Hello! I absolutely love it when my daughter helps out with my fashion posts because her youth and creativity forces me out of my usual style. Whereas I'll always try to stay current or 'in-fashion', Ashley is a lot more artistic than me and helps me bring a more original flair to my outfits. The outfit below was one of Ashley's creations for me when she was home visiting back in November. Everything in the outfit is mine except for the dress. That is one of Ashley's thrift store finds.
This outfit really proves that you can combine and re-create really unique outfits with items already in your closet. I loved the snake skin print dress, but as always, it was too short (and thin) for my comfort zone so I wore it as a tunic. Whenever I see dresses like this I think "Who would actually wear this as a dress? I mean, I would feel so uncomfortable sitting, or bending over and I can't even imagine the peek-a-boo everyone would get if a wind gust suddenly occurred!" LOL! Oh well, maybe they are meant for shorter women. Who knows? In my case, with my long torso and legs, I wore it as a tunic with leggings.THIS POST. I didn't have the foresight to take a picture of the back in that post either. LOL! I think I subconsciously never take pictures of my back side because I don't like my back. I carry a lot of weight in my back, and I'm very round shouldered so my back side is one of my worst features.
Me, Lately post. It looked like I was thinking hard so it was a good pic to use for that post.
What about you? Do you wear spring/summer dresses in the winter? Do you like to be creative with your outfits, or do you stick with what you know? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy
