Still Wear My Khakis With a Cuff and a Crease

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Outfit Details:
Tiny floral print blouse: thrifted
Thin olive green cardigan: thrifted
Brown and yellow floral bandana: thrifted
Dickies: thrifted
Brown leather loafers: thrifted


(Ten cool points to whoever can tell me what song my title comes from ;-))

I bought these Dickies to go with my chola costume for Halloween a few years ago and while I might have chuckled to myself as I paid for them at the Goodwill (thinking I'd never wear them past Halloween), the jokes on me because I love them! I wear them all the time. Next stop: invest in some spray starch and don't stop spraying until I can get these suckers to stand in a corner.

PS About the giveaways, I didn't make a big post but I contacted the winner of the Scrapbook Giveaway, congrats Kassandra! And while I already picked the winner of the BB Dakota giveaway,  I can't announce until Karmaloop ties up some loose ends!

PPS The store has been updated! I'll make a post showing off the new duds in a day or two :) Check everything out for yourself ova hurrr

  13. Dickies have never properly fit me for some reason, and I've tried different pairs. It's amazing on you! I love how they look with the rest of what you're wearing!

  15. Dang, I see I was beat in identifying the song. Speaking of costumes, any consideration for what you'll be this year?
    I like the look, seems comfy and the color scheme works unexpectedly well.
    Just noticed your twitter feed and I am LOL'n at the cheeto comment. So true. In TX, we have a hot puffs variety and here in MD, there's honey BBQ (no thanks). Any special flavor in CA?
    I had fun with the Karmaloop contest! Especially when I discovered there was a character limit. I was definitely yapping away in Notepad before I copied and pasted.

  21. gahhh such a relaxed and stunning look. perfect for school, i think i might suggest this outfit to those slackers who wear hoodies and baggy pants, this looks just as comfortable, but WAYYYY more chic. love the colour scheme and those loafers. =)

*Had to turn word verification on (even though I personally hate it). I've been getting too many weird spambot comments lately :(
