Extreme Fashion


Earlier today, Bonnie tweeted this picture and asked if anyone would wear this in real life.

Would you?  With carefully applied tape?

(I'd wear it to a fancy party, but I'm not a good example of female propriety...)

  1. I would not wear this even in the privacy of my own home. It's like duct tape covering the ta tas. Heather

  2. No way in hell! I agree with the above comment. :P

  3. I'd probably wear it to a convention or appropriate party. But the level of appropriate convention/party/rave wear is SIGNIFICANTLY different than what I'd wear in real life. Costuming has a lot more leeway than "normal life", so I tend to view things through a much different scope than the average dresser.

    I personally have no issues with extremely low-cut tops. I don't have overly large ta-tas so I feel like it's a little easier to get away with it.

    Now to actually comment on the outfit - that's basically two straps of fabric. I think it'd benefit from maybe a middle strap somewhere in there for a wee bit more coverage. And maybe some penciled in eyebrows.

  4. With a black, long-sleeved shirt under it, perhaps. The draped silver stuff looks intriguing but it's also a problem, it looks like it would seriously limit arm movement at least on one side!

  5. No way! My girls are way too big to fit under those teensie straps! Add pleated-front pants on me = yuck!

  6. Um, no. What little boobs I do have would be all over the place. Nope.

  7. If I looked like that, I would wear it everywhere. I would only have that in my wardrobe and burn the rest of my clothes. IF I looked like that. But I don't, so I would never ever wear that in public.

    xo,

  8. After a double mastectomy, perhaps.

  9. Ha to Ashley's comment (I wish that was my problem!) I honestly wouldn't wear this in public because I think less is more and this is displaying all the goods!

  10. Can I add some, no, a lot of tape in the middle to form a tube top?? Then maybe I'd leave the house in this.

  11. I'd wear my black tube across my bust, which would actually go really well with this outfit...love the arm cuffs xoxo

  12. I'd have to wear something under it to keep my boobs in check (lol), but yeah, I'd wear it.

  13. You'd never catch me in this! It's a bit too risky for my taste :)

  14. Yikes. No way baby. That poor model looks like she needs a cheeseburger and a nap. STAT.

  15. I think if you had a bandeau on under it might be okay...maybe...

  16. I would wear it if I ever became a stripper from outer space.

    Really, where in the real world could this type of outfit seem appropriate?

  17. This is too risky! Fun for a fashion show though.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would.
    With a crisp white button down underneath :)
    oh maybe i'd wear it if I were a stripper (id wear it on the job)

  19. No, but I do love the greys, & what looks of metal... monochromatic theme. Definitely needs a bit more cloth, or perhaps we could use that draped piece that they made a sash! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. nope, bit if i had an awesome body, who know what i'd wear? what are you wearing for halloween?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think it would be great if you starred in a sci-fi movie (something with the word "inter-galactic" in it) , but that's about it! I could never wear anything like that, boobies all over the place... And I have to say to Tracy that the lady in the pic looks good in it because she is as flat as an ironing-board - we don't want that, do we?? Maybe lady Gaga can save the day?

  22. No, I don't think I'd ever wear this. Its just not really my style, looking like Tank Girl and whatnot...

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm a maybe on wearing that dress IRL - let's just say I don't have the "support" I'd need.

    THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS YESTERDAY! You made my day!! I just read the story Miranda July wrote for the New Yorker, and as a product of the occasional shoplifting thrill and a young lady entering so-called-adulthood, I completely related to the story. MJ is one of my all-time favorite writers/artists/filmmakers. Are you familiar with any of her other work? What do you think?

  24. Elle, I'm still undecided about my Halloween costume. I tried out a fun cupcake costume on the blog a little while ago, but that's not my final choice.
