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.
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. 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?
