Do you want to pick what my 30th outfit should be?
Head over to the Miss Vinyl Ahoy facebook page to use the Polyvore editor to put together a look for me. (It’s in the tabs)
I loaded the editor with my 30 pieces (or as close as I could find) and some random accessories I own.
If you don’t want to go to facebook/don’t have one, leave me a comment suggesting what you think I should wear as my final outfit.
The outfit that gets picked will win something cool from me. Maybe fashion related, maybe not. I haven’t decided yet. 🙂
PS- feel free to enter as many times as you want. The more options I have, the more confused I’ll be, LOL. Just remember what you suggested, in case I have no idea whose outfit I end up choosing! 🙂
I’ve been working on the “shop my closet” area of this blog for a while. I have clothes that are in good condition but I’m not wearing it for whatever reason. So rather than donate them, I figured I’d put them up here.
If you see something you like, send me an email.
I have a BUNCH of other things to add to it, so I’ll be adding those throughout the next few weeks.
In case you haven’t heard, I’m IFB’s blogger spotlight this week. Check out my interview!
Well, imagine my surprise today when I got a pingback on one of my posts. I was interested in knowing who linked back to me, so I clicked it and guess what I saw?
That’s me! Someone likes ME and my blog enough to write about it on their blog! (My jaw dropped).
I think the sweetest part was agentnikta saying, “Suze if you ever read this, you are adorable!”
Well, thank you so much agentnikta! I can’t believe you like my blog so much to write about it!
And thanks to everyone who reads this. I don’t think I’ve ever said it, but the comments I get from you guys, the posts you write and everything it between makes me smile. I feel like I’m friends with all of you, and I love all your blogs (yes, I do read them all!)
And, in case you want to read the read of what agentnikta said, check it out! (I didn’t know she was writing it until I saw it myself!)

Dress: Vintage, etsy

Rather than wear jeans, which is allowed at my job on Fridays, I decided to wear a vintage dress with leggings and boots. I pretended I was wearing thigh-high leather boots all day, because I’d love to own a pair but cannot afford to.
I got tons of compliments and a few “why are you so dressed up” comments. Well, I’m dressed up because I wanted to wear this dress and it looked dumb with jeans. That’s why! Besides, I could probably wear a toga and get away with it. Ok, maybe not. But you know what I mean. I’m the weird fashion girl at my office, so isn’t it kinda expected that I’ll come in wearing something kinda odd and fun? Maybe not.
I was rockin’ out to The Foxboro Hot Tubs when I was writing this post, thus the name inspiration.
Like I said in my post yesterday, I really like skirts and longer tunic-tops instead of just pants now. I feel like I should supplement my wardrobe with a few more skirts and maybe some more tights. Or, I could just finish sewing the skirt I started on a few weeks ago.
Yeah. Let’s go with that one since I’m always broke!
On one of my most recent shopping trips I picked up a great vintage leather skirt. It’s in super condition and I can’t wait to wear it.
But, I want to make sure I don’t look trampy wearing it, because I plan to wear it to work. Close your mouth and listen to me for a minute. First, it’s not a mini skirt. Second, it’s a pencil skirt, so it covers me from my waist to my knees. Now that we’ve got that settled, let’s discuss the do’s and don’t’s of wearing leather to work.
Leather (or fake leather) is something that is always in style, in some form or another. The easiest way to incorporate it into your current wardrobe is with a belt, shoes or hat. Aside from those common options (we won’t discuss the different styles – it’ll take too long, you see), you could chose to wear leather pants, skirts or jackets.
Let’s chat about leather pants first, shall we?
Unless you’re a biker, heading to a concert or you work in a tattoo shop, leather pants are never a good idea. I wouldn’t recommend EVER wearing them to work, mostly because they can look, well, trampy, especially in an office setting. But, if you’re set on wearing a pair a leather pants, make sure they fit. There is nothing worse than a pair of saggy pants.
Now, a leather coat is always in style. Unless it’s super long, Matrix style. Then you’re outta luck and you’ll look like Keanu Reeves.
Unless you’re going to a Def Leopard concert, I would steer clear of a leather mini (I’m such a buzzkill, aren’t I?). If you’re like me, you work in an office setting. Most of the people I work with are 40+ and wear the same clothes/styles they’ve been wearing for the past 20 years. So it’s a little difficult to try to go to work in a trendy style. To wear a leather pencil skirt might shock some people, but it obviously depends what the skirt is paired with. I think you can wear it with the same things you’d pair a pencil skirt with- a flowy top, cardigan or jacket.
