whenever

Okay, I know I said that my next post would be about Imitation of Christ, but I felt compelled to share this outfit, mostly because it's been a go-to winter look for the second year in a row and I've never posted about it! This is one of those outfits that looks more stylized than it actually is - it's so easy to throw on and dress up or down, but packs a visual punch! Plus it embodies my favorite winters themes: desolation (and isolation from it), dualities, death, ghostliness.

(vintage oversized dress, horace knit from ebay, margiela x h&m boots, sock c/o hansel from basel. floral wreath on my door from a thrift store)

Margiela x H&M lucite heel boots to complement the ghostliness. The real lol here is that I bought these boots at H&M couple days ago, where the collection's boots and pumps were unceremoniously piled into the sale racks, priced at $30. Didn't take long for the prices on the Margiela pieces to be slashed to over 75% off...

I love this sweater. I've had it for years and it is dying a very slow death. Someday the bottom knitted band will detach from the rest of the knit completely. While I could mend it, new holes would pop up and take its place. It seems really fitting to let this thing live its life until it can't go on any longer.

Those shoes are amazing. I don't think any H&M even remotely close to Ohio carries the designer collabos though. Bummer because I really NEED that candy wrapper clutch in my life.

I kinda wish I'd just gone at sale day, but who would have believed that it would have happened so fast and so soon! You got a serious bargain. Also totally crushing on your knit top which is pure Rodarte in my eyes.

love this, :).

which h&m did you go to? cause every store i've been to lately seems to only carry size 5 and 6. and i'm way closer to a 9 and 10.

That sweater is amazing. I recently read a book explaining how to make a dropped stitches scarf, so I think I'm gonna try and apply that to make a similar sweater once I have the yarn needed. I've wanted something like that for such a long time and didn't even remember! Thanks!

Lovely, I love the drape on the skirt, it's simple but as you said this outfit indeed packs a visual punch :)

Ria said...

omg I want that sweater even falling apart as it is. LOL about Margiela. My friend scooped hers on sale too. She doesn't know anything about Margiela either which is even funnier. I'd definitely buy em for $30...

That pale dress looks really good on you! It goes well with your hair and skin {{ give me your skin [[[ in sheets? idk whatever is easiest ]]] }}
