Geek Chic

4.04.2013


Mango floral dress (we love this one too), Forever 21 blouse with perforated collar (available here), Milly metallic double-breasted jacket (check out this similar steal), Chanel bag (last worn here), Pour La Victoire shoes, Etam glasses (similar here). 




If this look seems a bit out-of-the-ordinary for The Marcy Stop, it's because it is. But what's fashion for, if not to try out new wardrobe combinations and have fun with it?

Here, I was inspired by look #7 from Rebecca Minkoff's Fall 2013 show. I've never layered a low-cut dress over a button-up blouse before, but it seemed like a great idea and a novel way to put some of your spring/summer wardrobe to use in the cold.

Micol HATED this outfit when I first put it on (ok, I admit, I stole the coat from her closet)... and then bit by bit, it began to grow on her. I also felt a bit like a librarian in it. But I think the funky and bright accessories helped offset that a little bit... or maybe not.

  7. I like your outfit. It's nice to approach fashion and dressing as a game. I do it too and I wear some times clothes that don't feel like me but I like the change. It's refreshing.
