From Man Getter to Man Repeller: Holy Boob Cups!

I haven’t run an installment of From MG to MR in quite a while. Quite. In fact, if I remember correctly, the last time I did, I instructed all of you to turn porn into prunes. Unfortunately, I don’t have that sort of sage advice to offer today, just a fantastic lesson in layering light. It’s simple, really. Instead of wool, we basically use various forms of cotton for the layers and in some instances will likely apply holy shirt! hole-y shirts to the overall look, tambien. See that? I am so bilingual chic.

Ultimately, summer doesn’t have to mean a tank top and shorts so take a cue or two from the boob cups below and exercise your power to mask them.ย 

Also, put a bird on it. Why? Because.

dress: Prim NYC, shoes: Christian Louboutin
Step 1: Look how sad I am, it’s the wrath of the boob cups. That’s not really what I’m sad about, actually. My bedroom was 500 degrees on this day. Stupid building won’t turn on air until June 1 which at the moment given the torrential downpour and mild temperatures, I don’t mind, but shit man, we’ve had some hot days this May. That aside though, there’s something to be said about the compromising nature of this dress. The brocade skirt is puffy and interesting enough to ring in a man repeller, and the top, sexy enough to ring in a prostitute. I’m just kidding. Boob cups do not equal prostitute. They equal boobs that need tender love and caring. It’s a win, win, you see. Anyway…
long sleeve shirt: Reformation
Step 2: The wheels of prostitution are not in motion so I put a long sleeved cotton tee over the boob cups. I speculated that it might make for some stealthy layering.
striped crop top: American Apparel
Step 3: And my speculation was correct. A striped cropped t-shirt over the long sleeve t-shirt and holy moly me oh my, I’m matching. Look, I’m starting to giggle because I can feel weeners shrinking within a ten-block radius from my standing point.
But man oh man, my legs, my feet.
Me thinks it’s time for a shoe change…
ย My little pony goes drag! Hey RuPaul! I can’t stop exclamating!
Step 5: The colors, Duke. The colors! One yellow jacket and some bright pink shoes that look like throw pillows, coming right up! I still can’t stop exclamating!
Incase you didn’t hear the aforecry…my little pony goes drag!
And now, for the finishing touches:
rings: DANNIJO, Kimberly Baker, Bvlgari, Lucid, YSL

Rings and things! Because arm parties are cool, but do you know what’s cooler? Yes, yeah, yep, you’re right. The answer is finger parties. If at the very least because technically speaking, it’s a battle at two against ten.ย 

Okay now, your turn! Hide those boob cups!

  • it is not only about the layers, it is about being versatile and using one item to create so many different looks. Like your long strapless dress and the sweater. I love seeing you in different layers, it looks amazing when you wear it, not many people do it in such an amazing way. Above all that, not many people would look phenomenal in pony shoes. they are pretty high and bold and they can make you look like a cut off tree. Love the touch of color BTW

    Perfection. Only today I tried on my floral strapless dress *hangs head* but made it repellent with opaque tights, clumpy shoes, jacket and a bracelet that looks like a weapon.
    Finally, a dress I will actually wear. Thank you muchly the inspiration!

  • totally awesome. i love the transformation! and somehow i think its still cute enough to be a man getter. lol

  • I agree…You are still a man getter!

  • Wow! amazing outfit. your fantastic!

  • could you tell us what nail polish you're wearing on your toes? pretty please??

  • Your Valentino jacket is wonderful!!!
    I love it.

  • Hi, inspired by you I tried the layering as well on my blog, but with like baby-steps. I'll definitely need some more practice. Come and check out the result if you like!

  • Seriously … saw those shoes earlier today on your monochromatic post and if you don't remove them and mail them down to South Carolina ASAP so that the people on Charleston's streets may look at me falling on my ass on the cobblestone and make fun of me for wearing something other than Rainbows (the frequent shoe of choice in the humid southern states) then I shall have to make some myself since they are out of my budget. Believe my … you don't want to see DIY Louboutins.
