Take Your Bet, Who Wore it Best

Leandra Medine | May 3, 2011

More fun than competing against other human beings, rainbow fish and little baby ponies when it comes to the Who Wore it Best contests, are inanimate objects and in some instances, large tables, too. This might not make sense in this exact moment but you just wait. By the time we’re finished here, you’ll be packing your bags while simultaneously rereading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

If the aforementioned hints are an indication of anything, it is that cr@zy L@$ Veg@$ should be spelled with atmarks and dollar signs. Not really though, it’s ambitious to derive that from a book by Hunter Thompson.

In any case. Let’s talk tables.

blouse: Equipment, vest: Veda, jeans: Rag & Bone, shoes: Christian Louboutin, rings: DanniJo, Kimberly Baker

As you can see, I am very good at sitting on them. Especially when they are immobile, connected to windows and walls and may or may not feature storage space for Jewish books and things of the sort masked by cabinets.

I know, I know. Man Repeller? Me? Yeah right. But on to more important things.

When I put this outfit together for dinner a week earlier than this photo was taken, I crossed out the prospect of looking like a Christmas tree because the latter half of the outfit is more winter fresh neon than it is alpine green. I was not however, equipped to handle what would soon thereafter dawn on me…

Holy macaroon seed! I look like a casino table. And so I mandated, I shall post. And posting I have done. So tell us, readers, who wears the colors better? My human beating heart, or the table above, with no concept of hurt feelings…?

Not trying to skew your opinion about who to choose but…while yes, a casino table can win you buttloads of money (but conversely also lose that shit for you,) last I checked, it couldn’t do this!

…Or this!

So even though I’ve just displayed uncanny capabilities such as placing various finger tips over and around my eyeballs and crawling on large cabinet units with none other than a coveted pop leg, ultimately, the decision is yours.

So tell us, who wore it best?

    The table has more accessories than you do, but every time you wear those Louboutin wedges I salivate. So you win. Boom.

    looking like a casino table! I think some people would like to gamble or take a gamble on you. imagine that. and where is the roulette!!! Anyway, I think you need more gold and bling bling if you want to be a casino table. But I like the idea of you+vegas+gambling!!! And I am dying to see your house/apartment. It looks so interesting and full of amazing furniture and accessories. I love the vest combined with the shoes, the black looks amazing with the bright colors

    WELL, to be completely fair, I would have to hear from the table. If his (yes, sorry he is a him)writing style could possibly be better, he might give you a run for your money!! Heheh… get it.. money…? oh well. 😉

    Ha ha! You and the casino table might have tied, but the Louboutins gave you the edge <3 <3 Great post.

    love it!

    I was already wondering what the first table had to do with your outfit, until I scrolled down and saw the casino table. And then I wondered what is going on in your head… Either way, it is definitely making your blog work!

    Love, Lisa

    you, obviously. i also see some resemblance to a stop light… where's the yellow at?


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/06303665587576888183 Nomadic D.

    your shoes and your last pose put you over the edge. poor table didn't even see it coming.


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/07084434035378797267 jennysanzo

    I too was confused and thought the table you were sitting on was the table in question… ha! Love this post… you def wore it best – besides that casino table wears the same thing every day…how predictable!


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/00740432033968030015 Andrea

    Well, I have a personal grudge against casino tables (and baby ponies… THEY KNOW WHAT THEY DID), because casino tables tend to lose me money.

    Then again, you have been inspiring me to spend all of my money on accessories that help repel my husband… which leaves me frustrated but at least it's an adequate form for birth control. Hm. You know, I'll give you the leg up on this one. And not just because you are posing with your legs actually up in the air.

    roulette is my vice of choice, but my vote is for the man repeller.


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/14227790770455857624 The Fancy Teacup

    You totally showcase the color combination better than that inanimate thing. And those Louboutin wedges are a knockout!

    much love.

    The table has all those words though. Oh lovely words. Put on some words and you will definitely have the win.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02868997983098473228 Tamia

    Ionknow…your shoes are dope, but the table says "COME." In CAPS. That is clearly the best case scenario in pretty much any situation.


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08932494740963203304 Terri

    I have to say, this time around, you definitely did.
    That table has NOTHING on you 😛

    gosh, tough call, but clearly it was you. never been a big fan of the poker table until you sported that outfit. rock on.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/12287191429629089142 fromblank

    look at your amazing shoes! which i guess means you wore it better because i aint seen no amazing shoes on that casino table!

    Haha, great post! I'm going to say you wore it best! I don't see the casino table with a hot pair of wedges… but nonetheless, great outfit! Those pants are my new must-have.


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/16222118211588319318 Lexi

    You win, clearly. And I love you. I laugh out loud when I read your blog, which is kind of awkward when I'm supposed to be reading important stuff at work. Then of course, once I've laughed, co-workers look over my shoulder to catch a glimpse at the funny, and they see you posing like a cheetah in a window frame. So awesome!

    why don't ALL fashion bloggers pose the way you do in that last pic? i mean, it is the best way to showcase the clothes and also the blogger's man repelling style…
