All Suited Up

1.24.2012


3.1 Phillip Lim grecian tank top (similar look here)
Wide-leg pant from Urban Outfitters (similar style here)
H&M cropped blazer
Zara snood
Marc Jacobs clutch
14th & Union grey suede booties (similar shoe here)
Target studded belt

Never having been a girl with 'curves,' I've always gravitated towards androgynous clothing, but even that didn't stop me from asking Micol while we were shooting, 'Is this outfit too butch?'

She of course answered no.

Whether or not she was lying, I'll never know, (Micol: Never!) but I must say there's something about working an oversized blazer, a pair of wide-leg pants, a tuxedo shirt, or your own version of a power suit that makes you feel like you can take on the world. Instead, we took on a few cocktails...at Dram, conveniently located across from my apt.

  12. I don't think you are too butch! I think you are stylishly glamorous! I know you are dressed up and all, but this kind of outfit just seems like it would be comfortable to wear even though it is dressy on the outside!
    Love it!
