“No dad, this is not a garbage bag, and I am not taking it outside. In fact, I am taking you and my camera outside so we can shoot this amazing outfit.”
Although my dad may have to learn a thing or two about fashion (questions like “Is that a garbage bag? Is your jeans damaged, and do you need a new one?” keep popping up), he does know how to photograph after some of my instructions, so you shouldn’t be surprised that my dad has taken these photos – and several more on my blog. Normally, my friend Mo plays photographer, but since he was too busy, I went for plan B and I am happy to show you these pictures.
The garbage bag joke is actually kinda ironic since the past few weeks I have been teaching on a creative girl school about fashion trends and how to make skirts and dresses out of garbage bags and other recycled stuff. This is a very fun project that really opened my eyes about garbage bags. I was so surprised about the creative stuff these kids were doing with it.
So here’s another look I have been wearing to fashion week, featuring a PVC skirt, that I do not want to be confused with a garbage bag a n y m o r e. Okay? Cause this skirt is too cool. I have been looking for one for over a year now. I was actually looking for a peachy one, but in the end I thought that black would match to other items better. I might still wanna look for a peachy one, though. Here, I chose to match the skirt to a plain white T-shirt, lace up heels and a military green bomber jacket, which is also too cool for school, right?
Let me know what you think of this look, in particular the skirt. Would you wear it or tear it?
