Red Wine Experiments

"I have never done it before..."
I am pretty sure I made a statement like this in my blog not once at this point since I find myself trying more and more things I haven't done before.

At this time, I combined two things I haven't done before. I don't think I ever owned a leather jacket even in those days back in my home country when everyone around me, with almost no exception, had one. But I found The Around Town faux leather jacket at my long time favorite shop Christopher and Banks at 50% off (check it out in a few lovely colors here). I loved the variety of colors (and I actually liked a few colors ;), the amount of details and the feminine lines of this garment. It was very nice to touch and flattering on my figure, and I decided to finally get a leather jacket, even though (or even better?) it was a faux leather jacket. $30 seemed like a very good deal to me!

Here is another experiment for me. I wanted to make a statement with this jacket, but add a touch of edge to it. And so I went for red tights... I can safely say that I have never in my life had red tights before. And especially red tights with a design on them! (I did try green tights though!) The clutch (which was first featured here) and jasper bracelet completed the outfit that day. 

I also thought that my favorite Chico's earrings would echo the trim of the jacket and add some brassy warmth - you know me and warmth, we go way back. :)

  1. I really like this post! I'm not used to seeing you in this color, but it really does work for you, big time, I think. And the tights are a great touch that I never would have thought of ... and really enjoy. Style ... amazing what we can change with a few key choices ... Excellent!

  2. It was such a fun photo shoot, thank you! :)

  3. Natalia! Love your red wine look! It's very flattering. Thanks so much for linking up. Cheers!
