XL safety pinned layering



I guess the whole "lingerie as outerwear" trend is way too last year but I've always thought Rumi Neely pioneered the whole look quite nicely eons ago... Needless to say that I've found lacey slips and satin-y numbers (like the one pictured here) to be good for layering when a tunic-dress doesn't quite hit the right length. This tunic is my XL find from a Chelsea Salvation Army 3 years ago for <$10 (I love thrifting yes pleaseee)! It's got the perfect flappy laser-cut sleeves and hem and a fun print, as well as an accordion pleat running through the whole thing making it ... expandable.



 
Safety pinned it so it fit a little better, layered over slip, and voila, simple look :) Knee socks under with my trusty faux-suede thigh highs!

P.S. Sorry for the same shot / angle / whatever over and over again! Had to use the trusty old self timer and god it took forever to edit ... #DSLRselfieproblems
