I jumped on the semi-tuck bandwagon late, but now I can't remember how I got dressed without it much of the time. This trick just opens a lot of possibilities--allowing me to wear tops that I wouldn't like completely tucked or completely untucked.
This outfit seems a departure for me, in that it involves fuchsia (not one of my usual colors), and the design on the tee strays into an arts-and-crafts look that I'm not too comfortable with. I think it's just this side of not-me, though, so I was fine with it today. Especially since I was teaching a couple of sewing classes, and the tee illustrated some relevant techniques. The outfit strikes me as a little preppy, a little boho, and not really anything of the MAD Glam (Moody, Arty, Draped Glam) that Angie used to describe my style recently. She was referring to a particular outfit, but it does seem to be a kind of aspirational descriptor for me.
The outfit, worn to teach sewing classes:
Fuchsia tee with reverse applique and print trim (an old Benetton tee, remade by me); navy chinos (Caslon); denim ballet flats with navy patent cap toe (AGL); cognac belt with floral cutout design (Fossil); navy and tan satchel (Dooney & Bourke); brushed silver twisted hoop earrings.
Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome! Thanks for looking.
