Suit You Sir

Hey Saturday Fashionistas!

What a gorgeous day it is here in New York City, the land of "baristas" and "mixologists" - for the British readers that means the makers of flat whites and the pullers of pints. A glorious day for a walk around the city to muse upon what Kate will name her new baby, my money is on Victoria (well it's hardly likely to be Britney is it?) 

In this post I am showcasing a wonderful gift that was given to me by Eve's aunt's friend, Mrs Charlotte Schwarz. It's a handmade 1940's suit that belonged to Charlotte's mother. It's absolutely gorgeous and fits me like a glove. Thank You Charlotte! I will treasure it xoxo

Here it is in #threewaystowear style.

#1 Wear it with a simple white blouse and super high heels to really showcase the suit, but also keep it modern. You don't really want to look like you just wandered off the set of Casablanca (except now that I'm saying that, that sounds kinda awesome, don't listen to me do whatever the hell you want!)





#2 Wear with a black top and cinch belt for an "everyday work" look - the dramatic sleeves really add some flare. 


#3 Throw the jacket over a black dress, I chose a dress that also had a 1940's shape to it to keep the look cohesive, but many other styles would work too. The blazer would add structure to a floaty maxi dress for example. Boom - four ways to wear, you're welcome.




Dress: Gift.
Outfit One: Blouse: Primark, Shoes: Christian Louboutin
