A gentleman took my photograph today

With a polaroid camera. I smized. And, to be frank, not my best getup. But, damn, color pops on that cool polaroid. The yellow of that sweater was dreamy.

MLIC is gearing up for a whole heckuva lot of shenanigans come September. First, MLIC HQ will kick off our epic 30 Skirts Hath September event this Thursday, September 1. 30 days of new skirts (new to this blog) (thrifted) (of course)! It's so very exciting.

And if that whole thing ain't enough for you, I will also be participating in The Hunger Challenge beginning September 11. For one week I will attempt to live on $4.72 per day (for food) - the same amount someone on food stamps gets. It's all to draw attention just how damn difficult it is to survive on very little and I'm hoping to also raise a little dough for the SF Food Bank. And, well, maybe also lose those last two pounds I seem to be hanging on to. Bonus!

As for today...thrifted:
  • J Crew pretty golden ruffle neck cashmere/mix cardigan $7
  • Black smocked cotton top $4
  • Khaki linen skirt $5
  • Black boots $10
  • Red/white/cream/black tapestry belt w/silver buckle $2
  • M necklace $5
  • Chunky bead clip ons $1
Not thrifted: old fishnets. That is all.

What I would change about this outfit now that I've seen the photo:
  • Sometimes I think that ponytails are cute. Sometimes I do not.
  • The skirt is a bit short for my comfort.
  • Needs bracelets!
Total outfit cost: $34

P.S. I am getting bored with my outfits. Are you? Should I try a whole new thing? What would that be? Don't say hammer pants because that is coming soon to this here blawg. I know!
