Told you you’d be seeing more of this jacket. I snatched this up from my mom last time I went home, it’s a gorge vintage fringed jacket she got in Wyoming at a local shop two decades ago. I also scored that Moschino patent belt (+ a black one) which I remember seeing her wear before I was even able to take my first steps. Ok I’m exaggerating, but you get my point. I’m wearing J Brand jeans in the Japanese twill and Beau Coops booties (previously seen here). The paisley foulard is actually a men’s scarf I found at some sample sale a couple years back and the evil eye necklace is from a shop in Beirut called Sunflowers, mentioned here.
I was feeling rather ladylike this weekend, so I decided to wear this new floral, midi skirt I recently snatched from a vintage shop in Milan.
It’s very wooly, probably because it says 100% WOOL on the washed out tag inside…(genius) Anyways, it’s perfect for this sudden cold front Russia kindly brought to us these past few days. And..it’s got pockets! The scarf was also a victim of the snatching episode at the vintage shop.
I didn’t want to make the outfit too girly-like, so I wore it with this military-inspired velvet blazer I own to make it less ‘happy girl’ and a bit more aggressive and current. Then I opted for a simple longsleeve tee to give it a carefree twist + ankle booties. I decided to throw on a belt as well, cause I wanted to hike up my skirt a little more (what’s up Dave Matthews!) so the wavy-like details on my booties would show.
Midi skirt and scarf are both vintage, black velvet blazer is Marc Jacobs. Longsleeve tee is from Urban Outfitters.
Charlotte Ronson booties and Asos socks.
Giant Pompon Balenciaga bag and raccoon tail is from when I was 10, no kidding.
Found this ikat midi skirt at a vintage shop at the Eolian Islands in Sicily… it’s amazing the things you can find in the most random places! I’m obsessed with it and the color combination is just stunning, don’t you think?
I wore this during a night out in Venice last week, thank God I opted for this skirt + a light silk top and had dinner outdoors–it was beyond humid that night!
