Modern Fashion Plate

This is my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by the 1886 fashion plate of Scandinavian magazine Freja. OK, I have to admit that I actually put this outfit together before Jen sent the inspiration, but this fit the inspiration so well that I decided to use it for SIA too. My plaid blazer and striped top (my “Edwardian shirt” may have been a better choice, but I’ve worn it a lot lately, so this would do too) mimic the white dress with plaid trims, while the pattern on my brown boots can be seen as an echo of the brown lace dress. I would love to be able to wear an actual 1880’s dress for this SIA, but this is a good, real-world interpretation of the inspiration, and I’m happy with it.

Don’t forget to check Jen’s blog on Wednesday for other outfits inspired by this fashion plate!

  1. I’ve said the same thing — I’d love to wear an actual 1880’s style dress as well. Just once. They look incredibly uncomfortable but so elegant.

    You and I had the same idea — striped top with jeans and boots. A nice imitation of the print.

    A great interpretation, Salazar. It works well for you!
    P.S. Sorry I’ve been absent lately. Busy making preparations for the upcoming holiday. Hope to get back to my own blog as well, once things settle down!
