Anatomy of an Outfit: I Wanna Be Sedated

January 18, 2013




So apparently you guys are interested in my super limited wardrobe. And with that you’ve inspired me to share what I’m wearing more often.

The Ben Sherman Jacket
I  paid full price for this jacket while my sister and I were on a business trip in Lawrence, Kansas. We had just launched Braid and I just knew this jacket would be the perfect compliment for my new business woman badass self. It was worth every penny.
I donated about three or four nine-to-five business jackets (and matching skirts) from my past life. 

The Ramones T-Shirt
In the seven years I’ve had this shirt I’ve been tempted to get rid of it at least a dozen times. My ex-husband owns a record store and he would get these bizarre shipments of band t-shirts from Kazakhstan. This Ramones t-shirt was in the mix. It’s ill-fitting, a bit too wide in the shoulders and a bit narrow around the hips, but something about it makes the cut every time I go through a closet purge.
I donated all my other band T-shirts. Even the ones that held sentimental value. Even the hand-printed Shins t-shirt I got from a show they played in a basement with an audience of 10 people. I don’t miss them and my memories of those concerts are still just as special and intact. 

The Belt 
I hijacked this belt from Jeremy. It’s the perfect orange-y brown color and goes perfectly with all my black boots.
I donated all my wide waist belts from Forever 21 that I thought were so cute … when I was 21. 

The SkarGorn Jeans 
Yup. These are still the same raw denim jeans I’m wearing for six months straight.
I donated at least 6 pairs of expensive designer denim jeans that I never wear but hung on to because they were so expensive once upon a time. They were worthless in my wardrobe because I never wore them.

The Frye Engineer Boots
They make me feel tough. And like I should own a Triumph motorcycle.
I think I’ll probably keep these boots forever.

The Hair
It makes people curious – which I love. If you guys have questions leave them in the comments and I’ll be happy to answer.
