Outfit of the Day, Vol. 11: Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse With BCBG

Published in: Fashion, Just For Fun

Oh, hey. Um… How’s it going?


Me? What am I doing? Oh, I’m just working on my zombie look… Yeah, practicing for the big day. Wanna look my best for Z Day, ya know?

I mean, I don’t plan to be turned into a zombie (after all, who would look after Tabs?), but no one ever does, right? It still happens, and if/when it does, I want to look cute.

What do you think of this BCBG dress? Does it say to you, “Now there’s a sharp-looking zombie”?

I got the idea for it from this new book I’m reading called Warm Bodies, by Isaac Marion.

Three words: zombie love story. love

I know! What a killer idea (pun intended).

The official trailer for the book

The story’s told from the perspective of a zombie named “R.”

R falls in love with Julie, a human, after eating Julie’s boyfriend’s brain and absorbing his memories. Obviously. πŸ™‚ But like in all good love stories, things get a little complicated after that…

Which brings me to my outfit today!

You know how zombies are usually stuck wearing the same outfit forever? Could be a real drag, right?

I wouldn’t want to be wearing a light solid-color dress, because it would show every gore stain, and as much as I love stretchy pants, they aren’t the first outfit that comes to mind when I think, “zombie couture.”

Ideally, zombie Karen would be wearing something sassy, comfy and patterned, to better conceal any “food mishaps.” I’m a pretty neat eater now, but you have to assume a significant loss of manners.

That’s why I think this knit BCBG dress, with its Missoni-style pattern, would be perfect zombie wear.

I’m not finding it on the BCBG website tonight, but this BCBG printed wrap dress looks like another zombie-friendly option.

For what it’s worth, if you decide to order a BCBG dress online, you might want to order a size down. From my experience, BCBG dresses tend to run a little big, so I usually order one size smaller than I normally would.

I’m still on the fence about the shoes…

I love my yellow Seychelles wedges, but zombies do a ton of walking. Are wedges really a wise choice?

Now. Very important question. You’ve just been turned into a zombie. What outfit would you like to be wearing? πŸ™‚

    Haha! Love the dress and shoes!
    πŸ˜› I don’t ever plan on turning into a zombie-I’ve been training hard all year my friend to make darn sure of that!

    The yellow scandals are lovely and really bright up the whole outfit

  3. Paris B says:

    I love the dress! And the shoes! I haven’t thought about the zombie apocalypse to be honest. I don’t think I’d like to be one. Grey faced? I wonder if they do foundations for that πŸ˜‰

    H.A.W.T. Lovely dress, shoes and hair! That’s an interesting story line-tempted to pick it up (the book, i mean) :-D.

    And boy, i have a serious crush on Tabs–look at the eyes, the belleh, the tail…*sigh*

  5. Jenn says:

    You look great, Karen!

  6. Such a cute, summery outfit, Karen! Love the color of the dress with the bright yellow of the wedges–they really compliment each other well! You’d definitely be the hottest zombie around πŸ˜›

    Are you liking the book so far? I remember reading a sample of it on my Nook reader a while ago–it seemed really interesting but for some reason I forgot to purchase it! I’ll definitely make a note to do that tomorrow

  7. Loooooove this dress and the wedges on you!!! The colors can’t be more perfect! And Tabs!!! Don’t you love how cats want to be involved in everything when their help is not needed? lol

  8. Nina says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the entire outfit — yellow and orange are always winners in my book. πŸ™‚

  9. Ruchita says:

    Super cute, Karen! I love wearing dresses in summer. It makes it so easy and quick to get dressed in the morning.

    I love the pic of Tabs and his low hanging belly. So fluffy and cute!

  10. Kim says:

    That dress is super cute and very flattering. The best part of the first pic has to be Tabs’ expression, though. It says to me “is anyone going to intervene here?”. The answer, Tabs, is “no”. I love your zombie apocalypse posts!

    You wouldn’t want to hang with me after we were turned because I’d be in sweats and sneakers and the other zombies would undoubtedly be repulsed. HAHA!

    I’m a bad-ass zombie killer, I’m kinda like Trinity (Matrix) and Michonne (Walking Dead) rolled into one so I only wear black, and preferably leather. Only I have Hello Kitty underwear on underneath (a girls gotta be a girl, right?) But I do think a dress like that would be perfect for a fashionable zombie. And Warm Bodies is a GREAT book. By the way it’s been optioned as a movie! Let the Zombie love begin!

  12. Marian says:

    Really love the dress! I’m not becoming a zombie. I am legend!

  13. Tekoa says:

    As a zombie, I would probably be wearing a black t-shirt and jeans and running shoes. Its a general combination I wear most often as a warm human. I’d be cautious about wearing wedges as a zombie due to brittle bones and body rot. You could be shambling around one day and have your shins snap from unequal weight distribution.

  14. Love the dress though I would have probably chosen beige/brown sandals with it. You look great! πŸ™‚

    The dress is super cute on you and would totally hide a variety of brain-eating mishaps. A nude sandal would keep things relaxed and not twist your ankle during your quest for humans.

    Zombie Me sports a dark gray t-shirt, torn blue jeans my esprit walking tennies (soooo comfy!). I think I’d also need some kind of cross-zombie bag to hold snacks on the go.

    Love the outfit! The dress is so cute and summery and the shoes go so well with it.

    In that picture of Tabs you can grasp the reality of just how husky that tabby really is! I love it!!!

  18. Amanda Val says:

    Dress dress dress! So beautiful I’ll have to convince my sister to buy herself one πŸ˜€ – she’s a huuuge fan of prints like that! x

  19. Sam says:

    I would want to be in something comfortable, a little badass and that will last through whatever shuffling, stumbling, killing I’d need to do. Like black or brown leather pants, really low heeled or flat ankel boots, a berry colored top and denim vest.

    love the book, read it a while ago. Wish there were more like it.

    Beautiful dress πŸ™‚
