OK, I was told my last exercise in this challenge wasn't really dated, just classic. http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....-challenge
This made me realize there is a difference between what is dated and what I'm just tired of. I think fitted tops was a look I wore for a good 10 years, so for me it feels old even though it's not dated.
Before Pictures 1/2 -- Da Nang (I was crazy about this brand) hi-lo midi skirt from 2003. I wore this to death until 2006. The back patch and military hardware (#2) are dated I think.
After Pictures 3/4/5 -- I am wearing a black cami and black sandals to create a column effect. The loose knit sweater has a hi-low hem, hiding the patch, and is on-trend. Since it was chilly that day I wore my BB Dakota unlined jacket over the outfit. I was told by one acquaintance that I looked like a glamor girl in this outfit. Which isn't what I was going for, but I guess compared to my environmental norm (jeans and sweatshirts), I am.
Thanks for looking!
