Dimension Play :: Faux Fur Top & A-Shape Bottom

Hello, my friends! Who is enjoying this sunny but chilly weather? When it is mild like today, a shorter coat / heavy sweater seems to be a good break from all the long coats we’ve been wrapping ourselves with. 🙂

The faux fur pull-over I had on was ordered last summer through Moda Operandi (a great place to shop for the future, btw), but I had been chasing other fall / winter trends and left it on the hanger until just now. The truth is, this pull-over is not as practical as a jacket because you can’t just take it off, but for a slightly chill day spend outside, it is ideal.5S6A3003 5S6A2973 5S6A2969

One other challenge with this top is its bulky shape and hip-length, not the most complimentary combination. Had it being a few inches longer, I would pair it with skinny jeans or leather leggings, but with the current length, I will only look like Popeye. ;D  My answer to the challenge is wider bottoms.5S6A3073

Noticed that I said “wider” not “bigger”? The skirt I chose has such design that the front view is expansive while from the side, it looks much slender. I remember when I first saw it on the runway, I was deeply impressed by how genius this design was, a full skirt effect without the actual bulkiness of a full skirt!

Because both top and bottom are on the wider side, I decided to keep the rest of my profile slim, so I had on a riding hat and leg-hugging boots. If I were to pair it with flare jeans or wide-leg pants, I probably will go with a wool fedora instead.

A long post today but I thought you might find this funny: three years ago, I bought a faux fur short coat and paired with flare denim and some chunky heels. It was too 70’s according to some but guess what, the 70’s is coming back, big time! ;DIMG_5785 copy

Thank you so much for reading! Until my next post!

    I like your blog a lot, your styles sometimes are so bold that I wouldn’t even dare to pull off, while in the same times they are so fresh and inspiring that very so often I can draw some safer new ideas from yours for my daily outfit which are on the edge of my comfort zone. Compared with other bloggers, you have much wider style horizon with so much unexpectable. Thanks you!
