Current Obsessions – February
February is a shitty time in the realm of fashion… it’s way too cold to start wearing Spring clothing, and you are so, totally, completely and utterly sick of all of your winter stuff and wearing a huge ugly coat over everything. I’m already bonering over for a bunch of stuff spring… but essentially, I want to look like Ali Macgraw in the Getaway. Her and SMQ are HOT F*CKIN SHIT:
Anyways… on that note, here are my obsessions:
Last summer I bought a long cotton jersey dress – it’s awesome. SO comfortable, and is all clingy in all the right places. I really like the idea of wearing something that appears really conservative, but is actually super-sexy. On that note, I bought another long jersey dress from Flippa K at Robber last week. It’s sex-machine city.
High Waisted Flared Pants
As mentioned in the past, I have a “retro” body type… which basically means that I do not have the body of a 12 year old boy – it’s very hour-glass-y. This means that low-rise pants make me look fatter, because they camoflauge my small waist and focus on my hips. High waisted flared pants, on the other hand, make me look awesome. They highlight my waist and give me a sweet can.
There are a couple of trends that will always, always, always be ‘in for spring’. And every year, the ‘trends’ are re-released, as if it’s this fantastic new revelation: PASTELS for SPRING?!!!! FLORALS for SPRING!!??!?! NAUTICAL for SPRING??!! Dudes. it’s the same shit every year. Calm down. That being said, I am excited to get a nautical top and wear it with my high-waisted pants.
