silhouette and proportion play


















Today I really felt like going for an elongated silhouette, soft colors, lots of layers, socks and chunky heels. I love "funny" proportions in clothing... :)

I'm wearing about three vintage slips on top of each-other, a peachy oversized mohair jumper dress I found in a consignment store (Tokio7, east village, NY) a vintage (?) ruffle coat from Beacon's Closet (Brooklyn, NY) and Chloe chunky platforms (also from Tokio7)


I came home and heard the news about Alexander McQueen, I'm so devastated, to me, he was one of the few designers that gave Fashion a pulse, I always completely indulged in the visuals of his creations... :(

You are always so creative and imaginative when it comes to putting together an outfit. I never leave your blog bored or unispired ;-)

As always I absolutely adore your color palette here - so soft and powdery. The play with the proportions works out perfectly here. Not many could pull this look of but you do! The long dress/pullover looks great with the lace peeking out from underneath. Reminds me of Japanese streetstyle ^o^

Love, Liesbeth

Suzanne said...

Respect for the fact that you're walking in the snow with heels!!
I love heels but since it's been snowing all these weeks in the Netherlands, it's hard to wear them outside. I've already slipped and fell once unfortunately!

o.m.g. the combination from that silky and soft underdress paired with this soft rose long jumper is awesome, really it is. it's a bit like this one stella mcccartney look, just longer...

You can not be more wonderful. I love mixing colors and socks with shoes. The dusty tones you feel great, you remind me of the summer Burberry collection 2011.
A muaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

ru.kurarin said...

I love the mix of prints and you made the florals really winter friendly.

Maybe cycle shorts will still be relevant and you could layer them under your cut-offs.
