Concrete Catwalk // Down to Business

i wore this outfit to speak to a fashion portfolio class at JCCC last week
and then to a pull for a trend segment i did for a local news station,
and i must say that i really enjoyed playing around with the proportions and styling
of a trend that i've seen all over the blogosphere recently.
i am always endlessly drawn to menswear inspired pieces,
but they don't always make it to the forefront of my outfit rotation, you know?
that might have to change, because the buttoned up silk blouse
and the pleated microplaid trousers with a crisp crease
made me feel like a million bucks.
i think i'd call it my very own version of a power suit.
best of all: the entire look (except for the jewelry, bag & shoes) is thrifted/vintage.
necklace & bag - j. crew
booties - forever21
*also! i've got another style segment tomorrow morning on FOX4 news at 7:45am... i'll be featuring wide-legged denim and 70s styling. if you're in KC set your DVR's and if not, feel free to check out some of my past segments on TCC TV!*
