A Unique Perspective on Sameness

30 01 2009

And now for something new…or not. As you’ve probably gathered, a lot of us bloggers are wearing the SAME DAMN THING today. Achariya issued this challenge in response to some conversations on plurk. I think most of us bloggers have caught flak from time to time because we’ve blogged something someone else already showed. But this challenge is to show you that while we are wearing the same item, we look completely different. We all bring our own personality and sense of style to an outfit. So what if someone else already blogged it? Maybe you didn’t care for it the way you saw it once, but the second time was a look you could see yourself wearing? Isn’t that fashion in its truest form?

Our item of sameness is the Men’s Cambridge Cuffed Sleeve shirt from Armidi. I dragged Rhodesy into this challenge (actually, she volunteered) and just in my blog alone, we created two completely different looks.

I’ve gone Punk Chic by pairing the Cambridge shirt in Aqua Afrillia with the Black 3/4 Pants (Kitty Pants) from WRONG. I chose Aqua to bring out my eyes, but it comes in a myriad of color options. I completed the look with some well thought out accessories and my Basic Boots from WRONG.

Of course, being a Men’s shirt, the prim cuffs and collar are H-U-G-E. But a quick resizing and they’re just fine. I left mine a little big because I thought it went better with the look I was going for, but you can make them as small as you want.

Rhodesy went more for the Glamourously Sexy Chic look by throwing the Purple Lily Corset from Insolence over her Cambridge Cuffed Shirt in Aufren Light Grey.

The SLink Leather Pants continue the sexy look and the boots from Storm Schmooz don’t hurt either.

One shirt, two different looks in my blog alone. You might get tired of seeing this shirt on the feeds today, but then you might find it to be an interesting experiment like I do. And who knows? Maybe you’ll even find a new perspective on fashion.
