Today’s outfit of the day is mainly focusing on these beautifully sexy 50s cigarette pants I got while vintage shopping a couple of weeks ago. They’re honestly one of the most precious vintage items I own. I am aware that they’re green but that didn’t stop me from purchasing them. These cost a whopping 10$ at the Nova boutique in Ste-Anne-De-Bellevue. These pants are giving me Holly vibes, you know Breakfast at Tiffany’s, that scene where she’s wearing royal blue cigarette pants on the balcony signing Moon River…those kinds vibes. I was super inspired to style them as they were in that scene, however, I wanted to put my own touch and that meant adding textures and colors to the outfit. Depth is always necessary in my own fashion book. Since I never really wear green, I decided to be quite daring with the color choice that went into this outfit. Since it is starting to get a little bit colder here in Jericho, I knew I needed a jacket to cover up.
And so, without further ado, here’s how it came out and to be frank, I am a little proud of the outcome:
Unfortunately, the label was washed out and so I couldn’t really tell the brand of these pants…but the obvious cut was clear to me that they were super 50s. The super high waist, the cigarette cut, the fit, everything about it screamed that. They are fantastic in fit! They hug the body in the right places and they actually might be classified as overly sexy, depending on what you wear them with. I wanted to keep the modest factor in and so I added the trench coat to avoid the butt/hip enhancement issue. I mean it’s not really an issue, I embrace my big hips….but I am not too comfortable flaunting them.
WHAT I WORE:
SHIRT: Topshop ◊ PANTS: 50s Vintage (unlabeled) ◊ SHOES: Badgley & Mischka ◊ TRENCH COAT: Vero Moda ◊ NECKLACE: Gift*Antique Silver ◊ EARRINGS: Crystal Couture Bridal ◊ SUNGLASSES: Vintage*Brigitte Bardot ◊ BAG: Nine West
I was contemplating on wearing a basic white shirt, but then again, that would be too obvious and too boring. So instead, I opted for my favourite boho navy Topshop blouse and it just made sense.
These shoes are my most precious possession. I mean they were my wedding shoes…and the only thing that remains from the wedding. My wedding dress got stolen, le sigh! Anyway, so I hold on to these shoes for dear life and I try not to wear them out too much. But today felt special and I needed to pair them with the green pants. They were super fitting and without overthinking it, I knew these shoes would work out perfectly. They’re a deep burgundy and complement the green in the most fashionably daring way possible.
I felt very fashion forward in this outfit and super lady-like. Although these color seem a little bit weird, I feel like they marry well together and the turban scarf pull everything together.
So, although I may not have been a green girl before, I can safely say that now I am a convert and I should give every color of the rainbow a chance and try it before hating it. Next color to try could be either purple or orange. Slightly frightened, not gonna lie, but I am up for the challenge!
