Lookin' like an erotic vulture...


True story: I've worn these Rag & Bone pants for three days in a row now. They're radically comfortable. Why can't all skinny pants live up to this precedent? This outfit is what I wore to work yesterday, it's a a little bit Rick Owens inspired. "Poor man's Rick Owens" if you will, since the vest is from Winners and the tank is H&M.

There's this crazy guy at work who always comments on the interesting "capes" I like to wear to work and made me promise to wear one before I left to go back to school (which happens to be tomorrow). I just love it when people who aren't into fashion can get stoked on something just because it's a little different, even if he did call my a vest a cape.

aw, that's so funny about the crazy cape guy. You look awesome, of course. I'm a little jealous of the awesome comfiness of those pants. I would probably live in them.

haha, i love that too. it makes me happy.

The vest is great -- very dramatic.

I love these kind of vests! We don't have Winners here (haha) but I believe there are some just like this one at American Apparel... they just don't suit me.
What do you study ?
I'm glad you liked my first post. I'm updating it daily, in fact, I'm just about to write my 3rd post.

What a great "last day" outfit!
It feels like the last of many things. The pool closed on Tuesday :(

The days are so pretty these days, but I know it won't be long before we're all b*tching about being cold again.
Oh yeah, good luck at school! I forgot how much I liked your school outfit posts. xo

Very cool look.

Amelia said...

I think if I found the perfect pair of skinny pants, I would wear them that often, too. Great outfit.

Eva Internazionale said...

I love your vest, you look great!

Malena said...

It is a rather cape-like vest, but that's why it's so cool!

Sally said...

Haha my favourite part of this post is the crazy guy and his idea of "capes". I think people like fashion a lot more than they think they do: it's always interesting when someone looks different.

Just by the by, you look trés pretty and it's a lovely outfit.

Miss Woo said...

haha, your worker is just totally jealous of your collection of amazing vest capes.

and ps: PIXIES REFERENCE! Why don't more people dig subbacultcha I never know.

Ain't nothin wrong with the "poor man's" version of anything. Life isn't much more lucrative after college (for me at least!)...I try to specialize in "poor man chic"...thank god for thrift shops...and chosing fashion over silly things like groceries. The way I see it, no one ever died from living on oatmeal/pb&js...but I do die when I see a sexy pair of shoes, haha.

Laura @ effluvia said...

Because cape makes it sound 5 times cooler-- not that it isn't cool already!

ZombieLace said...
