WiW: Wearing (almost) the same thing as a patient. Who is a man.

So, I get to work today and there was something urgent going down ("Dr. Lyn, we have someone who is actively crumping!!!"), so I didn't have time to grab my white coat. I arrived onto the ward with my jacket and all! And low and behold, my new patient today was wearing almost the same thing I was. Down to the bomber jacket, except he earned his through football and I earned mine through crusing the sale racks at Forever21! He also had a black and white striped shirt (no skirt though), and he wore black pants. He thought my outfit was hilarious. Also, he was fine, they just put the monitor on in correctly.

Regardless, here's my WiW - this is another dress that I had bought before SYC that I wasn't sure what to do with. I think the initial intention was to use the top and pair it with a solid skirt, but I think it's okay as a dress, even though with the pleats and the stripes, you can't see all the stripes - that's okay, right?

This bomber is so fun! Thanks for the recommendation, Angie!

    I love this dress on you Dr. Lyn!  Jailhouse stripes or cabana stripes are very on trend this season, as is the bomber.  Love, love love!

    PS I thought crumping was a kind of break dance routine, no?

    I love this dress. It's totally on trend.

    But oh, if only you'd gotten his pic too. For comparisons... ;>

    So fun!  Doctor/patient twins!!  I bet you looked a lot cuter than he did!

    I love this on you!  And the bomber makes it to die for.
  • Thistle replied 5 years ago
    Love this on you!  The stripes are divine, no need to hide the skirt at all!  The bomber jacket really amps it up a notch, but my classical girly side likes it better without  :)

    That dress is so cute on you, and I LOVE it with the bomber!
  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago
    LOVE LOVE LOVE with the bomber! And I bet you made your patient's day - lol!

    Funny story and not the sort of outfit I was expecting when I read your title.  Cute dress!  I really like it with the bomber jacket.

    Cool and girly at the same time..wish you had gotten a photo of him. :-)

    Too funny Dr Lyn. 
  • Scarlet replied 5 years ago
    This is so ridiculously cute on you I can't stand it! I had to log on just to say so. The bomber is perfect.

    Ha. Love the dress and jacket, you look cool. You are probably waaaay to young to have seen the movie "Twins" but it featured Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzeneggar (did I misspell, sorry) in a hilarious mixup of twins separated at birth. Your episode made me think of that movie and I laughed.
  • Suz replied 5 years ago
    You are hilarious - - as well as super-trendy and pretty in this! 
  • Sylvie replied 5 years ago
    Hehe.  What a great story.  It probably helped relax him knowing that his doctor has a similar sense of style.

    You are really rocking the bomber + dress combo.
  • Raisin replied 5 years ago
    Oh, I bet you looked so much cuter than him!  This looks great on you, love the B&W.  It's perfect. 
  • Joy replied 5 years ago
    More love for the bomber with a dress. It's working to my eye.  What a great story.
  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago
    I love the shape of this dress and the square neckline on you! It looks like you have a "varsity" jacket on (but not the patient's!) I also love the bubble necklace and the tension between lines and circles. This is so cute. (*sigh* now I want one!)
  • rae replied 5 years ago
    Ooh, that is a unique striped dress! It has that Tim Burton quality that I like in a stripe. Not too nautical, not too sporty. And I know you looked way better than your patient!
  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago
    I'm with DV, the square neckline and interesting sleeves are a part of the dress' charm.  Love the dress, and the story!
  • tarzy replied 5 years ago
    Too funny! (I also imagined the patient was dancing... not sure why that would require a doctor, though! )
  • Sveta replied 5 years ago
    I think it is a lovely dress, lyn and looks wonderful with the black bomber.
  • lyn* replied 5 years ago
    Thanks peeps! I really think the stripes are starting to grow on me!

    "Crumping" is a "House of God" term apparently, for someone about to die, or seriously deteriorate! :)
  • deb replied 5 years ago
    Oh my word!!! This is SO cute!!!
  • goldenpig replied 5 years ago
    Too funny! I love the dress and bomber on you. Wish you had gotten a pic with your "twin" patient!
  • fashionista926 replied 5 years ago
    I absolutely love that dress!! You look gorgeous in it....and I would love to see a doctor wearing something similar to me....it must mean the both of you have great style haha : )
  • annaj replied 5 years ago
    I love it! I love even more that the pleats hide some of the stripes - makes for a nice "surprise" element to the skirt!
  • Lantana replied 5 years ago
    Gorgeous, yummy stripes, this reminds me of the Ascot scene in My Fair Lady where everybody is wearing black and white. 
  • lyn* replied 5 years ago
    You mean I should have yelled at the slow medical student to "move his bloomin' arse"? ;)
  • carolbee replied 5 years ago
    That dress looks fab on you.
  • rae replied 5 years ago
    Hahaha... was his name Dover? 
  • lyn* replied 5 years ago
    No, but he shall forever be known as Dover!

    "Good morning Char... DOVER!"
