pushing the envelope

This came first to mind when I put this outfit together. Pairing feminine and tough elements today and stepping outside of my comfort zone. This is one of those looks that you either love or hate. There isn’t much in between. You either feel it’s you and pull it off or you think I got dressed in the dark or just lost my mind.

Essentially, the belt pulls all the pieces together and creates a unique outfit that seems strange at first but it really works (at least it does for me). It is unique, maybe a bit eccentric yet it is within the boundaries of a minimalist.

    Hard to decide because I don’t know where I stand. I don’t just “love it or hate it”. I want to love it but the crochet skirt reminds me of the communist fashion of “milieu” placed on top of the TV :) I want to hate it but despite the communist vibe, the whole thing hangs together and fits together in a weird and wonderful way. Andy Warhol comes to mind. The jacket and belt balance the “milieu” and bring it to 2016. I would’ve worn it with some neon funky, edgy heels, but overall, it’s a very interesting look and hats off for the courage to pull that off !

    White lace an navy is probably one of my favorite combination! I love the oversized eyelet pattern.

    I think it is fun to try and step out of the comfort zone from time to time, to try new things. Love the navy on you and such a pretty cut out lace. :-)

    I love that you always push the envelope to create unique, amazing, super elegant office and work looks. Love that you belted that incredible blazer over the gorgeous eyelet midi skirt. Though both pieces are long, they work because they are both pretty slim and the belt cinches your waist. Your style as usual is very on point, Bogi. And I always get so much inspiration and my pleasure stopping by, today. =)

    Come share your awesome style with me on my Thursday Linkup. A brand-new one is live this week, pretty lady. I’d love for you to join it. Thank you and have a great weekend!
