Blue Monday: Blue Dress + Brocade Coat

This outfit is so quirky, but I just LOVE everything about it...from the hat, to the unexpected gray sock/peeptoe combo, to that incredible gold brocade coat. What's great is that each piece on it's own is really quite classic, but her combination just completely reinvents them. I'm always amazed by that (hello, like, everyone The Sart photographs!). Plus, I feel like I'm too old to dress quirkily anymore, so looks like this one make me a tad wistful.

In other Monday news, we successfully babysat on Friday night, then I spent the weekend being marginally unproductive, except for doing a little crafting and finishing a Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys mystery (whew! that was some heavy reading!), and now, for a variety of reasons, it's a super-tense week at Chez Brahler, so I'm glad we had a quiet relaxing weekend.

How was your weekend?

  1. LOVE this look too! The hat pulls it all together... hooray for hats! Sounds like you had a fun weekend :-)

  2. i "liked" this when someone posted it on tumblr...such a cool jacket.

    have you been getting my emails? i wanted to talk to you about the giveaway but i haven't heard from you...

  3. Oooh I love this jacket!!!! So vintage/nerdy but cool look....I want it all!!!

  4. I love this. I love the weight and texture of brocade. And I'm the same as you - I feel too old to wear the crazy outfits I used to rock! Although I'm sure we're both just being bonkers. You could totally pull something like this off!

  5. yes, I've been really like the socks and sandals look, though I don't think I have the right sandals for it.
