A few days ago I was on the Extra set (read: on a stage in the middle of Century City mall) sporting a neoprene midi skirt with the lovely Renee Bargh, telling her, and TV viewers everywhere, all about panty hose! Now before your eyes roll back in your head and you scream at the heavens “Why did I click on this blog?!?!”, let me assure you, the models were cute, the outfits were too, and the tights were definitely worthy. And, even better than all that, my outfit was stellar! The lovely people at DKNY hooked me up and I thought it only fair to share some of the goodness with you. Navy blue laser cut crop top (notice I am not showing my belly… did I mention I have two kids?) and matching A-line midi skirt = LOVE. As for the pictures, well, my regular photographer, aka my sister Erica Luttrell, has a life, so we’ll have to make do with some dressing room selfies save for the first pic mercifully taken by the PR queen herself, Ali Lasky of Shadow PR. Enjoy!
With love, Amanda
Is that title too provocative? I’m wearing a Nasty Gal dress, and I’m a girl who likes their stuff, so I guess that makes me a Nasty girl? And the wall is pink. All sounds pretty straight forward to me! Let’s move on. This dress lacks hanger appeal. Or, otherwise put, when you see it hanging, it looks like nothing you’d ever want to wear, unless you were feeling particularly bad about yourself, were following through on a dare, or you’re Tilda Swinton. Or, if you’re like me, you love a misfit and a little risk-taking. I looked past the dress’s frumpy exterior and saw the neoprene-y potential that lay beneath. Plus, there’s almost nothing that a belt can’t fix. I tried it on and fell in love with the bell skirt, streamlined seams, and structured body. When I wear this dress I feel at once terrifically “fashion” and decidedly smarter. I won’t begin to try and parse out why. I’ll leave the psycho-analytics to my beleaguered therapist and just rejoice in another stellar addition to my sartorial family.
