General Direction






I originally had a long soliloquy to go along with this outfit, but Im now listening to Guys and Dolls (specifically Fugue for the Tinhorns) and I said to myself "who wants to read a somewhat depressing monologue about how I havent found my style yet ?"

So, Ill just say this:
  • I have discovered that I am in love with all things men inspired. I want tweeds, I want suspenders, I want linen shirts. I am fascinated with the idea of a feminine women in mens clothes. (Think red lips and a tuxedo) For 2010 Id like to dive into that world, and see where it takes me. And not only that, but I am soo looking forward to going there. I cant wait to share my exploits into women's mens fashion on this here blog. Get ready for menswear inspired editorials and just all around goodness. Guess what? Im excited to get dressed for the day now.
...and...
  • WHEN? 2010!

Wearing my mom's coat, Gap pocket tshirt, H+M leather belt (pulled from cords), Adina Mills crystal ring, spiral tights (courtesy of American Apparel), Mr. Kate happy wrinkles necklace, flea market wool shorts.

the textures/color mixing is exquisite! all of your outfits these days have been absolutely amazing.

This is perfect. Your outfit is wonderful and I can't wait to see all of your style exploration, especially considering I am stylistically bipolar. Currently I'm obsessed with all things girly, but I absolutely adore anything menswear inspired too. I'm really looking forward to all of your new posts. It's so refreshing to feel EXCITED to get dressed in the morning.
P.S.- Although it is ridiculously priced, I feel like the PS1 bag would go perfectly with your new direction.

Mr. Kate said...

Yes! Lovin' the masculine clash. I'm totally digging the tomboy look myself these days, something very freeing about looser silhouettes... flapper revisited ;)

mr. happy wrinkle looks sooo good on you! totally works with the textured worn vibe of the wool shorts.

Happy New Year Stylish! I wish you total bliss for 2010!

Great to see somebody else embracing the menswear, there is an elegance about a woman in men's clothing. i usually wear menswear or menswear inspired clothing, it's just me i'm a tomboy through and through

menswear inspired fashion is cool, but i think julia monson did it best in the blogosphere. :( sorry doll... but you look sweet.

I wish I could pull it off, but I just look lumpy and ugly. But you look great!

you already have incredible style. you don't need a specific style to go along with your personality. that would be impossible anyway, because personalities aren't static (unless you're a robot).

Anyway: change is good :)

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Woohoo! Happy menswear filled year! I love the mix of textures and patterns in this look.

But don't worry about finding a particular style! Fashion is all about having fun and you don't need to tie yourself to a particular "style." Just wear whatever you want, be it your beautiful, ethereal dresses or your more masculine pieces. You rock all your looks, girl! ;) (Man, I sound so over-chipper and obnoxious. But really..)

Happy New Year / Decade!

You really need to feature your mom!
Someone who owns this fabulous a coat and finds beautiful vintage treasures and takes your gorgeous pictures should be shown.

great outfit.

Caleb Poling said...

I feel like menswear has such good ideas that are often overlooked by the womens editorials and womens runways. Glad you are looking past a lot of that, and onto menswear.

Adri said...

I cannot get enough of your outfit posts...i truly am an avid lover of tweed myself. But your shorts are stunning...you have great luck in finding such great pieces.

Happy New Years!

Cad said...

Is this beautiful backdrop a part of your back yard or something?
I've seen many of your outfit posts in front of this fountain/pond-ish thing before,
And it looks like a part of the secret garden or something.
If it is a part of your back yard,
You're very lucky because it's gorgeous haha :)
Keep up the good work, girl!

Have you seen the movie, Sweet & Lowdown? All Uma Thurman's outfits are incredible, but the first one is the BEST:

MissNeira said...

Love this whole outfit, the tights with the shorts and of course the shoes!

Zooey said...

Hey. I wouldnt venture to much on men's if I were you. It doesnt suit you. The whole I'm-into-crystals-and-shit is way better. Dont go down that road cos everyone's just into the men's shiz already. Dont follow the trend, stick to your cool style.

StylePicks said...

Nice outfit. Love you shoes.

Kylie said...

At first I didn't like your spiral tights and those shorts because I felt like the patterns contradicted each other, but I think I like it now. Weird how you can just change your mind about something like that, right?

edith kate said...

Your blog has been fashionably lighting up my blog reader for awhile now, but I finally have a reason to comment!

Where on earth is your mother's BEAUTIFUL coat from?? I love it! If possible I'd love to know where I can get myself one.

Oh yeah and you're probably heard this before but you look a bit like Charlotte Gainsbourg. Who is also awesomely fashionable.
And i"m excited for the menswear coming up, I love that look.

Dounia said...

so pretty

Damsels said...

love how those wedges look styled like this .

the menswear inspiration really works for you

Hayley said...
