Intertextualism

    On Tuesday, La Historiadora de Moda of Fashionable Academics wrote about how she is often inspired by other bloggers in putting together her own outfits.  Little did I know that the very next day, Wednesday, I would be calling upon one of her previous outfits to put together one of my own.  If you follow Fashionable Academics, and I definitely recommend that you do, you might remember this post in which La Historiadora de Moda listed her top 5 teaching outfits for 2009.  Her #1 favorite outfit was a red skirt, black turtleneck and purple tights and belt.  Well yesterday, while I was getting dressed I decided I wanted to wear this purple wrap shirt dress again, but wanted to make it look different.  Thinking of LHdM's previous outfit, I grabbed my wide red belt, black tights and boots and found myself happily invoking her style wisdom in my own way.
   For whatever reason, as you might tell from the past few days' worth of outfits, I like wearing dresses when its cold.  I think its because its unexpected and I like wearing tights.  But I'm not really sure.  Either way, I felt really great and confident in this outfit all day long.  And it was a long day.  Last night was our Dress for Success program in which yours truly got to model.  The point of the program was to show the first year class women what they should and should not wear to interviews.  I'll put together a post later that shows some of us modeling and showing what is to be expected at an interview and what should not be worn to an interview.  
    Just an FYI, pretend like my hair is down and curly and that I'm wearing black tights in these pictures.  I got home and forgot to take pics, so I got in PJs and ate dinner.  Then realized that this outfit was just too cute not to post, so I got dressed again real quick.  But by then my tights had been discarded and my hair was already up.  So, just pretend, k? 



The Details:
Purple Dress: Target
Black Tank: Old Navy
Black Tights: L'Eggs
Black Boots: Target
Red Belt: Target


See? Even Bella appreciates my outfit :)
