my style

Luxe Tux.

tuxcover

A leather mini skirt can be somewhat challenging to dress down if you’re wearing it during the day. I always stick to easy pieces that can go from day-to-night hence this vest and skirt.

Last week was spent at the office working on new designs and shipping orders but had a few showroom visits so I made sure to amp up my leather skirt without looking too over the top. This awesome vintage tee was the perfect piece to dress it down but I wanted a statement piece that would complete the whole look of easy-chic.

This oversized tuxedo vest has been one of my favorite buys recently and it’s been so versatile so I knew that it would be the icing on the cake for this tee and leather skirt combo…. and the mules? Well, they were the added bonus!

How would you dress up with out really dressing up your favorite vintage tee?

    Your feet look so cute in those mules. I think the key to pulling off mules is to have cute, petite ankles.

    Jules-
    You’re such an inspiration! I just launched my fashion blog in early October and you were my number one gal I found myself coming back to for fun ideas on here and IG. Although, I’m still learning, and creating, I’m having a blast! Thanks so much for that AND for this website! I LOVE it–

    P.S. Keep up the good work on pairing high end with more reasonable end… I find so many fashion bloggers who get “big” and start only blogging about their more expensive pieces. (As, I’m sure its easy to do).. who wouldn’t want to show that off?! ;) But I appreciate that I can always come here and find something I love that’s not thousands of dollars.. (Although, I do like those higher priced things too). Ha! You know what I mean… two thumbs up!

  112. Akeber Halabi Comment #114

    Querida Sincerely, Jules: Bella sin duda. El reloj que mencionas es el modelo para hombres verdad? Agradezco si puedes responder porque quiero comprarlo por internet y no quiero equivocarme:) Que continue tu éxito.
