A Moment In...Silent Blouse in Black - Snagged off ForwardForward.com for $196.35 (Retail: $744)
It was really difficult for us to find some serious shots from this photo shoot, but we managed to do it. I really don't take myself that seriously, even if it looks like it in some photos. I am definitely a little goofy and out there in a good way. When I put this blouse on that reminds me of a cape I just couldn't stop smiling and laughing. I really felt like a superhero or batwoman in these photos. The outfit came together quite quickly, as I like my outfits to come together. I realize sometimes when I look back on old posts that some outfits didn't work for me quite as well as others, but I like taking chances. My blog is a place for me to have fun.
This top is actually a silk blouse with a cape overlayer in silk that is attached and it has some cord tie in the front. It is embarrassing for me to admit how long it took me to put this thing on the right way when it first arrived in the mail from Forward by Revolve. They had some new markdowns and I had been eyeing this designer called ...A Moment In... for ages, but the prices were pretty expensive even for my tastes. Their pieces are made in Belgium, which made them even more desirable to me. My boyfriend and I were in Antwerp and Brussels a few years ago and enjoyed the cities very much. This blouse exceeded all my expectations and it is going to be the perfect layering piece. Sheer silk is always a favorite of mine.
Since I was feeling such a superhero vibe I paired the cape blouse with some high waisted McQ leather shorts that you have seen me wear before. I love these shorts and the zippers in the front are actually just for show. There is a side zipper that is the functional one and it gets stuck sometimes. It is the tiniest little zipper and I wish it was more like the front zippers so it worked better. Miraculously the zipper zipped pretty quickly when I was in a hurry this time. I wondered why these cute leather shorts by McQ ended up on the Outnet and now I can only conclude it was the zipper that drove people crazy. These Balmain buckle boots were the last part of the outfit. The shape of them is fabulous and they look like something a superhero might wear. Again, the buckles are non-functional and these boots just slip on. They are quite comfortable and even more glamorous up close. I snagged them off the Outnet during a Balmain pop-up sale. They are a statement piece and fun to wear.
