Mustard Mullet Madness

Thursday, December 8, 2011

I have been seeing a ton of 'mullet' skirts and dresses this season, which I happen to love! I guess I should explain what exactly the 'mullet' trend is for anyone who doesn't already know: The Mullet skirt or dress, implies that the hem is shorter in the front compared to the back (simply put, it's an asymmetric hemline). It is not a new concept in fashion, it just has a new name. Up until a few months ago I had never heard the word 'mullet' used in a positive manner. :D

Often times, I see other bloggers or a celeb wearing an article of clothing and I begin my search to find something similar for myself. The mullet trend, was not very high on my radar. Though, I really do love what I have seen, it did not propel me into full on hunt mode.

As luck would have it however, I happened to stumble across a very lovey mullet dress. I discovered this little number at my neighborhood Goodwill (of course). I find it most intriguing because, I think somehow the designer was able to squeeze not one, but three trends into just one garment.

1. It is mustard in color (fall trend)
2. The print is very close to all the tribal trends happening right now
3. The silhouette has been seen all over the runway lately

 I think the dress is a ton of fun and I was really excited to find it!

* I like to pretend that accessories like this are Vintage and are worth boat loads of money... but judging by the tag 'made in china' probably not :D *

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
