Close, Very Close

My week has been spent in my bed, eating copious amounts of sunflower seeds while writing papers and preparing for presentations. I haven't even gotten a chance to wash my hair! When not tying it up in a bun of shame, I can mold it anyway my heart desires. Points!

But on Wednesday I did tear myself away from my sunflower seeds and bedside heater long enough to buy a long sleeve body suit at American Apparel (they were having a 30% off sale for Concordia students, so what the heck). Despite my distaste for the company (mainly that the staff make me uncomfortable and I always feel like they think I'm on the brink of stealing something!) there is one piece in my wardrobe that I go to again and again and its my American Apparel short sleeved leotard. I've gone through 3 in the past four years...So you know, I'm not calling for a boycott.

Considering getting a body con suit as well. Have to say I love your school field outfit and your hair. I really am beginning to think I must have been a redhead in a previous life, I love the colour so much.

The staff can be pretty annoying, but American Apparel has a special place n my heart for standing up for workers and immigrants rights. Mind you, all I own from there are a couple of t-shirts...

leotards are always so versatile. I think it's a great buy and is worth buying over and over!

OMG your hair is gorgeous! The employees at my American Apparel store are weird too, I don't like going in there anymore. :(

xxx kissmequick

Fleur-de-Lis said...

Oh gosh, your hair is superb**

Sophi said...

Hehee I love my hair after not washing it for a couple days. It's so easily styled and, um... texturized!

I have mixed feelings about AA, too. Their pieces are great, but sometimes the quality can be lacking--and that's all aside from the sheer creepiness of their CEO.

You look awesome in the unitard and the leotard though. You should be an AA model :)
