But here are my outfits the past couple days. I wasn't kidding when I said that I was taking a couple days off. I started to feel sick on Thursday night, and and so we canceled our NYE plans and had take out and Taiwanese New Wave film night. We were able to connect through phone calls with nice friends that night (they were drunk, we were sober), so it still felt fun. Honestly, though, going out on NYE is kind of a hassle in this town, unless you're going somewhere walking distance away. And we were able to see the Prospect Park fireworks from our 5th floor, West facing window. It was pretty awesome.
I wore this outfit on New Years Eve and New Year's Day. I think if I could exclusively wear knits everyday, I would be a happy gal.
I enjoyed reading Cynthia's discussion about clothes purging yesterday, I bought this dress (Blokey calls it "corporate hotel moss green"- he's not a fan) my first semester teaching here in New York, the day I flew out, right before giving a final exam. I was cranky (I had to move my ticket back 3 days because I had misread the final exam schedule), exhausted, and was looking to "treat myself." But I find this dress difficult to style (low neckline, empire waist, short sleeves, clingy knit fabric that makes layering look bulky) so it may have to go into the donate pile, even though I bought it full price (unless someone here might want it?)
Happy Sunday, Style Nation. Here's a great New Year!
