scathingly something-or-other

This past March, you may recall, I did a series of posts emulating some of my favorite bloggers’ styles:

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.

My right breast is the singularity. Try not to look too hard.

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.

  1. a slightly more fitted bodice with no sleeves and some nice thick straps would look so so so good on this dress. Also i liek dose perpel tites.

  2. This IS something she’d wear, too funny:) And I’m so sorry about living without your bra, you poor thing. I HATE going without mine…it’s so uncomfortable! 😦
