AA Anyone?

Today I decided to obnoxiously deck myself out in American Apparel. Good thing I didn't go into the store, for I would have looked like a groupie that just wanted to sleep with the merchandise, get myself pregnant, and birth racerback tanks and snug bandage dresses. If that could happen, I wouldn't need money anymore. Does it hurt giving birth to sweatshop-free jersey material?
I bought a pair of gold sandals for only $23 during my excursion downtown, as well as a pair of lovely and simple black Ked's, which I will be wearing always.

I have a dilemma of sorts. You see, I am throwing this shin-dig of a barbecue at my home in a couple of days, and I thought I had the perfect outfit, but now I am having second thoughts! I always have to have the perfect outfit for important events such as this (which include boys, hardly any of which I am interested in, unfortunately. But such is life). I'm sure I will be sweating buckets about my ensemble soon, so I will be sure to drop some of my verbal sweat onto a page for you all to read. Until then, I wish you a happy Thursday!

I adore this outfit! I have no qualms about being an AA groupie.

dood i've been totally eyeing that neon skirt too!!

about the photos...i upload mine onto imageshack and always resize it to fit a 19" monitor. the files are ginormous otherwise. then i just upload the photos under the large format. tried dragging in the corners once to make it smaller, but that took away the function of enlarging it so i don't even play with it anymore.

sorry i just kinda rambled. hopefully you'll find something useful! xx

Love the neon skirt. I'm always afraid to wear a lot of AA at once as well, I mean I don't even own that much from there I don't want to look like groupie either! Good luck with the bbq planning and outfit decision making.

If you do start birthing sweatshop free jersey clothes could I please adopt one or two or twelve? I promise I'll take really good care of them!

The colors are really fantastic together!

Thank you sweetie. I love your skirt. I made the thank you for all of the readers, especially you, who are so sweet and always leave me the best comments. I felt I owed it to you guys, especially with getting some rude anonymous comments lately (that have made me moderate the blog) the positive fans deserved a spotlight! ♥

I have the same issue with Primark over here - sometimes without thinking I can wear ALL Primark - including socks and hats. Good luck with the outfit! You should post it so we can let you know our verdict :)
