black dress worn as skirt: thrifted :: Joker tee: Hot Topic :: striped cardi: Forever 21::
pink purse: Forever 21 :: red flats: Candie's :: belt: thrifted


I was so happy today when I donned this cardi. It's finally cool enough to actually wear layers! I was so ecstatic, I celebrated by playing video games all day. Inside. And I mean ALL DAY. I literally parked my butt on the couch and stared at the TV for 6 hours straight, only pausing to grab a glass of water or some watermelon. 

I know I'm probably the last one to find out about this, but the game Civilization Revolution is a heck of a lot of fun, like, addicting kind of fun! When I was a kid, I used to love playing strategy games like Warcraft and Starcraft. And I remember really getting into other PC games like Age of Mythology and whatnot when I was in high school. I just love the idea of designing and expanding an empire! It's so thrilling!

But enough of the geek babble. Here's yet another experiment with a different silhouette. I wore the skirt higher than my natural waist, still, but a little lower than last time. Tucking tops in is actually new for me. I am very conscious of my middle area, but I quite like this effect. I think the poofiness of the skirt makes my waist look even smaller.

After I'd indulged in all my nerdness, I set out to buy mozzarella balls for the pizzas that my friends and I were having for dinner. Since I hadn't eaten all day, I was in dire need of some protein goodness. Lo and behold, in the shelf right in front of me were these organic peanut butter covered pretzels, taunting me. Calling out my name. I couldn't get a clear picture of them because I was too excited to eat them. You'll just have to trust me. They were that good.

  9. i think the skirt looks good on you and with the shirt tucked in too! i've been tucking in some shirts with skirts especially if it hides the middle area, but none of my pants seem to do that though :( oh well.

    also, love the skull bracelet and the purse is adorable!

    xo, Jill

  15. Hey Laura thanks for dropping a comment on my blog :) Yes you must give Kiehl's a try! It will do wonders in moisturizing the skin around your eyes. And its good to hear someone who agrees with me on the Moraccanoil! Def not worth the hype.

  16. You look like a ROCKSTAR in this outside. It's got a little edge but it's still sweet and awesome!

    Probably just like those pretzels. I would like 20 of those, in my mouth. RIGHT. NOW.

  17. Laura, once again I love how you've used a dress as a skirt! I would never have known! The stripped cardi rocks, especially paired with the graphic tee. You look adorable!

  18. You're a lady after my own heart! Nothing beats staying inside on a cold, wintry day playing video games. I used to obsess over Civilizations: Rome. I remember dreaming about how to build up my towns. Now a nice first person shooter is the business for me! Anyway, I like your sassy little outfit :)

  25. those peanut butter pretzels sure looks good!

    cute outfit! especially the skirt! i love skirts that are poofy too, or anything that flares out because it gives me an illusion of a smaller waist area as well. i have a boyish figure, so no curves at all -__-

  26. You look like a cute little punk rocker :) hmmm pretzels

  27. I love your outfit. The tiered skirt is so pretty and feminine, but then your tee does make it a little more punk. Great look.

  34. Hiii. I have been a horrible blogger... Hehe. But oh my goodness. I swear I'm addicted to tucking my shirts in. I almost feel uncomfortable if they aren't. Love how it looks on you-especially with the teal belt :D

  38. How fun is this outfit? And you're killing me with those red flats. And those pretzels :)

    P.S. You're always so kind about my photographs, Laura! Your comments never fail to put a smile on my face. In all honesty, I just point the camera at something (focus if I need to) and click away. I really doubt that you fail at it! You mentioned something once about having a Hello Kitty fisheye camera (squueeee)? Keep practicing with that; I'm sure you'll get some really cool results. My favorite film to experiment with in new cameras is Fujicolor 200. It's relatively cheap and I like it so much that I use it more regularly now. I haven't developed my own film in a realllly long time. I took a photography course in high school which was very informative and lots of fun, but that was the last time I was in a darkroom.
