Black Out

Black Out

It’s ridiculous how short these posts are.  I’m uncomfortable with writing in such a sparse way but as we speak, I’m topless, trying to find a top in the suitcase that is swallowing up my clothes and my hair is dripping on the keyboard which might blow up if I’m not careful and I was suppsoed to leave six minutes ago.  I have a bit of a tale to tell about this outfit which was taken outside the Maison Martin Margiela show but it’s a long one… I’m calling it my Good Deed of the Year…as I generally don’t do good deeds…


Emilio de la Morena jacket/dress, Preen leather trousers, Tristan  Blair wedges, black socks stolen from boyf, Vivienne Westwood bag, Marios Schwab for Topshop cigarette box, Paraphernalia camera necklace

    susie you’re looking so great in these pictures! i adore this outfit, i would happily wear it exactly as you are, if only i could afford such beautiful things as that emilio de la morena jacket! also very very very jealous that you got to attend the maison martin margiela show, cos it looked absolutely amazing.

    Ok I have to admit that I usually find your outfits too exuberant and a complete dare for me, but I absolutely LOVE this one, and I would definitely wear it – if I had the budget to buy them!

    Hi Sussie,
    Love your outfit and I love your short posts, they are more concise and to the point I prefer these since I read you at work and try to read quickly, I think you can say much with little verbiage 😉

    That jacket/dress is making me LOSE MY MIND!! The whole outfit is wonderful though. Keep on having lots of fun over there, and don’t worry about the minimal posts, it’s all for the greater good of the Paris shows 😉

    Great outfit! Is the dress slightly quilted at the collar? What did you think of the Martin Margiela show, I saw some of the photos and was weirded out.

    You look great! I love the simplicity and the fact it has the air or you having casually picked out an outfit for the day. Whether or not this is the case, you look awesome and I still kick myself for not buying that Marios Schwab necklace when I saw it in the sale.

    2008-10-01 at 1:26 AM

    This is the most perfect outfit i have ever seen you in!
    the dropped frill of the boxy jacket with the skinny pants = perfection. your hair is also perfectly in balance with the rest of the items.
    Did I say it was perfect?

    I love the way you wear your leather trousers. Combined with the shoes and the black socks it gives much cuteness

  48. songy

    2008-10-01 at 12:38 PM

    loving that jacket details and the way you pair that with a pair of leather pants. Really enjoying your PFW series although they are brief. it’s quite okay by me.

    I get so excited when you do an outfit post. They’re very inspiring to me. I especially like this look…it’s how I want to dress at the moment but I don’t.

    I love black! Your layering of textures is the only way to wear it too!

    I LOVE this outfit, honestly think its one of the chicest and simple outfits you have put together. you still kept the ‘bubble’ vibe by layering but in a discreet way, so parisian darling!

    Great look – very french in all black. I especially love how cuffing leather takes away from how they are normally styled and casualizes them. Love monochromatic & texture! Probably my fave outfit of yours thus far.

  70. Carol

    2008-10-09 at 4:10 PM

    I love the way you wear the trousers! I have a pair and I worry as they are not skin tight…skinny….but not skin tight. However, you have proved that they do look good:)

    I like the color black 😛
