So Cath and I joined the ranks and scoured our local Target for Alexander McQueen finds. I snatched up the jumpsuit and Cath got the TRS pants and a cute zip-up hoodie.
I had to work some magic with the jumpsuit. I love the studded shoulders and the cut and weight of the fabric feels pretty good, but it still needed some tweaking. The attached belt is sewn on at the waist and looks awkward, so I dropped the waist using an old studded belt I already had. Also the length and crop of the pant is really unflattering so I scrunched them up my leg using hair ties (a la Bleach Black- genuis!).
That might seem like a lot of back-bending for a jumpsuit, but I'm pretty happy with the results. And, hail to the jumpsuit, the most pajama-like non-pajamas ever!
I know a lot of fashion bloggers are pretty disappointed with the McQueen/Target collaboration, but we figure we'll settle for this McQueen until we can afford this McQueen.
sunnies, Nordstorm; cuff, Eviva; belt, Walmart (yes, ma'am!); shoes, Max Studio.
See the scrunching in action. Without the hair ties, the pant legs come down to mid-caf.
Ahhhh the backpack (Urban)- it's my new favorite thing.
So, two questions:
1)What did you guys get from the McQueen/Target line?
2) Are you jumpsuit people? Seriously, you should try one on! So comfortable! (Though I did get a few jokes about prison-wear)
