blazer/belt-Gap(more belts here), cardi-H&M, dress/ring-Le Tote, scarf-gifted, boots-Nine West
This outfit feels so 90's-dark-romance, like my 16-year-old self would have LOVED this look! In fact I had a dress with a very similar butterfly pattern back in the 90's and this oversized, menswear-inspired blazer feels like something the "alternative" girl would have worn in a semi-serious romance movie, like Marisa Tomei in Untamed Heart, or Drew Barrymore in anything. The black cardigan, was a functional layer because it's still pretty chilly here. In fact I think this blazer, may actually become my spring "jacket" as it's warm, easy to shrug on and off, and fulfilling my teenage-thrift-store-Christian-Slater fantasies!
But for serious, it's amazing how a belted dress, boots, jacket, and scarf can evoke such nostalgia and emotion on my part. When I was wearing this outfit, and looking at these pictures today I'm reminded of movies, and high school, and all those juicy feelings of angst, AND crisp fall afternoon roaming around with friends looking for a bit of trouble... Just goes to show you the power of outfitting.
