Do you ever just feel like trying something different? I do. And this particular ensemble was one of those times. Cuz sometimes you just gotta say “fuck it” and listen to your gut. I’ve has this drop-dead gorgeous vintage dress hanging in my closet for some time, looking at it longingly every time I went to dress myself. But it just never felt quite right- it’s a bit classic for my taste. And I couldn’t quite figure out how to give it that dash of edge...until yesterday. My gut spoke to me. And before I knew it I was putting that dress on over my fave pair of destroyed denim.
“Well this is...different.” I thought, as I turned around to examine my reflection in the mirror. You see, listening to your gut can be...scary. Our gut simply does not realize that when it comes to fashion and style, there is fiiiiiine line between “good weird” and “bad weird”. Good weird encompasses the edgy and the eclectic. Bad weird encompasses...well, just plain old weird. But still, ignoring your gut is an absolutely unforgivable fashion faux pas. After all, If you can’t trust your gut, which is like, your absolute you-est you...then who can you trust? I’ve found that my personal style icons seem to throw all caution to the wind, laughing in the face of trends, and strictly dressing via gut. So, upon realizing this, I went with it.
“Ok...I think we’re onto something here...” I thought to myself, my brain scrambling to find some sort of rhyme or reason to justify the ensemble. And then it came to me: “Jackie O. meets Courtney Love.” I exclaimed in my head as I eyed myself up and down in the mirror. Fuck yes. My gut was officially onto something...classic vintage grunge. It’s a thing. You heard it here first ;)
Until next time,
