Really cool bike, plus a sweet jacket

Street Fashion #2 (GALLERY STROLL!)

I love the hats. And the vest.
If you enlarge it, you should be able to see the neato stripes on her dress.
I think this one is my favorite. All the combinations are so striking.
This is one of the editors of SLC Pomp! Doesn't she look fitting for the job?
Hm, maybe I should start wearing shawls more often...
Don't they all look great? I love the creative combinations going on here.

The Modesty T-shirt

If you live in the western USA, especially Utah, chances are that you have seen (or own) one of these:

Now, these modesty shirts are great if you want to me modest, they just don't look that stylish when layered under a cute little spaghetti strap top. Really, they don't. Actually, they scream, "Hey my mom made me wear this underneath, but since it's white you can just pretend it's not there!"

For some reason, that just doesn't sound appealing. So, I have come up with a list of ways you can be modest, look good, and make a better statement out of it
Things to wear that aren't Modesty Tees:
  • Colored turtleneck
  • Top with puffy sleeves

  • Bolero sweater

  • Knit cardigan
  • Modesty Tee with colored, thick-strapped tank-top

  • Shrug

  • Button up blouse: plaid, pinstriped, or plain (alliterations attack!)

  • Textured blouse

  • Graphic tee
  • Tee in a contrasting color

  • Polo shirt

  • 3/4 sleeve henley

  • Anything with interesting sleeves/collar

Wow! I just thought 13 things you can layer with instead of a grubby old white capsleeved tee!
Remember kids, you CAN be modest, fashionable, and make a statment.

I know, it's a crappy image taken by a phone.

But, it is also a genius dress!

Also, take a look at the textured gray tights with the orange shoes. Lovely!

How NOT to wear a dress!

Any dress in which you can see the fat rolls of an already skinny girl is the wrong dress to buy. Those poor maodels look tortured! Actually, they look like they have been weeping from the embarrassment of wearing "dresses" like that.
American Apparel has made some bad impressions on me.

5. I can carry off more than I thought I could
6. It's my right to have my own style
7. Different style elements can be mixed
8. I can find my inspiration in many places
9. Getting dressed is fun
10. I will support others in thier quest for fashion
