Pseu, I continue to love your Polyvore's! You have a knack for translating the runway into real life.Love that camel and olive mix with a little animal print thrown in. I have a camel coat (not as stylish as your pick but in my size) and a leopard print cardi, now I just need to find some slim cut pants in olive drab in size 14. Wish me luck!
I have, despite my distant location, had the chance to view Dries van Noten pieces in person. I know, they look great. I have even had some. I only wish that these clothes were of higher quality, as the price is highish. Naturally I am disappointed, that these clothes are made in countries of cheap labor. The shoes and bags look nice, but the leather used is not to my liking.I like your polyvore, Deja : )
laurieann - Here you go, these are the pair I have. Go up to size 18 in the color "moss" which is more olive than it looks online.http://tinyurl.com/29mb55ror these: http://tinyurl.com/2cu655l also in moss.metscan - that's really a shame about the quality of DVN. Hardly anyone here carries them. But this is a look that's so easy to translate!
You are SOOOO ready for Paris!
Oh, that is gorgeous!!! I think I'd wear every single one of your Casual Vendredi outfits. Can you dress me for NY please?
Your leopard boots are TDF! I like the flow of the Dries pant better than the tighter one, certainly for my shape. I have a few pieces and find the quality very acceptable.
I love the entire outfit!
materfamilias - I live in an eternal state of Paris-readiness. But at least we now have dates to count down to! (May 2011!)Tiffany - oh, that would be so much fun! If you want to send me descriptions of what you're thinking of taking, I can do some Polyvore's for you.Duchesse - I agree about the pants. The NYDJ pair I have and referred laurieann to are actually a little bit roomier in the leg than the ones I've shown.Wendy B - they are my faves! Belle de Ville - this is such an easy look to put together and wear. But the jewelry takes it up another notch I think. ;-)
Speaking of quality.. In the summer I bought a simple, maybe a somewhat over long, long sleeved T by Isabel Marant. Oh, it looked so good. After a two or so wears, it turned out to be a sack! I am very disappointed. A ( well ) known brand does not always mean good quality. I know it now.
Love that combo. I'm not sure those colors work for me, but I do love them together.
Love anything leopard.....Have a wonderful weekend, xv.
Thank you Pseu. I'm going to order a pair in the moss. They look very versatile.
The pants in the runway photo are too baggy in the crotch for me! The upper thigh area isn't anyplace I want extra fabric or an extreme cut drawing the eye -- there's plenty of me there already for the eye to view. I like the colors. Usually I've reserved that olive green for summer time/vacation wear -- my park service fallback.
I've fallen in love with a pair of Sperry leopard print loafers I saw in a Vogue ad, but I can't find them anywhere! Not in the stores, not on their website, not on Zappos or Nordstrom...what is the deal, Sperry???????
This is one of the runway looks I loved and am copying. I just need to get the sleeveless camel jacket on my worktable sewn up and lose a couple of pounds to fit into olive pants from a few years ago. I have a scarf from a while back, too (love to shop my closet!), but I won't have the fabulous jewelry from Beladora. And I've not decided whether to wear my short black boots or my leopard print flats.
Love-love-love: Leopard and Fleur all in one outfit. Brilliant!
oo oo oo oo oo oooo ooh!oo!love that combo!
