Casually Clueless

So this look was definitely inspired by the movie Clueless, which is one of my favorite movies.  I loved Cher's red dress, thought Dionne's braids were gorgeous, and I even had a purple Jansport mini backpack that my aunt gave me one year. And of course, when I saw Rihanna wearing the same dress years later, it rejuvenated my love for the 90's all over again.  To give it my own twist, I decided to pair my dress with my favorite leopard-print Adidas for comfort and my bucket bag while I shopped in the uncomfortably crowded stores during tax-free weekend.

Southern Midi Style

So I decided to try wearing a silhouette I don't normally gravitate to-a midi skater dress.  It's a bit southern, 1950's housewife, and though I am from (and currently in) the South, it's just not my thing.  It's really just a longer version of a skater dress (which I sometimes like, depending on the length which, if too short, can fly up with the wind :(  However, I've been seeing them a lot more, especially on the First Lady and Jessica Alba, who both wear this style of dress often.
Will I try this style of dress again? I don't know, maybe, because I actually like the one I have on.  But I don't see it being a staple in my closet. However, that's the same thing I said about midi body con dresses and skirts, and now I have like four!
