A Take on Menswear - FTF Blog Event 8/17

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

This month's Full Time Fabulous blog event is about inspiration. With such a wide range, I admit I was stuck. I decided to look into my closet to see if I could find an idea. While I was at it, I started reorganizing my clothes when I found my old vest. I've only worn it a couple of times in high school & I've forget about it since.

Well, lately, I've been inspired by some menswear looks - especially now that it's getting closer to autumn, it seems like the perfect time to blend in some menswear pieces into my wardrobe. I'm loving the look of using menswear inspired pieces & mixing them with feminine touches. So I decided to roll with that idea for my outfit - though I dressed it down a bit since I was just going to the movies that night.

cardigan/hoodie - American Eagle / white t-shirt - Target /
vest - Urban Outfitters / jeans - Express / nude Oxford booties - Lulu's

bag - Aldo / pink feather earrings - Aldo

  24. I love the bag! It's super classy. I suck at menswear. I do love a nice boyfriend cardigan or button down. I'm such a skirt and dress type of girl.

  25. Oh, you did such a great job with this! I'm crazy about the menswear look - I actually wrote a whole post on how men's fashion inspires me a while ago, but I never published it. You executed it perfectly!

    And that Aldo bag was totally on my wishlist a while ago. It looks darling!
