Daily: Juxtaposivity

This weekend consisted of spending time with friends away from campus, cheesecake, coffee, Lion King 3D, sleeping in and reorganizing my room. My friends and I can’t help but notice that the weekends just seem to be getting better and better. If only we could stay seniors forever. Here’s the breakdown:

Dress: Garage sale (Rodarte for Target)
Cardigan: Garage sale (Banana Republic)
Tights: Kohl’s
Boots: Garage sale
Belt: Garage sale
Watch: Garage sale
Bracelets: My grandma’s/Garage sale
Rings: Rue21

I read an article over the weekend that said the best personal style happens when you juxtapose certain items that wouldn’t normally “match.” Opposites really do attract, so I stuck to that philosophy when choosing my outfit. The femininity of the lace on the dress and the pattern in the tights really juxtaposes with the leather ankle boots that might look more appropriate on a rocker than with a lacy dress. But you know what? I’m okay with juxtaposivity. And yes, I just made up that word.
