OOTD for Skorch Magazine: “GaGa for Houndstooth”

In this month’s newest issue of Skorch Magazine all of the editors and contributors were asked to do an outfit of the day post inspired by a musician. I chose Lady GaGa’s houndstooth outfit for my inspiration. I had seen her wear this ensemble some time ago and although head-to-toe houndstooth was a bit much, I dug the concept. Last month I happened to stumble upon the dress that I’m wearing while doing a search on the Wal-Mart website for Miss Tina apparel. Now my dress is not by Miss Tina but rather a designer named Alexis Taylor but it popped up under the search. The dress retails for only $19.88 and incorporates the current trends of peplum and houndstooth. The dress has pretty good stretch material in it for the price and the peplum accent is perfect for that added figure-flattering effect. I took it back old school by adding the lil’ top hat and long gloves in some of the pics. But my over the knee boots were Lady GaGa all the way since you can’t really tell if they’re leggings or actual shoes, hah.
