Last month I decided to enter another pinup contest at the last minute. Unfortunately I had just bought a SD card and taken the photos without knowing that it had to be formatted first (WTF KMART?!?). I finally bought a SD card reader so I was able to get these up. The theme was red, white and blue and I was having a hard time coming up with a good costume idea. Then I remembered that last Halloween I bought a few Lady Gaga costumes including the American Flag costume. So I paired the top and bandana from that with an 80s bathing suit, some red heels and a red, white and blue headband that I wore on the 4th of July. Voila!

The idea here was to do a red, white and blue outfit. I wasn’t going to do this because I lack much red clothing (I don’t think that it flatters my coloring) and had already done this similar Style File post last month, except that one was red, white and green instead of red, white and blue. However when I bought these super cute star flip flops recently I knew that I had to try to put an outfit together.

I feel the need to point out that I am aware that the exposure on these photos sucks but I do have the terrible Pennsylvania weather to blame for that. We only get about 59 sunny days per year. I did try to lighten them as much as I could to show the clothes. I wear this tank top a lot during the summer. In fact, you can go see 2 past outfits that I wore it with here and here.

As for wear-ability, the last time that I wore this skirt I wore leggings under it. Apparently when you wear it like this you get sweaty and feel like you are wearing a trash bag as a skirt. Also it was the first time that I wore these flip flops and I was squeaking while walking through a store (I sounded like a broken grocery cart), no bueno. So I probably will wear those items mainly around my backyard in the future if we’re having a cookout/swimming or whatever.

I only wore this medal at my house for fun for this pic. My mother won it recently at the Senior Games.
