OUTFIT//ONE TRICK PONY

Well, as these things go - once I find something I like, I run it into the ground. Is anyone else like this? It's a quasi-addictive personality thing for sure. In this case, I'm running these One Teaspoon shorts and Gucci crossover heels into the ground like roots.

SHOP THE SHORTS

Same shorts, same channel. This time worn with a men's (DUH) APC sweatshirt from many seasons ago. Yes it's LA, we can wear sweatshirts with short-shorts and SOMEHOW this makes sense.

SHOP SPORTY SWEATSHIRTS!

A jacket, not for "styling purposes, but for those very real moments of walking into a building that is CRANKING the ac. 

SHOP KIMONO STYLE JACKETS! 

Knotted in the back - is the built in belt.

Annnddd without. So long! 

WEAR MEN'S CLOTHES... FOREVA'

Surprise, NOT surprise... I'm wearing men's clothes. Not just men's clothes in my size, actual men's clothes in sizes too damned large to be worn by me, but that's the whole point of the look: OVERSIZED, slightly off. 

You might ask why I do this  - welp. It's because I appreciate the fabrics and details in men's clothing... 

If a garment is good and CAN be worked into a look - I say go for it. Wearing these men's shorts meant, wearing pieces that mirror it's dimensions. Hence, boxy men's sweatshirt and jacket.

The sweatshirt is also camo for the mayhem underneath...aka the large shorts! Belted.

Do they bulk up with the belt? Yes. Nothing a little Jooszhing can't fix. Pushing extra fabric to the sides. 

Toss the oversized jacket on for good measure.  Check the great details!

The only thing that isn't menswear. Three words that scare straight men to death: PONY. HAIR. MULES.

HOW MUCH FUN ARE YOU HAVING WITH YOUR CLOTHES?

I've heard women from all walks of life tell me how uninspired they are with their wardrobes. That's no good and should be remedied, stat.

But digging deeper, there's another layer- which is literally having fun with clothing because what you're wearing has a story, makes you laugh, is ironic... you see where I'm going right?

It's important to have a little fun with your wardrobe. Enter this 1980's bootleg Gucci sweatshirt!

This sweatshirt is hilarious because Gucci didn't make this. It was a bootleg made in the 80's, which was found on Ebay, made it's way into my closet and then onto my body. It's vintage kinda' and confusing for sure. Anywhere I wear it, it either starts a conversation, furrows brows of people trying to figure out if it's "real" or side eye from people who think I'm really wearing a Gucci sweatshirt. Jokes on you suckas... or me... whatever.

Check out the baggy 80's fit! YES! Paired with baggy RTA jeans to balance proportions and make the "slouchy" thing, a THING.

Pulling from the color/theme in the sweatshirt - my jeans and my kicks are faded black as well. Nike SBs picking up the yellow and red. Also, notice the gold lace accessories? Again, bringing old things back for fun!

Speaking of old things as the theme. Remember the first generation IPOD? OHHH! You don't? Sigh.

Finally topping off the look with a fun camo jacket in the same color family, but refining the look some. Leather sleeves and great construction add some luxe to my look.

Thatsaboutit!

PERSONAL DARE:: 3 WAY PRINT MIX IN BLACK AND WHITE

Ever dare yourself to wear something "out there" because it's too boring to be safe? Even if it means you might make people dizzy just by looking at your outfit? Yeeaaahhh.... I did that.

What you're seeing: 3 separates. Slouchy check pants, a quasi-polka dot blouse, under a short sleeved sweatshirt.

I have two safety nets: #1 everything is black and white, hence easier to digest

#2 It's all anchored with a black jacket and black boots.

We'll see if I get more cheers or jeers on these mean streets! Kidding. Who cares.

One of these days, wear something that scares you (the good kind of scared)
