Shattuck: I am a female, so my look is a big deal to me. I’m rather obsessive about clothes, so if I find something I like, I wear it everyday until it’s rags. And it’s totally hard for me to find clothes I like at the stores because fashion is ridiculously stupid, and the ugliest clothes always end up at the stores.
But here’s a little list of what I want and what I look for.
Peter Pan-collared dresses
I love that look. What else can I say about it. Anyone with eyeballs can see that it’s the best look ever. I am a 50-year-old gal, but I still like dressing like a toddler.
I worship the dress Marilyn Monroe wears in The Prince And The Pauper. It’s a white, kinda see-though affair with 3/4-inch sleeves. I’ve been chasing that look for a long time with varying degrees of success.
Shirts with fat horizontal stripes
Check out my Instagram sometime. I wear stripes all the time. All the fucking time, actually. It makes me feel normal.
Clamdigger-style jean cut-offs to the knees with frayed ends
I hate the short shorts that seem to be all the rage this year. Ladies walking around with gigantic dimpled asses hanging below the shorts line. Looks a bit like a loose diaper. Amazing. It’s helping me lose weight since everywhere I look I see people that make me lose my appetite. I wish they would see the light and embrace my favorite shorts, the clamdigger-style jean cut-offs with the frayed ends. I do it to all my pants in the summer. Obviously a reaction to being hot. But one day my sister and I were hanging out and I looked down, and my frayed end clamdiggers just looked ridiculous and we both started cry/laughing. Either it was a moment of clarity or a brief bit of insanity. I am wearing them right now with a three-day-old stripped shirt that I wear to bed and all throughout the day. It’s comfortable. I feel like me.
