WIW: Choir Presentation

No...I cannot sing! I am narrating a special Christmas Choir Presentation being performed by my church:). It was presented at church this morning and we have another presentation this afternoon at an aged care facility:)

A la Shannon I am trying to remember to snap my accessories too.

The choir are all wearing red, black and white so I decided to try and continue the theme. These are my summer weight slouchy black pants, worn with a thrifted black and white abstract print blouse and my new black jacket http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....opped-pant

I am very pleased with this jacket. It drapes perfectly, has a slouchy look and feel and has a modern folded over style lapel that sits away from my chest area allowing a little more skin to show. interestingly, the sleeves are actually tapered! This makes them quite easy to scrunch:) I may now retire two black jackets that are no longer quite what I'm wanting.

Thanks for looking. And I do hope you are having a fab weekend.

    This looks wonderful! I love the purse also.

    Sorry I missed the original post on the jacket. It is lovely! I really like the peep toe shoes too.

  • MNsara replied 9 years ago

    I missed the original jacket post and need to look it up, but I like what I see here :-)

    I have some ruched sleeve jackets and like the way they expose the forearm and bracelets/watch without any work on my part!

    Nice blouse too, so the lovely red croc bag can be a standout!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago

    Oh this is all kinds of lovely!

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous!! It is amazing the way they are making tapered sleeves on some of the newer jackets. So helpful!

    WHEN did that gorgeous bag appear and from whence does it come? I want one!!

    Deborah, please forgive me for chuckling when you said you were going to continue the colour theme. Honestly, if anyone is equipped to do that, you are!!

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Suz, ha ha I do forgive you:)

    That "clutch" is in fact an IPad case. I bought it specifically to use as a clutch because I couldn't find a "real" clutch that looked like this. And I wanted a zipper not a fold over:). It's from one of our stores here called Portmans:)

    I had thought about using an iPad case as a clutch, glad to see someone do it! Your black jacket is awesome, where did you get it? I have been looking for one, and not finding anything.

    So fab!

  • Thistle replied 9 years ago

    Love the red bag with the outfit. Such a wonderful and rich color.

  • Parsley replied 9 years ago

    Aha! I was going to ask if that gorgeous clutch was an iPad case, and then I read your response that it was! I am so eager to copy that idea- it's brilliiant!

    You look great in your black, white, and pop of red, Deborah! That abstract print top is very cool! And why, oh why can't I find some slouchy pants like that here? Love them!

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    Jennifer (Shiny) did that too, with a leopard print Ipad case from banana republic. I was very tempted to do the same but they don't seem to have it online in Canada.

    What a great idea; I am going keep my eye open for the perfect one. Thank you, Deborah!

  • catgirl replied 9 years ago

    Perfect. Love the jacket on you!

  • tayleigh replied 9 years ago

    Love the outfit - you look so put-together :) The iPad case as a clutch idea is such a good idea too!

  • Joy replied 9 years ago

    Everything about this outfit looks wonderfulo to my eye. I really like your blouse too. Is the pattern an animal print?

  • Amy replied 9 years ago

    You always look so elegant!

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Joy it's not animal print, more like paint splatter...very abstract:)

    Amy...so nice to see you! You looked gorgeous at the meet up:)

  • Amy replied 9 years ago

    Thanks Deborah! Nice to see you again too :)

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Sorry Karie I missed your question. I'm in Australia and I bought the jacket at a store called "Katies". I have a couple of their jackets and they wear well:). I have been looking for something like this for about 12 months:)

  • sarah replied 9 years ago

    How accommodating of the choir to wear your colors! You look lovely - those peep-toes are terrific.

    Great outfit. Love the thifted top and fab red bag.

    Love! Very polished/hip. I keep hearing about using the ipad case as a clutch, I might have to copy- great idea.
