I've longtime been a fan of "menswear" for women whether its a tailored suit, trouser pants, bow tie, or top hat. During one of my classic giant thrift hauls I spotted this military inspired blazer by Vanessa Bruno founder of the french fashion house Emanuelle Khan. I'm still in awe of owning this beautifully tailored piece in perfect condition and the most classic shade of grey wool.
I paired the scarf and blazer with one of my (Style.) staples this winter, a black sheer button up dress with silk collar by Jonathan Saunders for Target. The silk ribbon detail runs up the center, across the belt-line, and on the cuffs. It looks professional for day and goth school-girl for night...the much needed combo that every girl tries to pull off...right?
Can't wait to lighten the look for spring and work it with my snake print blouse (last seen here) and newly thrifted white trousers via Spring 2011 snake print inspiration Thakoon, Derek Lam, Roberto Cavalli, and Lanvin Resort 2011 collection. Guess I'll have to save that outfit for another post...
