Outfit Of the Day For March 21, 2013: If You Keep It Long Enough…

March 21, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day


Some people say “If you keep it long enough, it will come back in style again.” I usually answer “Not always…exactly!” However, I’m glad I kept a few pieces from a trip to Italy in 1989. My sister, my best friend and I went on a journey which included finding “The Loehman’s of Milan” where I bought this silk jacket and wide obi belt. I didn’t think of wearing them together back then, but I did today! I removed the shoulder pads from the jacket and used the belt to give its retro “big look” some shape.


Jacket: Esseduo Milan, (Italian vintage 1989). The shape of this Haider Ackermann Cardigan, now $645 is similar.

Belt: Junko Koshino, (Italian vintage 1989.) See this Maison Martin Margiela Leather and Canvas Obi Belt, $550 or this Obi Belt-Pastel Pink and Golden Peacock Feather, $95.50.

Pants: Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Contour Pant, no longer available. See these Maison Martin Margiela Casual pants, $398.


Shoes: VIVIEN LEE booties, no longer available. These Alexander Wang Mackenzie Suede and Leather Ankle Boots, $625 are very versatile.
