This shirt is a little more sparkly (well, a lot more sparkly) than I usually wear, but it was on sale, so I thought I’d give it a try. The only two setbacks are 1) it’s hand-wash only due to the fragile sequins, and 2) if it’s sunny out, I would essentially turn into a walking disco ball and wreak havoc on any oncoming traffic. Still, I’m keeping it, because it’s fun, and apparently silver is one of the trends for this fall. When the weather is cooler, I can try pairing it with a blazer or my leather jacket, to tame the sparkle a bit.
This is the last of my work outfits from the semester. I almost didn’t post this because I wasn’t wild about the outfit, but I’m running out of material to post, so I figure beggars can’t be choosers. See, I was going for this kind of loose silhouette I see on so many Japanese fashion blogs, but I don’t think I pulled it off with my body type. I guess I’ll just stick to the more classic “loose + fitted” silhouette from now on.
This is my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Picasso’s “Two Acrobats with a Dog”. I’m the furthest thing away from an acrobat as you can imagine, hence the title. As for the dog, I couldn’t get mine to pose properly, so I had to make do with a photo of her from the back (maybe she’s camera shy.)
The outfit is self-explanatory, as you can see – blue, gray, and plaid in place of the harlequin pattern. I also tried to mimic the same pattern in my triangle necklace. I was only a little bummed out when I realized that I’d forgotten about the touch of tan/yellow in the painting. My tan oxford heels would have been perfect… but then again there are black diamonds in the harlequin pattern too, so maybe my black pumps aren’t so bad after all.
If you haven’t sent me your outfit photos, you still have until tomorrow. Otherwise, remember to come back on Wednesday for the full round-up. See ya!
This is outfit #2 for SIA, inspired by this illustration of a Memorial Day poppy. It’s actually my original outfit, but I wasn’t too happy with it when I put it together. The pants are OK, but I don’t have any bright orange piece in my closet that can match the poppy in the illustration and I had to make do with this peach T-shirt. I figure the design on the shirt can also be a nod to the swirling lines of the poppy itself. It may not be the perfect SIA outfit, but it’s still a pretty good outfit on its own, so I decided to give it a chance.
