In my previous "Desert Desperado" post, JuliJohn challenged me to do a "dress-perado" interpretation as well. Well, due to the extreme heat, job interviews, orientations at Dress for Success, and well... not leaving the house otherwise, I hadn't been able to do it. Today, the schedule and weather aligned, and I was able to finally answer the call.
This is a drop-waist dress I obtained from one of our own YLF swap parties layered underneath my Hinge Urban Warrior Poncho. I paired those with my MIA foldover boots and a suede hobo - because nothing says cowboy like suede (at least in my mind). I had thought to wear either my bullet or skull necklace, but they seemed to compete with the cowl neckline. Instead, I strapped on my chunky cat photo watch and called it a day. I think the looseness of the top and dress, plus the earthy leather accessories, helped give off the vibe I was looking for.
What do you think? Challenge met? Please excuse the camera dot on pic #3...
