In the spirit, once again, of E-Jo’s ongoing remix extravaganza, I present one top, two ways. There’s a chance I’m in need of a break from the black with red accents. But it’s just so easy and comfortable – and these are important qualities in end-of-term wear.
You know what else is easy? A black poly-blend top. Because it goes with EVERYTHING and doesn’t fade in the wash. Here’s this wardrobe workhorse one way (with the oh-so-edgy mug-in-hand pose) back in September:
Poly-blend top: Anne Klein (via Winners)
Gray denim bubble skirt: Rita di Cesare (Canadian designer, yo! Purchased while skipping the morning panels with Rinty the Crusher at a conference in Janey-Em‘s O-town)
Boots: Miss Mooz (remixed)
Knee-socks: black cotton (from wherever)
And here’s the same top with the same colour scheme, combined to create a less casual look this morning:
Top: as above
Skirt: Ice (yes, it’s lined; via Winners)
Belt: Buffalo (via Winners)
Shoes: Clarks Artisan (remixed)
The belt would NOT stay put, so I used a hair elastic to keep it in place. This, however, seems awkward and un-profesh. Tell me you’ve got a better solution, StyleNation.
