A little late tonight, as I was out for dinner with my long-time bestie, Janet, for a bit in honour of both of our recent birthdays. I had to wear something special.
- Blouse - Peter Nygard, thrifted; purchased here for $6.00
- Leather pants - Gap, 2000, vintage store; last seen here (2nd outfit) in February with the yeti jacket
- Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last worn here in September with power colour red
- Leather trench (below) - vintage 70s, thrifted
Oh, the leather jeans are going nowhere, don't you worry yourself about that! I love these so much.
My outerwear was way too freakin' hot today. Where is the cold weather? I am ready for it!
The gloves (Parkhurst) and scarf (vintage Pierre Balmain, thrifted) were unnecessary, as was the hat - it didn't even rain.
I liked how the earrings went with the blouse.
- Earrings - thrifted
- Ring - late 90s
So, aside from a light itch and fit issues with the blouse, the other reason it's not lasting with me is that it ripped. Aw, so sad!
I mentioned back on the day that I bought that very blouse, that I'd found a grey wool men's coat for L, but the sleeves were too short. This is the coat.
A bit of searching around [Ukranian eBay??] reveals that this is from the 80s - the brand is "borgeoiis menswear" - and that the content is indeed wool and cashmere. Hurray! I knew I could trust my sense of touch!
|It's a 32/39...whatever that means.|
This is why I had to buy it, even though I knew it probably wouldn't fit L.
Sorry, Nick, I've decided to keep it for myself, even if it does up backwards (heh).
