Harper’s Bazaar in Review

leave a comment »

Sadly, the December 2012 / January 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar failed to inspire us this month. Still, we soldiered on and uncovered a few glimmers of style worth re-purposing this holiday season.

Here’s one of our favorite looks from the issue, which would work great from office to holiday party. This could’ve easily come off as a cater waiter ensemble, if not for the ultra-high waist, flared trousers, cummerbund belt with minimalist chain, and exaggerated Peter Pan collar. Easy to replicate too.

Cobalt sweater paired with cobalt, sharkskin cigarette trousers. We don’t see enough of this color in mixed monochromatic textures, so well done, Harper’s.

Monochromatic and monotextured, long and lean, this almost looks like a tailored, wool knit jumpsuit. But it’s not. Another easy to replicate look, if you have the lines to pull it off. It’s lovely to be warm and hot at the same time.

Bells Will Be Ringing

Ye merry gentlemen will definitely need some rest when you enter the party in this 1950s-era wiggle dress. Who needs tinsel? With this dress hugging your curves, you will be the only decoration they will see. Imagine the twinkle lights bouncing off every gold sequin right down to the devilishly low-cut back. Current bid on eBay is $42. Click on the images below to see the listing.
