cream cotton sweater
AE McAllister, merlot
topped it off with the barbour that I'm absolutely loving:
Not happy with how the grey v-neck jumper works with the rest of the colours today. I blame it on still feeling half asleep when getting dressed, and deciding I needed a jumper at the last minute and not really thinking about what colour to use. Square isn't ideal either (a darker complementary colour would have worked better).
upr_crust I'm 5'6'' so very short (and fat with a disproportionate neck-body - very unfortunate I know :(). I would love to shorten the coat but as yywwyy pointed out, the buttons are positioned so slow that shortening the coat would ruin the overall balance. I bought it because I thought it's a very nice cashmere-wool overcoat (and partially because the salesperson was such a sweet talker); when I'm home I'll post a pic of me wearing the coat with the buttons closed so you guys can help me judge if alteration is needed. Maybe I can shorten it by 1-2 inches only.
I wish that I could work in the fashion industry :)). The interview was actually for a job at a management consulting firm. I know it's a bit flashy to bring an LV to an interview but to be honest, I don't think that many people would recognize the Damier Graphite pattern. I personally like this cover bloc very much; it's nice and functional so why not? Plus, as far as I'm concerned, management consultants are fairly snobbish and I've seen them (and the receptionists at their firms) looking down on students not looking the part when going to the interviews. And Claghorn, I do wish that my friends are generous enough to gift me LV :)) - Plz be my friend if you're that type of friend :)).
