ShirtSkirty or the Dries Factor

Psynopsis Chloe Sandals Vintage Katherine Hamnett Tie-Dye Leggings DIY Shirt-Skirt Self-Knitted Sweater

Psynopsis Chloe Sandals DIY Shirt-Skirt Self-Knitted Sweater
Big blazers, tie-dyed blouses and jeans, kimono dresses, lurex sweaters… for 2 seasons now my favourite show was Dries van Noten. It all looks so super effortless and while everyone’s eyes seem firmly fixed on Phoebe’s magic touch some very similar ideas look better executed at the Dries shows (think I). Armless blazers (yes, I tackled this too! More about it another day), the shirtdress, the shirtskirt… Oh, I LOVE the shirtskirt! Sure, it’s not new-new, but this was the first time I saw a solution to make it look like a skirt, and not only a shirt tied-around-the-hips. With inspiration aflame another of J’s shirts had to bite the dust...

What an inventive way to wear a chambray shirt - must check out this Dries Van Noten skirt shirt - I do love his work.
And I must see if the chambray shirt my man has been threatening to throw out is still around the place somewhere!
Like the ombre effect leggings - I like ombre against denim shades like that of your new skirt.

That is a very nice jumper - the colours are lovely together. xx

What a brilliant job, you've tied that to perfection and it really does look like a skirt. Loving the leggings, too.
I thought you were barefoot in that first shot, that would have been tremendously brave. xxx

Cloud of Secrets said...

The shirt skirt is new to me! I can't believe how trim and chic you've made it look. Hmmmh...I'll have to pay closer attention the next time my husband gives me a pile of workshirts to donate.

AH, le shirtskirt! I first saw it on Shini - also the shirtskirt's cousin, the cardoskirt. I love the way it looks on you. I keep meaning to try it.

Was just about to shut down when I saw your comment (thank you btw) and yes, I think I AM going! This is like the third time I'm rsvp'ing yes to them and so far I've pulled a no show each time. If I don't go this time they're going to cross me off their list. Let's try to coordinate our times okay? xx
