OOTD: Chunky Knit Sweater Dress
Today marks the end of my last Fall semester at the university and I couldn't have ended it better than with my Politics of Fashion class. There were so many eclectic personalities in that course and they really drove me to challenge notions of fashion in society.
I probably committed my own fashion 'no-no's ' today by 1) Wearing a dress that is too long (the back of it, that is) on my 5 foot stature and 2) Wearing black and shades of brown together. Who cares?! I like the contradicting pieces, I was comfortable, warm and felt that it really is a testament to how I like to style myself; not according to trends, but according to my tastes.
I finally was able to wear my chunky knit sweater dress that I picked up in New York a bit over a month ago. I love how warm it keeps me and the little details of the slouchy pockets to the elbow patches on to the back of it being much longer than the front; it makes me love it even more. It has such personality! I spruced up the outfit with my favorite and newest purchase: the spiked headband! Thankfully it was a hit and interested people. I also had to throw on the obligatory rings that I am currently obsessing and collecting (pun intended because of my blog URL name, haha)
If there's one way to identify what I love, it would have to be: nail polish, rings and shoes. I feel like those things encompass "me" and it helps that people already code me with those pieces.
Anywho, enjoy the post and the Christmas movies playing on ABC Family!
