WIW: Seattle YLF meetup outfit

What I really wanted to wear to the Seattle YLF meetup today was my black harem pants. But they are in the laundry basket. (I took them out briefly, and thought, no, don't be silly. You have plenty of other things to wear!)

The meetup was so much fun. It was great to see people in person and to check out some shops that I had not been into before. A big thanks to Aida for organizing the outing! Brunch at Sazerac was scrumptious.

The outfit: black skinny jeans (Eileen Fisher); black and neutrals horse print tunic w/ twisted seams (made by me); olive anorak-style coat (Laundry by Shelli Segal); taupe hobo bag (Aunts & Uncles); black sling-back Mary Janes (Think! Aida); hammered silver earrings (? probably Marjorie Baer).

Thanks for looking! Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    You make the coolest clothes, Firecracker! I would want to buy your shirt if I saw it in a store. Hope your day was as super as your outfit!

    Ooh, the tunic is so cool - and MADE BY YOU?! Amazing!!! You looked very good!

  • Alana in Canada replied 3 years ago

    That top is amazing! Good on you. 
    It was cold enough for an anorak? My goodness. 
    You look fabulous.

  • Firecracker replied 3 years ago

    Alana, too funny! It's not really an anorak (not a cold-weather one); it's a lightweight rain jacket with some anorak style features. But the weather was cool and threatening rain.

  • Debbie replied 3 years ago

    That tunic is amazing. I sew but would never dream of trying that. You look amazing. I hope you had a great time.

  • CocoLion replied 3 years ago

    Love the way this looks on you!  The jeans fit you perfectly and really show off your gorgeous toned legs.  The tunic is so beautiful, it reminds me of the AllSaints style aesthetic.  You are so creative… perhaps a stint on Project Runway is in the cards?

  • Ledonna N. replied 3 years ago

    YLF, your hand creates such beautiful garments.

  • Deborah replied 3 years ago

    I love your outfit so much Firecracker!  The tunic is amazing.  We have a label here called Whispers that do tunics in this arty style.  You are so talented!

    Lovely tunic, I really like it with the skinny jeans. You look great!

  • Sterling replied 3 years ago

    I love your shoes!!!!!  I checked the price at Nordstorms and I can't afford them, but they are gorgeous beyond belief.  I imagine that they are incredibly easy to walk in for long distances.  Am I right?

  • Diane G replied 3 years ago

    That tunic! I love it! Wow. You look great FC. I so wish I could have jetted over to the US and joined you all!

  • kkards replied 3 years ago

    you look great! love the tunic, how great to be able to envision something and  make it come to life!

  • Day Vies replied 3 years ago

    That tunic is so fabulous. WOW. I love it. The skinny jeans are the perfect set-off!

  • Firecracker replied 3 years ago

    Thanks, everyone!

    About the tunic: I saw the fabric and was so intrigued with it. I knew it would make a neat tunic or simple dress. Then I found the pattern with the twisted seam detail and decided it was a match!

    Cocolion, the tunic reminds me of AllSaints, too--thanks! I laughed at your comment about Project Runway.

    Deborah, I'll have to check out Whispers--I bet it will give me some good ideas.

    Diane, wish you could, too--it would be great to meet you!

    Sterling, I bought the shoes in 2009, I think, maybe as early as 2008, at a local shoe store. They were $100 less and a huge expense for me at the time, too. But I have worn them a lot, and yes, they are comfortable for walking, for standing in my retail jobs for 8 hours at a time. I take them on trips when I know I'm going to have to walk, like more than a mile, and want to look polished. They aren't cushy; the insole is more rigid and molded to the foot, but it's better arch support than any of my other shoes.

    The tunic is beyond fantastic - I love the detail of the twisted seams - you are indeed a talented seamstress/artist. The whole look, including your jacket sings to me... I'd duplicate in a second.

  • Marley replied 3 years ago

    Wow - the tunic is stunning!  You are really talented!  This entire outfit is wonderful!  It must have been chilly yesterday, huh?

  • shedev replied 3 years ago

    Wow, I love the tunic.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 3 years ago

    Fabulous! The tunic is absolutely gorgeous.

  • Lisa replied 3 years ago

    Fun shapes on both the tunic and the jacket.  A great casual look for a day out.

  • Susie replied 3 years ago

    You look so fab! That tunic is amazing...I am so in awe of your skills.
