Outfit | Bell Bottom Blues

 
Faux Fur Coat C/O Chicwish | Blouse from Suzy Shier | Bell Bottom Jeans C/O Shopbop | Thrifted Cowboy Boots

Since skinny jeans made a comeback years ago, I had worn them almost exclusively. Until earlier this year, that is. I've been broadening my horizons. Although, that seems more than a little silly to say when we're talking about something as superficial as what kind of jeans to wear. Still, last summer I started with a pair of low rise flared jeans from a Sidney thrift shop that cost me $1. Now, as the weather gets colder, I've been favouring this pair of dark wash Blank Denim high waisted jeans.

For this look, I paired them with a lightweight blouse from Suzy Shier and an old pair of cowboy boots I bought from a nearby thrift shop. The faux fur coat is from Chicwish's A/W line last year.

Outfit | Take Two


Fringed Poncho C/O Shopbop | Turtleneck C/O Shopbop | Mini Skirt from Forever 21 | Secret Tights | Steve Madden Pumps

I had the 1960s in mind when I was putting this outfit together, so I opted for a classic black turtleneck paired with a black mini skirt and black tights and heels. The fringed poncho is the same one featured in last week's outfit post. I've really been loving it lately, especially because where I live is quite cold and it's brilliant for just wearing round the house, as well as out and about. Just a really simple and classic kind of look. And quite comfortable, as well!

Crossing Lines


Bodysuit C/O Shopbop | Thrifted Leather Belt | Fishnet Tights from ASOS

If you happen to follow my Instagram, it may not be entirely surprising for me to admit I've become slightly obsessed with fishnet tights. Truthfully though, they've always been one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to fashion. Not being very keen on many of the ways they've been styled in recent times, I tend to gravitate towards how they were styled in 50s and 60s. Think Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, rather than 80s music video girls. And to be fair, I haven't incorporated them into many outfits suitable for wear out and about. Working on it, though.

Paired with a jersey bodysuit from Shopbop and a vintage leather belt, I was trying for a retro dance-class vibe here. And what's more simple than a sleeveless black bodysuit? This one is a little loose around the waist, hence the belt, but that's hardly a negative. In my opinion, it makes it much more flattering than if it were skin tight, especially when paired with a form-fitting skirt or high waisted jeans for everyday wear.

A Pop of Pink

 

The Penelope bra and panty set by Agent Provocateur's l'Agent line is made of vibrant soft jersey and mesh and walks the line of sexy vs. girly perfectly.

I think I've previously mentioned my preference of classic colours for lingerie. Black, cream, white, and so on make up the majority of my little collection. I just find them the most flattering. And typically I'm not very keen on wearing pink. I don't think I own any pink clothing outside of an old multicoloured sequinned mini-dress. So, it's safe to say I wouldn't typically seek out pink lingerie. But while browsing Shopbop's lingerie section recently, something about this set quickly caught my eye. It's not a set I would normally go for and I couldn't quite put my finger on what I liked about it, I was just purely drawn to it in some way. This seems to be a recurring theme in my life lately, in matters more meaningful than just picking out something new to wear underneath my clothes.

Now, I don't see myself adding a fuchsia cocktail dress or baby pink coat to my wardrobe anytime soon, I'd still find that all a bit much. Wearing a pretty bright pink lingerie hidden underneath an all black outfit, on the other hand...

Alternatively, underneath a slightly grungy jeans and jean jacket sort of outfit. I'm all about interesting contrasts.
