What’s Zo Wearing? October 21, 2007

Fall! Autumn!! Sort of. While I go to sleep each night wishing to wake up freezing, it hasn’t really hit LA yet. In any case, I’m dressing the part. More black, grays, browns, olive, deep purple and dark cherry tones – all on my radar when selecting dailywear stuffs. I’ve dyed my hair a deeper violet-blue, even.

Of late I’m especially fond of loosely draped items combined with fitted ones, and various combinations thereof. To be honest, half the time I just feel like wearing boots, a sheet of fabric pinned creatively, topping it off with a ridiculously priced jacket and calling it a day. I imagine popular fashion’s retro currents haven’t reached the days of alterna-togas just yet, and you’d all roast me. So here is a facsimile! Just know I’d rather be wearing a sheet.

Knit wrap: Ross
Dress: Melrose
Boots: Ross
Arm warmers: Tokyo
Bag: shop near Asakuza temple, Tokyo
Over the knee tights, match the hair: 100 yen store, Tokyo [100 yen = $1!]

    Hmm…the the sartorial possibilities of the alterna-toga are hitherto unexplored, there is an entire world of colors, patterns and creative pinnings ignored by both the Roman forum and the cheap-beer-soaked toga party! Plus having several meters of fabric on one’s person can be handy in all sorts of emergency situations.

    That’s a pretty silly outfit alright

    Ben: I inch closer toward the toga every day. I’m Glad we see eye to eye on this

    Mengele: Let’s see your outfit, shall we? Bestow your wisdoms upon me.

    Maybe you should look into saris and sari related garments? They seem to be distant relations to the toga, but always tend to look so polished and elegant and sophisticated.

    I’m loving this column.
    Where’s the dye from?

    Hey Laura – Thank you so much! The Dye is Blue Velvet by Special Effects. My favorite blue yet.
