Coughing fit today. Coughing my internal organs out. Not fun. As a perfect attendance student, I never miss a day of school. For the first time, I took yesterday off to rest, in hope that I would get better today so I could do my literature performance and government debate. Fever is gone, and now it's just really terrible coughing and stuffy noses.
Saba Blazer from Goodwill, shirt from F21, bowtie from 6% Dokidoki, American Eagle pants
For my performance in literature, I played mafia boss!Othello. In groups, we were to take the Shakespeare text and put it in a different setting. I had a paper mustache for the performance too. I was planning on wearing a tie to look more formal, but tying ties is one of my disabilities.
This is that one Saba blazer that I found at Goodwill. The quality of this thing is amazing. I'm not usually a fan of shoulder padding (I cut them out of vintage pieces because I can't stand them), but the padding in this blazer is really flattering. The fabric is nice, and it feels almost like a tux.
Though they're usually on sale, a blazer from Saba has about a $300 retail price. Makes me kind of happy that I got this one for $7. When I tried it on, I wondered why it felt so tight for a size 8. Apparently, Australian size 8's equal to a US size 4. It's been a while since I've worn a size 4. Nowadays I just buy everything with elastic.
