The Fedora Project Continues...
They say that opposites attract in relationships, but how about clothing? Definitely! This outfit is where punk and prissy meet!
I don't always have an agenda or specific item I am searching for when hitting the stores, but this time I did! I was on the hunt for the girliest dress that existed. Pink, flowers, ruffles... can't get more feminine than that! Scored this dress on the sale rack for only $5.00! To offset the soft, feminine nature of the dress I added a black fedora and my new oxfords! These are not the oxfords I purchased online (See: Dorky Yet So Adorable!), I actually found them at Ross for $12. I am now obsessed with oxfords...they are sooo comfortable! There are currently three pairs happily sitting in my closet and they are just too cute for words! The jewelry I kept simple, although not in my nature, this outfit is pretty busy already. Just a simple silver chain necklace...I dare not leave my neck completely bare!
This studded belt I've had in my collection for some time, but have never worn it. Don't you hate when you buy something and when you get home you realize "I have absolutely nothing to wear with this!" OR even worse...you don't even like what you bought anymore! This is often because us women cannot resist one word...SALE! Due to the fact that I am a repeat offender of buying dumb things that are on sale, I have a rule. Don't buy it if you wouldn't pay full price for it! It really works, and saves me from wasting money or having to return things (which I hate doing!).
So I challenge you...use your inner Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde this week and wear an outfit that totally contradicts itself! Send me your pics if you like!
