I decided to get a little freakier than normal with this outfit. I dig the menswear trend going ’round, but my broad gymnast shoulders leave me hesitant to take it any further than a berry colored suit ensemble.

This is me channeling my inner girly-boy. :)

    This outfit is beyond perfection! The color combination is spot on! I would never think to pair burgundy and purple together! It looks amazing!

    Love all the colors! I recently got a red-ish blazer too and cant wait to wear it but it has these crazy football player shoulder pads in it that I need to figure out how to remove without destroying the thing!

    The look is stunning; and I absolutely love the photography. Would you ever consider doing a photoshop editing tutorial? Maybe even for us local SF bloggers? Love, love.

    I’m a sucker for the red/purple combination, but few people wear purple pants with a red top. Such a refreshing switch-up from the normal trend!

    You look great! And don’t worry abot your shoulders – a proper cut blazer actually just make you look like you don’t have broad shoulders – so go for it:)

    Thanks!! I am starting to realize that it is all about the fit when it comes to blazers — that is why I like this one, it is nice and slim-cut!

    Have a great weekend! xx

    Oh my gosh, what a coincidence! My most recent outfit post is fuchsia and red together, too! Such a good color combo, right? Love this look on you, especially those shoes!

  22. Cara 12. Oct, 2011 at 8:41 am #

    love the colors in this outfit and the very feminine take on the menswear look! And those shoes..ahhh I am in love, so pretty!!

    OMG I LOVE THIS! Especially your heels…I have a slight obsession with Miu Miu’s. I’m wearing a pair in my blog post today! Love your blog! http://www.casualglamorous.com

    Thank you!! And you are not alone in your Miu Miu obsession, I feel the same way. :)

    Love your black pumps! xo

    This is a great combo Laura! I don’t think it’s freaky at all–the red/pink combo is feminine and girly–a perfect balance of your menswear inspired look.


  34. Natali 11. Oct, 2011 at 11:08 pm #

    This is great outfit! So simple, yet so energetic.
    Love the colors and clutch very much!

  35. Ria 11. Oct, 2011 at 11:06 pm #

    I have broad shoulders too! T_T

    I only recently did the menswear look for Shop It To Me. It’d be interesting to give it a go on my own.

    I saw the video from the segment, you looked super cute! Should definitely recreate the look on your own. :)
