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.

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

Urge to sing Sweet Transvestite Sherlock Holmes is quite strong.

I love the wrap, it's beautiful and looks so warm.

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.

jamie-lee said...

there's almost a schoolgirl vibe that I get from this outfit too - however you put it together, I love it!

Love all of the pieces of this look, but especially your shoes and cape!

Wicked Halo said...

you may not know how it came but it's a great combo, very trendy and cool!

Christina said...

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.

Poppy said...

A fantastic outfit, perfect I imagine for the English countryside.

Aesthetic Alterations said...

Mekinking said...

Between Laundry Days said...

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

Sal said...

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.

Is it chilly there? The tip of your nose is SO pink! heheh, just the tip though...lucky you - my entire nose gets red when I'm (a) hot (b) crying (c) cold (d) embarrassed (e) drinking........ohh sad days for me and my drunken Irish nose.

Love that shawl - as always, endlessly elegant!

Kate said...

Ooh, there is something SO lovely about this! I like it! I agree, there is definitely a little sherlock holmes-iness happening here! Very cute!

love your cape, darling, it's beautiful!

Claggie said...

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.

Carly said...

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

haha i was thinking to myself 'how does she manage to make a blanket/cape and a plaid skirt look this hot?'. but you answered it for me: sherlock holmes + cross dressing = hot outfit! i'm going to have to try this formula one day. ~joelle

S and O said...

What a gorgeous outfit!
You look super chic dressed down all in black :)

Pam S said...

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" ;)

Beautiful shawl!

FashionJazz said...

Fabulous outfit! xxx

SabinePsynopsis said...

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?!?!

deep_in_vogue said...

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

Savvy Gal said...

warm and stylish.

Heart Charlie said...

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!
