I wore this to a benefit pancake breakfast last weekend:
Top: Dorothy Perkins
Pants: Tripp twill skinny pants via Buffalo Exchange
Shoes: Simple eco-sneaks
I rarely post pictures of myself in sneakers, but let's face it: I wear them a lot more than I used to. These eco-friendly cousins of the ubiquitous Converse version are my usual pair, but I also love my weird suede and canvas beige New Balance sneakers.
While I was out wearing this, I was approached by someone who recognized me from my outfit posts on the Fatshionista! Livejournal community. This is the second time that has happened to me, and both times it was within blocks of my house. Flattering or creepy? Both? I am not gonna lie, I was totally flattered. It made me want to make good on a suggestion an online friend made that I get my husband a tshirt that says, "My Wife is a Fashion Icon" (context: we were discussing seeing Iman in a Bowie shirt on Project Runway Canada). Not sure he'd wear it, though.
