my dear friend elana got me the sartorialist book for my birthday. i could flip through it 1000 times and be inspired by something different each time. i noticed that there are a lot images of men wearing double breasted jackets in the book and on the blog. i wanted to translate this into a more feminine look, and since i needed to get dressed up for work today i wanted a look that was an update to a suit. the double breasted jacket that i own has metal buttons so it's kind of a statement piece on its own. this is why i decided to keep everything else pretty neutral and simple. the look is mostly about playing with proportions. boxy longer jacket, skinny cropped pants, and high heels to elongate the legs.
