Spice World!

This outfit post is a little bit overdue.  My friend Kaleb and I took some fashion photos one of my last days on campus so he could use them for his internship.  This look was one of two that we shot.  He also helped me put together these outfits out of things I already had which was nice because sometimes I feel like my wardrobe could use a new perspective.  This outfit is all about giving a new context to older pieces of clothing, as the t-shirt and hoodie are items acquired when I was much younger.

The Spice Girls shirt was a 10th birthday present that was far too big on me at the time but I'm glad I kept it around because it finally fits over 10 years later.  The skirt is my favorite tutu I bought from Forever 21.  When I bought it, I wasn't sure if I would regret the purchase because I didn't know what to wear it with.  It turns out that it makes any t-shirt into something much cuter and less sloppy looking.  I went through a phase where I only wore it with my black Siouxsie and the Banshees shirt but I have since evolved beyond that.  The hoodie is from my high school days and the backpack is from Sanrio. 

The gold and purple glitter tights were a spontaneous purchase from Icing and the shoes are my first pairs of Jeffrey Campbell's.  As cute as look, they were a big purchase that I am still questioning.  The extreme height makes it really disorienting when wearing them.  I am so far from everything and stairs are a nightmare.  And I think it's more difficult to walk in them because I have thin ankles and the straps only go so tight.  I may have to try and make an extra hole and see if they're easier to wear that way.
