Perhaps the sexy number I found came from the closet of someone with a similar Michael infatuation. A mere couple of bucks and it was mine. It needed some minor alteration in the back seam as it was a touch big, but my gal pal Noa came over and we tightened it up, (something a good tailor can do for about $10) and got to work throwing it over anything and everything.
What we realized right off the bat, was that this length and cut are extremely versatile. It can be worn over mini skirts, jeans or leggings, and it takes on a whole new life.
Here was our inspiration look: This little Julien Chambon number...
We borrowed the Hub's button down shirt and tie, threw on some American Apparel, high waisted bootie shorts, and some killer boots.
(OK, truth be told, I'd never realistically wear this out anywhere, I'd probably pair it with some dark skinny's and heels, but we just couldn't resist a photo comparison. P.S. - how cool is it that I have a girlfriend I can literally play dress up with?!)
So here's our spin on this look. From Balmain, to All-Mine. And jacket price: $2.00!
