Who let the dogs out?

Arty Slick – Day 26

I’m so sorry to have to start a post with a tired, cliched song, but I couldn’t resist.  I found the best PMS t-shirt ever at Forever 21 and wanted to share it —

It’s the polar opposite of Gamine, isn’t it?  No worries about creepy men hitting on me at Costco with this shirt on.  I also had two teenage girls tell me how much they loved my shirt.  And really, in trendy fashion, is there no higher compliment than that of a teenage girl?  Here’s the whole outfit —

I got the pointy half boots at a thrift shop for eight dollars and the jacket and scary dog t-shirt at Forever 21 at their usual dirt cheap-clothes-made-in-a-sweatshop prices — together they both cost me about twenty dollars.

The only thing is… I’m not sure what style I’m wearing!  Arty Slick?  Rock and Roll?  Rabid Dog Lover?  Any guesses?

    It’s much more than Rock and Roll. It’s PUNK, extremely angry, in-your-face, Rock and Roll. You should do a month of Punk and/or Goth, but you might need some piercings (Safety pins thru your upper lip? Just kidding.).

    It’s a great look. If your pic was a poster at a club announcing an upcoming show, I would stand in line for a ticket. Seriously, you look like a warm-up act for the Ramones.

    Well, maybe the Coalition To Unchain Dogs would be interested in this style as part of their unchained fashion look.

    You look great! I think if you were wearing a tailored pant instead of jeans it would be arty slick. The jacket contrasts nicely with doggy shirt. The shirt is hilarious, I can’t wait to hear about the reactions, especially when it’s pick up time from school- you might scare a small child or a teacher. To me it’s more comical though.

      I did have to button up the jacket when I picked up August from preschool. I didn’t want to scare the children — or the other moms for that matter!

    I would call it totally awesome style, or super fun….not sure it needs an actual style. I LOVE IT!!!!

    If you think about it, arty slick and rock and roll are two sides of the same coin. They both have that rebel feel, that in-your-face confidence that makes an odd outfit look trendy. (Maybe that’s why rock stars date models?) But rock and roll has the anger element and arty slick’s more cool. So I think the angry dog puts you into rock and roll territory. (The cool stare of the jag tee earlier this week was arty slick — no hot anger, just that aloof stare.)

    Gosh, this is just so much fun!
