Adorable Jane from the fashionable blog, WorkThatWardrobe, has issued another exciting challenge!!! This one is a simple little one: wear an outfit based on a song.
Or at least it seemed simple at first.
In the end I have three different outfits based on three different songs. I'll show the other two tomorrow & the next day, just for the fun of it. Call it my torch song trilogy, lol ;)
This, my official choice, is the third one in actuality and was not even supposed to be related to the challenge whatsoever. I was just innocently trying on my brand new denim pencil skirt from Old Navy and asked DH to photograph it. (Btw, I got this GREAT garment thanks to OhThatGirl of the fabulous blog "What That Girl Wears". And let me tell you, she wore it beautifully...and when I raved about liking it she generously told me the skirt was for sale at that very moment for only $20. Thanx OTG, I love it!)
When the pictures were uploaded the first thought that popped into my head was that Procol Harum song, "Whiter Shade Of Pale" -- it was just too perfect a photographic accident not to use, call it Rock 'n' Roll kismet.
Perhaps ironically, I've often bemoaned my actual super pale skin -- if I even think about the sun I get sunburned. As a young girl growing up in the Malibu Barbie era before the advent of sunscreen I dreaded being the ghostly chick without a golden glow -- or worse yet, the crispy red befreckled lobster. But I've made my peace with it now and in my wiser adult years I even kind of like my milky white skin. Tho, not quite THIS milky white, lol!
The blouse is from NY&Co, stockings & belt from Target, shoes are secondhand Naturalizers. The silver chain is vintage -- my mother's from the 1960's -- perfect for the song's era coincidentally :)
Stay tuned for the next song tomorrow...for now I'm off to skip the light fandango and turn cartwheels 'cross the floor!!!
