Dressing Like My High Fashion Pinterest

Dressing Like My High Fashion Pinterest, an outfit by Katie Selt for The Katie Edit www.thekatieedit.com

I'm fully aware that my sense of style I show on this blog and what I pin, or what I see in my head, are different. I love high fashion, and high impact maximalism in fashion, and I have forever lusted over the likes of Gucci, Viktor and Rolf and Moschino runways, but I'm fat, and fat people are not often the target audience for that kind of fashion sense. Plus, I can't afford luxury clothing!

But, what if I tried, ya know? What if I tried dressing a little like how I have always wanted to? 

An outfit consisting of a hot pink v-neck bishop sleeve blouse that buttons up half way, tucked into high waist hot pink, white, yellow, black and green large scale floral pants, and pink clogs.

This outfit is based on the high contrast floral Gucci was doing in 2016. The colorful flowers contrast against the black background on the pants, and the coordinated bright pink fitted yet dramatic sleeve blouse is so satisfying yet unexpected.

An outfit consisting of a white lace scalloped peter pan collar layered over a black long sleeve bodysuit with sheer black sleeves with polka dots tucked unto a black faux leather zip up mini skirt with red, hot pink, white and green embroidered flowers on the hips, black sheer tights, white lace ruffle socks and black ankle strap heels.

Though this outfit is not directly inspired by one single pin I've seen, the embroidered leather is something we've seen a lot of with, again, Gucci. I paired it with my favorite thrifted black bodysuit, and then added a lace collar over, to kind of emulate the white collars of the Viktor & Rolf Spring Couture '20. I love this skirt, and how it fits me, which is weird since I don't like tight fitting clothing!

An outfit consisting of a pastel pink scarf tied around the head like a turban, a black faux leather moto jacket with painted yellow, pink and white flowers along with various red nd orange roses and bee patches stitched on, a muted pink satin blouse with a pussy bow tied around the neck, tucked into a black tulle midi skirt, black sheer tights, white lace socks and velvet lace up midi boots.

Headscarves and customized leather jackets really scream Gucci to me, so, this is also a direct inspiration from Gucci. I customized the jacket myself, with hand painted flowers and vines, along with embroidered floral, bee and snake patches. It's the jacket of my dreams, honestly. I paired it with a pussy bow blouse and a tulle skirt for a high fashion meets day to day outfit!
