Distressed Dark Floral Grunge

Monday, December 19, 2016 Sam 2 Comments

I love this wonky mirrored dark floral print. When I first saw it, it reminded me of the heavy damask upholstery used on furniture in the 1970's. How could I not buy it immediately?

Also, shout out to all my short torso babes - we can wear shirts as dresses. I squealed with joy when I realized this was long enough to wear with tights instead of leggings. I knew I wanted to wear my favorite thick, distressed tights and to top it off with a velvet over shirt. Since I'd already committed to an array of tacky fabrics, I figured why not carry the theme throughout with some velvet patterned creepers.

I figure I'm the short, curvy, blonde version of this so-bad-it's-good Sci-Fi b-movie plot: a 1970's living room sofa time travels to the 1990's and gets discarded in an alleyway until a group of hipsters rescue it in the late 2000's, re-purpose it, and then put it in their own hipster-y living room. Or something like that. You get the gist.
