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

//// Pencil silhouette

Posted on | December 8, 2011 | 5 Comments

For my body type — curvy and feminine in relatively small boned frame — it would be all natural to explore the classic pin-up silhouettes. I just can’t do that. What I can do is to take a piece or two from that world and mess the silhouette by adding some oversizedness, clumpiness… …well, awkward shapes of my choice.

In my world this egg-shaped sweater is pretty much a perfect match for this old pencil skirt. I like how the sex-kitten angora fuzziness meets perfectly body concealing shape. The knit is heavyweight enough to have some body of its own. I also dug a pair of *gasp* kitten heel pumps with ridiculously sharp toe from my closet. They have looked so outdated for many years, but I still love their perfect nude shade and vintage appeal.

The knit is from H&M, pinstriped cotton pencil skirt with jean pocket details by Diesel and several years old — it’s truly restrictive with close fit, heavy fabric and no walking slit — the pumps are by Bronx, from the beginning of the millenium…

    You look amazing. A pin-up who has just got up and is only halfway through getting dressed (not, obviously, half-naked — the house is too cold — but only half dressed).

    I’ve always liked the contrast between a fitted business skirt and a slouchy top. This is a lovely combination.

    i loved it!
    something about the first pic was so captivating… so ethereal.
    it looks chic without imposing sexiness… it just merely suggest.
