This week's dress-a-friend is for Mel, as she is a derby aficionado and it is her birthday! So we are giving her a derby outfit and an after-party outfit.
The derby attire I picked up on in my brief time with the Battle Born Derby Demons (looong story), seems to involve primarily short skirts, fishnets and elbow pads. So I tried for some granola-chic and may have failed completely. I also failed in finding green leggings instead of tights, which is what I wanted, because fishnets just seem like asking for trouble. And weirdly patterned floor burns. The shirt is rad though. And I figure I can skip the accessories as she will be thoroughly covered in black velcro and pads.
For the casual granola-chic party girl I found another awesome derby tee. And since she is a jeans/heels kind of girl, obviously some jeans and heels. I think I should get extra points for the studded heels though, I love those! And since she's a little vague in the accessory dept. I gave her a little studded bracelet to go with the general air of badassery of the shoes, and a big-ass bag as I do know she is a fan of those.
And no, I didn't think of a good nickname. I figure if she's an aspiring derby queen she must already have one. So what is it, Mel? And how did I do?
