Some clothes need to come with instructional booklets. This Ann Demeulemeester vest been in my possession since 2009 but I still have no idea how to wear it the way the designer intended it to be worn. I just throw it up, let it land on me and tie the strings together. True story.

The goal of the day was to channel some Ann.D with the asymmetrical skirt (circa s/s 2010) and Ann.D lookalike sandal boots from Jeffrey Campbell which is still one of my favorite pair of shoes to date. This pair is in fact my second pair (yes, I bought 2 of the same pair of shoes) cause I wore the first one to death. Let’s hope this pair will last me a couple more years.

I have to admit I was feeling pretty great about the outfit until I saw the photos, I think looked really stumpy. I also hope no one thought I was trying to pull a Jolie that day. Higher heels should fix the stumpy leg problem I hope. My boyfriend has also done me a great favor by keeping my face out of focus, he seems to reallllllly like my Helmut Lang top and necklace (I see what you did there.)

Black Outfit Breakdown:

  • Asymmetrical Bra top: Helmut Lang
  • Draped Vest: Ann Demeulemeester
  • Asymmetrical skirt: Taobao
  • Ann Demeulemeester replica shoes: Jeffrey Campbell for LF stores

    Thanks. I still wish I knew how to wear them though. Looking at the runway photos gave me NO clue whatsoever. :<

    Hello! I just discovered your blog the other day and am thoroughly enjoying sifting through all of your posts. As someone who has always relied on black as the primary foundation of her wardrobe, it’s refreshing to see such innovative texture and fabric combinations. You and your colleagues here at Monoxious are an inspiration!
