I’m On Your Back

September 26, 2012

Blazer c/o Shoppalu, American Apparel skirt, T c/o Gap, Rebecca Minkoff bag,
cuff c/o Lia Sophia, ring & bracelet c/o Poshlocket, necklace c/o Keltie Leanne, Michael Kors heels
This week’s FASHION Magazine Style Panel is all about boxy silhouettes and how to make them work. Now if there’s one thing that I love, it’s a big, menswear-inspired piece: be it a chunky fisherman sweater or a huge tweed blazer (like this Shoppalu number I have on here), I’ll always make an excuse to wear an oversized something-or-other. As usual, the trick just lies in striking a balance: mix one part boxy with one part either streamlined or femme and you’re set!

Soooo I’m thinking of changing up some things over the next couple of weeks and adding in a few new features, maybe including an outfit video component or more filmed beauty/fitness tutorials. Any thoughts or feedback before I start posting?

Happy Wednesday my lovelies!

    Love the tweed blazer on you! And your purse is gorgeous. I actually just bought a Rebecca Minkoff and I am in love with her handbags now : )

    It's funny that you mix things I'd never imagine together and yet find utterly pretty on you.

    I'd love to see some videos on the blog! And I really like the way you did the boxy silhouette – it can be a tough thing to pull off well and you nailed it.

    Your skirt is so lovely. The jacket is the center piece of this outfit, it looks great.

    LOVE oversized everything this time of year. It's so cozy to put on a big sweater, belt it and be done. -Heidi

    I think video stuff would be great! And you totally rocked the boxy shape here. There is a very cool, classic vintage vibe to this outfit.

    I love that you can pull off the good menswear. I wish I could lean my style a little more towards that but I don't think it would work so well on me.

    Okay…you are so pretty! Love this jacket. I wish I could pull something like this off. I have tried, but it always ends up looking weird. Anyway…you look gorgeous and you have a darling blog! 🙂

    I love this boyish jacket with the super sweet skirt. Such a great combo 🙂
