Fashion Vice: Brothel Chic
I think we all have “fashion vices”. But my biggest one is going out in what I like to dub “brothel chic”. What does this entail? Layers of short and tight, coupled with hole-laden tights (because for $14 at American Apparel, I’m getting me wear outta those babies!) Is this bad? I dunno, probably. I mean, if you’re going for subtlety, this look ain’t it…
The New Zealand based label Lonely Hearts’ Spring 2009 is trashed in a post-apocolypic bordello kinda way and I’m really feeling it.
So, I’m thinking it’s time for me to step it up! Like, we’re talking full-on “underwear on the outside” kinda trashy. I feel like Wonder Woman would approve. It’s like “Marc Jacobs Spring 08 meets Alice Dellal“– both of which are awesome. So, is this look awesomely bad? Maybe. But… not caring. If everyone is “goo goo for Lady Gaga“, who decidedly never wears pants, then why should I?
