I think I took the "Remix" and "Old" of Keely & Megan Mae's Fashion Challenge: Remix Week a little too seriously. I mean, sure, I remixed every other piece of clothing in this outfit, but there's nothing like taking a challenge to the next level by wearing a vintage belt as a a bracelet.
I'm not convinced I pulled it off - I wore this outfit to dinner with my grandparents, and my grandmother automatically assumed I'd injured myself in the move. I felt so betrayed by Scott - I had asked him if it was "bad ass, or bad idea" and he had said "bad ass". Admittedly, I would have chosen that too, had I been him, even if I thought it was a bad idea, since I'd just spent the last 20 minutes raging against my closet, unable to find something suitable to wear.
Tensor-bandage comparison or not, I like the outfit (the lighting, from taking my picture in the dark, not so much, but we'll see how well I work work the "Auto-fix" button in photoshop). Both the top and jeans are thrifted, and the bracelet/belt I stole from my mother's closet and figure it's from the 70s or maybe 80s... you know, back when "genuine leather" meant the whole thing was leather, and not just a thin surface over whatever vinyl or plastic product the manufacturer could find.
