Jessica Schroeder - Vintage Coat - Pattern Play
HYPE 47
  1. Vintage Coat

    , in Outerwear

I know a lot of you are gonna be all like “WTF is she wearing?!?” in this one, which is fine. But I LOVE THIS OUTFIT. First off, with the exception of the necklace and tights, everything is thrifted, which just goes to show you that wearing secondhand clothes can look great!

For starters I was totally channeling Kelly when I put this one together (she may or may not approve!) What I love most about this outfit is the pattern play - the jacket (which has a matching dress as well) has super wide cut and sew horiztonal stripes, then the blouse is a liberty print in the same color scheme. Finally, the skirt is just black with some metallic thin gold stripes. Its like none of these things were supposed to work, but for some reason they do. This is also a case where hosiery was left simple black and I think it really works.

I know a lot of you will think “not for me!” but does anyone actually like this outfit?

You should tell more people on your blog that you have a LB account. I just searched your name thinking you may have one, but I didn't know for sure. :) Just a thought.
