WIW - Lousy Pantyhose Edition

Aside from the problems I had with my pantyhose today, I really liked my outfit. I took inspiration from a couple of very stylish YLFers: goldenpig and ChristyG.

I always loved goldenpig's ink blue jacket that she found at White House Black Market. I wandered in there recently and lo! it was on sale. I couldn't resist.

I didn't quite know what to wear with it though, until I saw Christy's fabulous blue/black/white outfit yesterday. It never crossed my mind to wear blue and black together, but I really like it!

Comments appreciated as always...and thanks for the inspiration!!!

    WOW! K worthy!!!! What a gorgeous outfit, and how great to find the jacket on sale. It's fantastic on you and seems to fit so well with your developing style. Love it!

    Truly, no one would have noticed what was going on with your pantyhose when they saw you looking like this!

    haha....they would have wondered what was WRONG with that woman who was walking funny, though :)

    Thanks, Suz!

    Love the blue and black together, especially with that peek of print. Boo to lousy hose!

  • Sara L. replied 9 years ago

    Great outfit! I wouldn't have thought of putting blue and black together either (in my head that equals 'bruise'), but your outfit looks great.

  • Sarah A replied 9 years ago

    I really like the crisp clean silhouette you've created as well as the blue and black pairing... Sorry your hose didn't cooperate today :-(

    Fabulous Amy! I'm crazy in love with blue and black together these days. The jacket looks smashing on you!

  • Joy replied 9 years ago

    The blue jacket with black looks wonderful! Inspiring.

  • shevia replied 9 years ago

    Love that jacket on you! Great combination with the black and print - can see how you were inspired and how you totally made it your own.

    Great outfit Amy. That shade of blue is perfect for you and it works so well with the black skirt.

  • sarah replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous, Amy! I've become a big fan of blue and black together, as well.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    What a lovely jacket and outfit on you! That jacket fits you perfectly and what a great color on you! I have always been a fan of indigo and black together!

  • Mo replied 9 years ago

    I can't stand how fabulous that jacket is!! I thought it was long sold out. I must own one. I must. (yes, I'm crazed over it!) Who would notice something like pantyhose when you're dressed like this?!

  • christieanne replied 9 years ago

    I can see why you were stalking that jacket - great!! Love the color combination too.

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Just stunning! I adore ink blue and black together. This silhouette is devine on you Amy. Sorry about the hose, but seriously you look amazing.

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    Wow, Amy, you look so delightful! Love the fun peplum frill with the very polished look of blue and black, plus the little pop of print at the neckline and the boots, which set it apart from the herd. Gorgeous! And love the neckline being so face-framing, and that blue so awesome with your pale skin that your face is the focus here, no question. I too seriously doubt anyone would be noticing your hose here!

  • Beth Ann replied 9 years ago

    Amy -- I think navy blue is a very undervalued color -- classic and refined, but with rich and friendly to a lot of skin tones. This is beautiful, and it has the bit of fun that you are known for while still remaining office appropriate. The hose incident sounds worthy of Lucille Ball! Try pants tomorrow!

  • Scarlet replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous! Good for you for getting that jacket!

  • christy replied 9 years ago

    Wow - how fun to take a small part in such a terrific outfit! :) This looks great on you - you wear this silhouette so well. That is such a great jacket and I really should not know that it's on sale (I already have a blue jacket, I already have a blue jacket, I already have a blue jacket! LOL!) Bummer about the hose though. :(

  • goldenpig replied 9 years ago

    I almost missed this post--hidden under an unassuming pantyhose title!

    Squeee! Waving at my ink blue jacket twin! (Triplet actually, Andrea has this too!) You look AMAZING in this jacket, and I love it with the black skirt and black boots. So stylish. Hose, what hose? No one is going to notice when you are wearing that jacket--you look GORGEOUS in it! Yay!!!

  • Katiepea replied 9 years ago

    I hope you won't be offended by me blowing out a virtual wolf-whistle from across the ocean and internet. You look sensational! :-)

  • Jjsloane replied 9 years ago

    This looks so great! Fantastic jacket (always had a thing for it) and so glad you found it because it looks wonderful on you.

  • lyn67 replied 9 years ago

    Perfect I too love black and ink blue recently a lot. I think it comes from YLF?:-)

  • modgrl replied 9 years ago

    Not sure what was going on with your pantyhose but the outfit is lovely from head to toe. That jacket looks like it was made for you. I love seeing how different forum members interpret the same pieces - this outfit may be inspired by others but you made it all your own.

  • Angie replied 9 years ago

    I love this outfit with you, pretty lady :)

  • rachylou replied 9 years ago

    Wait... This is a style departure. Very different. Luv the jacket!
