Peanut butter and jelly. Lennon and McCartney. Shampoo and conditioner. Vodka and anything.
When it comes to fashion combos I like femme and edge with a splash of vodka. I'm a fairly feminine dresser, but I don't generally like the overly girlie (read: foo foo) aesthetic for myself. So I love the idea of adding "harder" pieces to funk up an outfit a bit. Take, for example, what I wore to work today
(Forgive me, I'm still trying to perfect the art of the selfie)
I got this flowy, soft dress somewhere on clearance and felt like I needed to turn up the volume and turn down the princess factor. Enter black leather. I knew I'd be running like a fool in the showroom (work) today so I added my perfectly-beat-to-shit motorcycle boots. Last, but not least, my standard issue hardware. Today it was all the rings and chunky silver chain.
I followed a similar recipe on New Year's Eve this year..
1 part fluffy vintage prom dress
2 parts knee high gladiator platforms
several parts vodka
Try it, you might like it.
