Female Pattern BOLDness

Jane George, this one's for you on Shiny T Tuesday, your first one, over at Flight Platform Living.


Check out how palatially-spatial these palazzo pants are. Oooh yeah. But I've showed them to you before. What I haven't shown you before are this alphabet blouse and fringe madness jerkin. (Thanks, Vix, for the word. I hope I've used it correctly. I always confuse it with the pickle.)

Details
  • alphabet blouse made in L.A., thrifted, vintage
  • leather fringed jerkin, thrifted, vintage
  • palazzo pants, thrifted, vintage
  • brown crackle leather boots by Miu Miu, thrifted
  • indigo wool beret, thrifted
  • cotton gloves, Canadian Tire automotive store, I decapped them
  • magic loupe, as always, made for me by O



These patterns seduced me with song; they didn't whisper or shout. 
What I heard went something like this... Voulez-vous...


If you have a pattern that sings, shouts, or just whispers to you, think about joining Jane George for this inaugural link-up. Her blog is AWESOME! Have a great week, everyone.

  4. Are you 7 feet tall? Have you grown since I last saw you? You look astonishingly long and lithe and limber, not to mention luscious in those Giant Paisley Pants. I need a closer look at the flowery spotty alphabet-y shirt, my eyes are a bit old and easily bedazzled and I can't quite make out what is what. It happens a lot...
    I am strangely happy to see you sporting your trusty beret, Mel. She seems to have had a little holiday, but is now back at home. On your head. Beautiful.
    Yes, I've linked up over at Jane's. My pattern was talking a load of drunken nonsense, which is typical of me! xxxxx

  7. These pants make you loooooonger I agree with Curtise you are still growing. The pants with that blouse are surely a pattern mixing party. I salute you, because that beret makes me want too.
    xxoo

  9. This wonderful outfit makes me think of a gaucho. I think you need a horse or maybe a colorful gypsy wagon. Ole!

  10. DUDE. I compelled Beary to come see the most tremendous pants ever in existence (at very least on par with Curtise's designer crotch-yellow-bracketing trous), his response was "WOW. How tall is she ... 19 feet?" We salute you.

    Kudos to Jane George for the new gathering! Will be along as able.

  13. Hey Soul Sistah. Look at you wearing an awesome pickle and probably the BEST big pants I have ever seen in my life! Tres Belle!

  14. I am so glad that no pickles were harmed in this post. Love your paisley pants!

  15. Those are simply amazing trousers! I love the jerkin too, I had a patchwork 70s jerkin for years, I'm not sure what became of it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Everyone should have a pair of wonderful paisley pants.......the best trousers ever.
    Worn with a jerkin makes it just the pickle to!!!!!
    Fabulous as always....

  17. I adore your commentary just as much as your outfit (your allusion to mixing jerkin and gherkin saw me snorting in laughter at my screen, while also instantly imaging you wearing a pickle. And THAT then reminded me of the pickle car in Richard Scarry illustrations - so then I visualised you wearing a gherkin and driving round in an open-top pickle car. This is the effect you have!)
    A super-abundance of fabulous going on in this post.

  18. It's the attack of the 50 Foot Woman in Print Palazzo Pants! Forget stopping traffic - you could stop a charging Rhino in those pants.

    I always think of Gherkin whenever Vix mentions a Jerkin, and I love Rosalind's image of you driving around in an open-top pickle car.

  23. What a fantastic outfit for Jane's When Patterns Speak; this speaks loudly of the most amazing hallucinogenic glamour. It's how a cowboy would look dressed by Ossie Clark, and you carry it off with your brilliant insouciant charm and panache Mel!

  30. I have been rendered speechless.
    Stunned, simply stunned by the glory of this ensemble. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.....

  31. Melanie, you make me careen around until I'm dizzy with joy. Is the the air in Vancouver? Is it something you secretly sprinkle in the food? Whatever it is, I want some!! Your palazzos are divine, and the jerkin (not to be confused with gherkin!) is a masterpiece. Just today I was bemoaning the fact that there's no outsider/fashion inspiration here. Guess I might have to move. In the meantime, I know where I'll be in the blogosphere. You're amazing. XXOO

    ReplyDelete
  32. OMG you look amazing!!! That alphabet shirt is the big shizzy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love palazzo pants and the way you pull all these things together!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You look about 20 feet tall in these leggy palazzo pants! I bet you were swooshing and twirling a lot to get that jerkin (as opposed to gherkin) fringe going.

    ReplyDelete
  35. How did I miss female pattern boldness and your once again amazing ensemble. Jerkin is a word that I use now too. Vix has increased my vocabulary, along with many other bloggers in this vibrant community
