Last time I wore this blouse here, I felt lukewarm about the look.  The blouse is 100% feminine and I wanted to roughen it up a little.  I decided to retry the ruffle blouse thanks to the helpful comments of some lovely readers.  Kim suggested wearing it with leather leggings and black heels, and Bessie recommended removing the bow.  Thank you ladies!

blouse :: Lafayette 148
jacket :: Yves Saint Laurent (thrifted)
leather leggings :: Leith
cuff :: F21
necklace :: c/o mom for bday
heels :: Tahari (Marshalls)
bag :: Chanel
I liked the way it turned out!  The one thing that makes me a little nervous is the length of the blouse with the leggings.  I usually like a LITTLE MORE BUM covered up than this.  Maybe I can wear a longer layer under the blouse next time.  The jacket was an estate sale find for $30!!  I had it altered to fit and it’s fab!  It’s a sturdy wool with a simple graphic pattern – definitely a classic.  The checks on the jacket, purse, and shoes all go together.  Maybe, it’s too matchy matchy!
Who helps you with styling advice? A friend? A relative?  {Usually I know that something is amiss when Mr. S gives me a look!  Then, I change into a safe outfit – something I’ve worn before that I know looks okay.  Later, I will try different permutations and ask his opinion.  Sometimes, it’s helpful!  Sometimes, it’s not!}

Happy Friday!  Hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend!

    Fantastic outfit! I, of course love the leather leggings, but I love it paired with the feminine blouse and the deal of a jacket! The jacket looks Chanel inspired, so great.

    Such a fabulous outfit! I love the leather pants especially – you are def. working it!!

  20. Sam, this outfit looks so good girl. It came out great! I love the leather leggings with it and those heels are AWESOME. I was doing a little research this weekend and did you know the trend now is ruffles and leather? This definitely reminds me of it. You already have impeccable taste, so I’m very humbled and flattered that you liked my suggestion. It’s a great look! :D
