Somehow I’ve become old enough that this skirt I got in middle school now feels “vintage.”
Shirt: Old Navy, vest: Torrid via fatshionxchange, skirt: maybe Marshall’s?, shoes: Sugar Shoes via eBay, necklace: gifted, earrings: Claire’s, hat and purse: not sure, wristband: Pacsun, pink ring: Kelsea Echo, claddagh ring: not sure
I got it in either 7th or 8th grade, along with another one in cream and brown. I didn’t wear the cream one much, though, so I gave it away a few years later.
This one, I’ve always loved. And thanks to the powers of elastic waists, it still fits me (which is why I love elastic-waist skirts so much, and hate the ones with zippers, which become too tight or loose with even minor weight fluctuations).
I used to think it was Victorian/goth-y, but now it just screams ’90s to me.
I love these pink shoes, which I’ve had since college (and they’re my second pair–I got the first in high school). I don’t wear them out very often, though, because they’re not supportive enough.
The necklace is a recent gift from my grandmother. It has a ’90s feel, so I thought it would go well with this outfit.
The purse is almost as old as the skirt. I was really into fuzzy purses for a while…
I also had one in blue, so I’ll try to dig it out for a future outfit.
All of my old teenage purses are too small for daily use–I usually stick with my silver one, which has all sorts of handy pockets–but I still enjoy matching them up to outfits.
