Whatcha Wearin’ Wednesday and The Taste of Vomit in My Mouth

Sometimes when I try to go out of my comfort zone and be trendy, things just go horribly wrong. Take this outfit, which I bravely wore to Bunco the other night:

That little make-any-tank-top-modest sweater was in my closet leftover from back when they were cool. (Oh wait, was that ever?) I don’t know why I still have it. Probably just to keep me humble in situations like this. I really should throw it away I think.

I paired it with my teal Costco tank top that I love so much I also bought it in salmon roe (the colour, you see, of salmon roe) despite the minor—yet not to be ignored—detail that salmon roe is quite possibly the worst colour I could ever wear.

The thing that sealed this outfit’s fate in the Oops Files is the fact that I asked Poor Kyle what he thought of it and he said it made my boobs look big. He’s got a point, but it’s not necessarily a point that makes me want to wear this outfit ever again for all the days of my life. (I hate boobs, in case you didn’t know.)

I should’ve changed the entire getup right then and there, but I was already five minutes late to Bunco (intentionally, because I know all about being fashionably late, or in my case just late) but to be any later than that would’ve been awkward. So instead I threw in a hair flower in the hopes of distracting all the Bunco women from the masses under my chin.

Which it might have done, but I think in the process the flower just called more attention to the fact that I had stupidly tried to curl my too-short hair with a flat iron (a la Hairdresser on Fire) earlier that day, which really just made me look sloppy. Poor overworked flower.

Still, I do like my flower, and that’s good because there are 24 more of them where that one came from, but I’ll tell you about them tomorrow (HOORAY, TOMORROW IS NOW TODAY, and YOU CAN WIN A FLOWER HERE).

As for today, I would just like to publicly apologise to that fashionable population of humanity for falling so short of the mark.

I do try, guys.

For whatever that’s worth.

Hey, Niki, you never said that What We’re Wearing actually has to look good.

    When I saw the pics of the flower I though ” how cute is camilles hair”!!! No joke. Then I read on and realized you didn’t like it. I like it! And big boobs are fantastic!

  2. Jake says:

    Camille, you are hilarious. Keep it up.

  3. Liz says:

    I must have terrible fashion sense, too because I thought you looked great. I like it all. And your hair looked fine.

  4. Alaina says:

    You had me at taste of vomit. I think you look fabulous, and having an outfit excentuate your boobs? Not always a bad thing :-)

    I think the outfit looks great on you and i could not see ANY lumps under your chin… but you did look hot. So if you didn’t want to look hot, you should have put on an oversized grandpa sweater, some torn up jeans and a scrunchie in your hair, and gone as that nerdy girl who hides in the corner hoping nobody will see her.

    I think your outfit was the better choice.

    I absolutely loved your hair and the flower. I didn’t think the outfit was half bad either. I really like the tank.

    I think the entire thing is adorable on you! I love outfits that make my boobs look bigger than they are. :) Also, the red hutch with the adorable dishes is a tease. I need a bigger picture! Hope you and Kyle are doing well. Shall we plan a reunion in Cayman for next summer? We can dream at least…

    Remember how I used to tell you when the girls looked good and pk like me for it?

    I was actually thinking about how cute your hair looked curled and how much I adore short hair on you.

    Camille! i don’t know what you are talking about!!! You look soo good!

    I too have short hair and want to know how to curl it with a flat iron — and that flower headband? LOVE!!!!

    Also, this post made me think “if only I had a boobage problem too…” *sigh* but alas, I don’t and never will… boo.
