Frump-O-Rama



So I have a question for you guys. If I were to start a blog shop, one of those "shop my closet" things, would it be an awesome thing, or a kind of omg why is she jumping on the bandwagon thing? I love it when bloggers open little shops, but you never know, so I figure some feedback would be good. I really need to get rid of a lot of the clothes I no longer wear, so I figure I could offer them up for cheapo to you guys. Thoughts?







I'm wearing: F21 skirt, Heather's sweater, Hot Topic t-shirt, necklace and earrings from Mom.


I dressed like a total frump on Monday. I wasn't going to even post these, but I feel like a blogging slacker, so I am going to anyway. The only thing I could think when looking at these was "omg I need to learn about makeup." Seriously. I mean, not crazy makeup with bronzer and fifty layers of foundation, but at least... something to make me look like I didn't just wake up from a thousand-year sleep in my sarcophagus. Or something to make me look not twelve. My glasses do a lovely job of hiding my ineptitude, but sometimes I just don't want to wear them in photos, and then what?

I watched The Social Network with Greg a few days ago. It turned out to be pretty awesome! I never thought a movie about Facebook could be so intriguing. Have you guys seen it? What did you think?

I have a wee shoppe on my blog where I sell some of my old things. I think they are a good idea! I haven't sold anything from it, but it is always there and it gets a lot of pageviews because viewers are wanting a little looky!

Highly recommend it!

you are not a frump-o-rama you are so cute!! star trek tee FTW!

I've been thinking about the whole blog shop thing too... I didn't want people to think i was a loser for opening one & i'm also pretty sure no one will buy anything but i might do it anyways. You should definitely open one!! I will buy your stuff if i can fit my big old self into any of it! Sell accessories! haha

I think blogshops are great, especially for people like me who live in towns without Buffalo Exchanges and Crossroads, etc! Also, the Social Network was great, I lovelovelove Andrew Garfield in everything he's done, but did you know Justin Timberlake thought he should have been nominated for an Oscar? Come on Justin, you're a popstar.

I love the Star Trek shirt,I think it is a pretty cool idea for you to start your own blogshop.

The Social Network was pretty cool,I rather enjoyed it.

Also I totally dig the Heather's sweater.

As far as learning about makeup, can I suggest Pixiwoos on Youtube? They rock! And they are British :)

I don't think you look like a frump! I actually really like this outfit! It's nice and casual :)

I just experimented with makeup, I pretty much only wear eyeliner and blusher and I honestly still have no idea how to put eyeliner on! I just put it on my lid see where it goes then match the other eye up haha! I watched a couple videos on Panacea's youtube just to get some hints which really helped even though the stuff she does is totally like going out makeup but whatever, it helped me! :) Her youtube is: http://www.youtube.com/user/panace1a81 Have a good week/weekend! :)

Oh and I forgot to say I thought Social Network was really good too! Kinda depressing though (at least for me). Didn't know JT could act either but that was a pleasant surprise.

Heather said...

Oh I see, so my sweater equals frumpiness? Hmph. Hah, I kid. I personally think you look awesome, as you always do. And there isn't anything wrong with your makeup! I say, embrace looking younger! In ten years, you'll be super thankful for it. I look like a baby with or without makeup but whatever! Anyway, definitely open a blog shop! Maybe I'll see something I want and we can just forever trade (I'm slacking on the striped dress front) Haha.

I just happened upon your blog, and I'm so excited I did because it's awesome!! I would love to see you open a shop my closet type shop, and I agree about The Social Network!

Mugdha said...

I think a blog shop is a great idea! I love looking through other bloggers' closets even if I don't buy anything, haha.

CAITLIN said...

this is totally non-frumpy! you're crazy :p

i finally got around to watching the social network recently and i also really liked it! i'm totally anti-facebook and think that it has basically ruined our generation (but that's another story), but it was definitely interesting to see how such a phenomenon took off. it definitely made mark zuckerberg look like a complete douche (though maybe kind of a sympathetic one?).

Watching Star Trek while reading a blog entry with someone wearing a Star Trek t-shirt = awesome.

You are terribly cute, I think your blogshop would be a fine idea!

Lovely look as always, love that fun tee paired with the skirt -adorbs! And that sweater is so sweet + cozy. As for opening a shop, such a great idea. I think it's a great way to sell off clothes. xx veronika

MEG! I have missed you!

I love the skirt and you know that I dig the T, yoiu can't go wrong with a sweet cardi like that either! :)

Hrmm... I thin if you were going to start wearing makeup, try eyeliner and mascara first? I would just play around to see waht you like. I went from heavy eye makeup to just mascara and blush so you never know. You have pretty skin though, so you really don't have to worry about it :)

I haven't seen The Social Network at all but I would like to!
I love your outfit. so wonderful.
if you ever got a little shop I'd probably end up buying a top or something. I used to have one of those little shops and surprisingly people really do buy things through them but not often enough haha.

Sophie said...
