OOTD :: of more sequins and the walk of shame




Why does the walk of shame always involve sex? Can one have a walk of shame if one was simply inebriated and slept off a night of partying at someone else’s pad sans intercourse?

If no to the latter, then I rescind my subject title. But that was my intent when I paired a preppy argyle and Chucks with saucy sequins – a cheeky juxtaposition reminiscent of my college years when I would party all night then have to go to class the following morning but partied clear across campus from my apartment so had no choice but to try to make my party outfit day appropriate for lecture halls.

(Yeah, I got a lot out of my college education. Thanks, Mom and Dad!)

Naughty implications notwithstanding, I do like this particular pairing because it’s so blatantly in opposition of the other and we all know how much I love me a strong contrast. Methinks it has a lot to do with my being the quintessential Gemini.

I also like how I’ve wrested a fancy-pants fabric from its nighttime niche and yanked it solidly into pseudo-appropriate daytime territory. I say “pseudo-appropriate” because most of you may not work in such a fashion forgiving environment like I, but perhaps you can sport a similar look in other aspects of your life?

I’m decidedly blue today, but imagine this ensemble with a Doctor Who graphic tee instead of the argyle vest and you’d get the same vibe while being linkup compliant in yet another way.

    LOL, and reminiscing as well about those party nights! I had a great boss who never “noticed” if I wore the same outfit and messy hair two days in a row : > You look fab, xox.

  5. This look is awesome. Can you link it up to my Top of the World Style linkup party that goes up on Thursday on http://www.highlatitudestyle.com ? Thanks

    I’d wear this…maybe without the vest. I love dichotomy in outfits!! jodie

  7. You are brave my friend! My school dress code allows for a lot but I’m not sure I could get away with a sequined skirt. But then again, I’ve never tried…

    • mtsedwards says:

      Ah, I bet you could pull off my sequined number form yesterday. The sequins were more sedate, the color is right up your alley and the cut is very school-appropriate. Do it! Do it! /says the instigator

  8. Great OOTD today!

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
