This outfit was inspired by Diana Rikasari (an Indonesian popular blogger)'s new clothing line, Schmiley Mo, which had been launching its debut at Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week in August 2016. The collection was fun, playful, and unique.. surely a reflection of its founder's style. There are so many playful, colorful badges on clothes, wide-legged cropped pants, pleated skirt, fun sleeves; bell sleeves, ruffle sleeves, paired with sweater/jumper or a bomber jacket.
And you know how much I love unique sleeves! Especially those subtle, feminine, vintage or Victorian-inspired sleeves, like bell sleeves, puffed sleeves, or the ones which puff or ruffle on the shoulder (but not in an excessive way).
So, this time I styled my lace bell-sleeved shirt with a bomber jacket and a pleated skirt. The jacket's sleeves was pulled up bringing out those 'dramatic' lace-sleeves... voila! I love the look. This styling even highlights those sleeves more, and it's kind of mixing the edgy masculine bomber jacket with this feminine Victorian-inspired shirt --which I forgot to photograph. This shirt has a Victorian-inspired design with laces along the edge of its sleeves and collar. The collar's style is a buttoned-up high neck, which also can be un-buttoned leaving the collar laid down. The fabric is a bit see-through so I usually wore it underneath a dress/pinafore/jacket.
