Cowgirl

Cowgirl_Isabel_Marant_Lauryn
(From left: Topshop boyfriend cocoon coat, Stella McCartney faux-leather boots (more sizes here), Isabel Marant embroidered shirt (more sizes here and budget friendly one here), Michael Kors black watch, Joseph leather kilt-style skirt (similar here), PS11 satchel bag)

I just ordered this lovely wool cocoon coat, and though it probably hasn't even left the warehouse yet, I have already started to dream up possible ways to style it. With things I do not own - and can't really afford, obviously - cuz where would be the sense in creating outfits that are actually available to me? I'm quite sure it will prove to be the perfect staple to throw-over one of those asymmetrical minis we were looking at yesterday. In other news, the above cowgirl get-up is all my poor fashion-corrupt brain can think of right now .. however, given the price tag, I might have to wait a little longer before I get to channel my inner Wild West self. Don't let that stop you, mind! You might want to get Lucky Luke [the man who shoots faster than his shadow] to teach you some transferable skills (insert whipping out the credit card related pun), as these things sell out like hotcakes. That's it for now. I'll spare you the conclusive yihaaas, but not the free demonstration of what constitutes a pleonasm! Oops.

  1. This outfit would be perfect. The Isabel Marant shirt and Proenza Schouler PS11 have been on my wishlist for quite some time now. I also love that Topshop coat! x

    1. you hit the nail right on the head anon (not sure why you had to remain anon to say something as wise as this!) I just haven't come accross one I have fell for, hence the waiting to channel Far West self.

      It's just as Erin Wassen says: "I don’t do the whole Isabel Marant thing. I love her as a person, and I think what she does is fucking amazing, but am I going to buy into a world of a French woman selling me what I grew up with? Do you know what I mean? Am I going to sign up for that? I’m sorry, but I’m not going to spend $1,200 on a Western shirt and go back to Texas and get it for five bucks. I meannn."

      AMEN

    3. Camille, I agree with Erin Wassen statement but we must admit that Isabel Marant made the cowboy shirt look cool and trendy again. She is inspiring! However, even if you have an unlimited budget it doesn't look... smart to wear only designer clothes.
      May I add, Alexander McQueen's quote:
      "It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together."
      and say to anonymous in defense to our expensive collages that is is fun to add everything we like and make a dream outfit...that inspire our readers!

  5. Love that Erin Wasson quote, not least because when my idea of Isabel-Marant-in-real-life can capture the looks without buying the IM stuff, it ALMOST justifies the hours spent in vintage shops looking for some retired cowboy's old gear.

  6. I fell in love with that skirt from day 1, it's also in my wishlist(I even posted about it) along with the Proenza Schouler bag.
    I never saw those booties before, but I'm loving them. Regarding the cowboy shirt, I found one identical (excepting for the silkish material) to the Isabel Marant one in my trip to Barcelona in a store called El Corte Inglés. I wish that store were available everywhere because their items are so cheap and have very good quality, it's a paradise!
