I considered the dress/jeans combo today.

I found a dress at the thrift store made out of very thin cotton in a deep peach color. It's got a waist sash and the top half of the dress buttons down and it sorta has little cap sleeves and embroidery in the same peach color.

It's cute, but the material is so thin it's easy to see through. Also, I have big boobs, a big ribcage, and a flat butt, and dresses usually exaggerate my upside-down pear proportions esp when they're flimsy because the material just falls off my shoulder blades like it's jumping off a cliff or something. Dress suicide! I put my jeans and boots back on before I took off the dress and now I can't decide if it looks better that way- it does solve the see-through problem and adds a little weight to my lower body.

well, llamas if you were to wear that outfit to any of the shows I've been to recently you would be the most stylish girl in the room. Unless, of course, someone else decided to add a leopard print belt. Then you'd have to concede to being out-hipstered.

Your outfit sounds cute to me, very up-to-the-second without going overboard. It's a fine line, this fashion stuff

Can I also stick myself in the boots-and-skirt camp. my cowboy boots with a cord circle skirt, or my doc m's and another cord skirt (I have a cord problem). But I honestly think it depends on the person and the combination

ok... those croc-clog things. I saw a pair today. She was wearing them with a floaty dress halter-neck dress, but it looked tatty & you could see the back-strap of her bra (I hate that). And, I know today was the hottest day of the year so far but... why do I want to say "put it away ladies". Yes, the bra-straps that are wider than your shirt straps, the short-short-short skirts (that, when pulled taut did in fact only just cover her arse) and the tight shorts that give serious muffin-top. And the rest of it.

oh, and satin-sheen crop trousers that were a sort of demi-hammer-pant. Whyyyyyyyy?

and ap, you do indeed rock.

Three things:
First, AP, you rock. That is all.

Second, miss jane, your docs-type boots + wee skirt combo would seem to echo Liv Tyler in Empire Records, which is in my opinion quite a good thing. :-) Otherwise, I too need to see pictures of the skirt/boots, as I trust it's yummy when worn properly, but can't quite picture it!

Third, I must report myself. I bought a pair of black capri-length leggings and wore them in public. With a black v-neck tshirt, a plain denim miniskirt, and black ballet flats. I need to know what degree of smacking I must recieve for this.

Ya'll need to post some pics of the skirt/boots combo. I cannot imgine it being fetching in the least. There was one girl in a plaid dress with a thick, brown, woven, low-slung belt & slouchy suede boots that nearly blinded me with her tackiness.

In regards to the nasty girl, we were getting a little shade & they thought we were asleep & decided to talk shit. My friend is a *BIGBIGBIG* girl & I am a big girl, but comments were made in regard to the Hindenberg. That crossed the line. I walked over & said, "Oh, the humanity" & dispensed with the cola. Skinny bitch deserved it.

lucizoe so agree with you on the legging under dresses. There is a woman in my office who is usually quite nicely dressed in a hip super trendy kind of way. At least once a week she wears super skin tight jeans with a dress.

She somewhat pulls it off with her figure and her air but really can't imagine most people doing it well.

bklynhermit I love boots with 50's style skirts! In fact I might do just that tomorrow.

As for ass kicking boots - mine are black catapillar "engineer" boots which I got half price on ebay. They should have been £90. Needless to say I was chuffed :-)

uh, dude, you's all better post some pictures cause i am having an impossible time imagining that as cute. i can see tall, heeled, calf-hugging boots and a dress or skirt, i mean, that's sexy but... cowboy boots or slouchy suede. ugh. i'm keeping an open mind though so make with the pics chicas... reform me already.
once again i am debating going out in the jammies. today it's hot pink terry fleece pants with a navy t, hot pink band logo from i don't know when. huge fuzzy black sweater and black clogs. hair a mess too, of course. sigh, why can't i care more?

i wear cowboy boots with dresses all the time. it's actually a really good combination for this time of year because the boots keep me a bit warmer if things get breezy. you have to go either really ironic or really casual and country. in fact, i wouldn't pair cowboy boots and an actual mini, more like a kneeish length a-line or dirndl. my favorite pairing right now is my serious Bad Guy In Western Movie black boots with those retro 50's ish skirts and dresses.

i also rock my slouchy suede boots with tights and skirts in the winter.

so bah. i'm sure i will see pictures in 15 years and think 'oy, what was i thinking?' but at least there are no gauchos involved...

oh, AP, you are such my heroine

I have to express my utter distaste for this whole leggings-under-dresses thing that is happening. Add huge belts and boots with minidresses and my head is about to a-splode...

Still waitin' on getting my workspace in our teeeeeeny tiny apartment so's I can make my own simple stuff. Lightly flared skirts, little jackets, flattering, full-length pants...think 1930s Dorothy Parker meets English tweeds meets GAP circa 1998

Once again I creep out of my lurking hole to say "hey! I do that and I'm not a CoF!"

I regularly wear boots and mini dresses/skirts. Mine are probably even worse being the shit kicker or dr marten style, but I think I look cute.... in a kind of early 90's trying to be a riot grrrl type way....

Anyway...

Kudos to AP for getting that girl!

Aural, I think I first saw that mini-dress/boots combo on an early episode of The L Word... and even then I thought it was a bit dodgy (as I recall, the dress was royal blue and the boots were black, which was also problematic).

For me, this layering of big-ass belt over short skirt/long tunic over leggings ending at the ankle thing (currently everywhere)was always a CoF. I know it's trendy but it flatters NOBODY.

Oh, the CoF over the weekend. I went to a music festival & the *most* HORRIFYING trend was boots with a mini-dress. Mostly slouchy suede ones, but a few cowboys, too. To rectify, I poured a Coke on a nasty girl that said nasty things about myself & some people I was hanging with. She was wearing a blousy, linen, cream dress that barely covered her non-existant ass & chocolate suede slouchy boots. Doused the dress. I made sure to get the boots, too & hightailed it. I didn't tell my friends because they were boys & wouldn't understand.

I am ashamed to admit it, but I own two pairs of Fluevog boots that were about $300 apiece. What's really disgusting is that I flew to SF specifically to buy said shoes. I had no other reason to be there other than to buy the shoes. Yeah, I did some touristy shit, but I went to buy the shoes. Chicks always stop me to grill me about them when I wear them. They're teh hawt.

*flounces back in*

The pricetag IS ridiculously expensive...I have one pair that cost $130, but it was worth it. I have huge wide hobbit feet with high arches and various other issues and they are the only shoes I can wear consistently without problems. I've tried the podiatrist/orthotics route and like most of my doctors, my podiatrist didn't believe that I was having any pain...

I love shoes but I can't have anything cute. My heart bleeds.

maimy - the two pairs I bought ran me approx. $300.00 total. Each pair was between 125.00 and 135.00 + tax and all. I got them a few years ago at a mall in an upscale part of Nashville, TN in a store that specialised in specialty sandals and import shoes. I thought the price was a bit ridiculous myself, I figured it had to do with the area of town I was in, but I wanted them so...... they were still in great shape when the "rotten landlord" threw them out. What a bastard..... Oh well.

Oh yeah, they're freakin' expensive. The two pairs I've owned were licensed knock-offs (made by some sub-comapny of Birkenstocks, but they're basically the same thing) and they were still $40. With the proper care, though, they will last a long time and they're comfy once you get used to them.
