There is such a thing as too much choice. I like to pick and choose from a conveyor belt instead of having a big fat main course. Some people have THAT dress for every party occasion that they can fall back. I prefer piecing together separates as opposed to relying on the sole power of a dress. More to the point, I don’t have the luxury of having one stunner of a dress. For the On/Off party tomorrow night I have devised outfits that will hopefully
a) Not make me look like a fool
b) Not make me feel like a fool
Quite a simple objective really as I’m in no danger of falling into trap b). a) might be a little trickier to conquer so I have some strategies…
"Girls just wanna have fun" – A whole lotta pink that is hopefully more sharp than sickly seeing as I’ve paired the vintage shirt and PVC flared skirt with some inky black tights and vintage bustier top. The cape also takes the heat off the skirt as well….
"Gwyneth-chic millennium" – Got the phrase from the pilot episode of that show Popular (was I the only one who watched that bit of naffness? The Roland Mouret dress would look a little ‘corporate lunch’ were it not for the leggings and the Zara boots were a 0.99p eBay find
"Casual Sunshine" – This really is like a beach outfit shot with some literal sunshine yellow. The Unconditional skirt is about the dressiest thing about the outfit even though it’s really quite casual and plus, I should get more wear out of these perspex wedges.
"Caught in a Net" – I was unsure about the Ann Sofie Back fishnet body stocking but when worn over things, it works. For some reason, my legs are reminding me of Gwen Stefan circa ‘What you waiting for’. Not sure whether that is a good thing or not.
"I made this myself" – Not sure if I want to be parading around my botched up DIY projects but here is a black trench I customised with an old gold lame dress worn over a H&M brocade dress.
Me personally? I’m veering towards having fun (my choice) or being caught in a net (the boyf’s choice) but you may think otherwise. There’s about 9 hours before I leave the house again and I have never implored for comments on the blog before but for a better mathematical accuracy, the more votes the better! Of course, you could just turn around and say ‘Ick’ to all of them…..
