In The Fashionista's Closet: Dressing In The Dark

I literally had to get dressed in the dark because the electricity was off in my building when I got home. Although it was still light out it was dark in my closet so I found my trusty flashlight and searched for an outfit to piece together.
It was very windy out today so I think that was the cause of the power outage.

My building is the red-headed stepchild of my complex, whenever there is a burst pipe or no heat, ours is one of the few buildings affected. 
To quote Gen321, "That's bejank." 
(I am going to start using this phrase in my everyday life.)

A dude that I met at a job fair today called me and asked me if I could come over and fix his daughter's hair for church on Sunday. A dude that I met today. And he called at 9 P.M. AND wanted me to drive to them which is about twenty minutes away.

Say it with me, class "WHERE THEY DO THAT AT?!"
I consider myself a charitable person but that's taking this whole southern hospitality thing a wee bit too far. 

His daughter's hair didn't need to be done, at say 5 o'clock?
He has never met me before today and thus has no clue about my 'hair doing' skills.
I can see this unfolding like a Lifetime Movie and I would be the one yelling at the t.v. "WHY did you go to the house?? You don't know that man!"
I don't even know if he has a daughter. That could be the line he tells poor unsuspecting job fair attendess...

Skirt: (Worn as dress) Thrifted
Jacket: Thrifted
Belt: Vintage
Earrings/bracelets: Forever 21
Clutch (making another appearance): Vintage
Shoes: Steve Madden Luxe

Ummmmmm hmmmmmmm.........I can't make this stuff up people.

For real... where they do that at?!?!?!?

Another great outfit! Love that clutch!

Or maybe he is trying to lure you over with the excuse of doing his daughter's hair to indirectly let you know that he is feeling you...

Cute fit by the way. Take some mace and play it cool. You say you don't like to date so maybe this is an informal type ice breaker! Stay positive...

LOL at job fair dude. You would've ended up the topic of a Dateline mystery!

Very inspiring to pull the longer maxi skirts up as dresses. Cute pattern on this as well.

@Caramelnaps, no he wasn't doing the hiring, he was an attendee but I have a funny followup to his story that I'll share later!
