First things first, congratulations to Jane of Jane + Jen, the lucky winner of TheMilkCo vintage purse giveaway!
A huge thanks to all of you who entered! I'm hoping to do a little giveaway over the holidays, so stay tuned :)
And now, what I wore yesterday. It was dusk-status dark until noon, and it was intermittently pouring. My agenda for the day was the really exciting prospect of sitting in the media lab all day editing my video art piece in FinalCut. All things considered, it was a definite dressing-for-comfort kind of day. Thanks to my mom for snapping some photos :)

I thought it would be neat to show you what I wear on the days when I'm uninspired and more motivated by practical concerns than aesthetic ones. Over break I've been kind of depressed, actually, and I haven't really been pulling out the sartorial stops. Nothing in particular is really eating away at me; it's really just the combination of lame little things. I have tons of assignments due this week, it's been rainy and gloomy outside, I wasn't able to see Alex nearly as much as I'd hoped, neither of my sisters could come home for Thanksgiving, I've been lonely without the social stimulation of college... I spent the whole week almost exclusively listening to The Smiths, which, as much as I love them, can't have helped my mood.
I bought some dark green pearlescent nail polish...
It's quite festive, no?
Anyway, this week is going to be killer in terms of stress levels, but I must say that having classes to attend and places to go will be just the dose of style motivation I need.
What do you like to wear on days when you're feeling down? What do you having going on this week?
