24 February 2011


 Top: American Apparel, Underpinning: Honeydew, Bloomers: F21, Heels: Marni, Shoe Clips & Necklaces: Vintage, Clutch: Vintage Judith Leiber

I do realize that if I ever wanted to garner the attention of a man these shorts would do the exact opposite. It's a good thing I'm married or I would be screwed! Just jokes. But seriously, we all know certain trends and fashions aren't the most flattering or sexy to the opposite sex sometimes. I mean there is an entire blog devoted to repelling men!  But the question is...when you dress yourself to go somewhere, do you dress for you or do you dress for someone else? Food for thought. Clearly by the looks of my fabulous bloomers, I'm only dressing to impress good ole' ME.


Freya said...

Haha, good question, got me thinking!
Well, I like your shorts, they're great!
And I like your heels, so lovely!



Katelyn said...

i love that grey color of the shoes ant of the shorts. u look beautiful in it))

RosaLovesDC said...

First, great vintage accessories!
Second, I think you pose a very interesting question. I think that I dress for myself. My hubby totally does not get fashion at all and barely notices what I wear (except when I wear sequins). I like to feel good about myself specially since my job is not very glamorous and I have to basically wear tennis shoes and jeans to work.So when I plan my non-work related outfits I just wear what makes me feel good.

Lisa said...

ok woman i swear you are so delusional.. you could make bloomers look hot.

but seriously you look HOT!

i'm obsessed with your clutch and your uber cute shoe clips!

Closet Fashionista said...

Love those shorts!!!
I dress for me (usually), and I don't care what other people think :D

Kristen said...

what man's gonna give a hoot about your bloomies when they can see your knickers through your top?!

life's a counterbalance I say..

MerciBlahBlah said...

Those may be bloomers, but when I first saw them I thought it was a bubble skirt. No matter WHAT they are, they are KEYOOOOOOT. Loves that entire ensemble. Yup, you're a looker.


Unknown said...

Hopefully we all dress for ourselves and other women...most men just don't get it anyway.

I think you will do a fine job attracting the men in that see thru sexified shirt girlie!
You are so sassy in this outfit!

k said...

not a woman repeller though, i likes it :)

Unknown said...

Oh so cool! Love the combination of patterns and colors. You have such amazing style darling.

Love Iben

Leah said...

I recently bought that same shirt. I love how you styled it!

This looks fabulous on you. Always dress for yourself.

I do tend to steer clear of the more un-flattering styles because I have a bit of a booty, so puff on the lower half is a no no for me. But, you totally rock it.

Okay, you have just convinced me to buy a lace top - love this one on you!! :)

Chelsealauren said...

absolutely beautiful!

Unknown said...

Great question, I dress for myself! When you feel secure no matter your style, you'll be always sexy.

Balancing Lisa said...

Gush, gush, gush, swoon, gush!!!!!! lol I am dying!!! I love this look! The lace, the oversized clutch, the shoes, seriously LOVE this look!


StylePicks said...

Nice shorts!


Sabby V said...

I love this look and I think men would find it quite sexy too. Great shorts:)

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

Good grief lady. This look is hot with a capital H. I think you should do a post outlining your fitness routine! HAHA

Veronika Novotny said...

Hot mama, you look divine! And I am pretty sure that you would have no problem attracting a man in this outfit. I absolutely adore the attention to detail, each piece works beautifully with the other.

Agreed that fashion trends aren't always appealing to the opposite sex, but I think it depends on how fashion forward a guy is too. xx veronika

Jelena Zivanovic said...

u look precious,the lace blouse is beautiful!:))

this free bird said...

call me crazy but the chef would love these. and i mean love. they look fantastic on you!! anything with even kind of a bubble is a good thing. except if it's on a home loan.


Diana Mieczan said...

You look amazing. Love the outfit and you totally rock it! Happy Thursday, sweetie..Hugs

Jazzy E (Hivenn) said...

This outfit is amazing. So stunning. x hivennn

TheChambrayCountess said...

I think that outfit is hott! Love the shorts. And ManRepeller makes me laugh :)

The Bashful Rose said...

Great thinking post.....you look amazing!!!! You might be dressing for yourself but, they'll be looking......!! Love the vintage Judith ...

Johanna said...

I love the pumps and clutch. Perfect pairings.

HiFashion said...

You look remarkable!! The skirt is so gorgeous. And the top is so pretty. I always like to think that I dress for myself rather than for guys.

Laura said...

you seriously have the most amazing wardrobe!
love this look.. the shirt, the shorts... and that clutch is just adorable!!

dressing for yourself is the way to go.. much more fun that way! but with that said, I don't think this outfit qualifies as a man-repellent! :D


Unknown said...

Somehow I think you'd have no problem attracting men and that pretty lace top, but I know what you mean. I am often accused of dressing way to utlitarian/preppy during the day--it's just much easier for production. But at least I try and look pretty when I go out at night. Anyway, great outfit {as always}!

Cara said...

Love the lace top. I definitely dress for me. Whatever feels comfortable and feels right is what I wear.


Angelica Ng said...

HAHA! Love what you said about the shorts. But you mixed lace and bows...my faves! Such a sexy outfit...well, at least in the eyes of other fashion loving women.


Izzy said...

I love your bloomers. Plus thanks for the sweet comment, new post up :)

Bronzed Humanity said...

Great look! Love the lace!

Hot Pink Day

Laura said...

I love the shorts and shoe clips!

Freelance Shop-A-Holic said...

If I wore that top I'd look like a night walker on Vine! Or Lindsay Lohans mom...But you!!!
You look stunning! And so classic...
Love this!

Love at First Blush said...

Love the Manrepeller shorts, but I adore the ballsy sheer lace top with black bra look!

I secretly enjoy reading the Manrepeller blog too.

Polly said...

A little bit of both I think, but damn those bloomers look great, I think your hubby would be most excited and impressed!

Alleen said...

Lovely! Enjoy your weekend! ♥

Lila said...

Bloomers look fantastic on you. I love the mix of lace with the bold clutch too. If I was wearing that outfit I don't think the hubby would notice the bloomers, ha. But I think you should dress how you feel. One day I might wear jeans and the other a fitted suit and the next a hippie inspired dress and boots. We are complicated woman and we should be able to be all styles.

Karina Cifuentes said...

Kudos for rockin' lace and making it look so chic!

My Fashion Dolly said...

I loveee the shorts!!! Very cool outfit! Xoxo ♥

Rachel @ The Haute Notes said...

Annie said...

Andee Layne said...
