did anyone else used to wear jeans with ripped butts and boxers underneath them when you were younger? or was it just me? anyone? anyone? what a look that was! my first thought when seeing this picture is that i would have to borrow chris' underwear to actually copy this outfit. it's an interesting fashion choice...but somehow gwen makes it work. maybe it's because she is impeccably stylish and looks good in pretty much anything. so i decided to not be quite so literal with the inspiration. i took the general idea of the outfit, and here's what i came up with...
after today's challenge, i am now getting rid of my boyfriend jeans, a pair of olive cargo boyfriend pants and any button-down plaid shirts i own (one). boyfriend jeans were made for models with five foot long legs, not short and muscular legs and wide hips. and button-down shirts were made for small-chested women. i don't need any little between-the-button peep shows that happen when i wear button downs. just a few thoughts. while my outfit looks nothing like gwen's, i was happy to be inspired by her. sometimes it takes a challenge like this, and three photo shoots to realize that you shouldn't be wearing some of your clothes. plus side: more room in the closet!
