This past March, you may recall, I did a series of posts emulating some of my favorite bloggers’ styles:
- March 12: Rebecca of Winnipeg Style
- March 14: Marisa of Shades of Monet Chronicles
- March 18: Rachel of Floral Prints and Common Sense
- March 21: Bebe of Fated to be Hated
I had a lot of fun with that theme. I even got some feedback from the bloggers in question! Creativity, I’ve always found, is enhanced by boundaries and deadlines. Working within strict parameters jogs the mind.
Today I’m resurrecting my emulation streak. This outfit is inspired by Kate of Scathingly Brilliant.
I am not wearing a bra today. I was advised by my tattooist not to do so until my new jack-o’-lantern tattoo, located under my right arm, is fully healed. So I’ve been doing the ganja-gobbling earth-mama thing for the past few days. I thought I might feel all subversive-sexy, but instead my breasts just really, really hurt. Damn you D-cups.
This dress, though. I first tried it on at Old Gold a few months ago and thought instantly of Scathingly Brilliant. (The pin, I think, intensifies the effect.) I passed it up because living expenses, but then last weekend it was marked down to $5. Yeah, that’s right. $5 at Old Gold. It’s only a matter of time before I start pitching a tent in the doorway the night before sales.
I’m probably going to modify this bodice. I’d prefer it slightly more fitted, with no sleeves and some nice thick straps.
Belt on belt.
My right breast is the singularity. Try not to look too hard.
