    I definitely don't have an MC perspective, but I don't think that being MC is necessarily a good thing either - however I can tell you what is jumping out at me is:
    -summer'y jacket
    -incongruence between elegant silk square and rougher brown country boots
    -brown country boots kind of speak of a different season and place than the jacket
    -You've got all the colors of the outfit in the square, good i guess, but it's very off. probably because of point #2, the elegance of the silk square and the generally casual nature of the whole outfit.

    I think with say, white shoes or something, minus the belt, maybe a less dark square in a matte fiber like linen or cotton - you'd be set for July. :eek: For a September 27th though, you can wear the country boots, but build up a heartier, slightly more rugged outfit above them, ie tweeds and wool flannels, etc.

    Thanks, drew. Only thing is that it's upper-70's here and bright sun; not exactly tromping through the gorse and driving rains just yet. I'll try white shoes (found some 10$ bucks a few weeks ago for the hell of it); I think you're right about the boots being the biggest problem. also ps was too matchy, should have been white linen

    For you Boxing fans, saw probably the only boxer I have interest in seeing at the moment at Atlantis, and not because he is a fellow compatriot

    Gamboa, talking to the guy made me even more of a fan, very nice dude

    thanks boys!


    what happened? Lol … i broke up with my boyfriend, basically made him move out the apt we shared, took my car back and started driving the 2 miles each way to work instead of walking (before the ex was taking my car daily to work) … soooo now i wear whatever i want because i don't have to deal with the hike every day (and him haha). these boots, i found on ebay, couldn't resist!


    and then for all of you (Ivwri, Synthese, snake…) going back and forth on the leg opening and the black-ness or non-blackness of my boots and the fact that it's not Rick on Rick on Rick …

    leg opening, i really liked with the tights, i like the fact that you can visibly see that my leg is smaller than it and doesn't look like i've got major cankles or really fat calves or something awkward that i'm sure would be mocked if they fit poorly haha. i also quite enjoy that they're not black, thanks :D and then, I own one Rick tank, those boots (now) and a DrkShdw sweatshirt. Otherwise my closet is such a varied mix, that I'm looking forward to bringing more of an edgy clean line to the rest of my wardrobe. especially because i live literally 2 blocks from the beach, the all Rick look would just be.. awkward. (Side note, he did make these beautifully ethereal dresses in one of his more recent collections, those I could defffffinitely wear).

    Cropped pants? No way … tried those last night, the ones I have (cute IRL) looked terrible with the Rick boots.. wrong style altogether I think. Denim and other non-legging pants, I'll have to play around with… not all of my pants I think are skinny enough at the leg opening that they'd work perfectly with these. Although, I do have a grungy dress + sweater in mind that I'll prob wear and post soon.

    Thanks for all the feedback!
