These are the shoes I was wearing back here that you couldn't see.
This outfit was inspired by this one over at Gretchen's Closet.
Inspired? But it's so simple! And that's the point.
I feel really intimidated by other people's fashion blogs sometimes, because I don't have a lot of clothes and I don't have a lot of money to buy new things. And because I'm larger than "average," it's really hard for me to find things even when I'm thrifting. Sometimes I get frustrated with my limits, sometimes I worry about rejection. Then I see someone else looking really chic in something basic and I think, "I can do that. What was I getting all upset for?"
I could have added a bracelet and a ring though, I guess. I'm still not used to this whole accessorizing thing.
I have purchased a few inexpensive trinkets on Etsy recently and this was one of them. I was really tickled to find this necklace on Etsy because I actually own one of the limited edition copies of the Italian Cat Tarot from 1990. It was one of the first things I ever got on eBay and I just love it. The chain was originally really long, but because it's a ball chain necklace, it was very easy for me to cut and make shorter.
