Transitional Black/white/grey pattern mixing

I was inspired by Aida's black/white/grey pattern and texture mixing, so tried something similar (well, as similar as I had in my closet anyway).  I ended up liking it pretty well.  Do you think it works?

I paired a black and white striped tube skirt with a marled grey swingy top. Topped it with the spiegel lemming black leather jacket (that I ended up wearing all day in the chilly A/C).  I had on a silver bracelet and brogues with ribbon ties shoes to make it more maximal.  But the color pallette kept it still almost minimal at the same time.

    Love this outfit! An Amiable top 10. Your hair is amazing. Did I miss something? When did this happen?

    Thanks Carla!  

    The hair.... it's been changing consistently all year as I experiment.  I think I like this version.... but I feel like I want it shorter on top, just a bit.  We'll see :)  I just refreshed the purple-ish color this week (and this outfit is from a week ago).  I'll have to post a more recent picture.

    You look fabulous. I agree with Runcarla that this is one of your best. And your hair is gorgeous.

    Love!! Especially with the jacket for the more maximal take. Tickled to have inspired such a fabulous outfit. And YES the hair is looking amazing.

    I love the outfit, but I'm not so sure about the shoes with it.

    Works to perfection! Love this, particularly with the jacket xx

    Oooo, I really love this, especially with the jacket. Nice!

    Excellent - you've been on a roll!

    *Swoon.* I'm going to need everything in this outfit to just magically appear in my closet in my size.

    The layering between the top and jacket is really interesting, and the color palette is lovely!

    Thanks all!  Not sure this counts as being on a roll - most days I don't even bother taking a picture, either because you've seen it, or because it's not fit to be seen.  But I'm glad that when I've cared enough to put in the effort, it's paying off :)

    Totally works, I love the drape of the tops, and the white line of the shoes mirroring the skirt. You look great.

  • Mirjana replied 4 years ago

    Very nice.

  • AviaMariah replied 4 years ago

    I really love this on you.  And yes, your hair looks amazing.  The color makes your skin glow.  And I love the dangly earrings!

    Great look.

    Am sooo loving the short hair. Saw you grow it into a bob on the forum - and now you're back to a pixie. FUN.

    Awesome outfit, everything works together very well.  Your hair is pretty.
