What Would Justine Wear (WWJW)?: Tailored to perfection.

For lack of a better title for this new recurring post, I've decided on WWJW. (I hope that's not offensive to anyone, oy.)

The pictures of what I actually wore really are from today-- the pictures of what I wanted to wear are from a week ago, when I first got the Anthropologie Immutable Jacket in the mail. I snapped a bunch of photos with different outfits to see how I'd like it... and as you know, I love it. Despite it's flaws (i.e. poor fabric and kind of shoddy quality), it's such a versatile jacket and I've been so desperately searching for one, so it's staying with me. This was my favorite creation of my mini-photo shoot that day, and although I haven't exhausted this jacket's possibilities, the fantasy outfit is one of my favorites to date. Yep... quite possibly my favorite Fetching Fashions outfit. I've been dreaming about this outfit, lovies, seriously. It's gotta be the tailored look about it... it's what I've been totally wanting to achieve lately. And on a kinda gross, humid, nasty day like today (in which I opted for comfort over a tight skirt, and probably rightfully so), there's nothing I want more than for a place to wear this ensemble. Oh well!

  1. Love the fantasy outfit AND the real outfit. I heart stripes, so that tunic is fantastic and looks gorgeous on you. And the skirt from your fantasy outfit ... sigh ...

  3. When you first featured the skirt I really liked it,but for myself, it was a skirt that wouldn't be overly wearable - you proved me wrong! Looks great, love the combination!

  9. I like how the overlay makes the skirt seem just a tad longer than it is! Great look!

    I love the way those CE's look on you. I have a pair and have yet to wear them. Do you find that the butt pockets run low?

  14. Yeah, they do sag, but somehow they still look cute on the butt! These
    are actually too tight... I was told they'd stretch but they actually
    shrunk a bit. Oh well, I love them anyway!
