polyvorin’ it up

I have a feeling this is going to become an addiction:

fabulously 80’s by declinedesigns

I have no qualms about admitting that I love 80’s fashion, haha. (this one I entered in the iCiNG contest as well)

Although – semi-surprisingly – it’s kind of a really useful tool in several ways. It helps me see how I put an outfit together for one thing. And it definitely lets me immediately see what I would actually wear or is versatile and what isn’t – I added a ton of things to my items, thinking “oh how cute!” and then when I went to put something together, I was left staring at the screen going “yeah, it’s cute, but none of it goes together. shit.”. It’s helping me narrow down my shopping list – so far I’ve got (yes I know this is obnoxious and I just went over it last night, I am an obsessive list maker so you can feel free to skip it):

  • a black and white striped button up sweater
  • 1-2 other long sleeved shirts
  • the aforementioned shoes (update on the booties! I found the website for Bronx shoes and emailed them about the issue, and a girl on PRD, who lives in Finland I believe, said she will keep an eye out for ‘em for me, and will let me know if she sees them so I can pay her/have her buy them and ship them here.) one pair each of heels/flats/boots. any other new shoes will be thrifted.
  • at least three pairs of leggings (this is depending on how many I can find at thrift stores) – the blue/black leopard print pair from Forever 21, for sure, as well as a black pair and another solid color, probably pink or green.
  • the London Calling shirt from above, and probably one other t-shirt or short sleeved top.
  • the pink skull skirt from above, one or two other skirts, and one dress (at a total loss where to go with the dress. Some lacy black confection so I can pair it with my oversized camo jacket, some bright leggings, and motocycle boots? or a leopard or tattoo print in a retro cut?).
  • a new pair of jeans, probably in a medium wash (washed the thrifted Converse jeans today which completely solved the fit problem – yay!) and a pair of black skinny jeans. maybe a pair in an obnoxious color.
  • a few large square scarfs, maybe the one in the Polyvore above, and a few new hair bows (those I can/will DIY though, most likely, although these are pretty badass and probably something I will keep in mind). oh and probably 2 bracelets (the handcuff one from above and the Etsy one).
  • and the bras of course!

As far as productivity goes, today was a total waste. BUT Coni and Courtney, as well as a girl from training at work (oh god my house is a mess, she will think I am a slovenly pig) are coming over for some DIY’n tomorrow, so hopefully at least the skirt will get done. We just watched Chasing Amy (which is the only Kevin Smith movie Matt hadn’t seen yet) and I really should have been crocheting on my cloche or the swap hat, but instead I was coming up with a shitload of awesome and informative stuff in IFB’s archives to read. Which I am off to do now!

Oh and I almost forgot to add – apparently Google has an office in Austin, how cool would it be if I could get a job there?! Not sure how I’ll get there from a Best Buy call center, but that doesn’t mean I can’t try, right? hah.
