I watched the AMAs last night and quickly realized I am sooo not 'in' fashion. Because I don't own black leggings, a black leather jacket or black rider-style boots, add a 4" stilletto heel, and of course I don't have any of that sparkly midnight blue eyeshadow because obviously Adam Lambert went ahead and bought America's stock in it. Sadly, I don't own an unflattering gold boxing outfit (and come to think of it, no one chants "champ" when I walk into the arena room either, dammit) nor do I one enough Ace bandages to pull off either Rhianna's or Lady Gaga's outfits.
Woe is me.
So I went to Target today to find these outfits and well, yeah. I love me some Target but they don't exactly have J. Lo's boxing outfit in the women's or junior's section, although I did find plenty of ace bandages in the First Aid section next to the tampons. I guess that's a start, right?
TANGENT: I find it more than ironic that tampons are conveniently placed next to the First Aid kits. That is all.
Like all these celebrities, I've decided to reinvent myself. Fashionably. Like, as in, by getting some fashion sense at all would be a good place to start, I suppose. Wearing jeans and t-shirts, grandma sweaters, chucks and slathering on a good couple coats of jet black double volume mascara and lip teasing with Burts Bees lip balm completes my current "style" so... someone alert Tim Gunn or that Carson dude and tell them to fix me - except in a way that I still feel like I'm wearing comfortably worn jeans and tees and chucks without having to show a little leg or bicep. (Hey, the gun show is not free.)
In the meantime, while I sit here doing nothing about my current "style situation," I did photograph a completely random stranger's boots at Disneyland the other day because I loved them and now find myself searching HIGH and low to find them. Yeah. You try googling "blackish maybe leather? worn looking women's boots with blue zipper" and see what you find. Or searching through Zappo's 3,000+ women's boots to find those exact ones. Riiiiiight.
So I'm offering a reward. If you can find these exact boots (above) somewhere on the internet for sale, I'll send you a $20 Starbucks gift card.* Because I am bat shit crazy needing-to-find-them-even-though-I-probably-can't-afford-them-and-might-not-even-like-them-if-I-did over them.
In the meantime, whose personal style do you love? I like Rachel Bilson's, I think. Vintage-y.
*To the first person to find those EXACT boots.
