Bloggers downtown


New camera, new jacket, plain old me.

That's the second tailcoat I buy, the first being my Comme des Garçons for H&M that I wore back then. However, my favourite ever has to be the one Alex has on in this Streetgeist pic. How cool is that boy?

And again, some fun trivia:

Did you know that tailcoats were initially normal coats that had their front cut off in order to enable the wearer to ride a horse? Ditto for the slit on the back. Over the years they've come to be considered formal wear, but that's how it all begun.

Now that I think about it, I guess it makes total sense to wear my tailcoat with my red horse print scarf...

Tailcoat, NOLITA via this bazaar. Grey and white stripes long sleeve tee, MANGO. Carrot pants, ZARA. Horse print scarf, via SAIA. Aviator sunglasses (close-up here) RAYBAN. Gunmetal grey ballet flats, MALOLES secondhand via BOHBO. Tan tote bag, MANGO.

Extra bonus, the backstage:

Our friend Pelopidas not only escorted Elena and me to the bazaar, but he also shot and tweeted us taking our outfit pics. We're now in the process of convincing him to start his own fashion blog, he's a natural.
