While roaming through the town of my alma mater (I'm so mature), my ingenious self came up with a marvelous idea:
I play dress up while simultaneously having a purpose.
Rarely do I buy an piece of clothing with the intention of wearing it by itself.
From the moment the cash hits the counter, I'm fantasizing ways to masculinize,
de-flatterize and Pocahontify the potentially straight-forward item.
So on this (hopefully) first of Five Ways Fridays, I address the Sundress Epidemic - the idea that sundresses need to fly solo. Let's layer-it-up son.
|dress: Urban Outfitters (similar and here)|
Exhibit A: The naked sundress. Originally purchased with Italian shores in mind - it quickly found its way to the bottom of my suitcase after one terrifyingly unsolicited whistle.
|boots: Good Style Shop (similar), belt. J.Crew (very similar)|
Footwear fit for a soldier. Always a good choice. And the belt helps both with figure awkwardness & overall hipster vibe. Picture it in different colors - yellow, red, green...etc, etc.. I could have demonstrated said variations, but that would have forced me to confront the fact that I am, in fact, a belt hoarder.
Want to give up on figure-flattering all together? See above.
A denim vest works with everything.
I'm not joking.
It's like balsamic vinegar.
Strawberries and denim.
|boots: Lucky Brand, vest: Gap (on eBay), belt: Italy (similar)|
Leather leather makes everything better.
Unless, of course, you're a member of PETA. In which case, cows are my favorite.
Hunter meets grandfather meets 5-year-old girl. Very me.
And, as usual, I take a theme to the extreme. Would you say this more schoolgirl-esque or grandfather owl? Both?
All together now! (this is the songgg thatt nevveerrr enddss...):
|one of these things is not like the other|
Which would you wear? Which wouldn't you?
You know me - the more the merrier.
