Unlikely match up: Comic & tapestry

I had a fair amount to do on the weekend so I hung up my heels (so to speak) in favour of my new flats.  I love these flats. I never thought I would say this but I think I may be converted or at least accepting of flats.  It's a new thing for me and my feet are still adjusting to having full contact with the earth and seeing the world from a good four inches lower than my normal viewing plane. 

This pair, unlike my Christian Louboutin leopard print flats, are very slipper like with a full tapestry floral inlaid design.  They can be rather 'pretty' and 'ladylike' looking due to the print, fabric texture and being a slimmer cut running narrow on the foot. This can be nice, but I don't like items that have to be pigeoned holed and since I don't do 'pretty' too often, I decided to play with them a bit and contrast them with a men's comic tee.  It's borrowed and so really over sized for my frame.  A couple of rolls of the sleeves really combated this issue and voila!  I had a fun outfit.  

I've been eyeing off so many of the graphic print tees this season but the prices are just insane!  Although this particular tee is borrowed from my boyfriend's closet, I generally buy men's printed tee's in random little boutiques. They are ten times cheaper than the designer ones, great quality and always a better fit than the women's clothing designs.  Plus there are so many to choose from. I've been told that women dipping in to the men's section for certain clothing is gaining momentum.  Has anyone else had success with this too?

  4. As long as the pop of colours are matching, there's no reason not to wear comics and tapestry. Good idea and perfect pairing !

  6. Ooooh - I really like. I really really like. I really liked them when you posted about them previously and I really like them now that you've got them. They're so girly but with attitude with the roses embroidered on black. And love the clash with the boy tee. Very cool. I sound like I can't string a sentence together don't I? Sorry, it's because I'm drooling over the shoes :o)

  12. Mandi, this is such a fun and neat outfit. I like oversized clothes so I tend to nick S's. All. the. time. I've borrowed (I use the term loosely - what's yours is mine, what's mine is also mine) his Barbour jacket, cashmere sweater etc. I just think the slouchy fit is more comfortable and flattering. But that's me. I hate anything to stick to my skin.
