Street Style Inspiration of the Day
Is this just not the coolest in-action street style photo? It makes me want to get dressed up. And not like going out to dinner dressed up. It takes those 9-to-5 work dressing rules and kind of turns them on their head. First there's the skirts. Instead of the conventional pencil skirt, which frankly I find impossible to move in, one's got flounce with a ruffle hem and the other comes in an animal skin. So there. Those sensible pumps? They've got dominatrix ankle straps to get rid of any prudish notions and the handbag has cool metal hardware to make that basic black look anything but. It takes everything we think we need to wear to work and kind of tweaks it to make it interesting, new and young. This picture seems to capture it all and is a great reminder of how to keep it fresh when everything around you seems so boring and old.
