Velvet Lapelles

Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles merch t-shirt, thrifted DIY skirt, DIY bag, thrifted polo, target tights, thrifted sunglasses

I wore this outfit to go see Moonrise Kingdom, which is the best movie I've seen in a while. Since the movie is centered around two children, it seems fitting that my outfit looks like it could be worn by a small child. I've noticed that my wardrobe lately has been trending towards little-girl territory with lots of high collars, knee socks, and my ever-present saddle shoes. Interesting.

The skirt I'm wearing is one I've had for a while, but I got sick of it the other day and decided to shorten it. It was at kind of an awkward place between midi and maxi, and now it's decisively midi. I got the shirt at the Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles concert that I went to last year. It's probably my favorite t-shirt. It's really soft, fits me perfectly, has a cute graphic, and, most importantly, has a great memory attached to it (the band was fantastic). This, for me, is that one garment that I wear usually once a week.

P.S. How fierce are my sunglasses?


  1. The whole outfit is basically a work of art and I want your t-shirt sooooo much

  2. DAYUM GURL YA LOOK FIERCE. Seriously though those sunglasses are way awesome, they remind me of the ~miu miu~ shades from last season. Oh and your skirt is wonderful too.

  3. I just love that outfit!All of it- shoes are amazing!
    definitely going to see Moonrise Kingdom!


  4. That is the best kind of T-shirt! I have a few like that, but I'm far too possessive to wear them as often as I ought to though.

    Ah I want to see Moonrise Kingdom so badly, but my local cinema only showed it for A WEEK. Pathetic. Ill find it somewhere...

  5. The skirt is great, I think you made a wise choice shortening.

  6. Love the whole look. That skirt is beyond amazing!
