Just in case you were wondering what you should wear if you ever have to be Kermit the Frog for a live performance of "It's Not Easy Being Green," I have your answer here. I went with this green maxi dress and flower crown for a very earthy Kermit. My other option was a green felt unitard and some fake frog ears, which admittedly, did not look that bad on me. I went with this ensemble to be less controversial. I mean my performance was right before a woman who was going to sing "Ave Maria" and "Memory," and I thought a felt unitard might seem mocking.
My husband and I like to practice something called "slow tech." It's where we limit the use of cell phones, computers, iPads, iPods, or anything with a screen and then we act smug and judge people for not connecting to each other on a "human" level like we are. Aren't we just so above it all? That is until one Sunday afternoon when we were phone-less, frantically bumbling around the city like rabid animals searching for a pastrami sandwich at some place called Deli Board which ended up being a little dry. What I discovered was not just the obvious, which is that we are so dependent on our phones, but that the most simple tasks can drive you absolutely mad. For example, without my phone, I became obsessed with the time. Like, I had no idea what time it was throughout the day and it completely stressed me out. I didn't even have anywhere to be, I just had to know! Or going to the movies. Sounds good right? Sure, let's look up some times, oh I can't, I don't have my phone. Or finding the sandwich shop, where the fuck is it? I don't know, I don't have my phone. Where are we? I don't know, I don't have my phone. Let's call an Uber to get ourselves home. I can't, I don't have my phone. Forget it, let's just get to a bus stop and take public transportation back. Hello, I can't find the bus stop, because, you guessed it, I don't have my phone!!!! Sure we may be slaves to our phones, but I got a little taste of living back in 1998 and it was bitter. Some guy even had the audacity to tell me that the shop was "south of the northeast corner" of some street. Like anyone knows what that even means.
When can a gal wear a long white Grecian maxi dress with a pea green suede jacket? Anytime she wants! I love me a good maxi dress and I love a good maxi dress that I can dress up or down even more. I went to a hoity toity high tea lunch date in this ensemble and it was perfectly clean and cool. But I can toss on some flip flops and grab a coffee in it as well. Plus I'm loving this whole white trend because I can pair this white dress with a million different jackets or sweaters and you automatically have yourself 20 new outfits. That's a lot of bang for your buck baby.
This week, I collaborated with Lookmazing for their Who Wore It Best competition and styled this Topshop crop top (gotta love saying it). I love it, it's really cute, but I would be lying if I said that I wasn't a little worried about styling this item. I mean, it's adorable, but when it arrived at my door and I pulled it out of the box, it was the teeniest tiniest little piece of green fabric I had ever seen! I almost considered wearing it as a bra. But thanks to it's stretchable capabilities and a back zipper, this old lady was able to squeeze right into this puppy.
