Good afternoon! I finally have a new outfit post...it's been a while, hasn't it been? Boy, I've been busy with school but also trying to balance it with some fun and some money making here and there. This weekend will have me awfully busy but somehow I'm still enjoying myself. I suppose the thought of summer is keeping me going. Summer means staying out late and the sun on my face. Summer brings lovers together again and makes kids out of winter-weary adults. But in the meantime, it's still winter and horribly cold out today. I barely managed any photos today because I was simply uncomfortable and shivering like mad!
I got this done on a bit of a whim last month. Ha! That makes me sound like such a flake...I'd been thinking about this tattoo idea for about a year and what I mean by "on a whim" is that I thought I'd do it in a couple years...but I was bored and wanted to do something spontaneous. So I went into the tattoo shop with my best friend (she's the flake, who didn't get one!) and the guy inside drew it up and inked my skin the next week. For lack of more charismatic words, it's fucking awesome. I get loads of compliments on it (and occasionally truck loads of guys rolling down their windows in below freezing weather to ask me if it's real) and I'm still so shocked that it's there! A good way to start out 2012, I think?
Anyways, so back to this outfit....inspired by Charlie himself! I put the bowler on and from there threw this together. It's sort of reminiscent of this outfit from over two years ago (boy, time flies!) which was also was inspired by Charlie Chaplin, but also Fred Astaire.
