You And I’ve Got What It Takes To Make It

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 7:00 pm

I’ve been thinking about mixing classic or simple pieces with one to two special items.  This outfit may be a prelude of what’s to come; everything is pretty basic, solid neutral colors but then I threw in the bowler and a statement necklace.  Of course the majority of my wardrobe is special items so the basics in my wardrobe need to be reevaluated so I can see exactly where I stand.  Before I even look through I know I’m missing cigarette pants, skinny jeans and oversized t-shirts.  On and I definitely need a pair of structured and comfortable water resistant boots.

Wool Vest, The Limited. Thrifted Grey Tee Shirt, Bowler and Gold Necklace. Bluenotes Eyelet Skirt. Vintage Kick Ass Boots.

    This is a great look on you! I am like you, in that, I have more crazy things than basics too. I have been working on it since I started this job though since i have to wear black and grey, it has helped a lot.

    I’m definitely the opposite – I need more special, unique pieces! I tend to play it safe and choose classic shapes and classic colors more often than not. Sigh.

    First, I dearly, dearly love that song. I take great pride in being able to whistle the whole intro. And second, I love this outfit! I desperately need a necklace like that!

    I LOVE this sort of dandy-esque, Westerny look. LOVE. IT.

    That vest is fantastic, and I’ve never seen anything else quite like that necklace. Fantastic!

    While it is lacking in color, I still like this outfit. There is something very hipster about it, but without being overly trendy.

    Love the bowler, it is so cool! Somehow GnR’s Patience seems to be the perfect backdrop music for this outfit! 🙂

    I think gray T shirts are one of the most essential wardrobe pieces ever. I have several.
