socks and platforms















Still freaking cold :(

I have been on a massive sock hunt lately, looking all over the place for knee high socks or over-knee's that I can slouch down, getting ready for Spring but decided to play with it already :) Honestly I haven't found any exiting socks yet, these are old H&M socks, I was googling Missoni, hoping they would have some jaw dropping ones but.. nope.. not what I'm looking for... :(

I made the coat when I was still in Art-School (Fashion) for one of my collections inspired by the movie "Metropolis" (Fritz Lang), some other designs are up here (from a different collection, though) and I'm still busy making a bunch of skirts...

H&M top, Aldo shoes, H&M socks, woolen tracksuit trousers from Humanoid, Scarf Marc Jacobs

lewis said...

you are so cute and your fashion is amazing and makes me smile always.
do you know any tricks for keeping cut off tights from falling down? i love the look of the tights cut off at the top of thigh and slouched down a little bit but with every step they fall down more, eventually turning into knee highs. i havent figured out a way to keep them up besides garter belts but that produces a completely different look than simply just tights.

Ash said...

I have been trying to find socks also. Not as easy as one would think is it?

Jen said...

i love this outfit of yours so much! everything about it is perfect and you pull off these trousers so well. and i can't believe you made that coat! it looks so chic and expensive. you did such a great job on it, wanna make me one too? :P

PUNKIE said...

oh... my dear god! another super outfit! it's incredible how versatile you are, even if you choose almost the same color palette.
stunning, stunning, stunning!

Anna-Maria said...

Wow, the jacket is beautifully crafted! I love the color scheme here, isn't it "mauve" or something? The weather looks much nicer over there, I wish we had no snow here - I hate posing inside all the time. :D

Talia said...

Karoline said...

Really, I did not know you where a designer?

I am so in love with the sock/platform trend, but its so freaking cold and icy here in Norway, all I can wear is massive boots, or else I just stumble around.

chesca said...

gorgeous outfit post!
the shoes with the socks look amazing :)

johanna said...

i'm in the sock hunters' team. still not satisfied.

this outfit is great. it has this ancient touch (the backround must be a part of the cause, it's dreamy), but with yet so modern combinations. the tones are so soft and aaaahh. awesome.

Emilie said...

FAB!
Love the socks with the shoes!

Jen said...

If I want to slouch down socks, I usually get a cheap pair of tights and cut them up, they slouch a treat!

I didnt know u were a designer, i read the post from 9th april and now i start to understand a lot of things about you and your art sensitivity for clothes. U are not like most bloggers, u are not pretentious or simple, this is quite obvious just seeing the way u dress and express. I think u should pursue your dreams and keep designing cause u have a real talent, and belive me there are not a lot of talented people in the fashion industry nowadays. Big kiss :P

Lauri said...

Hi Cocorosa!
I love your looks! I landes into your blog from Style Copycat.

I can't help drop you a comment about all that weight issue... I've been skinny all my life (5ft5in tall and 99 pds) always very healthy!! and had to deal with comments like that all my life. Until turned 30, then my body started to change slowly. I'm 40 now, and 110 pds. Still skinny but curvy in some ways! I definitely love my body as it is, no surgery needed!

Be proud of yourself, be confident, you are beautiful!! Remember: when you turn 40 as I am now, all that envy people will envy you even more!

I invite you to visit my blogs.

big hug!
