Dressing School: Fashion Rules!

Good Morning. I have now become the quitessential twenty-something artist type. 11:17 am is when I say "good morning," and I go to my local hipster coffeeshop to write my blog posts. But here I am. Today is the day for the fashion rules. I think this is appropiately ironic because most of you who read this do not need these rules, but I'm going to write them out regardless. Feel free to post additional rules you may have in the comments. (BTW: also ironic because I never get comments.)

Welcome to class...

Having good style is accessable to everyone. It just is. Here are my ten commandments of dressing well. All of these need an explanantion, and I thought I would just hit you with them first, then elaborate on each in separate posts. They are not in order of importance.

1. Buy good shoes.
2. Contrast styles.
3. Don't follow trends like they're your religion. Use them, then throw them away.
4. Have good hair. Not trendy hair, good hair. Hair that YOU like.
5. Contrast silouettes. If you have something loose on top, wear something fitted on bottom, and vice versa.
6. You can wear any neutral with any other neutral always. (Neutrals are navy, black, white, cream, brown, grey)
7. Don't wear athletic clothes unless you're working out, or working in a profession that requires you to.
8. Wear things you're comfortable in. (Rule 7 still applies people.)
9. Always plan to have one daring or interesting piece to your outfit. (But don't go overboard.)
10. Take good care of your clothes, and keep them free of lint and pet hair.


HalloWear - Day 3

Halloween is coming up, and this is the perfect time to justify buying something you really like, but will never wear in real life.

Because...Guess what? Halloween is not real life. Best news ever in my opinion. Which is why I am going to drag it out over 4 nights.

4 nights of wearing things I really like, but wouldn't wear any other time. Perfection.

Also, since this is not real life, my first post is going to be about Day 3.

Day 3, Saturday October 29, 2011
The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Shorts: Madewell
Pantyhose: American Apparel
Jacket: Modcloth
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Bracelet: My grandmothers dress up box
Earrings: Modcloth
Top: Anthropologie

I feel a little silly doing this, because everyone does this... people do this so much that there's a million and one blogs out there where people share what they think, and hope that other people will be inspired.

But that's exactly what this is.

It just is.

Hopefully it can stay fresh.

But one thing is for sure, it will be supa fly.

So get ready, cause here I come.
