Comme des Garcons Jacket, A Dose of Ruffles


I just realized that the ‘official’ white wearing season is literally over and I haven’t styled any white pieces. So I had to sneak one in and paired with this jacket 'dose of ruffles' that would have fit right in at the Comme des Garcons themed Met Gala 2017.

I read somewhere that all Mei Kawakubo wanted was to make clothes that nobody had ever seen. She wanted extreme beauty. This avant-garde jacket fits that description and is a great example of a non conformist style by her protege Junya Watanabe. 

The jacket is such a statement piece so I chose to keep the look simple and fresh with a clean white skirt. Bold colors and textured pieces paired with whites generally ooze elegance anyhow. Unfortunately I can't link it because its one of those unique and hard to find pieces and I don't believe very many of it were made to start with. 

I have to admit that this skirt is a recent fave because of its light airy feeling as scorching temperatures sweep through California this week. We hit 112 degrees today and tomorrow is supposed to be a couple degrees hotter! So much for loving Summer!

A pair of black sandals previously styled here added some edginess while the bag played up this look and made for a fun update.

Hope you all had a great week. Mine was busy but busy is great! 
Enjoy your three day weekend!

Thanks for the messages and inquiries here.

  22. fashion is finally recognizing what we always knew - a lot of us women are shaped like, well... women! This often means more curves than seen on the average catwalk model.

  27. Quite a fabulous dose of ruffles I’d say, and I LOVE it! This plays perfectly well into my previous post on architectural fashion as “wearable structure”! You look amazing and your styling/pairing choice is impeccable...as usual!

  28. The jacket should definitely be the statement piece. Love the white underneath. I hate the white labor day rule :P Especially in climates where it stays warmer longer.

  39. This jacket is very much the statement piece! The designer certainly succeeded in creating something new & fresh. The massive ruffles are so eye-catching....I do like the white skirt and heels you styled it with. Summer always flies by...and no reason why we should give up white if you ask me. This combo is stunning dear. You look absolutely beautiful.

    Sorry for the long absence, I was in hospital. I would have preferred a vacation to a two week stay in a hospital, but at least my hospital room had a sea view. :):)
