Today's Outfit: Easy Work Ensemble #3

  • H&M button-down shirt and vest
  • t o o d l e s by Toodlebunny cameo earrings
  • DIY brooch
  • Joe Fresh patent skinny belt
  • Timex watch
  • Camper oxfords


"I feel kind of Annie Hall-ish today," I said to my manager when she complimented this outfit. Indeed, borrowing inspiration from menswear has been one of my favourite "look put together in a hurry" strategies lately. Fuchsia lips and cameo jewelry kept it from looking too boyish though. I also like the subtle juxtaposition of the patterns and textures: the gloss of burgundy patent leather, the blue and pink check, chalk pinstripes on black, the distinctive wingtip perforation on the shoes.

  6. Where would I find the serial number? It's got the Chanel Paris on it and then the thick chain..I think it's from the eighties..it's a bit beaten up inside..
