WIW: Stripes

Happy Monday from the land of Aus!

We are now well and truly experiencing Autumn weather and it is lovely and cool here today.

I have been wanting to wear this combination for ages and today's the day.  I have been looking for some new oversized asymetrical tops because my fave black one is looking quite tired, and I found this one and the weekend.  I am considering popping back to the store at lunchtime today to buy a duplicate in the black.

While this pairing is probably pretty typical of my style, I was inspired when I saw Beverly's outfit here http://http//www.beverlylikehi.....art-2.html

Outfit comprises; new black asymetric top, b44-esque striped skirt, opaque tights, black booties.

I have been steering clear of opaque tights over the past 12 months but I am hoping that the beige in the skirt bookends enough ith my hair to 'lighten' the look a little.

It was hard getting a good photo this morning, my face just wouldn't wake up :)  lol

Thanks for looking and your comments, and suggestions for improvement are eagerly welcomed.

xxx Deborah

    WOW!

    I had to recover from the fabosity of this outfit.
    Your dramatic black and white style at it's best. I usually don't care for the shark bite tops, but this one looks amazing on you. Your hair looks gorgeous and the angled bob looks perfect with your outfit.

    I have no suggestions for improvement, because you look perfect! I love your version of Beverly's outfit. I think the tights look good, I wore them a lot this past winter and I have light hair too.
  • Kristin L replied 7 years ago
    I love the tights with the outfit.

    Your outfit looks amazing!

    Love this on you Deborah. I think the skirt works perfectly to lighten the look:)
  • Deborah replied 7 years ago
    Thanks ladies. 

    Joy you are too kind.  I have never heard those tops referred to as shark bites:) The store called it a handerchief hem but I don't really think that is accurate.  I must admit this has not been my preferred hem style and I bought it thinking i would probably return it... but Im not:)

    Karie, I have to thank you for introducing me to Beverly's blog.  Her style resonates so much with me and between her and Angie I can always find the inspiration I need.

    Deborah, this looks fantastic. Glad its getting back to your favourite season so that we can look forward to your amazing outfits.

    My first thought was "wow". You just knocked this out of the part. You look FAB!

  • annagybe replied 7 years ago
    Love this on you.
  • hedgiehog replied 7 years ago

    Wow! You're a knockout in this outfit. Asymmetrical tops work really well on you and the skirt is just perfect! If I saw you on the street, I would think "there's a stylish, confident lady." Beautiful outfit for Monday.

    This is just stunning Deb. Arty, eclectic, elegant, sultry....THIS is your style :)
  • shevia replied 7 years ago
    I love this on you! It all works together and comes together beautifully!
  • Angie replied 7 years ago
    LOVING THE HAIR!! Wow! So stick straight and oval at the same time.

    And another killer outfit, Debs :)
  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Your hair looks absolutely stunning!!

    And as for your outfit, if this is how you welcome autumn, I can't wait for the leaves to fall! Love this top on you, and I think that the stripes in the skirt combined with your necklace, do enough to iighten the look. The tights are intentional and look beautifully rich with the booties.

    Ladies, I am writing my PRD (Performance Review and Development) Report today at work and your kind words are very therapeutic as I take a break from what a find to be a fairly tedious job. :)  I figure the task today  may be boring but at least i can look fab doing it.

  • deb replied 7 years ago

  • Ornella replied 7 years ago
    I like the inspiration, but I LOVE your outfit. The necklace makes it all extra interesting.
  • replied 7 years ago
    I love it (and your hair)! The beige in the skirt is your perfect bookend. :)
  • Day Vies replied 7 years ago
    I love how you get the proportions just right on these drapey tops. I like your version better --- it doesn't look like your top ran out of fabric ;-) 
  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago
    Gorgeous proportions (and hair), Deborah!  I think stripes add a sense of movement and energy to an outfit.  Love the skirt!
  • Deborah replied 7 years ago
    Thank you :)
    DV that's funny... I hadn't thought of it that way :)
    Not that I needed much encouragement, but your positive comments did lead me to indeed pop out at lunch and grab another black one and a light grey.
  • Lynne replied 7 years ago
    Deb, you and Beverley both look fab in this!  Soft and graphic at the same time!
  • Deborah replied 7 years ago
    Lynne, we don't see enough of you :(  Hope you are doing well.
  • Lyn D. replied 7 years ago
    At last some cooler weather!
    This looks great Deborah- I like the way you bring light to your almost all black outfits. Your hair colour becomes an accessory, and our eye is always drawn upwards.
    I have been inspired by Beverly too! 
  • CocoLion replied 7 years ago
    Wow!  Stunning!
  • ElleH replied 7 years ago

    You look great & need no improvement. If you feel you want more book ending, not that you need it, you could carry a beige bag.

  • replied 7 years ago
    Fab Deb, love it!
  • lyn67 replied 7 years ago
    Wow, Deb, how cool is your hair and outfit! Stunningly graphic and modern!
    Great assimetric top, not wonder you have triplicated it:-)
    I'm too in stripes today at work:-)
    Lynne, yes, we don't see enough of you:-(, how you're doing?
  • Hil replied 7 years ago
    That is an amazing outfit and I am now trying to figure out how to replicate it in some way! Just fabulous!
  • Mona replied 7 years ago
    Deb, simply gorgeous. i have said it before and am going to say it again. Nobody does better black than you do. The white stripes in the skirt perfectly bookend your hair.
  • pil replied 7 years ago

    Another stunner, Deborah!

  • kellygirl replied 7 years ago
    This is gorgeous, Deborah. You can do no wrong! 
  • lucyt90 replied 7 years ago
