Twisted

Last month I lost the camera.

Okay I didn't really lose lose the camera as much as, say, misplaced the camera. But hey, I didn't really know where it was so as far as I was concerned it was lost. How's that for a rabbit trail?

Anyway I found the camera over the weekend. Pretty relieving to see it there, amidst the folded laundry, nestled in the sheepskin rug.  Even more relieving to see a couple of legit outfits on it. I'm not so sure the sequin sweater is still appropriate, but I might give that one a whirl next week because it IS in front of a vintage VW bus and you know how that magic takes hold of me. 

In the meantime I can only say I probably need to put myself on Madewell restrictions seeing as if I get anywhere near the store I can't seem to keep from leaving without a bag. It does happen, but not that often due to a pretty stellar sale section. This skirt falls into the category of 'sporadic purchase turned regular rotation'.  It was one of those moments when my fave shopgirl (who used to work at Martin+Osa so we go way back) employed her mind reading tactics and tossed me into a fitting room with the skirt. 'Just try it,' is her favorite line and she has got it down. In her defense, summer's around the corner and the skirt is a decent price so it came home and is earning its keep in the versatility department. Here's to warmer days ahead!

Now if I can just find a couple of maxi skirts....suggestions welcome!

I had a shirt like that from the Gap in high school. Now I wish I still had it, but it's long gone. And wouldn't fit.

Oh Madewell, it's a dangerous place for me too!
Their sale section always gets me.

As for Maxi skirts, have you looked in Old Navy?

I LOVE that skirt!! That shopgirl is awesome!! I wish we had a Madewell store near me...the closest one is 40 minutes...annoying since there is a mall 5 minutes from my house, haha...
As for maxi skirts...I dunno, I always have a hard time finding a good one because I'm so short

BF has a habit of taking the batteries out of electronics so we have random batteries laying around and can't ever find the right one when we need them. That's why I literally have to keep my own camera in safe keeping - I know, this is a totally random comment stemming from your "almost" lost camera ...

I am such a maxi sucker. So glad you found your camera!

ahha glad you found your camera. I was hoping to see some Bachelorette cracks off on the blog today!?

Alexa said...

Really glad that you found the camera! What a relief! I found a really cute maxi at Target. They actually have several solids and patterns all for good deals!

I wish there was a Madewell closer to me. I have a feeling that the sales are better in-store than they are online, like most retailers. Although that may be a good thing. The fit of that denim shirt you're wearing is seriously making me want it. And I already own a denim shirt. :)

I can't imagine a just world if camera hadn't been found/this outfit hadn't been posted. And that shopgirl? Definitely has your number.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

that skirt is just magic!! Reminds me of the A. Wang one a bit...the navy is perfect with the shirt and the fringe bag! xo

Bonnie said...

I want your bag. And your boots. And your awesome carefree attitude.
That's cool, right?

Love the bag! Looks like a Linea Pelle one I have from a few years back...fringe should never go out of style.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

actually... I think you should continue to go near the store because this look is great on you!!! I love it with those boots too, I never would have thought of that!

Josie said...

You look AMAZING in that skirt! Oh, Carrie, I'd kill for your legs. Love the color too. And that shirt is phenomenal.

I am definitely a fan! I think you will get a lot of use out of it. I tend to buy dresses more than I buy skirts (easier to get dressed with 1 piece of clothing. lol), but I probably should get some more skirts into the lineup... Yay for finding the camera! xo

Lisa said...

i used to have a drapey wrappy perfect skirt like that and somehow got rid of it in a closet binge. i spotted so slim maxi skirts from splendid the other day that i might be revisiting...
in dramatic fashion

LyddieGal said...

that is a fantastic skirt, and this is an awesome outfit. i think i need to revisit my much neglected tulip skirt this weekend.
Chic on the Cheap

I constantly misplace my camera and even worse, the remote for it. Such a pain in the butt! I'm glad you found your though.

I love your outfit- the skirt is awesome!
