Flip flops, jean shorts, white t and my Bears sweatshirt in honor of the start of their new season and ours: FALL

Baldeesh / September 7, 2008 11:01 PM

Well, I attended a wedding this afternoon and just got home, so we've got on a black skirt, black sleeveless top and a short-sleeve blue plaid jacket that accentuates the hell out of my hourglass figure.

cropped yoga pants and a long sleeve t-shirt of my boyfriend's. makes me feel a bit closer to him when we're apart. (the little things you do in a LDR to make yourself feel better about not being together.)

nothing at all! nothing at all! nothing at all! (shakes heinie)

Mindy / September 8, 2008 8:38 AM

boxers and an old volleyball tshirt from high school

Homer Simpson / September 8, 2008 9:20 AM

Stupid Flanders... White shirt and blue pants.

annie / September 8, 2008 9:45 AM

suit pants and a black v neck top that is a cross between sweater and blouse and heels. I don't like to dress up this much for work usually but these two items do not require ironing so it's helpful to have this stuff around when you wake up late and ride your bike to work.

Jasmine / September 8, 2008 10:13 AM

I'm wearing this: black button down shirt, denim skirt, black flats.

corinna / September 8, 2008 12:39 PM

Metallic flats
Pink circle skirt cherry-picked from a Dumpster
Gray knit top cut into a scoopneck, over a black tee
Handmade necklace purchased at Pitchfork

And that's just what you can see ; )

Ill-fitting shoes. I have tissue stuffed in the toe to keep the heel from slipping, which I learned from a cross-dressing website.

Other than that, long jeans that my ill-fitting shoes make possible to wear. And my standard black kimono-sleeved tshirt.

Desert boot chukkas (tan suede)

Black Carhartt carpenter shorts. A brown leather belt from Filson and a blue oxford long sleeve shirt from LL Bean.

I could have given the same answer 20 years ago

Gaigen / September 8, 2008 1:11 PM

Out my welcome...

Irisheyes1212 / September 8, 2008 1:12 PM

Navy blue Oxford University hoodie, blue jeans (Wranglers, yee haw) and Birkenstocks. I love my job.

annie / September 8, 2008 2:02 PM

I'm also wearing a smile..b/c you're never fully dressed without one and I'm smiling b/c later I can't wait to wear my husband!

Julianna / September 8, 2008 2:20 PM

Grass green tank top and black yoga pants. And lots of dog hair.

snuh / September 8, 2008 3:13 PM

a pleather sweatshirt, a crinoline slip with a green synthetic grass skirt, and a pair of lucite winklepickers. you laugh at me now, but everyone's gonna be wearing this next season. trust.

Steven / September 8, 2008 3:33 PM

Black shoes, black pants, grey sweater. I'm a colorful motherf***er.

Homer / September 8, 2008 4:20 PM

Stupid sexy Flanders!

matt / September 8, 2008 10:07 PM

Graham / September 8, 2008 10:30 PM

Nothin' but a smile, baby!

Wait a minute...uhhh, who's asking??? Oh jeez.

kate / September 9, 2008 10:25 AM

Ugh. Essentially the same thing I wear every other day of the week: Dickies, a beater and some dirt. Though today I have a long sleeve OVER the beater. Layers! Squee!

Leelah / September 9, 2008 1:02 PM

Max Studio dress (v neck, black w/off white circle pattern), black Kate Spade low (chrome) heeled sandals. Betsey Johnson necklace.

Today, I am the high fashion teacher!
