Gigi Kiersten A Touch of Marilyn

Happy Friday, peeps! I hope you had a good week so far. I also hope you guys had a wonderful week back to work as well. This whole photoshoot that you see here has a long tale attached to it. You see, I decided to woman up and finally take photos outside of my house and street. At first, I was going to try to take my photos downtown, because that seems to be the popular thing for fashion bloggers.

However, if you have five children and a busy household to manage to find time to take the long trip to Downtown San Antonio on the bus (I don’t drive) and then take photos is not something I can do very often. After the trip to Downtown was delayed, me being the resourceful fashion blogger that I am decided to start looking for potential photoshoot backgrounds in my own neighborhood.

I was determined to not go home until I took these pictures. With these pictures, I decided to further jazz them up by using some nice free photoshop actions I found on Deviantart.

As for this outfit, I wanted to put on something that you can wear out to have a couple drinks with your friends. I would also suggest wearing this outfit for a date night as well. So, I wore my Marilyn Monroe t-shirt that I got years ago but just found after I cleaned out my closet. It’s not shown in these pictures but the back is cut out. It is very sexy, but since it’s winter and it’s finally gotten cold down here I decided to put a black sequin cardigan over it.

This cardigan was part of a skirt suit set, but I decided to use the top as a cardigan. A lot of people will tell you that you can’t wear sequins in the daytime, but that is not true at all! When you wear sequins in the daytime, you have to dress rest of the outfit down. So I decided to I paired this sequin cardigan with a sparkly t-shirt and my brand new bootcut jeans that I bought Walmart.

I’m so happy that they actually fit and not a pair of high waters. I’m 5’ll, so it goes without saying that pants and jeans are a huge hassle for me. They are never long enough, and I end up looking like erkel. There is a reason why I wear nothing but tights and skirts.

Next, I chose these western style knee-length black boots that I bought very early on in this season. However, much like my brown suede boots, they were not meant for fat girls with wide calfs. So I decided to adjust them and cut up to my calf.

And finally, I added my huge very beddazled betty boop handbag. It’s what’s my mother likes to call my “anything but the kitchen sink” bags. Which, she shouldn’t talk because she was the one who bought me the damn bag for Christmas a few years back.

With that, that is my complete dressy casual plus outfit that is perfect for a date night or a night out with the squad. What do you think? Do you love it or hate it? Let me know down in the comments!
