I'm a huge fan of suiting pieces, even though I have very few actual suits in my closet right now. Here's my shot at combining two tweeds to make their own pseudo-suit.
- Jacket - Dex, consignment; purchased yesterday here for $28.99
- Sweater - Gap, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) for tea at the Abkhazi Gardens in April
- Skirt - J. Crew, thrifted; first worn here with more neon yellow in March
- Shoes - Bebe Effortless, Fluevog; last seen here in April with black leather pants
I was inspired by seeing a Chanel black tweed pouffy skirt in Turnabout yesterday (I really wanted it, but not for $500+!!), so played up this Chanel-inspired jacket with even more tweed.
I loved this jacket - like Vizzini, I attacked it with scissors, and trimmed all the extra-long threads. I shed a few threads throughout the day as well.
The jacket doesn't do up at all, so I just went with a plain white sweater underneath to ground it.
But up close, they are even better.
- Flower pin - Le Chateau
- Earrings - Aldo
Bigass flower, and bigass pearls. Nothing else needed!
