So you all get sort of a twofer: pile on trends outfit, and the Jolt blazer over said outfit.
I searched through some clickbait sites for trends, which yielded contradictory and confusing results, and came up with three I could do: punk, animal print, and pink coat. Let's toss in lace because that's still in since Chanel revived it, right? Oh, and layers. That's a Thing.
|I feel kinda 80s|
Pink leather coat: Vera pelle (thrifted)
Long moto vest: twentyone (thrifted)
Blue leopard bustier: Olé Olé (eBay)
Denim miniskirt: h&g (thrifted)
Fingerless lace gloves: River Island (old)
Bandage leggings: none (eBay)
OMG clown shoes: Candie's (thrifted)
There's a lot going on here, but I wanted a punk outfit that was reasonably warm on its own. Yes, that's a blue leopard fake bustier. It doesn't actually compress or anything, as it's smocked in back. It has built in pads, is made of stretchy material, and is super comfortable. I have an awful lot of shirts that look like corsets for someone who has zero interest in squashing her organs.
My fake 80s punk band is still named Subtle Blue Leopard.
It's raining today, so my new-to-me pink leather coat by Vera pelle was perfect. It has a detachable hood! It's pink! I felt it was a bit of a risk when I bought it half-off at the thrift store, but I like it more and more. I also like that the black moto/biker vest zips up to keep the look from getting too busy when I put on the coat.
|Yarr. Thar be bling here.|
|Feeling really 80s, now|
Thing is, I think the blazer wants a bright shirt to layer under it, and I don't own any plain ones in bright colors. It's a hole in my wardrobe I'm trying to rectify. In the meantime, I realize looking at the photos the blazer doesn't hit me at the best spot in the waist. I'm v-shaped, so it's best if I get things that narrow all the way through the natural waist, like my Guess blazer. This will be a donate.
