Wild and Crazy

Earlier this week, I dressed up in a white top and white skirt.  I wondered what it would look like to be plain.  Ugh!  I couldn't believe how boring the outfit was.  It was so bad that I killed an outfit-post for the very first time.

I gravitate toward bright colors, bold shapes and extreme designs.  Almost at the end of clothing and into costume territory.  Which is okay to me.  I was prevented from wearing women's clothing most of my life so, to explore and have fun, I tend to go a little crazy.  Or, at times, a lot crazy.

Besides, I'm here to entertain you.  I mean, why else would strangers visit my blog?  I struggle to look halfway decent with limited assets.  My wilder outfits usually get the most crowd reaction.  Perhaps I function as an outlier whose experiments out at the edge give you people a chuckle.  And maybe ideas you can incorporate into normal life.

The amazing Megan sent me a purple shrug this week.  It appeals to me for its shape and color.  The shrug stimulated me today to create an outfit with lots of color and lots of pizzazz.  Yes, it ventures into costume territory but that's okay; nobody will see it except you.  :-)

  2. Fan-freaking-tastic! You're Super!Ally today. I knew you'd do something incredible with the shrug. I saw it and thought you'd surprise me with what you'd come up with - and you did!!

    I thought it would also be a nice piece to add to your layering collection for summer.

    I'm jealous of your incredible legs. You and your ability to wear knee high boots like that!! My skinny legs are awful for fitting into tall boots.

    1. Good response. It captures what I was aiming at, without really knowing what I was doing.

  15. As much as your bright outfits bring cheer to my day, I'd still like to see a more basic outfit! Maybe not the white on white (I've only seen brides and 80 year olds try to work that look, but if you can pull it off, go for it!) but sometimes you can let you shine!

  16. Definitely a Wonder Woman vibe going on lately (have you seen Misfits Vintage lately?). Except Wonder Woman is way too serious to be kicking up her heels like that. Purple is a good color for you!

  21. From one colour lover to another, this is a seriously fun and fabulous outfit, let me tell you. I just adore that you forwent posting about a plain white ensemble in favour of this vibrant one that's more in keeping with what makes you happy. That's an inspiring way to look at life in general, dear Ally!

  23. Those boots! I swear, that if we wore the same size shoes, I'd sneak over to NY and "borrow" them from you. And by "borrow" I mean steal. You knew that though, right?
