Fashion Over Reason: You really got me now

You really got me now

I've become quite obsessed with the new direction Céline has taken under the reign of Phoebe. The new aesthetic is in complete symbiosis with my taste. I suppose i was subconsciously inspired by the SS10 collection because looking at this outfit, i can't help but seeing a Céline reference. I acquired this beige leather skirt at a clothing swap years ago and it's just been sitting in my closet for so long without ever having been worn. It was too big and i never got around to getting it tailored until a few weeks ago. Now it fits like a glove and i just want to wear it every day! Also, there's nothing sexier than sheer black nylons.




Top - H&M
Leather skirt - second hand
Tights - Random
Grey cardigan - Gap
Leather jacket - Mackage
Scarf - H&M
Bag - Cowboysbag

The skirt is amazing...I wish i could wear beige (without spilling things on it)
I can totally see the Céline reference and the stripes gives it a twist.

Hope you had a nice week-end!!!

I loved this outfit when i saw you in it live ;) and i love how you broke it down by layers for this shoot! amazing!! it's seriously SUCH a great look on you and the striped top/skirt combo is amazing!!! you look phenomenal! and OMGODDDD i just LOL'd reading your comment about Lauryn in my inbox: TOTAL loss to the music industry on the nut job front LOL!!!! too bad...i felt half-reluctant posting that song, because im half releuctant to support her crazy ways but at the same time that miseducation album was sooooooo good! i remember playing it 24.7 on the way to Cégèp with my friend, Laura. we were obsessed. those were the days...slacking at cegep lol...well not really cause i wanted to get out in two years, unlike most people, but i just remember like every day being sunny when i was there...even though it obv. wasnt sunny for two years lol but the metaphor is that it was such a great two years! ok im on a tangent here about cégèp haha.

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

love this look, what a great leather skirt!

PS my blog name comes from the old movie "Wizard of Oz" There is a song in the movie fairly well known called "lions, tigers and bears oh my." I am crazy about big cats too and have been a fan of animal print since I can remember. It is actually a long name but I preferred it over the 30 or so I was contemplating at the time. Have you ever seen "Wizard of Oz"?

Now that makes me think, I am going to post something about it, because I am sure others wonder the same thing.

That outfit makes your body look fab!!!! Nothing like having something taken in to fit perfectly. It is owning the look and not letting it own you!
