backwards and sideways

On Saturday night I was Matt's date for a formal, so I thought I'd continue with this week's theme of wearing see-through clothing, but this time intentionally.

The top is actually a vest that I'm wearing backwards (it came with some Size 0 lace bell-bottoms which were AWESOME, but more than a few sizes to small). The slit on the skirt is supposed to be worn in the front, but I think it's more flattering worn sideways.

Vintage top, H&M skirt, Kate Spade flats

I'm imagining some kooky woman in 1972 wearing this vest with the lace pants and some wooden-sole platforms to go sit on a mustard-colored couch and smoke weed. You don't get that kind of personality off the rack at Express!


  1. You are so gorgeous! I love this entire outfit. The color of that skirt looks amazing on you!

    Mint & Mellow (Enter my giveaway!)

  2. this is such a great outfit! i love how you put everything together -- the color of that skirt is especially pretty. i hope you had a wonderful time at the formal!

  3. The dress has such a nice color and I love how you rearranged the way you wear your clothes :)Very original and creative.Your blog is very nice and I'd love it if you liked to follow each other.let me know:)


  4. Once again, you've made outfit magic that I'd steal off your rack in a minute. Speaking of Express - I'm extremely ashamed to say that was my favorite store in high school. I guess you could say I went through an extended Euro-trash phase, complete with underage club outings, heaps of RedBull, and exposed midriffs. I'm just glad you didn't know me back then.

  5. WOW now I am all for this turning around, inside out, upside down idea. I have sewed and shortened and all kinds of crazy stuff but this is new. love it.

  6. Wow, I just thought this was a regular shirt and skirt or just a dress. I would not have thought it was a vest worn backwards or the skirt was meant to be worn a different way. This is by far one of my favorite outfits! You look fantastic! =)

  7. You are so adorable and I love this outfit - particularly the vest. I can definitely see that weed-smoking, wooden platform wearing woman in your vest (and matching bell bottoms). :P

  8. Demure and risky all in one. Nicely done!
