical rainbow. Love!

    Your glasses are probably the prettiest I’ve ever seen — makes me sad I can’t justify a pair of my own, haha! Loving the hair colors, too.

    Corrine – I’m glad you love it, because when I first saw it on the pictures I was just like “Really, Michelle?!” :P And thank you!

    Amanda – thanks :D I am kind of surprised the fascinator has held up this well, to be honest!

    Claire – I’m not sure if you wear glasses or not, but if you do, they were very inexpensive – $50ish for the frame + lenses + shipping. Not bad at all! And thank you so much, I think they’re the best accessory choice I’ve ever made – I get compliments on them left and right!
