Navy Blue Coat and a Tree Stump Statue

I really like the color combination – the rich navy blue of the coat and the yellow and navy blue of the printed scarf showing off dark brown hair…but what I find really funny is this wooden sculpture of a bearded man with a bird on his head, made from a tree stump. I wonder whose idea it was and what this statue means…




Fall Park Scene – Couple Standing Shoulder to Shoulder

A couple poses for a photo in a classic fall scene at a Northern park, with golden leaves carpeting the ground. The woman’s outfit is pretty cool- she actually wears a beige jacket over a black manteau and black pants tucked into brown boots. It’;s a sure sign that winter is coming when you see jackets over manteaus! 🙂 Her scarf is bright orange, which does not match the rest of the outfit.



Classic Car Expo Fashions

These photos are great, in that they actually show the classic cars, which are pretty awesome, as well as the stylish outfits…below are two manteaus, black and beige, worn with black leggings (or skinny pants?) and light beige scarves (although the one on the left has a yellow tinge to it).


The red and black plaid hooded manteau looks astounding against a red sports car…and the snood is perched atop a tall hairstyle. The black studded boots add an even more rebellious feel.


The Best for Last – Two Media Expo Outfits

Finally, here are the best two outfits from the media expo- these are truly awesome. The blue manteau looks regular with jeans and a matching scarf, but what a difference that black and silver gothic collar makes! It immediately adds a touch of rebelliousness and..yes, coolness…to the whole outfit.


I thought the sleeveless denim manteau below had ruffles on the collar, but upon closer examination, it is actually a print in the fabric. The fact it worn as a dress with black leggings (or tights??) and an olive green top is certainly awesome, as is the loosely draped scarf.


I enjoyed these outfits very much and wish there were more like this!

Dust Masks on a Higher Level

These 3 outfits are from a very special area, one that inspires my mind…and two of the three involve dust masks. These ones do not, but they do involve a beautiful mint green scarf pushed back by a thin white headband…and worn fully open to show off a long braid! The black shoes with gold square heels on the woman in the beige scarf are truly unique items.


This coat is made of brown tweed-like fabric and IS worn with a dust mask as well as a cool scarf in grey, green, and yellow stripes…


..while this outfit involves a red jacket over an olive green manteau, a green scarf pushed back, and a “carpet bag”, that classic indie/rebellious manteau style accessory!


Media Expo Styles Continued

I still have a couple more posts from the media expo, and here is one of them…a nice sampling of various outfits…from this denim manteau paired with a matching navy blue snood, still a relatively rare sight…


…to this long black coat worn with a black scarf with brightly colored fringes on the edges…













..and from this selfie with beige and black manteaus (the latter boasting black and white printed cuffs and collar) and pushed-back snoods showing glossy, perfeclty styled hair…













…to this awesome brown poncho with sleeves- I have a few of those and this small detail makes a world of difference in terms of making the poncho easy to wear…yhe blond hair on the woman in the black coat is a cool touch as well..
