You Look Like a Hooker


      You may remember this post where my boyfriend helped me put together an outfit he liked. I came up with the idea while watching Ice Loves Coco and I saw that Coco always puts together three outfits before going out with Ice, shows them to him and then he chooses his favorite. It's not that he's a fashion enthusiast but she wants him to like the clothes she's wearing so he'll be happier taking them off later. Her words.
      After watching the episode, I thought: "Why doesn't she just let him pick an outfit all by himself, why does she have to give him options?" So I decided to give my boyfriend the opportunity to pick an outfit one night before going out. To make him happy, to put him to the test, who knows why. Since he doesn't look too shabby himself, I was hopeful and somehow completely forgot that I'm not dating Jeremy Scott.
      He came over and I said: "Babe, if you could, what would you have me wear? Sky's the limit, go crazy, pick an outfit."
      "I don't care, you look good in everything." That wasn't a compliment, trust me. That was just some very deceitful wording for: "I see your computer is turned on so you dress yourself while I check my Facebook page."
      "No, I'm serious. Humor me. Skirt, pants, shorts, what?"
      "We're really doing this?"
      "Yes."
      "I don't even know what kind of clothes you have." So much for paying attention.
      After a few minutes, he managed to decide on a couple of things and selected the following: red high-waisted skin-tight pants, white skin-tight low-cut top, black cropped fur coat and black platform boots. The colors didn't surprise me because red, white and black are his favorite color combination but the items themselves did. I looked at him and said:
      "This... Isn't going to work."
      "Na-ah, you have to try it on. How can you know if you don't even try it on?!"
      So I did. I put everything on while he was, in fact, happily facebooking away and then tapped him on the shoulder. As he turned around, for a split second he didn't say anything but then a stupid grin spread across his face:
      "You look like a hooker!"
      "No shit!"
      I made a few modifications, which he approved, and we were out the door. What happened made me think: If Coco looks the way she does after preselecting stuff herself, how would she look if she gave Ice the freedom to put an outfit together from scratch?!


I'm wearing:
Skirt: Newyorker
Top: H&M
Jacket: Newyorker
Beanie: local shop in Breza (BiH)
Boots: Dr. Martens
Tights: Calzedonia

  4. This was a hilarious post! Guys usually pick clothes that are slightly skankier than you would pick out yourself - they don't know the modesty rules - but sometimes they can pick out something cool and unexpected - ya BF just needs more practice ;-)

    1. I was thinking the same thing, about more practice, but I have to see first if he agrees with this idea.:D

  5. Haha, you might have found it a little irritating for your boyfriend not picking a better outfit, but I found this little story really cute. I don't have a boyfriend, but I never thought he might possible pick the clothes I should where. It's an interesting way of thinking.
    I know "A Clockwork Orange" was originally a book and there are big differences between it and the movie, but I never got the chance to read the book :(

    Have a nice week,

  6. As I was reading this, I was getting all excited about seeing his selection on you (not excited in that way, more curious)but I can kind of imagine the outcome ha ha. A woman like Co Co knows exactly what she is doing by giving the option of 3 outfits rather than the whole wardrobe; she's maintaining ultimate control over what she wears, whilst leaving Ice 'thinking' he has the control and an eye for fashion by choosing the outfit - he doesn't!

    Love that programme, watched it yesterday where a similar scenario happened when he suggested the red dress for the dinner meeting.

  9. I never raised my boyfriend dress me ... was just strange... but it`s a good idea to create random outfits. Maybe they can see something we overlooked. But i have learned something of this post... must make small adjustments before

  12. I'm amazed you didn't slap him when he said that - not that I think hookers look bad, but just saying... It's even worse that he picked the clothes before saying it. I'm sure you looked lovely and that what he had said the first time was true - that you look good in everything. I suppose men get some leeway for perennially thinking with the wrong head and for having occasional bouts of foot-in-mouth disease. I've had that myself.

    I love the New Yorker skirt you're wearing in the photos above.

    I think Ice and Coco think alike about her outfits. Coco is not the average woman. She works very very hard at maintaining that full rounded bottom and loves to show it off. Contrary to tabloid speculation it's real. She has done articles and videos on the exercise regimen she uses. She's amazing for any age. I wish I had a bottom like hers. I'm sure that would bring a lot more views to my lingerie review posts.

    1. Don't get me wrong, I like Coco, but her sense of style can be a bit risqué and I can't imagine it being even more out there if Ice took over.:) But she's hot, no doubt, her bum is glorious!

  14. I think most guys don't pay enough attention to do a great job at putting a complete outfit together for a woman. (Yes, a bit of a stereotype.) In fact, I wouldn't even ask all my girl friends to put an outfit together for me, just a trusted few.
