Fashion Saturday

I discovered this garment, from designer Rick Owens, on Gilt Groupe. It’s called the Long Jungle Vest:

I’ve been trying to decide where I might wear my Long Jungle Vest. Here are some options:

To my cousin’s wedding, where I would ask, “Wait, didn’t the invitation say Black Tie or Long Jungle Vest?”

To a cocktail party, where I could tell everyone, “You see? Doesn’t it look better without sleeves?”

To the office, where if anyone looked at me oddly, I would say, “Oh my God, what’s wrong? Do I have something in my teeth?”

This next look is called the Nylon Island Jacket:

I could wear it:

When I’m visiting Nylon Island.

When my Long Jungle Vest was at the dry cleaners.

When I was working in either a public school cafeteria, or at a car wash.

This last item is called the Smock Tee:

I think it would work:

At a job interview which involved the words, “Rinse, please.”

If I was attending a costume party as a Mocha Latte.

At my inauguration as the Mayor of Nylon Island.
