in shorts for evening
Now if you are an avid reader of this blog you know I am no fan of Ms. Multipletude. Sure, I occasionally like what she wears but I mostly disdain her witchy ways.
Mrs. Rossdale, on the other hand, I worship. Not only is she a talented performer and mommy mogul but she is a bonafide style icon.
However, I thought both women were "misses" not "hits" in recent shorts for evening looks. It's not that their looks were flat out terrible - they just were mostly terrible ;)
Sure, Olivia's outfit was simple and monochromatic. But instead of understated chic it simply read: yawn.
Gwen's outfit was the exact opposite of boring- it had too much going on. Tights and the tartan and the belt and blazer and the print clutch AND the YSL platform tributes. Soooo many contrasting pieces, sooo many textures. Just too many mixed messages. Feels almost too high fashion to work off a runway - especially in laid back LA.
Think I managed to strike a better balance than both fashionistas with my first foray into shorts for evening. Threw together a fun and summery look with luxe accessories and cool but complimentary pieces. And doesn't my look feel more age appropriate - less like a costume - than the other two?
