(Fashionalbly?) late to the party, but I know a true style party never quits. ;)
I've been working some odd hours and feeling fairly exhausted, but I finally made it around to participate in MaryK's 2012 challenge.
This outfit feels "so 2012" to me because:
- It is an interpretation of a Hugo Boss ad I pinned (Pinterest feels very current IMO)
- It combines items from a few different styles and eras (1940s engineer boots, the utility style jacket from who knows how many decades of militaria, the 90s bucket bag, 80s eye-searing brights).
- It integrates a flash of optic white into a winter outfit, in keeping with the aughties trend of breaking traditional fashion rules (e.g. no white after Labor Day).
Pic #1 is what I wore after work to meet my sister for lunch at a delightfully overcast beachfront restaurant. Pic #2 is the version I wore for m7 second 6-hour, 5am shift in a row. The Veras worked nicely for this kind of shift - lots of standing still to reticket newly discounted merch.
