I Wear Prada (Sort of. Not really. Not even a little. Sometimes I wear Payless.)

On Sunday, I made one small leap for me, one giant leap for fashion-kind.

Blog, I have discovered, yes, discovered, a whole new layering approach that will revolutionize how awesome I look when I go out.

First, I took a halter dress.  It can be patterned. It just so happened that I had the perfect black and white halter dress.  For those of you that are not in-the-know, a halter dress is a dress that has straps that go around the neck, instead of over each shoulder.

Then, blog, this is where it gets good, I put a single colored, snug, assymetrical shirt on TOP of the halter dress.  So, over one shoulder, you could see the design of the halter dress and a shoulder.  Over the other shoulder you just see the shirt.

This fashion discovery is brilliant for many reasons.  First, most days it is too chilly for just a halter dress. It usually has to be over 80 degress for a halter dress to accommodate the halter-dress-wearer’s warmth needs.  But a shirt + halter accomodates 72-90 degree weather comfort. Second, it’s almost like an entirely new outfit!  You’ve essentially turned your dress into a skirt and created a whole new top for the pattern.  Third, depending on the halter dress, you can dress it down or up with this slick approach.  So let’s say you’re going on a date and you’re not sure if it’s casual or classy, you can simply remove or leave the assymetrical shirt as you feel appropriate.

I was so excited about my discovery that I wore the ensemble Sunday, and I plan to wear the same outfit again Thursday night and Friday night!  Disgusting? Not if you’ve seen how awesome the combination looks!

You’re welcome, society. You’re welcome.
