Genres by Melissa

So sometimes I like to loosely base my outfit on generes like cowboys, indians, ninjas, ballernias, princesses, the 20s.... Or movie characters, I recently saw Thor and was loving the nerdy/trendy outfit worn by Natalie Portman's character Jane. And! I would totally dress like the little girl in Toy Story 3....I secretly love tutus and rainboots. So this is totally one of my genre outfit days. The day started off with "Cowboy Take Me Away" from the dixie chicks and ended in this outfit: Cowboy meets ballerina.


I even found a similar skirt and scarf for all my ruffle and tulle lovers to check out!

Outfit: skirt: H&M, Boots: Aldo, Scarf: Boutique in Ghiradelli Square in San Francisco

So do you genre dress? What's are some of your favorite themes?

  1. I wish I dressed a bit more rock 'n roll; I see a motojacket in my near future.  Also, would love a tutorial on how to see if your pants are a flattering length, and suggestions for brown knee high boots.  Thanks!

  8. Love the outfit, especially LOVE The skirt! Weirdly enough I think I have that skirt, but yours looks fluffier and a little bit shorter. The one I have is from H&M, same color but longer. Goes to mid-calf. I'm in love with it, but yours is very cute! Great length!
