I miss school.  I miss the days when a school bag was my permanent accessory and boys were the perennial topic.  So, I have taken the liberty to declare this week as a back to school week!  There are a lot of nice school outfits out there but I have my eyes set on this Redgrave Retro Jacket.  I stumbled across it in their men’s department.  The sporty pinstripe finishing is undoubtedly clean and academic.

I paired the jacket with a sheer black blouse for a mischievous feel and a black flexi skirt that comes with a brown belt.  Then, I layered a pair of white knee high knitted socks, added a pair of artistic brown pumps and completed the look with a pair of glasses (frame colored in Sienna).

The ETD Luth Tawny (Burnt) hair just enhances the freshness of this look.

I like to thank Decoy Nagy for his inputs on this ensemble.

It’s a sunny and bright day, a good day to step out for tea, and a nice excuse to leave those jeans and put on some ladylike clothing to feel feminine. To create a ladylike ensemble, I begin with a Last Call low neck lace blouse that comes with a pair of lacy cuffs.  I have chosen this blouse because of its overall finish, which is sleek and sexy.  I then paired the blouse with a well textured grey pencil skirt from Ingenue and layered with a pair of black nylon stockings.  To complete the feminine look, I put on a pair of black pumps and accessorized with a light grey thin belt with gold buckle (modified and textured myself), a stylish ivory and lace clutch, a gold and white necklace, and a nice wool Jessica hat from ETD (hair included).   

Looking and feeling completely ladylike, I am ready to enjoy the sun, my tea, and my day.

This is what June Dion has in mind when she was hand drawing the textures, including the buttons, for the Bare Rose Flare Coats.  Being a Tokyo girl myself, I find the winter here a little too chilly to wear just a coat so I have added a white polo neck shirt to the red coat emphasizing the wintry feeling.  Then I layered with black tights and warmed my feet with a pair of ankle boots. These are my favorite ankle boots, and the best matching shoes for this outfit because of it’s black leather.  The gold buckle and red sole on the boots give the overall outfit another touch.  Tokyo girls love accessories too, and to add chicness to the outfit I accessorized with a black & brown fur cape and a pair of leather gloves. I am thrilled to find the fur hat (comes with the blonde hair) that matches the overall outfit perfectly.

So it’s cold outside, but I am ready to hit the street with charm.
