19 Sep Turning Heads Linkup- A Menswear-Inspired Structured Look
Happy Turning heads Tuesday ladies!
We had a fun weekend at “Woofstock”, a music, food truck and brewery event in NoDa, an arts district near where I live. I couldn’t pass up a doggy event! There were several Dog Rescues there, waiting for adoption, as well as the entrance fee going to support the charity. You all know how much i love dogs, as it was a good time! As for Fashion, today, I decided to take out my plaid vest, ( plaid is hot this season!) and style a look around it.
As i look at the shopping sites and read about the Fall trends, plaid is showing in stores as well as a structured look with plaid suiting, jackets, trousers and tops. I love these trousers, they are on my Fall wishlist, and i also love this dress.
I am a fan of vests and i score this one from the Limited, on Poshmark, I think for $10. My LOFT skirt has stood the test of time, and is a pretty old piece. I decided i wanted to give the look a “vintage vibe” and styled this fillagree pearl brooch my mother in law gave me as a defining piece on this white blouse. I like to think of creative ways to wear brooches, and i think a post will be in the making on other ways to do so!
The look is a fun mix of menswear inspired with some feminine details of the pearl brooch, and the ruffles of the white blouse. The suede cognac block heels I purchased last year and now have the chance to wear them. Later in the season, i would wear this with some patterned tights and boots. i also have a pair of brown tweed kitten heels that would work with this look. I finally brought out my Louis Vuitton Speedy, which was getting lonely in my closet!
Noting that plaid is a trend for Fall, I wanted to tell you about an experience I had lately. Margaret Manning, of Sixty and Me did a video interview ( 4 segments) with me talking about trends, my style, wearing accessories etc. If you get a chance, CLICK HERE FOR THE INTERVIEW. It was my first video, but i enjoyed it. It was a great opportunity, a learning experience and I may consider doing more. Doing video was one of my “fears’ I talked about in a post and I felt like it was a step forward in overcoming that challenge.
I wrote about Defining Your Signature style, and details for me, can really help make a look. I do love a feminine, classic look, but also love adding trends to my wardrobe.
Hmmm, Maybe i should borrow his bow tie? 😉

I realize that i have been using Pinterest more and more and thought about a Feature i may want to start once a month. I would call it “Pinterest Interest” and emulate a seasonal look from a Fashion Pin I found. Does this interest you?
Are you a fan of the menswear inspired look? Do you like a structured look.. ie plaid blazers, skirt?
