TARDIS Tuesday :: of duping and extreme pattern mixing




So I’ve been smitten with this outfit ever since I stumbled upon it eons ago.

I don’t even remember what I was searching for. Plaid pants, perhaps? Certainly not toile. Because what I do remember was that it was love at first sight but I had not owned anything toile until then, so I immediately went on a Mad Hunt for toile because of it.

Of course, having quested and having acquired said toile item, life conspired against me and it would take me this long to finally assemble the ensemble.

It was worth the wait, however. This look is me personified: plaid, yes; button up shirt, of course; TARDIS blue, natch. The only kerfuffle to putting it all together had been the half-tuck technique that I apparently have woefully forgotten, being so out of practice and all. The addition of the belt – in a bright, bright yellow, no less! – really pulled the whole look together, and now I am mighty pleased with it.

And I think I like it even better in this pants iteration over the original skirt version.

Have you got a blue outfit that makes you giddy too? Do tell…
