Subtle Statements

[Image Above:]

I’ve always had a thing for unique pieces of clothing, and always had a hard time buying ‘boring’ basics (though I’ve gotten better at it in recent years). So, whenever I go to make an outfit, I end up piecing it together fromΒ  an odd amalgam of bold items – not always an easy task. What I really love about the outfit above is her top. I wish I owned it. It’s not only unusual with its integral, angular cape, but its also highly functional thanks to its monochrome black color and fluid cut. I’m going to have to find me something like that – or perhaps I’ll set out to make it!

    It shouldn’t be too hard to make. She’s like a fashionable batman! It would nice to see how that back panel connects.

    I’m not liking it so much it looks interesting thats for sure. Is the back of it a cape? Is she supposed to be batgirl supermarket version? I’m not convinced

    I love it. It’s like she’s an everyday superwoman. Great boots too.

    Love the boots and purse. But that top makes me think only one thing: that is has undoubtedly been accidentally dipped in a toilet or two!

    I kind of love this! It’s something I’d see on the hanger and would never think was possible to pull off – but she totally makes me want to try!

    I love this shot.
    Though not the most practical of outfits, it’s totally amazing.
    She makes it look casual.
    Gotta be tall and skinny to pull this one off with aplomb.

    thigh high boots, a mini skirt and a giant cape are what you call subtle statements?!? I would love to see you on a bold day. This is a cool look, though.
