WIW: Burgundy, navy, and blush for YLF meetup

I wore a version of Angie's Burgundy, Navy, and Blush ensemble to the YLF meetup today, for outlet shopping. I was planning to wear the burgundy (or eggplant?) jeans and sort-of blush blouse, and then Angie's ensemble gave me the idea of adding navy shoes, coat, and bag.

The outfit: Eggplant slim boyfriend jeans (Rag and Bone); bisque, eggplant, lavender, and cream floral silk georgette blouse with ruffled neck and sleeves (made by me), worn over ivory layering tee (Tees by Tina); tan belt (Trafalgar); denim ballet flats with navy patent cap toe (AGL); navy trench (London Fog); navy and tan satchel (Dooney & Bourke).

What a fun day we had at the meetup! And funny, true story:
At the Burberry store, where we started our shopping, a sales associate came up to me and complimented me on my coat, adding, "That's one of ours, isn't it?" And I thanked her and admitted it was not. Several minutes later, another Burberry sales associate came up to me and said, "Nice coat! That's one of ours, right?" And I said, "Thank you. No it's not." So we can just call this coat my Fauxberry now, right?

Thanks for looking!

    Wow! You made that darling top? It is flowy and boho with the trend ruffles, but somehow structured. The pant color is cool, too.

    Beautiful combination - the blouse is very pretty on you and I LOVE the fauxberry coat!

    Fauxberry coat is a winner, I so love when that happens, YLF Sharan:-)))

  • Beth Ann replied 3 years ago

    London Fog does a great trench, and yours look fabulous!  The color combination is a great one for you -- a mixture of deeply vibrant and gentle color.

  • Firecracker replied 3 years ago

    Thanks, everyone!
    Angie, that's quite a rating on the coat. Thank you! I am quite happy with it, despite the inconvenient lack of a hood. I know it looks more sophisticated without one. And I'm loving the length.

  • Susie replied 3 years ago

    Great color combination...that blouse is so pretty! I am in awe of your sewing skills. And the trench is so fab....let's call it Better than Burberry!

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

  • Windchime replied 3 years ago

    Your blouse is wonderful--so pretty, feminine, and on trend. And you made it yourself; I'm very admiring of your sewing skills.

    LOL about "Fauxberry"!

  • Sara L. replied 3 years ago

    I love the blouse - so pretty and the pattern is interesting.  I like the cognac belt with the blush - not something I would have thought of pairing.  Funny story about your coat.
