It’s been a long while since my last outfit post! As such, I figured it was appropriate to post an outfit with some stuff I bought maybe a year ago. I kind of never got the opportunity to wear this playsuit. It is so beautiful, with thick jacquard fabric and boning in the torso–I absolutely love it but it always seemed a touch too formal for every occasion I went to, or not formal enough. On a recent date night to the movies with a man with a penchant for silk-blend trousers, I finally had my chance. I classed it up a bit with a structured blazer and tights, and rocked this look in my glasses.
I wear my glasses in so many of these outfits and never feature them in my photos. Why? Because they mess with my face. I look great in person in glasses, but there’s just something that about them that doesn’t photograph very well. Reflections and whatnot. All things considered, I’d rather not have glasses at all, and I actually have to resist the urge to throw up in my mouth a little whenever I see today’s hipsters walking about wearing those utterly fake, oversize spectacles in some cringe-worthy attempt to be ironic. They don’t look cool, guys, put them away if your vision is 20/20.
Anyways, I’ve been wanting to get that off my chest for a while, so without further ado, here is the rundown:
ASOS Bandeau Playsuit in Copper Jacquard – ASOS, $15 (Such a good buy, with an extra 15% off! Back when the Aussie dollar was stronger of course..)
Black Work Blazer – Target, $29
Gold Tassel Belt – Forever New, $6.50 (Crap, I think I added an extra 50c onto that price somehow)
Sheer Tights – Target, 25c
Black Kidskin Leather Heels – Mascotte, $40 (Actually now that I think back, I remember they were really $39.. oh well, close enough)
In addition to all that, I’d just like everyone to know that those shoes are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. Mascotte gets a big, frugalistic thumbs-up from me, with really good quality, classic styles and very frequent sales, eek!
They also happen to stock the most amazing men’s shoes as well. Actual round-toed men’s shoes. None of that chisel-toed, square-toed pointy-toed crap you’ll find in YD, Roger David, etc. I actually have yet to find a man who appreciates the beauty of a nice round-toed brogue, but I’m sure keeping my eyes peeled..
