Cape-Blouse and Space Pants

I didn't feel like making much of an effort last night when I was planning my outfit, so I did a near-copy of an outfit I've worn before.
 I changed the shoes and the accessories, but otherwise, same as here in March 2018.

  • Cape blouse - Lord & Taylor, consignment; last seen here in October 2018 with purple and another cape!
  • Leather pants - Free People, Portland; last worn here in September 2018 for the Vintage Expo (Space Leopard!)
  • Shoes - Down to Earth Hadfield, Fluevog men's; last seen here hanging with my coworker in January
  • Coat (below) - Zara, gift from Dominique; last worn here last week

Sorry about the crappy colour - it's been very bright in the mornings lately.
 I enjoyed swooshing my cape-blouse about the office today. It's a cape! It's a blouse! It's a cape-blouse!

The leather metallic Space Pants (made from real space cows) always elicit "Whoa!" reactions from my coworkers.
 They get more comfy every time I wear them.

I tend to slouch around when I talk, hands in pockets, leaning on something, standing like this.
 I move around a lot. I'm fidgety. L says I'm "fussing about."

Outerwear - brrr, it's too darned cold out.
I picked style over warmth with today's coat.

  • Fur scarf - thrifted
  • Gloves - Club Monaco, consignment

The stuff:
 I love my floral brogues. They are marvelously broken-in now, like slippers.

Copper bling:
I see myself in the balls!

  • Ball necklace/cuff - vintage 70s, vintage expo
  • Cuff - Renoir, vintage 60s, Grandma J's
  • Earrings - vintage expo
  • Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes


  1. Hello my darling, how lovely to be back on the ranch with you. I've missed your bright and breezy chat and of course the style inspo you share with us all. My niece has a cape blouse too and I seem to feel I'm letting the side down by not having one - yours is terribly elegant! And I daren't even start droning on about those gold leather trousers as it will only turning into one of my begging letters. I love them, you love, we all love them, there, that's all I can do!
    Is so, so good to see you again. Thanks for visiting me while I've been away on my international-jet-setting-fabulous-modelling-tour xxx

    1. Great to catch up with you, Anna! I like the cape-blouse look but this one is tricky to style. The leather trousers are mine, you - behave! ;-P

      Great to see you, my dear!

  2. "Whoa" indeed, your gold pants are so special and unique!
    I'd love to have you as a coworker and talk about clothes all the time. X

    1. I know, same here, Jess! I love chatting about my clothes. Thank you!

  3. What an outfit - you're my favourite superhero in that epic get-up! xxx

  4. Cute!!! What do space cows say???
    Lol I had to...

  5. That outfit is fabulous enough to be worn and featured twice! At least! Both the cape/blouse and the metallic pants make you look like a superheroine. Did you feel like one too? I'm also loving your bling and floral brogues! xxx

    1. I agree! Thank you, Ann! It definitely has that superhero vibe.

  6. You look very cool - i love that picture with your hands in the pockets, very stylish.

  7. This just goes to show you how effortlessly chic you are. These metallic leather pants and a cape sweater are divinely curated. That you can pull these things out of your closet, speaks to your great shopping skills and your extraordinary eye for fashion and art.
    I agree with another of your points. Two of them in fact. One is that I love to slouch and keep my hands in my pockets as you do. The second is that it is so so cold !


  8. That is a very good outfit. The space trousers make it different, the cape blouse looks very swishy/swooshy - always a bonus! I do love those floral brogues; I think they'd look good with anything and the copper bling is just fab!

    That's one of my favourite coats of your's; sorry to hear your weather has warmed up. Ours has cooled today and we've had rain - yikes!

    1. Thanks so much, Vronni! It's a very cool coat, although the front of it is getting fuzzy from my bag (Zara, arg, such poor quality).

  9. Hasn't warmed up I meant to say. If it had you wouldn't be wearing that fab coat would you? Doh!

    1. Yes, and no! My inner temperatures are very out of whack right now!

  10. Space Cow Pants!!! Nothing like metallic leather pants to brighten one's day. I like the cape blouse but I can see that it would be a challenge to style. It works very well with the gold pants, and it does give you a superhero vibe which we can all use once in a while.

    1. Exactly! I will probably keep the blouse for a little while longer, but we'll see. Thank you so much - I'm my own superhero!
