Pièce de Résistance

The image that sparked the creation of this outfit is this one from the Prabal Gurung collection, which was part of my Fashion Week roundup post last week. And yes, I realize the two outfits really look nothing alike, but the kernel of the idea was simply to wear my furry vest over my long cream cardigan, not necessarily to recreate the whole outfit (though I still want to try that too). After that I just got carried away, grabbing as many white, cream, and beige items as I could find and throwing them all together.

The pièce de résistance was this cream harness that I snagged out of Mark's workshop; I thought it integrated really well with the other pieces and gave some geometry and structure to the outfit. I showed it here without the vest just so you could get a better look at it, but I did wear the vest all day at work so that the harness just barely peeked out.

Vest: Adrienne Landau

I'm a huge fan of all the leather pieces Mark makes, but the cream color of this harness really highlights the geometry of the piece. I love how it pops against the darker background. And I, too, want to pet your shoulders.

ooh, this is tres cute!
I love the harness especially. It pulls it all together so well.

I've been following you blog for about a month now and I just wonder--you must have a MASSIVE clothing and boot collection, so where or how do you store it all?? I imagine you have a whole bedroom just for clothing? :D

Audi, I'm convinced you could never look thrown together. You are a master of layers and proportions, and this ensemble is no exception. I adore that vest on you... and ooh la la that harness is FAB! And the legs for days situation you've got going on is icing on the cake.

So luxurious and edgy at the same time. Fabulous.

I'm amazed that that furry vest is getting so much wear! I figured it'd be too warm. Glad I'm wrong.

This group of pieces is just amazing together. Those light neutrals, the structure and flow ... masterful.

Woohoo, the perfect runway to work day look. I love the soft colours and your fur is fantastic.

i just love the cream, ivory, white, gray, brown all together - then all those textures!! even suede + leather. yum.

but my fave is wearing something kinda kinky and just letting it peak out a bit. heehee! much more fun that way!

Sal: "I figured it'd be too warm." i love the ideas people have about san francisco - essentially, it is NEVER too warm in sf ;) take care, steph
