NotAS - but I have this on hold...

I've always had trouble shopping NAS because we don't get much F/W here, and now that I'm moving about all day I can wear my warmies even less. SO, even though there are a few things that have me drooling, the only thing I am considering is this Haute Hippie printed silk anorak - marked down to Rack price, summer weight, can be worn as a jacket or dress, and it's got this crazy ram skull print in the back that feels very McQueen in a way. I'm leaning toward returning a cotton/leather-sleeved jacket I bought and getting this instead. Thinking the lighter weight will be more wearable? Sorry no pix on me, but the coworker whose style sense I trust most gave it a thumbs up.

    Very cool, and it looks like a great fit for your climate and your style.

    AWESOME print and jacket shape.    Question though, do you like decorative outer layers? This is something I'm struggling with a bit as I consider a bomber jacket with an elaborate print. Does the fact that there is pattern (no matter what it is) reduce your likelihood of wearing it, or do you have enough monotone and minimalist under layers that it will work out well?

    I opened the picture before I read anything. My first thought was that looks so much like Rae!

    LOVE. My first thought when seeing the thumbnail was McQueen.

  • Adelfa replied 7 years ago

    I love it.

  • Alexandra replied 7 years ago

    That looks great!

  • kkards replied 7 years ago

    Woe,I really like this. And it looks like it would work with jeans, dress pants, and everything in between.

    Totally Rae!

    Another big yes!

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    *clapping* Yay, I tried it on again today, and I still love it. Passersby who saw it on also asked if it was McQueen, so I'm considering it about 99% off, haha. Hopefully I can do the exchange tomorrow!

    Very cool. Rabbit does bring up a good point, however. But it suits you :)

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    You must have this!!

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    It is very Rae! I hope you get it.

    This McQueen look-alike is so totally you and definitely you must do this...You will be really sad if you leave it behind..JMO

    It's beautiful, and although I hear what Rabbit is saying, since it is black and white I think it will be easier to wear and mix. Gorgeous, very McQueen. Feels so you. I hope you will keep.
