Cuomo Couture8:56 AM
Remember that awesome new project I was talking about? Well here it is! Over the past year I have accepted that the name of the old blog is pretty simple. I had played around with the idea of calling it "This is Sara" but "She is Sara" just had a nice ring to it. I was chatting away with my co-worker Ricky one afternoon and I mentioned that I had a great name for my blog, but I didn't want to change it. Because of my love of sharing personal style and my obvious love for Weezer, I thought a great name for my blog should have been: "Cuomo Couture" (Rivers Cuomo is the lead singer of Weezer if you are a new reader and if you have no idea who Rivers Cuomo is). Instead of tossing out a perfectly good blog name, I decided to go ahead and use the name for a new project instead where I take an outfit of Mr. Cuomo, and recreate it with my own style. Viola! Cuomo Couture.
I have used the beautiful Zooey Deschanel and the amazing Jenny Lewis as inspiration in past outfit posts, so why not my favorite member of Weezer? This is also a challenge if you haven't gathered, because of the fact that Rivers Cuomo, as far as I can tell is a guy and well, as you can tell, I am a girl. I didn't want to attempt any "uni-sex" styles, because quite frankly after selling my soul to Best Buy for 6 months and having to slave away in boring polo's and khakis, I just can't do it. So instead, I am making Rivers super-cool guy style, girl style, which in turn, makes this project even more fun for me.
So here it is folks: The inspiration for my first outfit. I was so happy to have received this jumper from Lauren, and I want to steal it!! It's a good thing that we are neighbors, and that I also get to style this up two more ways before it makes it's way down under (ha! I'm five) to the aussie members of Here to There. Oh and here are some pictures of me in my coat that I got from Value World for $7.00, and it is WARM I tell you! I may look like I am on my way out to feed my non-existing horses, but I am cozy! Oh and also some pictures of me jumping around because the FALL SEMESTER IS OVER!!!
