The door in my wardrobe*

*the door not actually being there was a disappointment - but at least I was allowed to play with the clothes

This blog has already revealed me one thing. Dressing up is costume play for me, at some level.

One day I just thoughtlessly pulled on my harem pants (I love this quite extreme silhouette, got them from Only sale last winter) and started to think what to combine them this time. I threw out the rules to stay with fitted tops with harem pants, picked a flesh toned silk tank, my own super-oversized silk mohair knit (free knitting pattern here), a broken studded belt and distressed leather boots with rubber embellishments. The result looks hard to time exactly, did I come from the past or the future? And weirdly androgynous, which is an achievement with my ultra feminine build and all that fleshtone.

    Ooh, I can almost feel the softness of the knit from these pictures! (If it is infact really scratchy and itchy, please don’t tell me, leave me to my illusions! ;)

    I’m not much of a commenter, but I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now, and I really like it :)

    You made the harem pants look great, unbelievable. Yep, they are still not my favorite piece of clothing, but these piccies made me warm up. So, I love the outfit, once again!

    And on top, now I have the feeling that I should start knitting.

    Your blog is seriously dangerous…

    stellagee: kind of my thoughts… …thanks!

    elle s’ennuie: fortunately I don’t have to disappoint you — this knit is soft as baby’s breath on the skin! Thank you!

    Fisu: I know that you would love a pair! First: they look great on a tall person with light build, like you. Second: they are the most comfortable thing to wear after tracksuit pants (and those we don’t wear, right ;-)).

    I agree with Stellagee’s comment — it’s the same medieval/pre-historic element combined with an unconventional take (i.e. no space-suits as such!) on futurism, that draws me to Rick Owens et al. I do love your style more and more, it’s subtle yet surprising.

    […] thinking process upside down and start to explore that wearability factor. The first result is the Light Flyweight sweater — that actually has been in use quite a lot! On knitter point of view this migh be the most […]
