Another week is upon us! And that means more outfits from my itty-bitty capsule wardrobe.
Today, I mixed up a bunch of non-matching things:leather shirt, the third wear of the purple brocade skirt, the third wear of the taupe tank and the second wear of the boots.
With all the Smoking Lily stuff I picked up on the weekend (and can't wear yet, arg!), I had it on my mind, so I dug out this cool obi belt:
here as a hat-band for my steampunk outfit.
I don't know if this outfit totally works; maybe the skirt is too poufy, but oh well. Live and learn.
I do get to wear my crème de la crème Smoking Lily find:
I love that the back of it is nicely tailored to dip in at a woman's waist:
here's their blog entry about it.
You can't see it very well in the pictures above, but look what it has all over it:
smart creatures - I hope wearing them will grant me special cognitive powers!
Shirt (Danier Leather, thrifted), tank sweater (Ellen Tracey, swap from Caro), skirt (Plum), tights (Miss Sixty), obi (Smoking Lily, consignment), boots (Miz Mooz), necklace (Anne Klein, vintage 80s, Grandma J's), coat (Smoking Lily).
I love the silk-y obi with that buttery leather top. I think the proportions are alright, and the coat just pulls it all together. Now to gush over the coat - HOW adorable! The cut is great, and I love when coats are lined with things other than plain acetate, especially when it's something like fleece or cotton.ReplyDelete
I think that's a good price for a coat. I never really thought of jackets and coats as a good investment, but changing thinking to a more durable, enduring wardrobe is key.
How is wearing leather as a top material? I love the effect, but it seems like it might get hot.
Megan, the coat isn't actually lined - the cotton's reverse side is fleece! Like a denim sweatshirt.ReplyDelete
I don't find leather to be either too hot or too cold - it warms up to your body temperature and kind of stays there. Just like leather shoes breathe and don't make your feet hot.
I like the obibelt. If you wear enough colors,they end up matching. It's true!ReplyDelete
I think the outfit works very well together -- nice mix of colors, textures, & shapes.ReplyDelete
I'm a huge fan of this outfit. I like the proportions, the textures, and the colors--perfection!ReplyDelete
If you want to go shopping at the end of this month so you have more new fun finds for March's 30 pieces just let me know!
Love the octopus coat! That belt is perfect with the outfit too :)ReplyDelete
Your leather shirt is the best! I love your whole look, esp your new octo coat (I was expecting more arms) : > Thanks so much for linking up to Visible Monday, you look fabulous.ReplyDelete
This coat is so cool! And I think the price is great - coats really are a great investment :)ReplyDelete
Love the Octi-coat!ReplyDelete
I think that leather blouse is going to be a huge player in your wardrobe-it's so versatile!!
