I Hate When This Happens.

If you know me, you know I love me some button-downs. Denim, flannel, you name it, I got it, and probably wear one at least once a week. They're my go-to when all else, aka my brain, fails. I love them so much that restricting them to solely upper body use was getting to be almost unbearable... almost. Thankfully though, on the fateful day of August 7th, 2012, I had one of my genius light bulb moments that made the restriction obsolete once and for all.

Do you see where I'm going with this? Here's the picture link. Now? No? I never ended up getting one of my dad's shirts, but fortunately for me I love buying shit a size too big and opted to use one of my own for my little experiment. I unbuttoned the top three or so buttons, slipped the shirt up my legs, tied the arms around my waist, unbuttoned the last button for a petite slit effect, and voilĂ , I did it. I successfully made my shirt into a bottom. I was so excited for its public debut when my mom stopped me before walking out of my house. Appalled by my outfit, she insisted that I change. She simply did not get it. She can be such a square sometimes, but I listened to her anyway and oh how I wish I hadn't.  Before I got back to DC, someone far more known on the blogosphere published pictures very similar to what I had had in mind.
Don't you hate when that happens?

Chiara from The Blonde Salad wearing a Stefanel sweater, Minusey skirt, Annie Bing leather jacket, Burberry creepers, and a Givenchy Antigona bag. Despite beating me to it, at least she motivated me to actually wear  my ensemble out I guess? This time I even have photographic evidence! It's a bit blurry, and I'm also footless, but it's a picture nonetheless.

And not just one, but four of me, who really love ice cream. A lot.
