Here I present an outfit that I totally ripped off from a picture I saw in the summer 2010 issue of i-D magazine. (The original was 100% D&G.) Usually copying an outfit from a magazine or another blog makes me feel like a bad person, like I'm really uninspired, but the mood of this outfit was just right. I was headed down to San Jose for one last time to see my parents before they left town and drop off my car (eek, I'm a real city girl now). Did I mention it's 85+ degrees in San Jose right now? Quite a change from the blustery weather we've been having up in San Francisco, so I used the opportunity to wear something summery, girly, and a little fashion forward. Looking back at the photos, I think I look a bit like Annie Oakley in this outfit. I just need a good wide brimmed hat and a shotgun and I'm there!
In the mood for some thoughts on fashion theory and semiology? Continue reading after the jump for some meaningful analysis of this here outfit.
