I'm not really sure how this outfit came together, but I'm fond of the odd British vibe about it. Kind of like a cross-dressing Sherlock Holmes. I've been wanting to style this lovely skirt by Megan Nielsen again, but for whatever reason, I had it in my mind that only lace-up black boots would do. Thank goodness I swiped these Pour la Victoire boots when they went on sale. I can't help but feel a little Rock Horror Picture Show-ish when I wear them.

  3. It obviously happened for a reason - I think I'm going to start channeling a cross-dressing Sherlock Holmes more often.

  7. Nice look, I approve. And as we're talking of British things, I just want to debunk the myth that British people have bad teeth. I just don't see it. In fact, I have lovely teeth.

  14. I love how big and overwhelming the cape is and how the skirt is on the shorter side. And the dark colors are very Moorish.

  21. I'm going to have hilarious daydreams about a cross-dressing Sherlock Holmes, now. He'll probably be the lead in Rocky Horror.

  27. You're too cute for words. Those Tory Burch boots a few posts down are to die for, too!

    What part of DC do you live in? I'm in Northern Virginia, and I am FOREVER trying to convince my LA/NYC friends that we're just as stylish as they are.

  42. That shawl is to die for! Those boots are amazing. I can see the Rocky Horror Picture show thing you feel, but I definitely don't think that's a bad thing. They look awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Don't think Rocky Horror (although a great movie) The boots are sensational.
    I love!

  46. I totally failed to mention in my blog, the button down shirt is one I bought for my boyfriend for fancy dress and then stole because it's so nice. I highly recommend wandering by your husbands closet and seeing what you can "borrow" ;)

  61. I think lace boots have become my life savers this winter. They go with everything, and the thick soles make you look tall and slim (not that you'd need this, E., you look tall and slim and amazing already). Love the 'British Blanket look', my only problem with ponchos and capes is... What to do with the bag?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  62. You never cease to amaze me, this look is so spectacular, and the photos capture it beautifully!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Beautiful outfit! I love the dark colors and you look so adorable all wrapped up in that cozy cape. I am also in love with the outfit in the previous post, everything about it is Perfection!
