This outfit started because I am in love with the Micha Mi Carmela bustier and when Milla sent them out in red and green as a holiday gift I was so excited. She knows her customers well! If you read her blog then you know all about her, but if by chance you haven't gotten to her store--get to it! She has amazing racerback tanks, in a gorgeous brown, and lots of great complete outfits. I knew wearing a bustier though in such blistering cold weather I should throw something else on; browsing my inventory though I saw the Armidi Gisaci Pleated Neck babydoll and before attaching I said to myself, " I think this is going to work, way to go Milla for making your red just a falu in color," and what do you know? Perfect match!
My other long distance love that I have not had a chance to wear yet were these leather Richelieux from Polina Kaestner creations, they were a group gift as well for the grand opening but at the store there are lots more and in a variety of colors. Plus in the sequin collection there is a beautiful dress--totally my new year's dress and this blazer, that I so need to pick up. Did I mention the prices at both places are stellar!? Well, they are.
The pants, the pants! These Kiki pants from eLdee were a long time favorite of mine, I should go pick them up in a few more colors. These are a high-waisted trouser and stunning texture work by Lilyana Dryke. Though I'm personally not a fan of the extended system pant leg, that does not detract from the beauty of these pants, however I decided to shorten them just a bit to make them look like a sleek tailored pant and voila!
Oh and the Soon scarf from Thimbles? Well its just too fun!
