{outfit} The Misfits

Yesterday I decided to play dress up and style a few pieces that don't get much wear.  I didn't actually wear this in public but I wanted to experiment. I'm going to try to play with my clothes more often now that I don't go into an office.  First, The Valentino jacket I got for $2 in The Outnet birthday sale last year. I've only worn it a handful of times because it's a little big. Next up is a REALLY old skirt from Aeropostale that I got to wear on Easter when I was in 8th or 9th grade. I haven't worn it in years, and now that I finally did I think I need to retire it. It's a teeeeeeny bit too short.

Lastly, my awesome Alexander Wang Freja booties, these aren't exactly misfits, but I haven't worn them in a few months.  I wore these a lot through Fall and Winter but now that we're into Spring and Summer I'm finding it hard to style them. I'm going to try my hardest to wear them at least a couple times over the next few months before they come back into full swing in Fall. (except one is a little tight because one foot is bigger than the other! GRRR! They fit fine with tights though.)

Jacket: Valentino (The Outnet Birthday Sale) $2, Skirt: Aeropostale old, Booties: Alexander Wang (The Outnet) birthday gift, Sunglasses: Michael Kors (Marshalls) $20, Watch: Michael Kors, Harry Potter iPhone Case c/o Zazzle
