Today I wanted to look like I had just rolled out of bed and grabbed the first things I could find. But I didn’t really want to do that (the effect wouldn’t be as good). So I layered loose clothing and intentionally pinned my cardi askew. I also squeezed in a bit of pattern mixing for a je ne sais quoi look.
Pants: Eileen Fisher via Goodwill
These are my $5 Goodwill pants. I ruched the bottom of the outside seam by hand-stitching them. Now they’re like the harem-y, billowy pants all the models wear on the runways. But, if in a few more wears, I decide only a model of Amazonian proportions can get away with this look, I’ve lost nothing.
And just so it looked like I cared a just a little (after rolling out of bed), I wore heels. I always walk a more deliberately and confidently when I wear funky, tall look-at-me shoes.
Have you altered any of your clothes?
