I live in LA. Lately I’ve been hanging out in the downtown/silverlake scene, and I think my attire has become a bit too American Apparel/hipster. Just recently I started dating a guy who has a lot of in’s in Hollywood. When I went out last week in Hollywood, I swear I forgot how to be pretty and glamorous. I am stuck in a hipster/artsy rut, which as you know doesn’t quite cut the mustard in Hollywood. HELP!!!
So in order to fix my dilemma I went shopping. I bought this sweater:
However when I tried it on in the store–which had bad lighting, I was convinced I could wear it as a dress. Now that I have taken it home, I have come to find out it is way too see through to be worn as just a dress. So what do I do??
Thanks for your help!
Admitting you have a problem is the first step, American Apparel is great and all but here in L.A. it’s like a full blown hipster epidemic …
The top you bought it pretty awesome, I love LaRok! Let’s break it down using the options you gave me.
Depending on how long this shirt actually is on you — yes you could wear it a dress. A nice vintage cream colored slip that peeks out the bottom would be really fun.
Make sure the black tights are opaque, just grab a pair for $5 at Target. I can’t really picture ankle boots with this outfit but if those are the shoes that makes your legs look the best then go for it. I would either wear knee high black boots or a sexy pair of Mary Janes (5 inch heels) … if I were feeling really crazy I would wear these with the black tights.
No. I am not down with leather pants right now and even if I were I think they would be too harsh for this top.
You can wear it with jeans AFTER you wear it out and look fabulous 🙂
