It was quite confusing to explain and photograph this outfit, because it doesn’t really make sense. I have a strange way of re-interpreting garments. If you’re wondering why that skirt print looks familiar it’s because in “Running rings around neon” I wore the matching blouse. It turned out to be a good thing that this skirt is double my waist size, with a bit of folding, draping and safety pins it proved to turn out nicely. The pleats actually lend themselves really really well to draping like this, they hold their shape and fold wonderfully. There were so many ways I could wear this skirt, as a one shouldered dress, a large scarf, the possibilities are astounding.
I also had fun playing with this awesome paneled vintage blazer I had laying around. It is made out of a fabric similar to those used in suiting so it hangs really nicely. I draped it over my shoulders (like some other bloggers do, you know – wearing the jacket without your arms in the sleeves), took the bottom of it and folded it up and underneath, pulled the shoulder pads up onto my shoulders so it sat properly and then took the sleeves and tied them around the back so it stayed put. Oh and I made sure the wonderful collar was sitting properly too (it didn’t photograph very well, probably because it’s black and my little point-and-shoot isn’t that advanced.)
