Look of the Day: Im Blue Da Ba Dee...Low Budget Kelis

 This as been one of the strangest summers ever thanks to Covid-19. I barely got any looks in because there aren't many places to frequent. Plus, who has time to be risking their life for the 'rona? Not I. Luckily, I did manage to get one major look in that I've been planning on since winter. I wanted to come through and end summer with a bang with my "Low Budget Kelis" look! I've always loved the artistry and style of Harlem singer and now chef Kelis Rogers since I was a child. She is definitely one of my earliest and most favorite fashion inspirations. 

I wanted to create a late 90's/early 2000's look based off this sumptuous blue floral Steppin' Out sleeveless dress. 




I just had to add in some metallic, holographic pieces to compliment the style of the era. I mean that with blue freaking hair? I would have certainly been ready to attend a Summer Jam fest circa 2000.





At first I was a bit apprehensive of how this would all come together seeing that it's so much blue, but it came out perfectly! *cues "Blue" by Eiffel 65.

Dreess: Steppin' Out Vintage 90's blue floral

  3. You nailed it! These looks were all the rage Kelis was rocking ombre when folks hadn't really gotten into it. Lil Kim was wearing colored hair in her videos and we were at home soaking up their style.
