50 In Misc


When I was in NY last week, I stopped by the Vest shot 

Full shot 

It's called the Yoko shirt, and the cotton one like I'm wearing were all 30% off last week.  I have it in ecru (above) and black.  But they also made the shirt in great shades of blue and grey too.  I love it.

Back shot 

I love how the pleating goes all the way around the shirt, and the length is perfect.

Worn with old skinny Levis, and Ann D triple lace boots.

    I love that shirt! Agree- love that the pleating goes the whole way down the shirt. It has this old world feel about it. Great find!

    It looks so comfortable and pretty! I love the way it looks with those boots, too.

    it’s a great shirt and the Ann D. are definitely the best boots ever!
    You can stay simple without falling into simplicity because of the good detail and i really appreciate that!
    I’ll be in NYC in June and it seems there’re a lot of places i’ve got to go πŸ˜‰

    Great shirt! It seems like it’d be really versatile… I’d love to see it with those Givenchy thigh-high cowboy boots you have (ya know, the ones I’ve been DREAMING about and obsessively ebay-ing ever since I first saw them on your blog last year :D)

    Those boots are beyond amazing. If only they weren’t sold out and impossible to find.
    Your house, btw, is beautiful. At least from your pictures. I love your blog; I go on it everyday for wardrobe inspiration.

    I have a feeling that if you put the amazing triple lace Ann boots on enough, you may push them into a re-issue. I am craving for a pair of my own, sigh. And it can only be a matter of time before you draw Christopher Ross out of retirement! Blog power.

    i love shirts like that… comfy, pretty and they go with everything… it’s like the not-so-basic basic.
    and i love your ann d boots!

    Who made that vest? I’ve been coveting one like it!
    P.S. Love your style!

    Love the entire outfit! I just wanted to know what size shirt you’re wearing and if it run big or tts? Oh and I would like to steal your shoes πŸ™‚

    I still want those boots!!!!! Maybe one day, some will make their way to me. I am patient.

    Mel–I got a medium in the shirt–it is a big shirt, but I would not say it runs big–hope that makes sense.

    What I love about this is that the designer has taken a very classic shape/ garment, and added those quirky little details such as the pleating to make it look amazing! I also like the fact that it plays with proportion.. And those Ann D boots are really quite extraordinary. Again, its the detail that makes them so eyecatching. I’m assuming the boots must take ages to put on though, with all those laces?

    Vivian–I purchased my mongolian lamb fur vest last year from an import company. I don’t remember the name, but I don’t recommend them anyway–it took like 2 months to get here, and smelled of lemon pledge before it finally aired out.

  • judy@judyaldridge.com

    Ros–they don’t actually, they have zippers on the inside and the outside–they’re fairly practical.

    I love this outfit! I’m such a sucker for those kind of shirts, so great with the summer. And I love how you “anchor down” such a floaty top with the Ann D’s.

    I’m always looking for shirts like that! It’s really hard to find cool ones that are unisex.

    It’s the first time I comment. You are amazing. You look so elegant in everything, even the most casual look. You truly are an inspiration.

    It’s like a cross between a poet shirt and artist’s smock. Anyway, I just love it! And the detailing- it always irks me when something looks good from the front w/ just the right detailing, and the back is an afterthought…always cheapens a garment, in my opinion. But this is beautifully crafted.
    CP Shades…something rings a bell, unless I dreamed it…Pretty sure I had some CP Shades in the late 80s, linens or cottons…Great stuff! I didn’t know they were still around.

    I love that furry vest you are wearing. It looks so warm. I love how there is sectional pleating in the back and front the of blouse.
    As for the Ann Demeulemeester boots…. *sigh* they’re are just so gorgeous.

    love the pleats on your shirt. and i can NEVER get bored of those boots πŸ˜€

    Oh, that makes sense. Because I was thinking otherwise it would take an age to put them on with all those laces!

    The shirt looks a bit like a nightgown. I wouldn’t wear it. BUT I love the vest and the boots.

    THE CP shades?!? Now that is a blast from the past. Loved it then, but can’t see much now cos the website is sadly lacking in designs.

    Oh those boots. Sigh. I also really like how the pleating continues on the back- it’s a nice detail. You look great!

    that shirt is lovely! it reminds me of an old-fashioned night shirt with the fabric, color and the pleats. i’ve never heard of that boutique, and now i want to stop by.
    also, i had a question- do you know what color your ann d boots are? are they the purple ones? i have a pair in the mail to me and have never really seen the color! i’m hoping they’ll look like your gorgeous pair. ~joelle

    Is there anyone out there that knows where I can get the Yoko shirt in grey, size Small? It can be a store display or even gently used, doesn’t need to be new.

    That is actually an amazing statistical info amongst the individuals who are searching for it. Its very fairly practical as nicely as uncommon data supplied in web-sites. Wonderful perform.

    CP Shades’ factory is in Sausalito, California, which is AMAZING, considering how expensive creating clothes are in the states. and the fabrics are incredibly soft and well made. πŸ™‚
