A demon at maths and science...

Blouse: Urban Outfitters
Skirt: Vintage
Top-siders: A shop in Nantucket

Today's outfit was inspired by yesterday's post. It's very old fashioned and reminds me of a college girl in the 40's. There are actually two items that I showed yesterday, the blouse and the shoes. I actually got the blouse in the mail today, along with a few other things I bought on sale on both Urban Outfitters and Free People.

In preparation for going to college I cleaned out my closet for the first time since 9th grade (I've organized it, but never cleared it out fully). I didn't know that I had so much stuff. I ended up throwing out two garbage bags full of stuff along with four plastic shopping bags full of additional junk and gave away about 10 items of clothing to my little sister. I did discover a few cool things, like two vintage corduroy skirts that I need to hem and a pair of snake skin heels from the 60's. Overall, I feel better, like I have a clearer mind, with an organized. Plus, now there's more room for new clothes.



My sister took a lot of pictures so I made a little video clip. I wanted to make a gif, but I couldn't figure out how for the life of me!
