As I've mentioned before, playing around in my closet and actually planning my outfits is one of my favourite things to do.
- Top - Lord & Taylor, consignment; last worn here in October 2018
- Skirt - Banana Republic Heritage, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in January for a quick walk to town
- Shoes - Entrance Room 502, Fluevog; last worn here in October with orange and pink
- Jacket (below) - Burberry, thrifted; purchased here for $44.99
- Coat (below) - L'Atiste, consignment, Vancouver; last seen here a couple of weeks ago
Except for a different skirt, this is the identical outfit to what I wore in October 2018 (here).
Clothing as armour!
I tried to do this new-to-me Burberry jacket with this outfit.
I don't mind that. I just have to make sure I work the proportions correctly (short, slim skirt or trousers).
Outerwear - good gravy, I love this coat.
- Leather gloves - Danier Leather
- Brooch - The Bay, c. 2001
- Cuff - Swarovski, consignment, gift from L
- Earrings - vintage fair
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
- Silver/crystal ring - Soul Flower
I love this outfit. It's a very classic look but the caped jumper gives it a quirky edge. I love those boots too; they look so cool and comfortable but also quirky. You have great legs!ReplyDelete
Well, thank you so much, Vronni!Delete
I, just like you love to play with my wardrobe. And, I can tell you that this skirt is amazing I loved this animal print.
Oooh, a super hero in shiny blue leopard works for me too! LiseReplyDelete
Ha, thank you, Lise!Delete
I love playing around with the items in my wardrobe too. It's total relaxation for me to try things out and assemble possible outfits, complete with the right accessories. And I agree that sometimes you need clothing as armour. Enter the superwoman jumper, which looks wonderful with the shiny leopard skirt. I'm sure the Burberry babydoll jacket will fit in with your Summer wardrobe, and will be something to look forward to wearing then. Your coat is awesome! xxxReplyDelete
It really is relaxing, isn't it, Ann? And I don't mind having outfits like this to fall back on when I haven't done that kind of planning. Armour is often needed, and this top works perfectly.Delete
Yeah, the jacket was just not right, but it'll be awesome in spring. Thank you!
Love the coat and cape top. What a good pieces. The shoes are stellar as always.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Greetje!Delete
You do look like a superhero in that amazing cape top and the colour is fabulous. xxxReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Vix!Delete
Oh I love it the jacketReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Sakuranko!Delete
What a great outfit! Awesome sparkly bling and the top with the cape is awesome! I love a pair of shoes that make you wanna stomp around with authority...usually my Doc Marten boots.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Cheryene! I love my Docs for that reason too!Delete
Totally superheroin and totally fabulous!, I love your purple shoes everytime I see them!, love them with the purple tights and the fab top-cape, so gorgeous! and you rock your leopard skirt!ReplyDelete
Shoes that make you want to stomp around with authority are Particularly Stunning!
Thank you so much, Monica! This is a tried-and-true favourite combination of mine. Thanks!Delete
Oooo, I love the caped sweater with the leopard print skirt. Stompey boots are the best.ReplyDelete
Thank you! It's actually a blouse - fine woven polyester. Agreed, stomp stomp!Delete
The cape blouse is soo cool. I tried on something similar sometime ago but it was restraining and I chose not to go for it.ReplyDelete
Yeah, this one is good for movement - and it keeps my arms warm too!Delete
