Drag Brag

Dress, Gap. Pink belt, Eddie Bauer. Beige belt, Joe Fresh. Sandals, Nine West.

I'm writing this post from the greenhouse that is Montreal in the summer, pining for the cool breeze of Vancouver and if you haven't noticed, I doubled up on belts there. What? Who does that? People who blog their outfits, that's who. After a while, you start to worry that a dress does not an outfit make, so you try to outdo yourself with any kind of gimmick. What works on the blogosphere usually makes you look crazy on the street - kind of how stage makeup looks good from the audience, but up close, people assume you're a drag queen. You know what I'm talking about.

I do know what you're talking about! HAHA. I'm wearing a scarf with a belt over it today. I'm getting some crazy looks. My peeps in the blogger world would never give me crazy looks

Love the dress...and the double belt!

That dress is lovely on you! And...I've worn two belts before because yes, I felt like a dress did not an outfit make! A friend told me a few days later that he saw someone wearing three belts. I told him I was going to wear four next time. Heh.

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

lol.. that is so true!! I have worn something "okay" for the blog world but in real life, people looked at me weird. I like the double belt though not weird at all! Enjoy your summer

You're in MTL now?! Oh yippee I am planning a trip up there soon- we must have a blogger meet up! This dress is very reminiscent of fine china and I know what you mean about dresses- but they're so easy, comfy and chic!

I love the mix of mix of the two belts together!

Allison said...

I think you little drag queen metaphor should be posted in a blogger code or something somewhere; it's so true! I love the look regardless... so there!

Super cute dress and I love the double belt look! And I get it, most people who don't blog just might not get it. That's why I love the blogosphere!
