What I'm Wearing: Mork and Mindy

Greetings, earthlings. I come to you from a planet called Awesome, where my people walk around in metallic leggings and are not stared at like a circus side show. I titled this post "Mork and Mindy" because it's a little space age and a little 80's all rolled into one. Apparently it is customary for people in my small town to stare at me like I just fell from the sky when I wear something a bit different like a sequined sweater and metallic leggings. People wearing Tweety bird shirts have the right to judge my clothing? That's rich.

I found this amazing sweater at the Salvation Army for $2. It's black, has sequins and beaded bows! What's not to love? I love that it's long enough that I can safely pair it with a pair of leggings. I could have went with black or gray leggings, but I saw these babies in my drawer and knew they were the ones. I paired the outfit with some scaly looking pumps and some big chandelier earrings.

Sweater: Salvation Army, Leggings: Forever 21, 
Shoes: Calvin Klein (Karma's Closet Consignment) Earrings: Kohl's

What do you think of this look?

  3. Loving it!! I have a pair of kind of shiny/silver skinnies and I've only worn them once because I feel like they get me too much attention. Maybe I'll get braver and wear them a second time :)

  20. Haha, your text made me laugh! I know what you mean about small town folk that stare the fashion-forward down. At least you know you are 'the' most stylish person around! The metallic leggings rock, I love how you can wear sparkle in the daytime and make it look so effortless.

  25. I just mentioned how cute you are on your latest post so this time I will say that you are darling... truly darling.

    Don't let the "lookers" bother you. You can't help the fact that they make little or no effort each day. You have great style... small town, big city... whatever!

    BTW... that sweater rocks!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
