Outfit of the Week: No Rhyme, No Reason

(Image Above: Battalion Jacket in Black, Laser Light Show Dress, Chic Chevron Tights, Nefertiti Heels, Snake, Rattle, and Roll Bag, Compact Cassette Ring, and Calla Lovely Earrings)


It was sheer gluttony, pure indulgence, unabashed self ingratiation. Yes! Well, perhaps I exaggerate, but that’s beside the point. You see, when us writers choose an outfit of the week, we generally have an inspiration in mind. Sometimes, we try out a new style, something out of our comfort zone. Other times, we build an outfit around a theme, say, Western wear. For my outfit of the week, however, I decided to throw all that to the wind. Ah yes, there it goes now, little flecks of well-conceived thought borne away on the currents of my desires. Why? For my outfit of the week, I decided to do nothing more than seize the occasion as an opportunity to get decked out in some of my favorite ModCloth items. No seamlessly calculated plan. No invisible thread weaving the outfit together. Just a gleeful avidness for wearing clothes I admired. The result was a visual cacophony of color, pattern, and shape. The curved frogging of the Battalion Jacket in Black contrasted with the jagged, angular shapes on the Laser Light Show Dress. The delicate organic loops of the Calla Lovely Earrings played opposites with the bold geometric design on the Nefertiti Heels. Then, for good measure, a few accessories – the Compact Cassette Ring, the Chic Chevron Tights, and the Snake, Rattle, and Roll Bag. Some may say the whole is a bit overboard, but I can’t help but love it.

What do you think?

And, what’s your favorite ModCloth item?

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.

    Loooove this.
    And I can never decide what my favorite is. Too much goodness! Of course I am a naturally indecisive person.

    I dont know how you managed to put all of these together and pull it off.. but it looks amazing!!
    Sometimes people dont match but here its done with flair and somehow it works! Maybe its your confidence but you look like a fashion diva!! I LOVE the Nefertiti Heels!!
