While the weather has been brightening, the mornings are still guh-looomy! Not an ounce of blue in the sky until the afternoon.
Of course I came up with another June Gloom look to meet these rare days.
Showing off some leg like in my last Gloom post, I realize I naturally gravitate towards high/low ensembles. High hems and full coverage on top, that is.
Always a good balance I say.
Since I live so close to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising) and the Fashion District for that matter, the ladies in my building tend to look pretty cute and stylish. On Saturday nights when I go downstairs in pajamas and moccasins to walk my dog, I see this type of bodycon dress a lot in the elevator. It's all very L.A. yes, with a cut out leg opening, skin tight woven rayon/spandex and a simple, streamlined design (usually in a solid). It's edgy, modern and urban aaaand clubby!
Anyway, the dress you see I actually bought a year ago for a business trip that I never ended up photographing. Originally when bought, the dress was evening formal with layered draping. Certainly NOT for clubbing. That is until Sunday morning when I cut off all the draping to reveal this minimal, sexy number.
Repurposed and re-worn with some gritty boots and leather!
Excuse me, "leathah".
