The pants are back, almost as soon as they were gone.
It’s been so long since I tucked a blouse or top in. Doing so feels refreshing.
For a weekend movie, I thought a striped tee would do.
But for bonus points, I added a leopard print belt.
These clever pants have two sets of belt loops. Tall loops for wide belts and, hidden underneath the tall loops, short loops for skinny belts so that the belt stays centered on the waistband.
I thought the theater might be cold, so I tossed a little jacket in my bag.
This jacket sat in my YOOX Dreambox for at least a year while I waited for the price to come down. It dropped from $759 (madness) to $158 (final sale).
From the picture, I expected a wool knit like a sweater, but it’s more like a stiff twill.
We’ve previously discussed the virtues of short-sleeved jackets, so I don’t feel compelled to go through all of that again today. Instead, I will direct you to look back.
I will, however, point out some of the details on this jacket so that you will understand that it is very, very different from this short-sleeved black jacket. And from this one.
These sleeves are distinctive. I am not sure that they are the most flattering to my arms, but I think they work.
What I love about the jacket is the length and the swingy silhouette.
I was uncertain about these gaudy buttons upon first look, but have now decided that they are kind of fabulous. Hideo-marvelous, as they say.*
This button is so shiny that it is reflecting The Photographer’s image.
Have a fantastic weekend!
