That is the question I asked a couple of my good friends who were discussing clothes one day. What is D&G? They paused and looked at me. I'm guessing they were waiting for me to say "just kidding!". I didn't. Then they laughed their asses off. And that defines my fashion sense. Or lack there of...
While reading my BlogHer attendee news email, I learned that Tide and Tim Gunn want to know - what are you wearing to BlogHer '09? When I read this, I thought to myself, "Crap, what am I wearing to BlogHer?" I have absolutely no idea. So I thought I'd write a post about it, for the chance to win a private style consultation with Tim Gunn - who is apparently a big deal in the fashion world.
Here's Tim's list of essential items for BlogHer:
- Basic black dress. Ok, gotta get one of those.
- Classic white shirt. I think I've got one of those.
- Jeans. Definitely have those.
- Skirt. Got a couple of those too.
- Day Dress. Nope. Can someone tell me where to find a day dress?
- Jacket. Umm...not sure. Can you tell why I need this style consultation?!
What I do have is shoes. I adore shoes. Shoes are the one thing that I feel like I know how to buy. Although even that is questionable. Case in point... I just purchased three pairs of shoes from Target for $14 each. Come on - are people really going to be able to tell that they came from Target? I mean people other most woman and every gay man? Ok, so everyone will know, but won't they just think - "hey, cute shoes, and what a smart woman for getting them at a bargain!" Maybe not.
Here are some shoes (not from Target) that I think women and gay men can appreciate.
So, I'll be wearing these shoes at BlogHer. I'll most likely be naked other that that, seeing as how I have no clothes to go with them, but at least I'll be wearing cute shoes!
p.s. For my fellow non-fashionista friends... D&G stands for Dolce and Gabbana. Apparently.
