The Purple “Coat With Skirt” Ensemble

This selfie is so cool that it is almost all purple- from the lilac embroidered manteau to the darker, floor-length skirt and from the lilac printed scarf showing off blond hair to the bright purple bag. The only non-purple item is…the beige shoes. This year has been great so far for “coat with skirt” ensembles, which makes me happy, as it is a rare but beautiful style.

Epic Egg Painting Festival Photos – Part IV

Part I, Part II, Part III

Some more cool outfits from the egg painting festival can be found below…I am not commenting on the strange figure painted on the egg though. The navy blue shirt on the left is too short to have manteau status, but the half and half coat on the right (featured a satin puffed sleeve on the blue half, combat boots,  and orange socks) does have this status and makes this photo hugely popular.

This beautiful patchwork egg is being painted by a girl in a lovely grey plaid manteau worn with a burgundy scarf…

This all-black otufit is made slightly brighter by a red scarf…and the grey canvas shoes (which were extremely uncomfortable for me)…

…however, this couple, posing by a painted egg for a selfie, looks very relaxed. I love the black, white, and red print on the silk scarf and the fact that this sleeveless manteau combined with purple and green panels on the front will let her learn more directly…

The Louvre Exhibit Fashions Part II

This set features more of the actual Louvre works at the exhibition from the previous post…and they are stunning. I have never visited the Louvre, but I hope to do so one day. I do have books about it..and among the many things I want to see are these Persepolis sculptures…to see them here, juxtaposed with the black manteau, platform heels, and grey printed scarf, is truly amazing….the essence of the style once again.

Against a backdrop of the Louvre itself, there are n olive green coat and snood (a very rare sight) and a kurta-style beige tunic (also pretty rare after 2006-07) with an emerald green scarf…

…as well as another olive green jacket worn with a navy blue snood (snoods in different colors seem to be big at this exhibition), and a military-style black coat with big gold buttons (and a yellow matching scarf, too).

..while the last 2 photos  involve a photography expo of people looking at Louvre paintings. It seems that the woman on the left, in the open navy blue coat, is wearing denim overalls! This is only the 2nd time I have seen this item with any type of manteau style (see the first here). The woman on the right is wearing a red coat and green scarf…

Purple Vest and Plaid Skirt and a Red Printed Manteau

This year has been phenomenal so far for coats with skirts- I have SO many photos of these outfits, and it’s only April! The purple vest worn with a plaid pink+purple_green+yellow+brown skirt is absolutely stunning…as is the red printed coat worn open with black pants (cut off above the ankles). I love the subtle pops of green in both outfits too.

The Snowy Outfits Begin…

Snowy winters bring cool manteau style combinations…such as this black coat with a white furry collar, which is worn with a nice purple scarf.

This classic outfit features a black leather coat and gloves, jeans tucked into tall brown boots, and…

..a fully open red and yellow zigzag print scarf (as well as stunning and subtle make-up!)…and what would a snowy or rainy day set be without the umbrella man statue?

First Set from the Media Expo

In the last couple of years, this expo has yielded lots of awesome styles…this year is continuing the tradition…in fact, the first photo in the set is not even from the expo itself but from the set-up of the displays the day before (!!!), which is another first..fittingly enough, it’s a lilac coat worn with an open purple flower-printed scarf, through which long blond hair flows beautifully…

On to the expo itself…it seems that grey coats are very popular at this expo. See for yourself! First, here is a grey sweater coat with a smiley face t-shirt underneath…

Then here comes the classic grey manteau with black pockets and cuffs and a pushed-back black snood…

…and finally a grey one-button-closure coat, also worn with a pushed-back black snood.

And for a change, here is a relative rarity – a cape-style manteau in beige (only the 3rd one I have seen so far) worn with a black long-sleeve top underneath and a flower-printed scarf draped to show red hair. I hope the baby is having fun at the expo!
