8. An article of clothing you didn’t think you can pull off.
I am of the firm opinion that if you put something on your body you are already pulling it off, so this is just an article of clothing that is kind of difficult to work into my wardrobe–the sheer yellow skirt. I really need some leggings to wear under it. (All the things I describe as “leggings” are actually long underwear, so they’re not really suitable for the summer.)
Also this outfit is making me a little sad because I was planning a really similar one with my beloved, mostly dead sneakers. (I may be able to patch ‘em up enough for some gentle non-athletic, fashion-only wearing, but I’m not sure.)

I’m wearing a black velvet slip dress that goes to about mid-thigh. Over it, I have on a pleated sheer yellow skirt, which I am in fact wearing as a skirt. The dress and skirt are belted with a wide red belt. I have on a black snapback hat that says “I got dressed today” in rainbow letters across the front; the letters are surrounded my lavender stars. I’m wearing sheer black socks with yellow roses on them. I have on black-and-grey sneakers with white soles. I’m wearing a few colors of eyeshadow smudged around my eyes, and bright red lipstick (on my lips). As always, I have on my round black glasses.]
