Lately, I’ve been drawn to soft shapes with a lot of movement, floaty bits that dance along when I walk. I’d purchased these jersey slouchy knit pants a few months ago, thinking they might be good for my Hong Kong travel wardrobe, but they ultimately didn’t make the cut. They’re so comfortable, and when combined with the right pieces, flattering even. Just for grins I tried them with my long cardigan, and loved the result.
Of course, the sheer silk scarf really makes the outfit. I spied this scarf on a rack at Neiman Marcus last spring, and it was as they say, un coup de foudre. I may have gasped out loud when I saw that print. I was surprised to find out it was an Alexander McQueen piece, as there were no obvious skulls. (Turns out there are skulls, but they are subtle and only visible when the scarf is laid out flat.) Sadly I’ve not been able to find it online anywhere, but perhaps an intrepid Sales Associate could help you track it down.
Le Monsieur and I are planning a long weekend getaway next month for our 20th anniversary, and I thought this would be a good outfit for one of our evenings out. But I’ve also styled (and worn!) these pants for the office, and will show you that soon.
A few people have asked me about my photo process. I don’t have a photographer, or any special lighting setup. During the winter months, I’m limited to taking outfit photos on weekends and have to rely on “good” natural light, so probably have about an hour to 90 minutes total per week in which to shoot. I use a DSLR on a tripod, and a remote shutter trigger (which you can sometimes catch a glimpse of in one of my hands) set for a 2-second delay.
Have you tried any new clothing shapes recently?
