I said I would do something crazy, this week, and I delivered. So, yeah. You're welcome and all that. Hehe. ;P~ Actually, I had a total blast wearing this outfit. It's so me. Loud and proud. >:DDD
I bet ya'll thought there was only one way to wear this vintage rainbow plaid tuxedo ruffle shirt dress. Whew that was a mouthful. o_O Well, you were wrong! >:D OK. Granted, it did take some major brain juices on my part, but it was well worth putting my noggin' through the old strainer. Somehow, I managed to clash like you wouldn't f*cking believe, but still produce something pleasing to the eye.
Like most great things, the idea to wear two dresses just came to me. I knew that some dark patterned fabric would be the best compliment for the bright plaid. I didn't have a dark patterned skirt, otherwise I would have tucked the dress into it. I scanned my closet for something---anything---with dark fabric and patterns and the vintage black/white polka dot dress stood out like an oasis in the desert. :DDD
I put the polka dot dress on my mannequin and then I left the plaid shirt dress open and just put it on top and I had a mental freak out moment. I thought, "Eureka! I did it. That's it. I'm done." So simple, yet so god damn amazing. Just look at this sh*t, you guys!? The colors and patterns look really awesome!
Also, I wasn't even thinking about this at all, but I realized when I put the two dresses on that I ended up with four pockets! I put stuff in all of them, as well! Haha. That's why I didn't carry a handbag. :DDD
Adding the kaleidoscope sunglasses was a no brainer, too. All of the colors in the outfit popped without being intensely overwhelming. I think this is the best work I've done all year. Usually, I'm not that stoked about 90% of the outfits I put together. Only a few really make me think, 'Yeah, you did good, kid. You did real good." >_< I'm suuuuper self-deprecating, but not this time. I'm really satisfied with this. <3
Oh and if you're too young to get the pun in the title, here you go. ;]~
