Mmmm Bagel...



Hai guys! What's up with you on this fine Friday evening? I hope you have something badass planned, and if not, I hope you at least eat some ice cream and watch a movie, because that's what Friday's all about. All I'm doing is seeing my mom later... no big deal. Except that it is! I'm so excited!

Also, I could really go for a bagel right now. Toasted, plain, with some cucumber and red onion cream cheese. I miss Bagels on Broadway. They didn't make bagels the correct way, but they were so delicious, and the only place in Missoula to get decent bagels. Greg worked there and he would sometimes bring me free bagels. One time he gave me two huge bags of bagels and cream cheese to bring to work! It was amazing; everybody loved me best at work that day. Bagels.











I'm wearing: Target skirt and shoes, Old Navy tee, thrifted belt.


This skirt is ridiculous, and I only still wear it because the floral pattern is amazing with super awesome colors. My problem with it is that the elastic got all wonky somehow, so it's kinda like... twisted, and the fabric does not hang properly from it. The nature of the waist also makes it so that my waist looks two sizes bigger than it actually is, which is annoying, because my waist is my only asset. Wah! And yet I wear this skirt... because I have pretty much only two skirts.

BAGEL. I wish Greg was a bagel summoner instead of just a bagel baker, because then he could summon me a freshly baked bagel including cream cheese, and I could eat it while watching him play the FFXIV beta. BAGEL. Bagel... bagel.

The elastic in my skirt that is like that, but a different print, would also get messed up. So I went around every couple inches and sewed a vertical line to keep the elastic in place so it would stop twisting.

The Bagels on Broadway cucumber and red onion cream cheese is the best!

WELL Rose, mine is now fucked up beyond repair. And not everyone can be as smart as you with your sewing skills! <3

Uuuugggh bagel...

You're not the only one with skirt malfunctions today. I've been having a love/hate relationship with this skirt I'm wearing all day because the tiers are making my hips quite a bit more noticeable... haha.

The pattern looks really cute on you though! And I'm lovin' on those cheetah print shoes!

Have fun with your mom! That second to last picture of you might just be my favorite in all of history!!! (Haha, a little dramatic, no?)

gee said...

I could really go for a bagel. They are so yummy!!! I have 2 skirts from forever21 that both do that...it drive me insane. But they are cheap so whatever. Haha.. Have a great weekend XooX

Ugh, it's really annoying when the elastic gets all twisted up inside the casing. If you have a sewing machine, you could try running a zigzag stitch the whole way around to hold it in place, maybe.

Everyone looks at me funny for this, but my favorite bagel combination is a raisin bagel with lox cream cheese. I know raisins and fish don't really sound like they go together, but I swear it's delicious.

Hehehe, i loved your bagel rant. I'm a fan of bagels too and i do crave them quite often so I feel your pain.

Im so in love with the pattern of your skirt as well! And i don't think it makes your waist look wide at all, it looks great on you!

You should come with me sometime to get a bagel from Kenny and Zuke's. I've never had one of their bagels and they look might good.

Love the skirt+belt combo! And you're making me miss my leopard print flats. :/

enna. said...

Yeah, that would be MIGHTY. Herp.

I really want a bagel now!

Love the skirt, the floral is stunning & I really like it with the tan belt :)
It's a pity the elastic is crap :(
No-one will notice though

Ali said...

I love your leopard flats! :) They're super cute, as is your skirt. <333

Kate Maggie said...

I love the unexpected leopard flats! you always look so good. You know those people who just look cool no matter what? And it almost seems effortles? Yeah - thats you. x

Helen said...

You cannot get decent bagels anywhere near where I live. ANYWHERE. Yet another reason why I can't wait for my NYC trip! You look fab, as always x

Hehe. I was going to say; all you're doing is seeing your mom? Seriously, bagel making should be a national priority and not generally reserved to locations with high bagel making Jewish populations. In a perfect world...

Anyway, I LOVE you skirt! The print is so cute! But the waist band sounds dreadful. I'm not sure if this would help you at all, but once when one of my elastics got twisted my mom cut a slit in the waist band so that we could twist the elastic back to its normal flat/un-wonky self. Oh, and awesome shoes! Love the pattern.

I just finished a delightful bagle! :) Also, I am totes copying this entire outfit, I love the floral with the leopard.

Helen said...

this is so cute! i love the contrast in the floral and leopard prints.

Love how simply stylish this is, very effortless. Simple grey T with lovely floral skirt and mixmatched with leopard print flats (I have some just like those!)

Mmm gotta love bagels; cinnemon and raisin flavour all the way ;)

yay to bagels, I had one for lunch with tuna, sweetcorn, mayo, gherkins, tomato, lettuce and grilled cheese YUM!!! Your skirt is great, I love the belt paired with it and don't be silly, your waist looks tiny! xx

yessaidyes said...

So I totally have the same target skirt but in a lighter floral color print. It did the same thing with the waist. I'm glad to see other people offer you some suggestions because they might help me out too!

I love the combination of patterns with your shoes/skirt. Very cute!

Kyla said...

I love this! Anytime someone uses leopard print as a neutral, I get a little giddy inside :)
