Playing with Polyvore…

Somehow, I got pulled in to playing with Polyvore again. If I’m going to spend that time creating sets, I might as well share them. Aren’t I generous? ­čśë

I put this outfit together after receiving a new pair of destroyed denim crops from Forever21, but was too lazy to do more than try them on to make sure they fit. (They were perfect.) I went in to Polyvore looking for other items similar to things I already have in my closet. While I didn’t find the exact jeans or top, the ones I’ve chosen are┬áreally close to what I have.

My blush/nude shirt is from Ann Taylor. I wear my father’s old Seiko gold/navy chronograph. And I have a mustache necklace on the way; no Marni clutch…but I do have the black Prada pumps. What? They were an┬áinvestment. Initially, I’d probably wear this with a shorter pair of black Coach pumps, because I’m not completely recovered from breaking my foot earlier this year.

I can see myself spending a lot of casual downtown days in this outfit.

Strapless Dress Experiment

Strapless lace print satin dress

Strapless lace print satin dress from Forever21

I don’t wear a ton of strapless stuff. This is mostly because finding a strapless bra that doesn’t make my boobs look horrendous has always been a challenge. I saw the above dress from Forever21+┬álast night, and for some reason immediately wanted to wear it over a white shirt and silver tie — which solves the strapless bra conundrum, and allows me to have spectacular looking breasts. So now I’m thinking I may have to buy it so I can make this outfit happen:

Outfit: strapless dress with shirt and tie

Yes, it's monochrome, but there's a time and place for that kind of thing.

Well, not exactly┬áthose items, because sans the dress I already own some version of the rest of the pieces. But that’s a close approximation. I wish I could have found a picture of the Kurt Geiger Carvela shoes I’d want to wear with these, ┬ábut the interwebz were showing me no love on that front — they’re a high-heeled black patent platform pump with a sort of winged wrap near the ankle that’s secured with a thick black ribbon.

The more I think about it, the more I think this may be an experiment worth trying.
