Know Your Onion!

Is a good song by The Shins. It also refers to how many layers I wear. I'm nowhere near as skilled at this as the undispute queen of layering Susie Bubble but it's sort of my signature where I come from. It's also a little bit about practicality, I'm almost always wearing at least 2 more layers than everyone else and I'm still cold. But I also get warm really easily, no idea what's going on there, shitty homeostasis (well I remember one thing from GCSE science, so that's nice)
Monday's outfit was rather many layered, so I thought I'd break it down for you.

As you can see I also had a vest top underneath, but its a tad see through and I don't intend this to be some kind of (very) soft porn site.

Well that was Monday, so now Today:

I had massive stomper boots on and was unfortunately wearing my Topshop military coat. Looked a bit like a Nazi. Now I've said Nazi and porn in this post. Its a good day. This top makes me look like a tudor as well. Great.
Speaking of nazi's, the horse that won the Grand National was called Comply Or Die which I think sounds a little bit like a fascist slogan.
Anyway, Coleen McLoughlin wore Balenciaga to the National. She isn't the most annoying celebrity and to be quite frank sometimes she doesn't dress too badly. For a WAG. You would think having that amount of money would sort your wardrobe out quite nicely but apparently not (See most other WAGs)

It is ok. She takes away the wow factor I think, it just looks nice. In a way this is good as it shows someone of a normal size an wear one of these dresses and look good. She doesn't look bad, but it could have been so much better.

Jealous! I am terrible at layering...I just end up looking, well...fat. You pull it off remarkably well, natch. And yeah I know what you mean about the scarf...I do that too, but sometimes it seems a little boring. Oh, and the emo thing! Sometimes I hate my haircut because my cousin calls me "emo" (what a jerk), but I wanted something short for the warm months!

whooooh you are too good at layering. i love the top shirt, and the dress, and the blue shirt and... ok everything pretty much... sigh definitely with with e.jay here, i am terribly horrible with the layering, but i still do it since i'd rather look fat then freeze my ass off.

Nazi porn! Love love love your boots. And that dress is soooo pretty, but you're right, she is boring. I hate when people with that much money have bad style. They can buy the best stuff!!

The Balenciaga dress does NOT work on that girl.
