Strike a Juxta-Pose!

(Image above: wardrobe photo from the blog, Living La Vida Rita)

I can’t begin to express how impressed I am that the stylish woman behind Living La Vida Rita was able to combine so many seemingly disparate elements into one stunningly adorable look! She’s managed to create a punky outfit that’s also totally office-appropriate by piecing together a skirt and a top with wildly different prints, then polishing those with a perfectly tailored blazer. And then the real kicker? Her amazing, studded, strappy sandals (a closeup of which she provides on her blog)!

Maybe you could pull off a similar, funky-formal look with something like the Glass Ceiling Blazer. What do you think?

About Richard

Richard finds style inspiration in an assortment of historical figures, musicians, and movie characters, including Doc Holliday, Tracy Pew, Han Solo, and El Topo. When not tapping at the computer keyboard for ModCloth, Richard spends his time playing music and dreaming of composing the perfect soundtrack to an epic gothic western film set on a distant, dusty planet, where the cowboys ride rocket-powered motorcycles instead of horses.

    I’m a big fan of her blazer! I’ve been looking for a black velvet vintage one myself.

    It’s hard to look both fashionable and work appropriate, Living La Vida Rita definitely pulls it off!
