Today’s piece began as a 50 cent Goodwill find. I actually like this shirt as-is and will probably wear it as a light jacket with a black miniskirt and tights for the fall.
However, as you’ve probably figured out by now, this blog isn’t about wearing things as-is. Oh no. :)
I took this shirt and tied it around my waist with the collar tucked in. I paired it with an oversized tee scored from the same 50 cent rack as the striped shirt.
Does anyone notice my new ‘do? :) I was trying to grow my hair out, but I just couldn’t take the mullet look any longer! After watching Gosford Park on Netflix, I decided to go with a chic 30’s style bob. :)
Check out the back!
I wore my hip new shirt-skirt to the (American Advertising Federation) of the Midlands Art Director’s Art Show at 701 Whaley. I’m lucky to have several artistically talented friends, a few of which were featured in this show. :)
This piece was my favorite from the show. You’re looking at a blown-up photograph of the middle of a road somewhere. The artist, Jimmy Higgs recently had a solo show featuring dozens of such photos, all taken from different streets around town. I love the concept, and I love the work!
In case you were wondering what that sticker on my leg was, It’s my name tag!
So…there I was…feeling all creative and whatnot in my fabulous shirtskirt. Then, I saw this skirt from the Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2011 line. :(
Oh well! :/
