Lookbook: My Max-ID-i.y.

8/27/2012

What a complicated title. In case you haven't noticed, I try to be creative with my lookbook titles, and sometimes my creativity gets the best of me when I think a bit too out of the box (unless you totally see what I was going for with this title). 

I was mixing "maxi" with "I.D." with "diy" since this outfit post is all about my latest D.I.Y. endeavors where I turned a crappy maxi dress into a flowy maxi skirt. I mean, the dress was so ill-fitting...I couldn't get over it. I had to cut off the top half and mess with the elastic to make it wearable. This is my maxi I.D.Wearing: 
♥ Foreign Exchange top (last seen in Little Lace Riding Hood♥ eBay maxi skirt (formerly a dress) ♥ F21 leather jacket  Elie Tahari flats  Juicy Couture bagThese were taken after an early dinner at Naglee Park Garage where I ate some yummy bread pudding dessert that you might have seen on my Instagram. Then we headed over to Santana Row for drinks and a movie. I saw Cosmopolis starring Robert Pattinson. It was one of the worst movies ever. I was going to walk out of it and go buy a sweater at H&M, but it was already closed. Now all I can think about is how Robert Pattinson stole two hours of my life and a comfy sweater.

What do you think of this look?
