The Clothing Collective: Garden party!

It's summertime which means you should be outdoors as often as you can, particularly for such events that combine drinking and eating--and that's why our latest outfit for the Clothing Collective is something perfect to wear for a garden party.

I guess you could just call it an outfit for an outdoor party, but that doesn't have the same ring, does it?

First things first, I chose this floral dress because if you think I am going to get upstaged by real flowers at my own garden party, you thought WRONG.

Dress from Bettie Page Clothing. Wedges from Nine West.
Plus the dress blows nicely in the wind and is long enough not to expose your lacy thong/granny panties/lack of underwear if a gust blows through your party.

I decided to go straight retro with the t-strap wedges and a necklace that used to belong to my grandmother.

Beyond the retro look though, the wedges were also a better option for grass and dirt than heels, because a) I hate when you get dirt caked around your heel and b) like I want to be teetering on heels when I am concentrating on not dropping my plastic cup full of boxed white wine and and my plate full of potato salad and BBQ.

Obviously this is how you should stand if you don't want anyone to approach you:

My grandmother's necklace.
(If you freckle, it's only downhill from here this season. AM I RIGHT?)

I wore my hair wavy because nothing says "effortless, outdoor chic" like spending a fucking hour curling it so it can fall out in the humidity of Kansas and become a mass of blah by the end of the night. 

But without further ado, Crystal's look can be found here!


Next up, summer fun!
