Razzle dazzle! o_O O_o *opens curtains and bangs pots and pans* Carpe diem and all that, bitches! :D Wakey Wakeeyyyy! Haha. I got your hangover helper, right here. If this outfit doesn't wake you up and/or make you want to drink yourself blind just to spare you from the clashing prints then I dunno what will. >=] People will either love this or hate it. Even I was a little bit on the fence about it.
This mix of prints brought me so much joy, though. I felt happy just looking at it. I got the idea, last summer. Initially, I tried on the apple print dress with the corduroy houndstooth pants and the dress was too bunchy. Yes, that IS a dress, people. Magic! Hehe. Click here to see it full length. The pants sat too low on my waist and the waist was just too big to begin with. I was obsessed with this pairing. So, I got the pants tailored. The seamstress added an extra two inches in length and took in the waist a bit for me. I wasn't able to wear the combo last Fall or this Winter, so I couldn't wait for Spring to arrive.
You can totally see where the waist of the dress is, too. Haha. I typically don't care about that, though. All I care about is achieving what I set out to achieve (i.e. to combine two radical prints that I love and make it work). In that regard, the additional two inches of height on my waist band really helped. ^_^
I don't care if this look is unpalatable to a majority of people. The mix of prints made me so happy. I was giddy all f*cking day and it was this combination that inspired me to alter my pants in the first place. Heh. I've never had a piece of clothing altered *just* so that I could wear it with some other piece in my wardrobe. It's a crazy outfit, but I'm owning it. I take full responsibility for your temporary blindness. ;P
