Have you heard about The Messy Project? If not, read about it now and you’re welcome. It’s one of the most genius ideas I’ve seen around the blogosphere. Kelly, who I featured in a post a while ago about other bloggers with my same name, created this amazing monthly project and here is what she had to say about it, “I know from my personal styling experience that a lot of people have trouble styling certain items. They may look at a top & instantly think, ‘I can’t wear that…what would I do with that?’ So I wanted to find a fun way to interact with other bloggers incorporating fashion help. Something to convey who we are. To show our style. To put our creative minds to work. To challenge us to step outside of the box. To express our inner fashionista. To show people the different ways to style an item depending on your body type & you. So #TheMessyProject was born.”
When I was invited to be part of this I knew that Kelly would definitely pick something outside of my standard, neutral palette. From another description of the project that reads, “I pick out the item please know you may get something that you normally would never ever wear. But that’s the point of The Messy Project – to challenge yourself. To be creative & step outside of the norm.” UM, YES. When I opened the adorable package to find HIGH WAISTED HAREM PANTS I started hysterically laughing, yes, Kelly, you got me, something I definitely would not pick out – um, no to the print, no to the cut, no to the material, just no, no to the elasticized banded waist, no to the pleated waist. These are definitely the type of thing I would stay away from like the PLAGUE. But styling them was actually a ton of fun – here is what I did with them…
And if you read the text above you know I was not the only one who got a pair of the high-waisted harem pants featuring a dash print and matching sash – check out how I these four other lovely ladies styled these crazy bottoms:
