Friday has ended in this part of the world but I wanted to do a quick post and share a rare OOTD picture:
I wore my bookish skirt that I received a few weeks ago. I ordered the skirt from Interrobangart, and I believe the fabric was designed by Peacoquette. I love this skirt, it’s perfect for a book lover like me! And you know you’re a total book nerd when you ask your friend to take your picture in the library. Good thing there was one right inside the mall where we grabbed dinner. 🙂
It’s not so obvious in the pic above but I also wore my bookworm necklace:
That shot includes a quote from Learning to Fall by Mina V. Esguerra, a new adult romance featuring a book blogger and a rugby player. The necklace was from Accessorize, it came with a set of random letters which I then tried to form words with. I didn’t have the right number of letters to form “bibliophile” but I’m happy enough with “bookworm”.
I don’t have a bookish pair of earrings so I wore these instead:
I wish I had more bookish clothes or accessories. I think it would be more fun to get dressed in the morning if that was the case.
On Monday, I received a package that I’ve been waiting for from the UK. I knew right away what it was: the skirts I ordered from Interrobangart.
Aren’t they pretty? I think I was browsing on Instagram when I came across the bookish/library skirt. I think every book blogger would agree with me when I say that I like having book-related items of clothing. I really, really wanted that skirt because I’ve always wanted a bookish skirt or dress that I can wear to work. I even considered ordering bookish fabric from Spoonflower but then I realized that it would be a pain to find someone to sew it into a nice dress or skirt. I eventually gave in to ordering from Interrobangart, even though I initially hesitated because the price was more than I would usually spend on a skirt. And since I was going to pay for shipping, I thought why not order another one? The fairy design caught my eye because it is somewhat related to fairy tales. 😛 Plus blue is my favorite color.
I think the last time I ordered bookish clothes was when I had my Threadless phase, back when their shirts were just around USD 9 each and shipping wasn’t too expensive either. I haven’t worn those shirts in ages! Mostly because I’ve gained weight and I look like a sausage in them. 😦 I’m going to think positively and say that I hope I can fit in them again soon.
Do you have bookish items of clothing too? Any tips on where else I can buy them that wouldn’t cost too much? My usual worry is that shipping to Singapore will be expensive.
