I Wish I Could Pull This Off...

Do you ever see an amazing outfit on someone and think, "I have to have that."  And then you go purchase said ensemble, and it is just wrong, wrong, wrong?!  It happens to the best of us.  I'd like to think of myself as a pretty daring person in my day-to-day life.  I love the thrill of taking a risk or trying something new.  But when it comes to making bold fashion statements, I usually let others make them, while I often stare in awe and think, "Damn, she looks good!"  Because I love fashion blogs as much as the next girl, I wanted to take a moment to pay homage to the looks I love but could never pull of myself.  First off- I love and I mean LOVE print mixing.  


Blogger B Soup is killing me with these metallic gold pants.  She flawlessly pulls them off with stripes and bold red lips.  There's something very Old Hollywood about her makeup and hair, too.   Amber rocked sequin leggings with a lips sweatshirt this Christmas, and if anyone can pull it off it is this girl:


 I like to think I have this badass alter-ego who does whatever the eff she wants (I don't).  But sometimes I just want to dress like it.  How flawlessly does Erin pull off the biker chic look?


And we can't talk fashion risks without including Karla!


Speaking of alter egos, I would also like to think I could've made an excellent hippie.  Just hand me a flower crown and some Quaaludes, and I'd be good to go.  But the loose, flowing frocks they donned are harder for me to pull off.  I love the bohemian flair to maxi skirts and long cardigans + floppy hats, though!



I've always had more of a gymnast's body than a model's.  My legs are muscular and short, which makes it hard to pull off the "over-the-knee" sock or boot.  But I loooove the look.



I have some serious fashion envy right now.  What about you?!

  2. Ditto sister! I could not pull off those metallic pants...ever. But it looks great on her! Love the skinny sequins sparkle pants...I could probably do that one. The high waisted black pants are lovely. You definitely have great style :)

  5. I have such fashion envy too, especially when it comes to cool trends that I can't fully pull off... denim on denim is one of them, over the knee boots, and same with the sequin skinnys!

  6. Wao...I had not heard of many of these girls....That lips sweater is sold out....I loved that....Yes I have fashion envy all the time! those gold pants are so good but don't think they would look good on me either. DOn't you wish you could virtually try on things right then and there! I hate ordering something and then having to send it back....which is what usually ends up happening!
