Cuffed and Pushed

Jacket, Star City (thrifted). Tank, Charlotte Russe. Skirt, Eddie Rodriguez. Pumps, Delicious. Necklace, Forever 21. Studded collar (worn as a bracelet), thrifted.

I’ve only worn this jacket once before and felt like I was swimming in it. The torso fits, but the shoulders are extra big and the sleeves too long. Shortening the sleeves to 3/4 length has been on my project list for months. I still haven’t done it, but cuffing and pushing them above my elbows works in the meantime. And I actually like the strong, padded shoulders.







The image on the right is actually a deceptively flattering picture of the jacket with unrolled sleeves. Click on it to be brought to the August 2008 entry, with an especially ugly lead photo.

I really like the red skirt with the yellow shoes.

I think you could take the darts in a bit on the front too-that way it doesn't make you look so boxy and shows some curves :)

What a great color combination! The 3/4 length really makes the jacket look much better imo.
