Flashing Lights....

Tuesday, June 9, 2009
I'll be brief: this morning I had dance class, thus, I threw on some nothings (e.g., brown gauchos and a lavender beater with brown and orange flops) and went on about my business with all intentions of wearing this to work with a cover up and some open-toes. However, my boss saw me today during my dance break, therefore leaving me one of two options: a.) go home and change clothes after class (even though I only have 3 fits left to wear for the rest of the week) b.) wear what I have on and jazz it up. Needless to say, I went for the second choice (being the creative fashionista that I truly am). In the line of fashion you always have to be ready to make lounge wear into fab wear. Trust me, I turned it out. I didn't think I could pull it off but I went out on a limb and added a cream linen trench with brown buttons, exchanged the cream belt that came with the jacket for a brown leather belt, did not button any of the buttons, but simply tied the jacket with the belt and went on about my biz. I threw on a mustard beanie and some brown and cream houndstooth open-toes and got it crackin. Since I didn't have my pearls in, I nixed the beanie and let my micros down over my ears for a classic Garnier experience. I guess it worked because my boss asked me if I re-did my micros; and a young Target worker told me I was ON. I said all that to say, when it comes to fashion, playing it safe is for suckas! Get out there and wear the unexpected (before the designers come up with it)!
