Pretty. It's not really a word you can associate with me. I don't think anyone has ever used the word pretty to describe me and I've never striven to look, or dress, pretty. In fact, quite the opposite. Whenever I feel my outfit is bordering on too pretty, I need to toughen that shit up. 

If any of you have read the blog for a long time, you'll have heard me use the word "deprettify" and you'll also know how I go about deprettifying an outfit - with hardwear, namely some kind of harness. A feminine dress with a tough harness over the top has been my look since around 2009. It's a failsafe look for me. I'm always searching for tougher pieces to add to feminine dresses and tops. 

It's a super simple look but it really works for me. 


The Details

Sister Jane dress // Deandri brace harness // Lautem bag // Jeffrey Campbell shoes




These Jeffrey Campbell shoes, which I got for my birthday, haven't been off my feet since I got them. I bloody love the damn things. Endless western buckles for the win every time.
