Atten-hut! DId I get your attention? Well, I am dressing in the “military style” today.. 🙂 If you didn’t get a chance to read about the comfortable and stylish shoes from yesterday’s post on Adrian Allen Shoes, do so especially if you are looking for a comfortable shoe for the Holidays!
As we get closer to Christmas, I always tend to reflect at the end of the year about things in which I am grateful. I have really enjoyed getting to know people better on the blog, and enjoy the supportive environment it offers. I am looking forward to spending time with family, in Pennsylvania and having the puppies with us this time. I have always been big on Christmas, celebrating, enjoying Holiday food and drinks and giving gifts. You saw a few weeks ago my Post about Joseph Ribkoff, a premier Canadian designer that is sold at 1ereAvenue. I wore an eye catching lace red top and black slacks. Today I am sharing another look with you from Joseph Ribkoff, and the second look I styled from 1ereAvenue.
The military look is still a popular one, with buttoned coats and military jackets with excellent detailing. This Joseph Ribkoff Military jacket caught my eye! With the gold buttons, cut of the jacket and flared style, i knew it was a jacket that could go the extra mile in my closet.
About the jacket “This three-quarter length princess jacket by Joseph Ribkoff stuns. The tailored waist and flared hem create a feminine silhouette that contrasts beautifully with military-style detailing. Embossed, gold-hued buttons are cradled by contrasting buttonholes. With decorative seam-work and detailing on vertical-seam pockets. Sleeves are cuffed.” *credit 1ereAvenue site.
The quality is amazing. The jacket is weighty and of excellent workmanship, and I love the button holes trimmed in a taupe stitching.
I love the leg detail here!
( I wanted to demonstrate the length of the sleeves is perfect as well for someone who has long limbs!)
I could wear it with a faux leather pants, a pencil skirt, skinny jeans or as in this case, Id chosen these Joseph Ribkoff black beautiful pants .
The “stretchy, figure hugging pants have an elasticized waist and ankle-length hem. Decorative rivets, pockets, and detailed seam-work lend a jeans-style air to this classic Joseph Ribkoff design. A domed cut-out at the back of each leg features lace-up detailing.” I loved that they were a silky knit that was a bit softer on my skin. I also fell in love with the criss cross design on the lower pant leg showing a distinctive style. The slim style pant balanced out the more voluminous flared jacket, making for a striking proportion. I am wearing a size 4 in both the pant and the jacket . The jacket has a fitted look, but still plenty of room for comfort.
I decided to add to the festive look with my gold bow bag and added a pop of color with my Marc fisher pointed lace up wedges.
Do check out the beautiful jackets from Joseph Ribkoff and 1ereAvenue as well as their selection of pants. This collection, at 1ereAvenue, is noted by a preference for black and white, with colors added in tops and jackets. For the Spring ’18 collection, you will see the black and white staples as well as floral patterns, stripes and some bright colors such as azure blue and powder pink. You know I love the florals, so THIS, THIS AND THIS DRESS I am loving!
