Choke Me

While I hate the idea of a “uniform”- this has DEFINITELY become my go-to Summer 2013 ensemble. A silk vintage nightgown maxi dress, simple sandals, & a baseball cap (so that I don’t have to brush my hair...obvi). When it comes to style, I’m not much of a minimalist, so I needed something to up the wattage of this ensemble a bit...and that something was a choker. As of late, my general consensus on chokers is that I like ‘em real thick n’ juicy. It all started with ManRepeller...remember when she wrapped a belt around her neck and called it a day choker? That shit was fly; but I never did acquire the right belt for the job. Whilst perusing the resort collections, my desire to be ‘choked’, so to speak, intensified. It started with those thick-ass chokers at Rag and Bone, which I have every intention of DIY-ing...considering it’s essentially just an overpriced lil strip o’ black fabric fastened around her neck. But it’s so sunny and beautiful out...ain’t nobody got time for DIY’s. So when I saw those simple little scarves tied around the model’s neck at Derek Lam I  thought to myself, “Now THAT I can do.” So, I fashioned myself a little choker with a vintage head scarf and voila! Choking fantasy sat-is-fied ;)

Thrift dress & scarf. Dad's hat. F21 sandals.

Until next time,
