Fade to Black

This outfit has lots of dots:

But, in my opinion, that’s not the interesting part; the interesting part is how it fades to black:

From top to bottom, I’m wearing navy, darker navy and finally black.  And the dots go from big dots, to smaller dots to no dots.  Did I just blow your mind?  I know.  Take a minute to recover and we’ll talk further.

You probably noticed that I don’t wear a lot of conceptual clothing.  I think about what to wear, but I don’t think about it.  But, today I did and I have to tell you that it thrills my nerdy little soul to no end to be wearing a concept as well as an outfit.  I’m not saying I’m going to do it all the time, but I think maybe I’ll try it again some time.  It really was a fun experiment.

Happy Tuesday, All!



  1. Great combination. So causual and chic!

  2. I admire your ability to have a concept outfit without going overboard. I tend to get waaaaaay inside my head and then I have elaborate concepts that don't make sense to anyone but me.


  3. I like your concept! I also like polka-dots, so I think you're definitely onto something awesome here.

  4. Conceptual outfits are pretty great, and this one especially so. You look almost as good as the Doppler Effect!

  5. You, without fail, make me giggle at least once a post. And is that the sweater from Old Navy? Because I'm pretty jealous. I think it's adorable and wish I had made the drive into Tacoma to buy one.

  6. Concepts are fun to play with. This one works nicely. I like viewing fashion as a creative playground.

  7. I love the idea of concept fashion. I'd love to do a concept week or something like that.

  8. nice different size polka dots. gracey, i like the black fade.

  9. 1. You look so lovely in your outfit! I love the big/little polka dot combo; what a clever use of patterns!

    2. We are honored to have made your whole week with our David Beckham post! It always feels good to make someone happy. Hope the rest of your week goes well!
