(Dress: Dianne Von Furstenburg/ Blazer: Zara/ Bag: Coach/ Heels: Nine West)
Have you ever worn white after labor day, and found that death came for you in the form of menzies or dog shit? Me too. I like to think myself as a logical and level-headed lady, save for my permanent periods of psychosis, but I cannot help but wonder if certain superstitions hold meaning.
We've all heard these bizarre old wives tales that are passed on through generations; that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day, an apple a day keeps a doctor a way, and a black cat crossing your path will hail bad luck. I then contemplated, by scratching my head, chin, and private parts until they were raw and bloody, if such frivolous superstitions also hold true when it comes to fashion.
For example, I've had several friends claim that they had experienced ill-luck when they wore certain colors, namely black, or that certain pieces of jewellery inhabited magical qualities of the amulet variety that brought them good luck.I, too had an unlucky winter coat; every time I put it on, it was freezing outside. But whatchu gonna do when it comes for you, BAD LUCK, BAD LUCK, WHAT YOU GONNA DO? This was an Inner Circle reference. Call me if you don't know what I'm talking about.
I dispelled all of these silly notions of fashion superstition(s), until death came for me in the form of this lime-green Dianne Von Furstenburg dress. I bought this dress a few months ago in Houston, and wore it the very same day I bought it, only to find ill omen befall me. In the few hours that this dress inhabited my body, I managed to lose $900, engaged in a heated argument with a Saks Fifth Avenue employee, resulting in a permanent ban for me in the said store (LOLZ, I'm such a badass yo), chipped my front tooth right down the middle, was fined a speeding ticket for $400, and then proceeded to burn the said DVF dress when I later ironed it that night.
Now, I don't know if this bad luck befell me because I failed to forward a chain mail to 10 of my closest friends from the night before, but one could hypothesize that Lady Furstenburg is out to get me. I knew this lime dress was trouble when it walked in, so shame on me now! TROUBLE, TROUBLE, TROUBLE?
So, do you have any articles of clothing that bring you good/bad luck? Anyone step on a crack to break your mother's back? Anyone? Anyone? Yes? No? Ok, bye.
