Many of you might be thinking “What the hell?” right now, while others are like “I WANT THAT SHIRT”, it all really depends if you’re a nonconformist like myself or a more conservative person. After all, I am wearing Daniel’s shirt all twisted around me with parts of my upper body exposed and you know what? I completely adore it! It was one of those moments when you put on boyfriend jeans, then you put on a men’s shirt and all you can think of is “This has been done so many times, really not feeling it”. What comes next is a rush of flashbacks from Margiela and Celine, some google search that doesn’t seem to be able to deal with Doina’s random key words “knotted shirt women’s trend 2015” “off one shoulder women’s shirt 2015” “ways to wear men’s shirt for women 2015″… No judging. So left with nothing but inspiration and broken memories, I start playing with the shirt.
My first thought: “Why isn’t Daniel bigger”- this kinda DIY-ing really needs an extra large shirt if you don’t want your breasts falling out or your neck being strangled.
Second thought: “Oh no no no please don’t rip, you’re Daniel’s!!”- try to take it slowly, otherwise you can end up with buttons jumping out and little cracks in the tailoring. Oops.
Third thought: “This is useless, I can’t make it work”- don’t give up, it will look really weird half way there, but that means you should keep changing it and re-knotting.
Fourth thought: “Mmm, actually, this is working and it looks quite awesome”- victory is tastier than salted caramel.
Don’t be afraid to bring some creativity into your style, standing out isn’t bad… And I was reassured by that once so many magazines featured my outfit after I attended an event in London that evening.
Candy floss kisses to you all,
Then we headed to the UNo cafe in Pimlico to enjoy a lovely glass of granola and some fresh smoothies. (forgive my nails, i seem to never be capable of removing the shellac on my own!)
And here is another way I wore the shirt later that night to attend an evening event.
