The waist coat…

IMG_4006

This is for the official days…chic with some room to be a little bit jumpy. I am somewhat skeptical on the choice of top, I would have gone for a plain blouse/shirt… though this human who gives a final say on my choice of girly stuff, thinks otherwise 🙂

The waist coat is a little reminder to self that formal dressing to the office is necessary every once in a while… (seeing as I am rarely in formal wear). It completes the package and gives the perfect statement at work

As for the choice of shoes, that is totally driven by comfort, a pair that I can walk in through out the day without being forced to carry an extra pair.

Final look, just perfect ! What are your thoughts…

    I absolutely love the Ladies’ suit and precisely, the waist coat substitution for the Suit blazer in this one.

    1. Thank you…and you are always welcome…

  8. Love love waistcoats! You’ve pulled this one off.
    If the fit is right and the narrow part falls in the right place(not too short or too long..just on the waist) it’s a sure winner. I like them with wide-legged pants. Very figure flattering IMO.
    Great post!

    The right fit is key-too short or too long, you can miss the essence of the waist coat. When the narrow part is at the waist area and fitting and the armholes are the right size, you have a sure winner. I wear them with wide-legged trousers. Quite figure flattering.

    Great post and blog.
