T-Shirt: Love Life Swagger
Bag: Vintage (ebay)
Just let me roam around laughing at Big City Blues,

Thank you Love Life Swagger for the neat Cleo t-shirt swag! I managed to fit in a men’s size medium just fine by tucking the shirt in my favorite pair of high-waisted jeans and a nice, thick, cozy shawl. I thought I’d rock the 90s grunge with a graphic shirt like this, with a bit of plaid here, “mom jeans” there, chipped red nail polish (not planned), and some a la Dr. Martens shoes. Speaking of, I need to take photos of the awesome shoes I am wearing, because I cannot for the life of me figure out who made them.
Don’t let the outfit fool you. It was FREEZING outside, and I forgot that I had a coat with me all along (which I had left at the house I visited). The coat didn’t quite match with what I was wearing, so I basically was a fashion fool by just totally abandoning the coat for the sake of style. I’ve been like this since I was a child. I’m sorry mother. The t-shirt is sort of see-through and light, so you may not want to wear this in the winter like I am. I have inside a tank top for extra layering and also to just cover up the obviously bright aqua I had on underneath :-/
P.S. The shirt may look “dirty” at first, because it does have that grunge-ness to it. Rob did point that out! Anyway, do check out what other stuff you might like to see at Love Life Swagger. I personally was curious about the panda sweatshirt myself.
So 2013 is just around the corner. There are just some things I am set to change about myself and this blog. First of all, I have decided to change the name of this blog from “à la Modest” to “à la Mode St.” so I can keep the domain name without having to live up to a certain “high” standard that I had set for myself to follow but proven to have failed time and time again. I will not abandon my beliefs, but I just cannot associate myself with a name I cannot live up to all the time and subsequently affecting all others who associate with me. I am perfectly flawed, and I am nothing without what I believe in (which I have so been struggling with of late. 2012 has been really tough on me and Rob). More on that in another post, however…
Any out of the ordinary plans for New Year’s eve? What do you set to change about yourself?
