Happy Monday! Today's outfit probably won't come as a huge shock - I was inspired by some of my recent Flashbacks.
- Blazer: Vivienne Westwood Red Label, thrifted; last seen here in January with punk plaid and roses
- Shirt - J. Crew, thrifted; last seen here in April for some Men In Black weekend silliness
- Trousers - J. Crew, thrifted; purchased here for $34.99
- Shoes - Truths Pilgrim, Fluevog; last seen here in September for a shopping expedition
- Sleeveless coat (below) - Only, thrifted; last worn here a couple of weeks ago
I also took the opportunity to wear my Vivienne Westwood grey wool blazer - and we'll have a wee Flashback on that in a bit.
It's a longer blazer, but I adore the classic cut of it - the shoulders are cut really well too.
Today's the first time wearing these trousers, and yes, they are a titch large on me, but I wouldn't alter them as they have no stretch.
Jacket off - I didn't wear it at all like this, but I thought you might like to see the trousers better.
Masked up - this is a pretty red and white paisley one of Mom's.
- Hat - vintage, thrifted
- Gloves - Parkhurst
- Bowtie - John Comfort for Harry Rosen, vintage, thrifted
- Earrings - thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
Flashback: Vivienne Westwood Red Label Grey Wool Blazer
I lucked out at Flavour Upstairs in November 2017 (here), scoring a Red Label blazer by Vivienne Westwood.
Her Red Label line was a sister line to the main "Vivienne Westwood" line, and ran from February 1999 to 2016.
Even secondhand, her Red Label items run from a couple hundred dollars into the several-hundred-dollar range, so you can imagine my delight at finding this for only $27.99!
I first wore it shortly after my purchase, in November 2017.
I'm all "Business on the top; party on the bottom" with this outfit. We saw the shoes in Flashback here.
I did a bit of a funky look with another designer piece in January 2018, this L'Wren Scott blouse.
We just saw these trousers in a Flashback here, and those red shoes here.
I liked this shiny blue leopard skirt with the blazer; I paired them again in November 2018.
This is a very "profesh" look for me, from October 2019. However, if you look carefully, you'll see that my lapel has a bug pin and a snake brooch on it. I'm still spooky!
And here is the last time I wore the blazer, in January 2020.
Mathy stuff: I'm on my 7th wearing of this jacket, bringing us to $4.00 per wear. As long as the moths don't feast on it, I have plenty more wearings in it. I should probably invest in some moth balls!
