Roominess of One's Own

This is possibly the most unflattering (in the traditional sense) knit top + elastic waisted skirt + sock + shoe combo for the body of a young woman, but that is also one of the top reasons why I enjoyed wearing it so much.

The number one reason I enjoy this look is the leopard sock combined with leopards on the skirt.

Umit B. Loved

Two years ago my fashion and life partner brought Mr. Umit Benan to my attention with this post. A few weeks ago, I came across this Dazed Digital presentation, complete with a video; the photos copped, collaged and pasted below; and some vaguely explanatory text.

The short story is as follows: this is a menswear collection for spring 2013. It is named "I Once Loved a Woman Who Loves Menswear..." Well, that makes two of us. (Self-love is essential!) The runway presentation began with men rising from bed. The idea is that they are in love with a woman who loves menswear. So, when they get up, they put on her clothes. And they are perfect for him. They are also perfect for me. 

I wanna explore these colors, work these shapes, and acquire some wide-vertical-stripe pants. But mostly, I want those vertical stripe pants.
