Moschino

This is the debut of my Moschino Couture skirt from Sin City Antiques. It’s a little big, but, for $5, I’m not going to quibble.


Jacket, Urban Behavior (swapped and embellished). Blouse, Moda International. Skirt, Moschino. Tights, Danskin. Oxford pumps, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Studded cuff, Hot Topic. Earrings, Target.

This jacket has troublesome sleeves. They are very short and puffy. I added metal buttons and tassels to weight them down, but they still hit at an unflattering point of my arm. Pairing the jacket with a mid-bicep sleeve beneath was a nice solution.


Coat, Bebe. Hat, World Market. Scarf, gift. Tote, Target. Bag, vintage via Sin City Antique Gallery.

Great outfit! I love the lace sleeves under the jacket. Until I read your post, I assumed the lace was just part of the jacket.

That skirt is the tops. It had a court-jester anazingness about it, doesn't it? And I love how you've put it with the coat.

That skirt looks amazing on you! Love the Oxford pumps, and I really like that you layered the jacket with that top (I never would have noticed the sleeves were separate) lol

I hope that you take this as a compliment....it reminds me of all of those great Todd Oldham suits that Fran Drescher used to wear on "The Nanny" Please don't think less of me because I watched the Nanny...it was just for the clothes I swear....by the way, I would love it if you read my blog. I've just started it and I see that EVERYONE reads your blog so a link on your page would be a DREAM. Looking fab as usual my darling! bye.

I just went to Sin City for the first time a couple weeks ago! The $5 room was awesome...I'm sad to see that it's going to go when I've only just found it.
