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!
LOL I love this post!!!ReplyDelete
You know, I was thinking of you when I made it. I asked the question: What Would Jodi Do?Delete
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.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
You are kickass in leather, boots and fishnets, Ally!ReplyDelete
You look bad to the bone and those boots are awesome!ReplyDelete
I like this approach! The other end of the continuum, which makes the dress look totally different.ReplyDelete
Loving it! Can I come and hang out with you now, Ms Bad Ass? xReplyDelete
I love it! You look so tough.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
I was thinking of you, Beth, when I decided to add beer to the post.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
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!
You badass babe ... love it.ReplyDelete
Now THAT's what I'm talkin' about!!! Why be shy? Let it rip :-) !!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I LOVE THIS OUTFIT. Daaayyyuuuum, girl -- Work it out.ReplyDelete
P.S. I need to steal this jacket. Me + Leather = Lurrrrveeee.
This is such a fun outfit!! OMG I love love love it, actually. The fishnets, the boots, the leather jacket. You nailed it!ReplyDelete

Haha these photos are great! I love those tights.ReplyDelete
I was smiling so big when I first saw what this post was. Then I was laughing reading about your parole officer. Then I was all "Oooooga Oooooga...Var-r-r-roooooooom!!! That's hot!" You are rockin' that bad girl.ReplyDelete
Love the lipstick stained cigarette in the ashtray prop.
bad ass is right! loving the fish nets.ReplyDelete
Oh isn'r Lynne the best!ReplyDelete
i adore your sense of humor my dear!
Love the ensemble! Geez I wish I had legs like yours, they are pretty amazing and fishnets kick it. I think you would take bad ass to a whole new level if you took these pics by your bike.ReplyDelete
:) you definitely look badass (and amazing!) and I love the way you restyled this sweet dress! Also, those sunglasses look great on you.ReplyDelete
bravo! I adore this look, lady! very-very Hot!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Are those, GASP, pink cigarettes? At first I thought you were smoking cake candles...
Oh I love it!! I like the dark eye-makeup too! lol, I never think to use props for my photos, I should do that!ReplyDelete
