When: Monday December 6, 2010

Striped turtleneck: ? (Panama)
Red skirt: Forever XXI
Purple shirtdress: Conway (Panama)
Brown tights: Target
Caramel boots: Old Navy
Brown Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Maxx
Heart earrings: Fire & Ice

Where: Went to class and made a schedule for my last couple of days in the U.S.

When I got dressed this morning and looked at myself in the mirror I suddenly thought: "Oh dear, I look like an Oompa Loompa". I was late for class, so I had no time to change and this ended up being the outfit of the day... hahaha. The more and more I look at it, the more I think I look like an Oompa Loompa from the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie.

I do however love the colors in today's outfit! I rarely pair red and purple together, so it is always fun when I do manage to make an outfit with both colors. At least Oompa Loompa's live in a place full of candy and sweets, so I guess it's not
that bad to be an Oompa Loompa after all... hehe
