Daily Outfit: 9/27/11

Already Pretty outfit featuring white AllSaints Aditya dress, military jacket, pearl bracelets, Frye Harness 12R, Infrared Studio skull earrings

Olive jacket, thrifted – similar
White dress – AllSaints Aditya – similar style/budget option
Boots, Frye Harness 12R
Bracelets, thrifted – similar
Earrings, Infrared Studio

I adore the poofy collar on this AllSaints dress, which, in its natural state, is marvelously dramatic. But it looked decidedly goofy spilling out over the collar of my jacket, so I wedged it inside. I’m also using my beloved fashion tape to create false lapels on this collarless jacket. So much deception packed into one outfit …

Husband Mike and I spent our Sunday afternoon tootling around Hopkins, and I scored big at the Hopkins Antique Mall. These lovely potato pearl stretch bracelets were part of my massive jewelry haul, but I mainly nabbed pairs of earrings. I’m still struggling a bit to find earrings that work with my cropped hair, and stumbled upon a both that was selling vintage earrings for $2 and $3 a pair. I bought many. MANY.

Today’s stellar skull filagree earrings were not among them, of course. Those were a purchase prompted by a recent collaboration with Infrared Studio. More on that this Friday!

    Hey lady, the outfit is great…. especially those earrings. Love them! Keep it up.

    I love the way you dressed down the white dress! It is so fun. I was just in the twin cities for the first time, and I had an awesome antique store find in Northfield-a royal blue vintage 1960s coat with row of giant side (instead of center) buttons. I’m in love with it!

    Great outfit! Love the contrast between the white feminine dress and the black biker boots. Those skull earrings are so cool. I really love pearls, and actually prefer the “cheap” ones, they come in so many colours and shapes, much prettier than a boring round unicolour pearl heh.

    I cannot wait to see pictures of those earrings! Congrats on the awesome buy 🙂

    I love the mix of elements in this outfit – it’s like part Marilyn Monroe, part bad-ass biker! And those earring are insanely cool (and I never like earrings!)

    I agree with pretty much everything all the other ladies have said–love the combo of BAMF and feminine, and I’m still in serious love with that dress.

    I think wearing a white dress and being able to make it look casual and fall-appropriate takes guts and a little fashion savvy too! Love the outfit- it might help me rethink some of my non-fall dresses to see if they can be revamped for the new season!
