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.
