I've been continuing to dig deep in my closet in search of things I haven't been wearing. I came across a C. Ronson dancing skirt that I bought from Le Train Bleu a while ago. I haven't worn it much as a skirt because I've only worn it a few times for actual dancing. And why would I do that? Because the slit is a bit high for everyday wear. I've worn it as a top a few times, but the wide elastic waistband can make it a little awkward sometimes, not to mention that volumnious skirt worn as a top = dangerously close to maternity wear.
Sleep deprivation has either made me go crazy or just insanely creative (I'd like to think it's the latter). After staying up all night to meet an editorial deadline, I felt like dressing better so that I can feel better for the rest of the day. I spotted the skirt and decided it's time to wear it as a top again. Then I saw an orange tee and thought the colors go together. Then perhaps inspired by a laurel wreath-like necklace I just made for sale, I decided to wear it like a toga by pulling up the hem and pinning it at the collar near my shoulder with a lapel pin I made:
Here's a gratuitous artsy shot of it:
Since the outfit is so crazy, I decided that covering it up a little would make it look better.
Later on, I tried out what would happen if I pulled the hem up to the other shoulder. Hmm...not bad!
I ended up not going out after all yesterday, thus saving the people of my neighborhood from such a blinding sight. Today I decided to revisit the idea in the attempt of coming up with something that won't have to be covered up to look good. It helps that I've finally gotten the chance to do my laundry and have more to work with:
I'm gonna head out soon looking like this. Maybe I'll change into jeans...
