I seriously haven't been this inspired to dress in awhile. It's just, such an Arabelle Jacket. It is Me.
You're probably like, "...so where is the jacket?" I thought I'd show you the starting point of the outfit first. Ignoring the awkward school-photo-esque pose (it was intentional, I SWEAR). This is basically a maxi skirt dress thing I got the other day at Goodwill for $1, for layering and simple summer outfits. I'm wearing it with a Road Warrior Harness by Angie. Eventually I'll buy a harness from Zana, I've been trying to decide which one for like, a year, because I am absolutely pathetic with fashion purchases and it takes me literally like 8 months to decide whether to buy something or not if it's more than $5. You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.
INSERT DRUMROLL HERE. I DON'T WANT TO EMBED ACTUAL DRUMROLL, SO IMAGINE IT OKAY? fake drumroll: sdjasdkadhkedwdsakdjasdadakjdahdkjadkajsdhakjdhakdakdakdakdakdjaa...
So this is ~the~ jacket. It's mostly unbuttoned because I wanted to show the harness still, and also the faked dress texture I did using hair elastics. I've done this trick a bunch of times before. If you're a longtime reader, you'll remember my sweater-skirt, my tablecloth skirt.... it's all the same principle really. Also, this was the first picture I took and then decided to put lipstick on so that's why it's different than the rest of the photos.
This is such a classic CDG jacket, and it's from one of my favorite periods of Rei's work. It's entirely adjustable, because it has four arm holes -- you can wear it upside down, half upside down, etc. This is 'right side up'.
This is like, a really, really horrible homage to my favorite Nick Knight / CDG editorial, it was in Another Magazine Fall 2004. It's on the fuckyeahcdg tumblr I help run. I may have failed, but it was in my head so it counts! This is what the jacket looks like 'upside down', and with the sleeves tied up in front. I think in the future I'll tie it into a ball. You can also wear it with the sleeves hanging down, obvs.
And just to change it up, this is how the jacket looks partially buttoned over a CDG blouse and some sequined harem pants. Ugh you guys it's so good I could cry.
The glaring omission to this post? My CDG dress, obvs. But that is for another day -- a special occasion, baha. Thank you so much Meagan. And thank you for reading.
