Short and '50s


1

Shirt: thrifted Harvé Benard
Skirt: Xi
Belt: eBay
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Lipstick: Revlon Fire and Ice

With the salmon, mint and fit-and-flare silhouette, I feel like this looks really ’50s…but with a scandalously short skirt. I wish this skirt were a bit longer, actually, but I loved the colors and print and had to buy it anyway. I just won’t wear it to work. And yeah, it’s from a store called Xi, it’s not Forever 21 with Roman numerals. It’s this cheap little store that I think is only in Pasadena, though maybe there are other ones (now I’ll have to look it up).

PS: We’re trying to adopt the little cat next to me in the first photo. Our neighbors’ cat had kittens and they don’t want to keep this fluffy little guy and he likes Zeus. Lately he’s been hanging out at our apartment and sometimes spending the night, but since his mom and siblings also live on the property he hasn’t quite made the transition to living with us yet! He likes to go back and stay with them too.

  3. AH! there was an xi near my house in Phoenix, and it was my favorite store in high school ! I've never seen another one since moving away and I was so confused about whether it was a chain or not. fun fun.
