Challenge Outfit IV


This weekend, the Hello Sailor vintage fair was once again held in the city. I've always wanted to go, but since it only seemed to be advertised via word of mouth or through facebook (which I don't use that often), I never knew when it was. But this time, we managed to catch whispers of it just in time, and one of my most exciting buys was a tailcoat jacket. FINALLY, after so many months of searching for a decently priced one, I've found it. The only problem is that since it's a men's jacket, I'll have to get the shoulder's taken in a bit, or risk looking like a linebacker.

Anyways, this was what I wore.



Luella for target striped jacket (thrifted); Lover initiation bodysuit; Wayne Cooper skirt; black tights, thrifted brogues


My first time wearing both the jacket and the bodysuit. I'm still unsure how I feel about the jacket. I mean, I love the colour and stripes, it's all very candyman-ish. but it's just a tad on the big side for me, so from some angles, it looks sort of awkward.






It's also the first time I think I'm posting so many pictures for just one outfit, so let me know if you want fewer next time.

All in all, it was a good event. We were supposed to have gone on Sunday as well, but I had to pass due to me feeling sick. Spent the day alternatively napping and watching Torchwood instead, and even though I slept for 12h last night, I still feel kind of blah. So, keep your fingers crossed for me.

It's sort of like the flee/spree thingamabubs they have in Malaysia. You know, people sell things. Haha.

How about you, madam? Unless you're going to work in your birthday suit, where are all your fancy clothes for you new fancy job?? Hmmm...

I love every element of this outfit and how it all falls together. You look great! I feel self-conscious when I post more than a couple photos of an outfit up, too, but as a reader I've found that I enjoy seeing pictures of details.
