The Pursuit of Cool

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

I'm not cool.

I was never part of the "in" crowd at school. So I often think there's a part of me that aches, that thrills at the pursuit of cool. Not trendy... cool.

Cool is...

A jagged silver necklace with the perfect imperfections.

Never too cool for school.

A slouchy, cropped dress with long sleeves and charmeuse sheen.

Preen Whirl Dress via La Garconne

An odd flat floral sandal with cutout details.


Never loses her cool.

A jumpsuit cut wide in all the right places.


A one-sleeve dress that hangs and curves suggestively, like a worn nightgown.


Cool is... nobody's fool.

i was never cool either but i feel alot more confident with myself these days. however.. not so much without all these amazing clothes you've just posted. so true about the one sleeve dress that hangs off, especially on the shoulder - i dont give a damn kind of cool.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I want all of these, please. I wanna be cool too! :P

This is such a great post. I wish this was the definition of cool in my high school. Unfortunately, at my suburban high school in the late 90s, cool meant wearing boring clothes from A&F. Sigh.
