For those of you old enough to remember the TV show "WKRP in Cincinatti" - well, this is my Herb Tarlek jacket.here) where I wore it twice. I noted in the recap that it required better planning for wardrobing - and it is an overwhelming piece! There's a lot of colours in it - pink, red, purple, baby blue, mint green, white - and mixing it with all colour is just too much. I had intended to get rid of it - I even said in the recap that it was leaving my closet! - and yet here it is. Too good to give up.
here in a daisy-like ensemble in early May. I have learned my lesson about using neutrals to help ground an outfit, and let certain pieces shine.
here only a week ago in a pin-up/rocker look. Instead of the skirt being the focus piece, the jacket takes centre stage.
Jacket (Tommy Hilfiger, consignment), top (Le Chateau, consignment), skirt (Ocean West, consignment), shoes (Jump for the People, consignment), earrings (Oscar & Libby's), Fulvia ring (Wendy Brandes).
This morning I caught Vizzini rooting in my purse.
I actually think the red helps balance the 'loud'. I've learned if you don't want a bold piece to stand out SO much, pair it with another bold piece. Or maybe I just like being crazy loud!ReplyDelete
Naughty boy! Our kitties like elastic bands too, but they don't chew them. Just carry them around in their mouths and skate them across the floor.
Gorgeous outfit! The jacket and skirt make a beautiful pair, and a white top and nude shoes really let the colors shine!ReplyDelete
Haha Vizzini in your bag is so cute! It's like he thinks it's a bag full of wonderful toys for him! I'm lucky the most Cooper has ever done is nap on my bags :)ReplyDelete
Really like this jacket, I'm glad you kept it! It's so nice with the red skirt and the neutral pieces :)
Ha! Herb Tarlek! My English husband has no idea what I mean when I refer to some jackets as being Herb Tarlek jackets. Glad to see I'm not the only one whose mind goes there, when presented with a bold jacket.ReplyDelete
Love what you've done with it here, and I agree with Megan -- the red balances it.
I remember Herb! But you are so lovely in this jacket and Herb was . . . Herb : > Great shoes and jewels too. Vizzini hunts in the dark jungle!ReplyDelete
This ensemble works beautifully. Glad you kept that jacket!ReplyDelete
He he kitty! My kitties like to inspect open bags too. You have to be careful sometimes I guess!ReplyDelete
I really like the balance in this outfit - the skirt is awesome and the blazer is awesome and they work well together!
That jacket is much to nice to be associated with Mr. Tarlek! :) I think you've styled it perfectly here, letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. It's a keeper.ReplyDelete
Vizzini is just too cute!!ReplyDelete
I LOVED WKRP!!! "As God is my witness, I thought turkey's could fly" Johnny Fever, Jennifer, Venus, LES!!! Awesome show!!
I loved the jacket the first time you wore it and even more now-i think "toning" it down with more neutrals really let's it shine in all of its "Tarlek" glory!!
I don't remember the show but i do remember the last time you wore that hot skirt. I think you look amazing in it.ReplyDelete
I can actually imagine Vizzini going through your bag... does he like make up ? I'm aware he's a cat but my dogs love lipstick.
