It's just another Manic Monday.....hmmmm, perhaps not!


'The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.'
'In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.'

This half outfit picture just screams out those two Coco Chanel quotes. It is the accessories and details which bring this outfit from normal to not-so-normal. Usually, I am not one for loads of accessories, but I was just drawn to this outfit & accessories, like a fly to the light. This is the sort of outfit, that I want to wear today and perhaps for the rest of the week, tattoo and all. It has attitude, but with femininity thrown in.

What do you think of it all?

I definitely think that despite all the ongoing elements with this outfit, they all work together to create something so very visually appealing! It all just works!

Don't forget to enter my contest, if you'd like! :)

Wrecked Stellar said...

I'm all about layering and such and like this look but something I'd change is the earrings- they're not needed. But this is great inspiration otherwise :)

Make Do Style said...

Good choice of quote and I think that over accessorising works sometimes and other times restraint is called for. This image has all the right ingredients of neutral, texture, print and colour.

Justyna said...

love thisimage, great over-accessorizing, although it doesn't seem like its too much!

Jennifer and Sherry said...

awesome looK! :) love the jacket

Elle said...

I think dear Coco would use another famous quote:
"Before leaving the house, a lady should stop, look in the mirror, and remove one piece of jewellery."

:)

I think this works though! Love the bag... definitely lusting!

Sarah said...

You could argue that it's overkill, but life is too short for that kinda stuff, so if you like it, go for it!

em.me.ma said...

it is gorgeous but i dont quite like animal print, however i do love tats and ringss :) <3

Style Porn said...

I've been soooo into over-accessorized looks like this. So much so that I find myself dreading the return of "minimalism." Every time I read that somewhere I cringe a little inside. I guess I'll always be a "more is more' type of girl.

KAT said...

great details!

CC said...

The studded jacket is so rad! *adore* :)

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Yes, yes, and yes to all! I love everything about this picture! xoxoxoxoxoo

Athena_Trendsetter said...

Well, I love the leopard print clutch bag and the studded jacket with the earrings but the rest is a little too much. I mean, it's not like we haven't seen it all before, right?
Besides, less is more.

Anyway, I love your blog and this whole post. It helps people express different views. ;)
