No Repeat October - And so it came to an end…

Happy Halloween!  Thank goodness this experiment is over so I can go back to wearing the same outfits over and over again without shame!

No Repeat October - How many days are in this month again?

'Cause I'm getting a wee bit lazy about posting these…

P.S.  I swear to you the poof was not actually that big.  Weird angling happening there.

P.P.S.  Not too sure why these are so blurry?

24 Oct No Repeat October - The calm before the shitshow

This is what I looked like when I left the house this morning.  Trust me when I say my hair was twice this size and 99% of my make up had melted off by the time I got to work this morning an hour and a half later.  So much hate, MTA.  So much hate.

No Repeat October - Strolling and Pumpkin Carving

I finally got to wear my JCrew blazer yesterday!  We went to Katz’s Deli (of Where Harry Met Sally fame) and then walked up to see the puppy costume parade.  Today was spent pumpkin carving and baking with Rosh and Lauren, hence the comfy-casual.

No Repeat October - Two for the price of one

Yeah, yeah, forgot to post yesterday.  Kind of a forgettable outfit, though it was a comfy one and I like the detailing on the turtleneck.  Today’s look of total exhaustion was brought to you by five straight hours of launch, and three more hours of mailings.

19 Oct No Repeat October - Very Alex
This outfit is Very Alex.  This is probably the most Alex outfit I own.  You can’t see it in this photos, but the dots on the dress are actually little bows, and its skirt is pleated beautifully.  I’ve owned these Oxford heels for almost two years now, and I’m not sure I’ll ever love another pair quite as much as them.

18 Oct No Repeat October - Laceeeee
I love this H&M top like you would not believe.  It’s more of a  It’s a little boxy, but I got it a size bigger than usual so it wouldn’t be a midriff on me.  I’ve also been really into doing an Adele/60’s-like poof ponytail, if you couldn’t tell.

17 Oct No Repeat October - Country Road
I finally upgraded to the new iPhone software last night and WOAH.  It is awesome!  The interface is a little different, but I really appreciate the adjustments they made to the camera.
Anyway, here’s a fall outfit for you.  It’s hard to see, but I’m wearing a plaid shirt and dark wash denim pencil skirt. You can tell I watched Downton last night, too, because I always feel the urge to pin my hair back afterwards.  (So far, three people have walked by my cube and asked if I got my hair cut.  Whaaa?)

16 Oct No Repeat October - Errand Day
Had lunch with Rosh today and ran some errands, but I mostly stayed in and cleaned the apartment.  Right now my big debate is whether or not I want to paint an accent wall in my room, but I can’t seem to make any sort of decision on what I want my room to look like.  I did find a shade of blue called “Jamestown Blue” that I’m pretty partial too, for obvious reasons.
I’m a wee bit obsessed with these H&M boots, if you couldn’t tell.

15 Oct No Repeat October - Comic Con Edition

Deeefinitely wore my Last Tour to Endor shirt this morning.  Comic Con was nutso.  Like, escaping the Javits Center was one of the most harrowing experiences of my young adult life.

14 Oct No Repeat October - Rainy Day Purples
There’s not much I can do with my hair in this weather.  Went super comfy today, as you can probably tell.

13 Oct No Repeat October - Cleaned Up
I cleaned my room and made my bed.  I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY ROSHAN.
(I love this cardigan—it’s from Kate Spade and I was oh-so-happy when my mom sent it to me for my birthday this year.)

12 Oct No Repeat October - Don’t Mind the Mess

The answer to your question is, YES.  I never clean my room OR make my bed.
