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+ last 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 those 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,  but 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.

Porno Shoes

Sergio Ross nude peep toe pumps

There are hot shoes, and there are pornographic shoes.

Some shoes say, “Fuck me.” These Sergio Rossi platform peep toes say, “Fuck my shoes.”

Depending on the company you keep, and the kinds of dates you go on, this may or may not be the message you want your shoes sending. 😉

Cuff Me

Enamel Skull Cuff by Alexander McQueen

Enamel Skull Cuff by Alexander McQueen

I’m currently obsessed with this lilac beauty. I think I’m going to have to acquire it soon. And I think that once I do, it will quickly find itself playing a recurring role in my daily wardrobe. Maybe mostly because it’s a perfect accompaniment to my new favorite shoes.

Spotted

The Sara by Doc Martens

Sara by Doc Martens, worn with red tights.

I’ve been in love with high contrast looks for awhile. I’ve also always had a bit of a thing for oxfords. When I saw these spotted high-heeled lovelies while walking by the Doc Martens store in Seattle a few months back, I had to rush in and try them on. After I got into the store, I fell in love a little more when I discovered that they’re done in a hair-on leather…so they’re pettable!

Obviously, I did more than just try them on that day. I made them my own, and promptly took them home with me.

My favorite way to wear them is as above, with red tights. The part of the outfit that you don’t see is the black dress and black sweater with white-striped shawl collar. I was loving my look that day.
