Ugh, winter. I feel like I’m semi hibernating with the work, home, sleep routine. I’ve been doing a bit of crafting lately – but more on that later.
This shirt is almost like an Asian/Elizabethan fusion. It’s got a fusion collar, and nice flowy arms. It looks like it’s sequins, but it’s faux. Faux sequin print! I paired it up with my cigarette pants, and BAM! The black ribbon detailing rocks my world too.
This dress has been a bit of an orphan. I was feeling the wintery blah’s and decided to wear something I had neglected for a while that felt fun. I don’t think I’ve worn this much since I initially altered it while listening to the last book of Stieg Larsson’s trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
The dress was a bit tight, so I took out the side seams and inserted a black jersey panel on both sides, through the underams and sleeves. These vintage polyester dresses don’t have much give, and those ladies had small shoulder breadth. I find that I’ve always had a bit of trouble with shoulders and clothes though… so the additional fabric was necessary.
There was a bit of red in the pattern, so I jazzed this ensemble up with my red blazer, threw on a purple infinity scarf, and felt pretty, and professional, all day long. Take that winter!!
