More Please

Thursday, January 13, 2011
I can't stop wearing these clogs. They are my new Tsubo shoes. Remember when I wore those for like a month straight? I think I've got shoe fever...and the only prescription is more cowbell. (I couldn't help it!) Obviously, the answer is I need more shoes. But nothing will fit my wide feet. My life sucks.

This is probably my favorite skirt in my closet. One, it's the first skirt I've made that has actually stayed intact (probably because I haven't washed it yet). Two, it's longer. I always felt like since I'm so short I should wear shorter skirts...like right above my knees. OMGZ!!!! I'm like so immodest. Now I'm thinking past-the-knees is okay too. The trick is to have the skirt placed at your waist to help you look taller. Add some 4" heels and you're pretty much a giant.

I've been feeling really uninspired lately. But I still come up with some pretty amazing outfits. I don't know. I guess it's a gift. I feel like I've worn today's outfit before though... I think it's because this is a mishmash of previous outfits. And the only answer to that is I need more clothes. MOREMOREMORE!!!

  2. I have been waffling (hahaha!!! Reference to your previous post!) about whether I needed/wanted a denim/chambray shirt and this outfit has settled it. LOVE THIS! I could so rock this look too! YAY!

  4. Love, love, love. I just love this!! I adore those clogs, just like the Tsubo shoes. Confession, I was actually thinking of wearing my denim shirt tomorrow with a skirt, so consider yourself my inspiration if I do! :)

  6. Sometimes the unexpected uninspiring pieces make the best outfits!

  7. I agree with you about the length of skirts. I'm 5'3 so I either have to see my knee, or wonder if I have legs... no inbetween! High waistedness gives the illusion of height. So nice!

  8. All these clog posts are def leaving me inspired to buy a pair myself. I just don't know if I can handle such a high heel. Are they comfortable enough for actually walking in and not just sitting around looking pretty? They're really fantastic!

  9. Do you have a post on how you made that skirt? If not, you should definitely do a tutorial about it because that skirt is the bomb.dot.com

    Anyway, who wouldn't want more clothes? =) I loove empire waist dresses, or you know the tank top+skirt=dress dresses? those are awesome, because my waist looks higher, so I look taller, hehhe.

  14. Everytime you show that skirt, I wish I could turn my curtains into a skirt too!!!!! Or my tablecloth, or my runner :p Gorgeous as always!

  15. I don't know which I like better, those clogs or the "MORE COWBELL" reference. If Christopher Walken wore those clogs, I don't think I can handle the combined awesomeness. xD

    Yay for remixings!

  17. Ok. For YOUR sake, I want you to have more clothes. But I love the way you spin things, and always you fresh, put together and totally styley. Modest or not, you are one spiffy dresser. And I LOVE the fact that you show how it's done,day after day, on a limited budget, and wardrobe. INSPIRING, LOVELY.

    So buy some more clothes. And clogs. Just not too many.

    What's the foot size by the way? Aside from wiiiiide?

  18. If I had those shoes I would wear them everyday too, they are amazing!

  19. Elaine you seriously make me laugh all the time! And I love your blog and the posts. I don't comment very often, but I read it every day. :) I like how you paired the laid back button-up with the fancy looking skirt..you pull it off great! And even though you say you need more clothes, I think you are still putting together great outfits every day! (not that I'm saying more clothes is a bad thing...hahaha) ;)

  25. Your outfit looks amazing! Girl, your waist is so tiny - I am super jealous. You make "belts cinched at the waist" look fantastic.

  36. That skirt is way cool, I love the print. But your shoes are soooooo adorable. Green monster of envy right here- because you are in a warm enough place to wear those shoes and because they are awesome!

  37. haha more cow bell! One of the greatest sketches EVER! You look so pretty in your pictures! I really love how versatile your skirt is, this is a great outfit. I'm with you-I NEED MORE CLOTHES! I haven't done any clothes shopping in months. It's just wrong.

  39. Very cute, Elaine!
    I'm having the opposite problem as you, I need to STOP buying clothes! I keep finding great deals on clothes, so I've decided to save my clothes money for my trip to the 'big city' (Spokane Washington) Forever21, real malls, a bargain center?! AHHHH!!! I'm hyperventalating!

  41. I'm in love with your clogs, and I WANT THEM. I love how a year ago you rarely wore heels, now you wear them like everyday! SO IMPRESSED (because I'm struggling with wearing heels. Running to catch the bus is so difficult.) And you're hilarious.

  42. kimmie, it's because I don't walk as much and I'm getting fatter because of that. At least I'll have hot legs ;).

  43. You have amazing style Elaine. I have Just recently started following you and you have so many awesome outfits! You inspire me!

  44. Love the denim shirt with the skirt. Wish my uninspired looks looked like yours. If only... You look wonderful as usual.

    ReplyDelete
  45. You look fantastic! I love the denim shirt with the skirt. And those shoes - AweSOMENESS! Which pattern did you use to make the skirt? I would love to know so I can flatter you by copying you.

    BTW - My daughter has the same curtain in red....I think I will ask her if she is tired of them yet. ;)

    I just found your blog today - thru 2 different paths...! SO - I am going to be an avid follower.

    Cheers!

    (PS - I love skirts that are not too short. Short skirts make me completely vulnerable and immodest and I HATE that feeling. Thanks for sharing.)

  46. This skirt is one of my favorite pieces that I've seen on your blog, and I was really surprised to learn that you had made it yourself, from curtain-fabric, no less. It easily looks like something one would find at a high-end clothing store.

  47. MORE COWBELL. I wouldn't have resisted either :D Sorry this comment is pretty worthless, but I figured I'd let you know that I laughed more than I should have.
