Badass




My last outfit-post featured a dress done up girly.  That was the only approach that occurred to me.  In the comments, however, Lynne and others suggested taking a different direction -- using the dress to create a badass outfit.  With leather jacket, boots, etc.

The idea intrigued me, so I asked my parole officer Elaine what she thought.  Elaine encouraged me to explore this attitude.  She reminded me that, during my stretch in The Big House, I was quite butch.

Here's a life-lesson -- when making a withdrawal from a bank, use their authorized withdrawal form and not a handwritten note...













P.S., I don't smoke cigarettes and used them solely as a prop.  I do, however, drink beer and wear leather jackets!

    1. You know, I was thinking of you when I made it. I asked the question: What Would Jodi Do?

  2. Woowoo! Wowza! I think the idea was spot on. You look fabulous. Still feminine, but totally badass. A lady who kicks butt and takes names.

  3. I picture you singing something from Grease as Rizzo. I ADORE this awesome amalgamation of your interests- chic style, a little bit of badass, a feminine take on the motorcycle jacket. Amazing!

  6. I like this approach! The other end of the continuum, which makes the dress look totally different.

  10. YES! Love this! The fishnets rock! And I want a badass leather jacket in the worst way! And you know I love beer, so I love that you are holding a bottle of beer. This post made my day, you're a rockstar Ally!

  11. Da-YUM, Gurl, you look HOT. And like a Good Time :) Love this take on the bandage dress. The jacket gives you va-va-voom curves, and the black fishnets and high heel boots make your long legs look even longer.

    I should have added the first time you posted this outfit, that I'd like to see this dress styled with other kinds of accessories, too, because it is versatile. I can see it with a cool peplum jacket or shooties or long chains. I wasn't trying to shove you in a Badass box :) But I knew from your past motorcycle pics that you'd rock it. Now we just need your Pin-Up pic, modeling this dress with your bike!

  24. Love the white scarf. I like it both ways. The dress itself is kinda Herve Leger meets VPL. See? Country girl DOES know her designers. Great find.

    Are those, GASP, pink cigarettes? At first I thought you were smoking cake candles...
