Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Escapism


Soooo before I start the actual post, I'm aware that few [...or none?] of my readers live in my area, buuuuut I thought I'd throw this out just in case: 
I'll be walking in this fashion show for a local secondhand shop I recently discovered. 

Yep, I'm gonna be in a little fashion show.  :)  It's not like a big deal or anything--I'm not suddenly thinking I'm the next Karlie Kloss--but I'm still super-excited, because:

a.)Um, it's a fashion show and Imma be in it.
b.) It's for a great cause (the business was started to make sure all girls could attend prom/special events regardless of budget [they rent prom dresses/tuxes as well as sell them and other vintage/gently-used clothing]).
c.) I get to wear a fabulous dress from the 40s (a black, ruffle-y, one-shoulder number, WOO!).

So.  On the off-chance that anyone lives near Grafton, WI (not my hometown, but close),
COME AND SUPPORT Stephanie's Prom Closet
and see me strut my stuff! 
And I'll be attempting to white-girl shake my groove thang at the dance after the runway show (which--thrust me--will be enough entertainment to make the cover charge worth it).
If you can't come, then just do me a favor and pray that I don't fall flat on my face.



Anyway, on to the OOTD:




So my facial expressions in all these photos (taken by my mommy; thanks mommy!) seem to imply that I'm in pain....
Well, yours would, too if it were below zero degrees outside and you were trying to take outfit photos!!  :-P
So please cut me a little slack.  (You always do anyway, my darling readers: you keep coming back even when my photos are far from stellar.)




So THIS BLAZER.  THIS BLAZER.  It's sosososo good. 

I had a GAP giftcard from Christmas, and I was planning on taking it right to the winter clearance and walking out with my arms loaded, buuuuut then something happened.  I walked past this blazer on the way to the clearance, and simply could not shake it from my mind as I was trying everything else on.  And that's because nothing compared to it.  So I figured, what are giftcards for?  I'm pretty sure it was the most expensive thing in the GAP store, but it was worth my giftcard plus a couple extra bucks.  Casually elegant, yet age-appropriate and comfy as heck (it's a very think, but malleable sweatshirt-y fabric).  Implies nautical flair without being too in-your-face, and can (and will) be dressed up or down.


Something about this outfit made me think of a flight attendant's uniform...feminine lapel + neck scarf, maybe?  My subconscious is probably just obsessing over ways to get me on a plane to warmer climes.

There was something this outfit that irked me: my stupid leggings.  I could not get them to stay inside my booties!  Mostly for looks, but I also wanted them there for warmth... +sigh+  It's so hard being me, sometimes.  ;)
