More Black and Blue and White

 
I try occasionally to move outside my comfort zone.
 

 
 
I rarely wear blue, but this color seemed very compelling to me, and I loved the contrast seaming. Plus, it’s cotton velvet. Very soft.

It can’t all be classic jackets, can it? I bought this on-line and thought the white was shearling trim, but it turns out to be exposed, frayed seams. Regardless, I like the graphic effect.

 
 
 
But wait, there’s more. The back is a different fabric than the front!
Huh; fancy that

I’ve always had a soft spot for harlequins! But do I want to dress like one?
 
Now I am thinking of The Nutcraker, which leads to thoughts of . . .
 
Many years ago, I crossed paths with Mikhail Baryshnikov in one of the foyers at the Kennedy Center. He was wearing a tuxedo and radiating charisma.
Nutcracker!

Misha!


 
Back to business!
 
 
This jacket is pretty boxy. You are seeing it after I had the tailor add darts to the back, which provide a modest amount of shape . . . but not much.
hmmmmm

I must say this boxy jacket is very comfortable


 
 
Is it working for me? Is it working for work? I don’t know. But I have a feeling that someday inspiration will strike and I will find the perfect time and place for this jacket. Until then, I have a very cozy jacket to throw on when I want a little bright color. Maybe I’ll try it with jeans. Perhaps I will wear it on the weekend with yoga pants and sneakers instead of a denim jacket.
blah

A purpose will be revealed

  1. I think it’s fun and I love the frayed seams. Would like to see a little more open, perhaps over a light color T-shirt, with jeans. To me, this is not a work jacket. This is a fun jacket!

But what do you think?
