Hello, boys and girls. This is the 4th installment of “Get Dressed to This” leading up to the Retail DJ Get Dressed for This” Showcase at B.East! August 4th is SO close, but never fret; I still have 4 more special edition posts coming up for you before the event!
For tonight’s Get Dressed to This, I’ve decided to put you readers in the trenches, literally! I found this beautiful dress at AllSaints Spitalfields that is a modern, sartorial remix if you will on the trench coat. According to their site, the Amka Trench Dress is ” has an extreme funnel neck and is inspired by traditional trench coats with heavy topstitching and lapels details at neck.” Though it’s no longer available on the site in black (which is the dress color I am featuring tonight), you can find it in dark brown, if the design suits your fancy. I love this dress because its silhouette is slightly vintage and almost military-style, but the asymetry and draping, despite its sturdy fabric, make it all the more modern. Depending of the accessories, you can look like a spy, femme fatale, or wartime reporter–either way, you can’t lose.
Speaking of modern, for tonight’s mix, I’ve got a set created for Slutty Fringe (great blog, check it out) by Lostbahnhof that does quite the modern musical tailoring of house, breakbeat, and new wave style tracks that cannot be missed. The mix takes a few minutes to warm up, but once it does, its deep trip into jacked grooves will make you march to the beat of a different drum (machine).
So anyway, have a good time tonight, but before you do, Get Dressed to This:
