Ruffled fur jackets seem trendy.
Flounces abound in this featured outfit, which is tempered a bit, by a bit of solid white and simple black boots.
Why is this not a trendy outfit? I will explain!
When you look back in time, you will noticed that while frills come and go, a well made ruffled piece can be a longtime fashion statement. In rose-pink, this kind of frilly jacket is very feminine. The pink glasses add to that vibe.
You may notice I have not been shopping much. Instead I have been shopping my closet! This metallic skirt and white blouse are two pieces that are exceptions.
Therefore, these are my first retail buy in quite a while. However, these were bought at consignment !
Designer Revival is an outstanding source for upscale consignment pieces. Jacquarded and shot through with metallic, this skirt by Marc By Marc Jacobs was bought “new with tags”.
Shopping second-hand saves one a lot of money, and you can get the opportunity to acquire truly unusual pieces.
Excellent details of this outfit are compelling to my eye. I hope you agree.
Ruffled fur jackets can also be a statement piece.
Faux fur jackets, in an abundance of eye-catching styles, are easily found.
Mixed media details elevates the style!
Eyelet gives this blouse another touch of feminine style. Creamy in crepe, this blouse is by COMPTOIR DES COTONNIERS. Best guess is that I bought this blouse for about 80% off!
Score one for Elle!
Certainly this is a forever piece!
Rose colored glasses are run to wear and you see me wearing this color often.
Look here for the ultimate in FEM style, pink taffeta tulle, brought down to earthy my vintage cowboy boots!
Blingy rings add some fun factor here. Certainly it is well established that I am a “pile it on” gal!
Window shopping recently I saw a great variety of upscale confections! I did see some ruffled fur jackets, leather motos, bold printed dresses, and even bikinis! Below a shot from the window of ALTUZARRA. Print delicious, yes?
How the city whizzes by in a car! A shot from an Uber drive recently!
Lights and branches greet me when I finally arrive home on this busy day!
There is a busy buzz in he air with #NYFW finally finished, but New Yorkers are zipping about in their usual frenzy. I will post some coverage of the shows soon!
In the meantime, I have been juggling health issues with a hectic schedule.
I compromised well this year and feel fine! It is so important to know one’s limits.
So dear readers, ruffles and frills? Yes or no?
Frilly looks with edgy wardrobe pieces done in concert?
Yes, Yes, at least I think so. Let me know. You know how!
—— XOXO, Elle ——
