Style Notebook: August 14, 2013
I’ve decided that I’m going to try putting outfits together digitally for a while and then I’ll slowly start feeling more confident and be able to do it in real life, I think. At least I hope so. Besides, it is much cheaper this way!
The point of this isn’t that I’m necessarily going to buy any of this, but rather I just want to try to get some type of look going that I might actually wear. Just for fun though, if I were going to buy this stuff here is what it would cost:
- Jaeger Black Skinny Jeans, £99.00
- Jaeger Red Wool Cutaway Jacket, £225.00
- Me+Em White Long V-Neck Ruched Top, £40.60 (on sale)
- Harrods Stella McCartney Feather Flower Print Scarf, £275.00
- Harrods Mulberry Willow Clutch, £650.00
- Net-A-Porter Lanvin Suede Lace-Up Ankle Boots, £730.00
- Grand Total: £2,019.60
Wow, casually elegant has a high price tag. Clearly though, all of the more expensive pieces are things that you could find lower cost versions of too. Though I must say I love love love those Lanvin ankle boots. Of course, I know that you can buy lots of ankle boots in black suede for probably 1/7th of the price of those. But aren’t they lovely? The only piece that I’m not sure would actually work with this outfit is the scarf because it might just seem like too much going on and detract from the look that I want. It’s certainly something that in real life I would probably put it on and take it off a few times before I decided one way or the other.
So, what do you think? Did I succeed in getting a casually elegant look that is actually wearable?
