stripe addiction: what I'm wearing

Sorry for the darkness of these photos. It's been dark here in general, and the fact that I always decide to take pictures at night doesn't help much.

Back in September, my last day in Stockholm included a 15-minute mad dash around Topshop, mostly in search of this sweater. It's become one of my favourite things to wear this fall and winter- something I just throw on if I'm in a rush for work or can't decide what to wear.

Instead of just with black jeans, I've worn it here with black leather pants (from H&M- another great buy this fall! Real leather with a bit of stretch for $200) and an Undercover lace dress that is at the exact perfect length. I've had this Undercover dress for years, and can count on one hand how many times I've worn it. I was almost going to get rid of it when suddenly it became the perfect layering piece. I especially like the way it looks over leather.

Also, I find it funny how my hair has a gradient or balayage look here. It's just really long roots! I really need to visit a salon.

I've been trying to get in on the affordable-stretch-leather-pants-from-H&M for forever, but the US stores don't seem to stock them. You guys get all the good stuff.

fleurette- thanks! means a lot coming from you :)

vincent- that's why I bought it!

mmr- thanks, it was expensive (even though I bought it on sale) but I never get tired of it.

Fashion agony- thanks!

jayne- I'm usually highly overwhelmed by H&M and never go in there, but I just stumbled upon these back in october I think... a rare good find from them.

doni brown- thanks :) that's my favourite part

I like this a lot too!! I can not resist black lace. It is one of the things I could buy over and lover. Good call in keeping that dress. Are the boots new too?

H&M opened here recently, and I was overwhelmed by the atmosphere, and I'm underwhelmed by the clothes.

I love everything .... really great !!!

Ginta said...

I love it! I love that combination of soft, feminine and tough.
And it made me realize that I want/need something in black lace!

Stephanie said...

H- yes, the boots are new (to me) scooped them up at my consignment store. They're quite old- maybe from the 90's or early 2000's, but have that great talon heel. My thoughts exactly on H&M! I usually leave with a headache.

I love your look!

sparklingsea said...

This is great! The shoes are fab!

hugo said...

wow, i just love your outfit!
just a question: which size is your knitwear? i love how it suits on you, a bit oversize but not too much though.

Stephanie said...

Hugo- this sweater is a UK8- you're right, it is perfectly oversized! The only down-side is that it's hard to find a coat/jacket that fits over the sleeves
