Yesterday

Here is the full post of yesterdays outfit albeit a little belated. 

I always feel a tad bit like.. well.... an idiot, getting photographs taken for the 'what I'm wearing' posts.  So in an effort to have some fun (which is all I really hope to achieve) and relax a little, Tom and I decided that snapping a few twirls and whirls might work.  Ironic isn't it that dancing around in an unusual fashion some how made the entire process easier, more natural, less intrusive and less idiotic.  As it turned out, this really captured the movement and natural fall of the jacket beautifully.

I had seen this jacket at the start of the season and managed to refrain from purchasing it, which was a miracle in itself. But it just keep popping up in various blogs that I frequently read and I just couldn't shake the thought of missing out.   To my delight, but to the detriment of my savings, I finally got sick of the torment and caved. Kayin... your posts (of your black jacket) pushed me over the edge for which I am eternally grateful!

    1. Hi Kendall, I'm wearing a size 36FR in it and I found it to fit well. I'm normally a size 0 or 1 in Isabel Marant jackets (depending on the cut). Definitely couldn't have gone any bigger as the shoulders would have gone too wide

  2. Haha, glad to be of service! :D And I must say the Sade is absolutely perfection on you! Love how you paired it with the white jeans and those stunning Pigalles (which I have my eyes on, ehum). Oh, and you're right, those twirls and whirls really shows the beauty of this jacket even more. Enjoy your Sade in good health, she was made for you! :) xx Kayin

    1. The Pigalles are exceptional. I have to make an effort to wear different heels :) Well worth it. You've definitely done my wardrobe a great service! xx

    2. Yay! So happy that I've done your wardrobe a great service! I can't wait to you will receive the Kady and to see it on you. Although I am a bit afraid you might pull the same trick on me. ;)

      By the way, would you mind telling me if the Pigalles are comfortable to wear/walk on? And are they true to size? I'll be travelling to Paris soon, so might check them out then. Thanks so much Mandi! xx

    3. Believe me... I'm looking to pay back the service! I'll let you know as soon as I hear the Kady's in stock. I'm so glad it's half the price. Your Balenciaga is also tormenting me! I've been holding out for an older version (the black leather/black hardware). No luck to date but it will turn up.

      With the Pigalles you need to be someone that can handle high heels. I think they are bordering on 5" or so (120mm). As long as you can do the height they are great. If you are looking for something a bit easier to wear, the Chiarana pump is great (it is the 2nd link for the shoes at the bottom of my post - or on Netaporter US). They are kid leather and 100mm high but stunning! They both run true to size :) xx

  19. The leather on the jacket is beautiful. Can see the grain so clearly. Wish I looked like that in white jeans. Wish. Wish. Wish. And you appear to be a natural infront of the camera. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  23. Hehe, I can totally relate to what you are saying! Sometimes I feel so awkward doing all those poses while I have my photos taken, so usually I end up having a laughter doing goofy poses and just dancing around!

    Your photos are really great and what a wonderful outfit!!
