Concrete Catwalk // Tux & Tails

October 15, 2012

Perhaps a little cliche, but I couldn’t help playing up the hi-lo hemline of this silk dress with an especially glitzy jacket, in a classic tuxedo shape.  Studded boots and neon jewelry tempered the sugarysweet hair-do & floral tights, and the look ended up being a quirky interpretation of one of my many different takes on personal style.

Keep reading for the rest of the look below, and don’t forget: there’s a big announcement happening this week, so be sure to stay tuned for that, and I hope you have a fabulous Monday in the meantime!

    :O One of my favorite looks of yours; I don’t know what it is about this look that makes it perfect for you. Everything is just so quirky yet it all goes well together! P.S. I will not be a spoiler but I’m super excited for your next project (I read about it in your last newsletter; I’m assuming that’s what you’re referring to in this post ;)

    I like the pieces individually but as a look, it doesn’t work. It actually looks clownish.

      Sorry you feel that way, TFC – My quirky style is definitely not for everyone. :)

      To be equally honest, I’m a little surprised to find a comment like this coming from a website that claims to “Empower and enrich women’s lives through development of personal style” and says that you “focus on inspiring positive emotions through healthy living and a healthy self image.”

      Interesting contradiction, but happy to have you pop by and join the conversation regardless!
