The Look of Welfare


I was asked if I was going to be paying with food stamps at the cash register today at the grocery store. I’ve never been asked that before, so it makes me wonder. . . is this what it looks like to be on welfare? Granted, I had a grandpa cardigan & an oversized pashmina on, but everything else was the same. Was it the heels that tipped her off or was it the two kids in tow? Scratch all that. I bet she could tell that I spent less than $25 on my entire outfit.

  • earrings: made by me, $2
  • blazer: thrifted, $4
  • necklace: RiteAid, in high school?
  • top: Shade, $10
  • cords: Gap, gift from mom
  • shoes: Payless, $5

TOTAL: $21

Anyone following Project runway? These earrings are an ode to Anya’s cool wing earrings. I want to steal those earrings right off her ears. Also, I might have a little girl crush on Anya. She’s got serious style.
