WIW: 3-in-1

Three new items in one outfit - squeeeee!!!!!

First up, is my new asymmetrical one sleeved drapey kinda-kimono-esque top from Danier Leather. I've bought jackets and handbags there for years now but never paid too much attention to their clothing once that started showing up in the stores in the last two years. Well I've now bought two blouses from there and am thrilled. Their items are slightly edgy and IMHO fit many different body types. Definitely a new clothing store on my radar.

The top has a cotton-lycra full tank top underneath and then has this chiffon overlay on the top in shades of black and grey. I've paired the top with my next new item - black NYDJ jeggings with a faux suede front panel below the knee (I wish details showed up in black). They may be a little long for some folks but I quite like the scrunch at the ankle.

I've popped my black leather blazer on top of that and then for footwear, my third new item. Introducing my black leather Clarks Chelsea boots….oh so comfy.

To finish off the outfit, I chose my black leather handbag, silver bangle and wedding band and black/white specs. 

So what do you think? Does it all work together? Would love your feedback on the new pieces and as always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Jacket, handbag, blouse: Danier Leather
Pants: NYDJ
Boots: Clarks

    This is simply my opinion, but this is one of your very best outfits! Of course it's right up my ally so I might be a little biased;). That blouse/tunic is so fab. The fit is perfect and I adore the abstract pattern. Each element of this outfit works brilliantly. I would want to wear this every day ha ha;). Stunning!

    I love it! I love almost everything you wear, Shannon so you might think I exaggerate, but I promise, I'm very honest, so I will always tell you when I disagree. The top is elegant and arty, and from what you've written lately I think it is in line with your style. The pattern is fab, and it works so well under the topper. I love the jeggings, and I wish I could see the panels, too. The Chelsea boots are classics that you will wear into the ground, I'm sure. You look terrific today, and it shows that you feel good in your clothes. Enjoy your weekend!

    Love it! So edgy with the jacket too.

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    I just knew Debs will like it:-). And, I like it, too! Great pieces, and great outfit! Very very edgy!

    How does the blouse fair under that jacket and then coming out after the sleeve has (I assume) been scrunched up? I like the jeggings--- I might shorten by just a little or slim the legs for slightly more "stacked" scrunching. I love it with the jacket, and my only reservations without is that I'd be cold-- but I know you have a hot office! You will have to report on bootie comfort and wear them with something more contrasty so we can see them on you!

    I'm singing along with Joan Jett as I read your post today.  The new top is all kinds of fun --- with a bit of arty edge.  The jacket is classic and rocker chic all at once.  I'm really glad you found some comfy black booties -- these look like they'll be good for your feet while giving a streamlined look to your outfits.

    Great pieces, Shannon!  Love all of them.  I wear my leather/mixed leggings long like that too, and like you, prefer them that way.  It adds a bit of "warmth" somehow,plus I think a hit of luxury to have the extra length there.  (especially for work or dressier situations).  Love that top from Danier - I was eyeballing the new pieces too and may pick one or two up today!

  • bj1111 replied 5 years ago

    i would totally wear this...so i guess i luff it.

  • Linda replied 5 years ago

    Brilliant!  It's your best outfit, ever! (IMHO) I'm thinking about getting the Clarks Chelsea boots.  Are they comfortable enough for doing a long long walk?

  • Kirstjen replied 5 years ago

    Tough looking outfit.  Very cool!

  • LAR101 replied 5 years ago

    Love this! YLF

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    I LOVE the outfit with the jacket. #3 and #4 are killer. You wear black and grey with the best of them. Nice to see Danier make non-leather pieces so well. xo

  • Peri replied 5 years ago

    For some reason...duh, because you are FAB...I seem to want all your clothes! I wanted that top when you first posted it because for me I thought it would be a great ballroom top. Now I really really want it!

    I looked on the website a few days ago and it says call for non-Canada shipping. I haven't yet. I don't even know how that price converts. Have you heard anyone talk about US shipping? I think Danier is Canadian revenge for Nordstrom!

    This is like triple wow to the wow. Your happiness just oozes through the image. You have hit your style groove

  • AviaMariah replied 5 years ago

    Rock and roll was my first thought!  Why oh why is there not a Danier in the US????  Better for my pocket book.  This is a fab, fab outfit and I can you're enjoying it by the look on your face.  :)

    Love everything about this outfit. Edgy and cool comes to my mind.

  • rabbit replied 5 years ago

    Really love this outfit on you, and the elements are great.  For me personally I'm unsure about that much scrunch at the ankles because it breaks up the sleek leg line to my eye so if I was wearing them I would probably do a turn-up on the inside of the pant if I didn't want to shorten them.

  • Elizabeth P replied 5 years ago

    Shannon, this is AH-MAZING on you.  I agree with a few others that a turn up on the pants would give a sleeker look.  But maybe don't hem, to keep options open.  And YAY for finding comfy stylish boots.

    I have this top on it's way to me :)  although now I see it on you it looks more grey than white, and white is more what I'm after.  So we'll see.

    LOVE! Everything about this outfit is wonderful...including your big happy smile... says it all really. :)

  • misapb replied 5 years ago

    flattering and fashion-forward.  two thumbs up!  would like a skinnier profile on the pants, but that is a very minor point.  You look so hip!

  • KikiG replied 5 years ago

    So you and so, so flattering! Wow! You hit a home run with that top, and the way you styled it rocks.  

  • Sharon replied 5 years ago

    What a fantastic outfit! The pieces are great individually and even better combined! I love the asymmetrical top.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    Absolutely stunning on you. It's not often that a dramatic top like that will look equally good under a jacket, but in this case, I almost prefer the jacket versions! An amazing and inspired combination. 

  • goldenpig replied 5 years ago

    Love #3/4! You are my polished edgy B/W inspiration! This outfit is right up my alley!

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    Fab new additions and I can see how they all fit with your goals....

  • Neel replied 5 years ago

    Oh my! I love this Shannon! Absolutely gorgeous! The blouse is super pretty! I wonder how the faux leather panel on the pants works with the scrunch? Its hard to see the details in the pic. It does look good from where I sit.

  • Nicola replied 5 years ago

    I've been meaning to say how flattering this outfit is on you. Every time I've seen it on the forum my eye has been drawn to it. Uber fab.

  • Robidi replied 5 years ago

    This top is one of my favorites...gorgeous outfit!

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Your pose and expression in the second photo are fun and dramatic. Love it all. The flowy volume of the top looks wonderful spilling out from under your jacket, much like the shirts under sweaters in Angie's blog post.

  • columbine(erin) replied 5 years ago

    You wear black and silver/grey so well!
