Service Dog

As I modeled the ensembles for Tomato and Olive week, Beefy observed that a theme seemed to result in more cohesive outfits. He took that back when he saw this one.


Striped turtleneck, Gap (swap). Scarf, thrifted. Skirt, Herman Geist (stolen and shortened). Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Miz Mooz. Ring (I put it on later in the photo shoot), swap. Earrings (also forgot to put on at first), No Boundaries.

He was convinced that someone would remark on this crazy mix at the office. No one said a word.

I love this outfit! It's totally "out there," but I love it. So quirky.

I love your end line "No one said a word."
How can they be immune to your awesome compilations?

I just love how your USMC service cap appears in at least one picture a day. You're going to make your other hats jealous. lol

By the By, have you ever been to a Blog meet-up? and do u think there's enough of us to have a mid-western on this spring?
( notice the subtle use of 'us'...)
it could be a really big undertaking, or a really small one.
Hmmmm............

Maybe by then my waist will fit my leather pants better. Yep, they hurt. I gotta stop wearing elastic ;)

i don't think u've ever actually been wearing the hat... :D it would mess up ur hair though i guess. with that furcoat outfit, the hat would have been very interesting.

[u're on the home page of cincinnatdotcom, btw.]

I really like that skirt, it's really unique. How often do people say things at your work?

My favourite of the week so far!!

Kasmira said...

Vanessa and My Heart Blogged - I very rarely get comments about my outfits at work. Usually they are compliments about my shoes.

Reva - that sounds fun!

Lady Lipstick said...

OMG I love it!!! I love the mixing of patterns and textures! And they somewhat all stay in the same color family so I think its just beautiful!!

Oh! What does it say about me that I think this outfit is completely cohesive? I LOVE it! To my eye, this completely makes sense, and the individual components really come together quite well. I am loving this challenge that you set for yourself- it's incredibly fun!

I love the stripey top with this outfit - a daring mix! Those boots, though...they kill me. So beautiful.
