The Shower Curtain Coat

Hey guys! The scuba dress post seemed to be very popular! I was thinking Miu Miu myself, but I can also see the Preen and Michael Kors in it, as some readers suggested. Actually, maybe even a bit of PHI resort 2010. My mum said it looked like Thor Heyerdahl 1979. Who is he you ask? I was wondering the same thing. So I googled him:

Norwegian ethnologist and adventurer who organized and led the famous Kon-Tiki (1947) and Ra (1969–70) transoceanic scientific expeditions. Both expeditions were intended to prove the possibility of ancient transoceanic contacts between distant civilizations and cultures. For the most part, Heyerdahl’s theories have not been accepted by anthropologists.

Haha mother, haha. Anyways, yesterday I went on yet another thrift excursion and picked up this very 80s wool coat. My boy said it looked like a shower curtain. Haha Kevin, haha. If I paired it with a bright orange body-con dress and geometric make-up I could pass for a Liquid Sky extra. What a strange but stylish movie. I'll see if I can screen cap it for the blog. Alas I have no such dress, but I am warming up to the idea of orange as a wardrobe color some more.





I've paired the coat with a blouse made by my grandmother, H&M skirt and booties from The Shoe Warehouse.

I also picked up another sheer dress and two purses. More on those when I get around to taking photos of them!

Oh my god, that is the cutest coat I've ever seen! It goes so well with the blouse.

It's funky but I think you pull it off with the neutral and simple basics underneath.
