    The skirt has chrome snaps and chrome grommets all the way around the hem and on the tops of the pockets. It is most obnoxiously pink and shiny.

    When I am not being a total hoochie mamma or punkster, I do have a nice suit that I made last winter. It is very heavy olive-green cotton flannel. The shirt I made, also, which has a mock-turtle neck and is striped in three shades of green, cream, grey, and has a few thin gold threads for good measure!.
    [​IMG]
    That's my old-man Stetson hat! The pants have six buttons trimming the front, but zip up the back. The jacket is a below-hip length double-breasted pea-coat with welt pockets set into the front princess seams. I made it.

    I am a thrift/vintage junkie and enjoy finding one-of-a-kind things to wear. My look changes according to my mood and I refuse to be a slave to trends or labels. I have become a master of finding bargains.

    Some examples:

    Balenciaga-like tapestry vest $3
    hand crocheted pullover vest with a v-neck $5
    beige tailored trench coat for $2 :heart:
    black chiffon dress with metallic embroidery and jeweled buttons $10
    black suede knee-length boots $8
    black cashmere mock turtleneck $15
    Chloe-like green quilted jacket with patchwork trim $7
    long black velvet coat with faux-fur collar and sleeve trim $10
    pink puff-sleeve trench coat $2
    black silk velvet puff sleeve evening jacket with sequined collar and sleeve trim $10
    vintage Betsey Johnson royal stewart plaid mini dress $15
    hand beaded/sequined top in the shape of a butterfly $5 (it weighs about 3-4 lbs and was made in India)

    Every once in a while I buy a designer piece at a sample/warehouse sale and throw it in the mix.

    I like wearing quality comfortable clothing that is not screaming look at me, but that will catch the interest of those who pay attention to fabric, cut, detail and crafmanship. The Belgians come closest to that look - Ann, Dries, Raf, Margiela, etc...

    A very representative piece of such a look is my favorite piece right now - the black fine-wool pants by Ann Demeuelemeester with two adjustable straps across the back of each leg below the knee (to make the pants fit looser or tighter to my liking) and drawstrings on the bottom (in case I want to tuck them into my boots).
