Overdressed Refugee












































































It's probably the first time in months that my outfit is totally devoid of thrifted items. The oversized slouchy jacket spoke to me when I saw it on the rack. It looks so vintage, so like the stuff your fashionable Dad might have worn in the 70's that I took to it right away. I love retro in mammoth proportions. 

And since the jacket is so colorful, I figured it wouldn't hurt if I throw more colors to this whole outfit, hence the yellow scalloped shorts, yellow loafers and yellow-red combo socks. 

The Avengers shirt I got from a toy store from a recent trip to Baguio. I knew I'd fit in the large kiddie size even without trying it on. Puberty skipped me or didn't like me long enough to give me added height and chest. haha!

If you could be an Avenger, who would you be? Most of you would say Iron Man (who could blame you?) but I'd say Hawkeye. Or at least I'd want his archery skills. I've always wanted to have some kick-ass archery skills and give Katniss Everdeen a run for her money. For some reason, I tend to gravitate towards archers (Katniss, Legolas, Susan Pevensie, Geol-Oh from Sungkyunkwan Scandal and the innumerable archers from the period dramas and movies I watch).

So anyway, I was too colorful today. It's just the perfect outfit to wear on a rainy day, which we were constantly having in the past few days. I sort of envy those who are enjoying their summer break though I grew sick and tired of the unbearable heat in the past two months.

Your comments from my previous post actually brought this outfit to life. I was inspired to be less self-conscious and just be comfortable in whatever clothes I throw myself in. Thank you dear readers for being a source of strength and inspiration. I'll find time this weekend to visit all your blogs and return the love.
