Shape Shifters :: Oversized Coat & Leather Skirt

Hello, my friends! To celebrate the Lunar New Year, I’ve decided to wear something red everyday for the first three days. Last time, I wore red underneath gray, the entire outfit was subtle enough, but today’s outfit, is fire-engine loud.

What gets more eyeballs / glares, red, orange, neon yellow? My pick is highlighter yellow. Last spring, Jimmy Choo had this pumps that resembled the exact color of those neon yellow strips on a traffic guy’s vest, they literarily screamed at me among the sea of shoes. I fled. It is good to know one’s limits sometimes. ;D

Like all of you, I browsed the web for inspirations. When I came across this red coat, I was totally drawn to it despite the bright color. The coat is oversized, I was worried that my petite frame might get lost in it. The fabric is so light, however, the coat actually shift with me as I move. It is more like a fleece blanket rather than a tent, if that is the right description. ;D To echo the structure of the coat, I paired it with a origami collar blouse and a leather skirt. The skirt has an elastic panel in the back so it fits snuggly, but the ruching around the hip also allow it to shift with movements. IMG_3673IMG_3738IMG_3658 IMG_3781IMG_3896IMG_3918IMG_3983
