Inspiration

As you can probably tell from the last week’s worth of posts, I am totally crushing on my faux leather jacket this month – I’ve been wearing this thing everywhere.





faux leather jacket: Macys / scarf: thirfted, Old Navy / dress: ModCloth / boots: Kamik, Olivia model

A recent edition of Vogue also featured a little write up on designer Haider Ackermann (who Karl Lagerfeld once remarked should be his replacement at Chanel) and, intrigued, I went to the archives of style.com and viewed his semi-recent Fall 2011 collection…I think I may be in love with the slouchy yet structured cuts, the goth edge, and the bold jewel tones. Gorgeous!

I LOVE that outfit, definitely one of my favorites of yours to date! I think I'm just a sucker for anything that's similar to 1960's mod!

I'm also a huge Haider Ackermann fan. He really is the true master of knitwear! I'm crossing my fingers that he takes over for Chanel once Karl retires but in a recent interview with him (I think it was with W Magazine? I can't remember) it seems like he changed his mind :( Hmmph!

Leather jackets are so versatile! I try to wear my bomber jacket as much as possible before summer hits edmonton. You look great, I like the texture of the skirt too! Hope you didnt miss your mommy too much today, being away from home.

I need your boots ... I know I keep telling you how cute they are but I love them. although I can only see the skirt part of your dress, I love that grayish pattern, also like the pop of green.

Thanks for sharing Haider Ackermann's designs. I keep wondering who will really replace Karl Lagerfeld, that seems like a huge space to fill.
Have a happy Monday.

I love the mix of tweed and leather in your outfit! Classic meets biker.

I'm not really familiar with Ackerman's work, but this collection looks pretty cool, lots of interesting shapes for sure!

I love the edgy cutouts and oversized belts - and the jewel tones. And why not pair a jewel tone with a springtime bright or pastel?

Also loving your jacket, the cut is so flattering.
