Red & Black Week: Day Three

Everyone, everyone at work, called this the Matador, and it's all in the jacket! I found it in the sale rack at Forever 21; their sizes are cut to flatter a shorter woman than I, especially when it comes to sleeves and hemlines, so I didn't expect it to fit or flatter. Was I wrong!
It's black lace lined with scarlet, cropped and gently fitted, and it had hook-and-eye fastenings at the throat which I promptly removed. It's versatile and elegant, and folds up easily so I can take it to work in my purse during hot summer transits.

Altered Target blouse, Forever 21 jacket, thrifted Cato skirt, Talbots hose, Payless shoes.


  1. Despite it's odd lenght, that skirt is really elegant, and so it the whole outfit, actually. Your jacket is beautiful. :)

  2. I never would have thought matador... But I can see it a little bit now that you say it. It looks so glamorous on you!

  3. Wow, stylish. The short jacket and the long skirt is a really good combination, well done :). The jacket is beautiful. I have to take that idea with black lace and scarlet fabric to sew something for me!

    1. Please post when you do- I'd love to see what you do. (Why was I not following your blog earlier?... anyway, I am now! :))

  4. You look really elegant and lovely. :)
