This outfit is a little different because, well, I wore it to the gym. Normally, gym clothes are pretty uninspired, but I've been watching a lot of Audrey Hepburn movies lately and I just had to show off this top. I found it all lonely and calling out to me at a Salvation Army thrift store and I had to take it home. Someone screen printed beautiful Audrey on it. The outfit is also greatly inspired by (okay..I'll admit it) the movie Flashdance. I'm a little ashamed of that fact because the whole off-the-shoulder-hey-look-at-me-I'm-from-the-80's-even-though-I-was-born-when-they-were-half-way-over look has been done so often, but there is something I like about it nonetheless. Also, I haven't been able to listen to much of anything else but "Gloria" by Laura Branigan since I seeing the movie Flashdance for the first time a few months ago. Watch the music video below and you'll understand.
SHIRT // thrifted
WORK-OUT PANTS // handmedown
SHOES // i'm pretty sure that i got them at hot topic.. which is weird for me.. i also saw the same exact pair at a nearby goodwill store a few weeks ago
PIN // thrifted, it says "too cool to do drugs"..which i thought was too cool to pass up
I also wanted to post my gym outfit because today marked the first time that I've been to a gym in a long time..to say the least. I've been on a budget lately - saving up for my big move out to California. I'm going to be driving out west from Connecticut and I could probably buy my weight in Mimolette cheese with the amount of money I'll be spending on gas (you probably don't know this, but I LOVE cheese.. and if you haven't tasted Mimolette, save up your money for about a month and go buy a quarter pound..yeah, it's that expensive and that good).
So, in an effort to save a little I've been avoiding membership fees at the gym. Sadly, all that cheese is catching up to me and I do need to start exercising again (dancing in my room while my parents are out isn't really doing it for my glutes), so my friend and I decided to start attending $10 drop-in classes here and there. Tonight we did Zumba. Oh. My. Goodness. I haven't perspired that much since I running the mile in elementary school. It was intense, but so fun. Tomorrow? Yoga! Don't worry, I won't post a gym outfit again.. at least not until another 80's movie inspires me to do so.
Prepare to be entranced..
