I was diggin’ this American Rag duster the second I saw it. It’s been so long since I’ve liked something at Macys and in the juniors section no less! But the $70 price tag on it deterred me for over a month…so you can imagine how pleased I was to find it on clearance for $30 the other day. I imagined it with burnt orange or dark red skinnies at first but I don’t have either (though I am patiently awaiting the J Brands that I am getting gifted to me from Lucky FABB!). I decided to throw it over this shamefully sheer maxi, belt it, and add a scarf since I am sorta sick. With the vintage bag I got in Seattle last time I was there, it almost has a sophisticated 90s look to it, don’t ya think? Totally unintentional, I promise.
Something about this duster reminds me of Penny Lane from Almost Famous. Like I want to wear it with some destroyed bell bottoms and a bra and dance while drinking pomegranate tea. It’s got a 70s/90s/Middle Eastern vibe, and then it even reminds me of my high school days in the early 2000s, the first time dusters were popular in my life time.
Anyway, that’s the story of this duster and the fact that I love it!
P.S. i just realized I look like a fcking amazon woman in this photo! I mean look, I look like I’m on stilts, not stilettos (but I’m wearing flat boots!). I am 5’10" which is pretty tall but they weren’t joking about maxi anything being elongating huh?
