White pinstripe suit after a day’s work at the office – Fato branco risca-de-giz depois de um dia de trabalho


Yesterday I finally found the pants from my white pinstripe suit (under a coat on a coat hanger, so typical of me) so today I took it out for a spin with a black lace/embroidered top, black cuffed sandals and my fun floral print bag, just to break some of the formality of the suit. These photos were taken by me in the end of the afternoon after returning home from the office (there wasn't enough time to take photos in the morning, I was already late); the suit is wrinkled from sitting at my desk all day long, please excuse that detail. This suit is incredibly well finished for a RTW garment; there’s piping and hand stitching on the jacket’s lining, an interior coin pocket and I could also feel the hair canvas chest shield on the inside. All the pockets are fully functional, there are no mock-ups. This came as a surprise because I got this suit from an online Outlet store during last sales season, it was very cheap (25 euros!!). 
 
Wishing you all a wonderful and relaxing weekend ahead! Thanks for reading and for the kind comments!

Ontem finalmente consegui encontrar as calças do meu fato risca-de-giz branco (numa cruzeta com um casaco por cima, típico), por isso vesti-o hoje com um top preto de renda bordada, sandálias pretas, e para quebrar um pouco a seriedade do fato usei a minha bolsa estampada com flores. As fotos foram tiradas ao fim da tarde depois de regressar do trabalho, por isso o fato já estava um pouco engelhado de ter passado o dia sentada numa secretária, perdoem-me este detalhe. Este fato é extraordinariamente bem acabado para um fato de pronto-a-vestir barato: o forro tem um vivo na orla que também é pespontada à mão, um bolso para moedas no interior, e através do forro consegui sentir a entretela de crina do reforço de peito que dá estrutura ao blazer. Todos os bolsos são funcionais (não há bolsos a fingir). Para mim foi uma grande surpresa pois o fato custou-me apenas 25 euros num website Outlet durante a época de saldos passada!
 
Agradeço as vossas visitas e comentários e desejo-vos um bom descanso no fim-de-semana!

  1. Tany darling would you believe it....at first sight I thought I was on the wrong blog, lol, I always thought your hair was short, I never noticed that you did it up. Shame shame shame on my *color-me-red* I love the look on you with the hair down. Love the outfit too! The suit is elegant, chic and very feminine. You rock it. Tany you can pull off everything, it's amazing. You have this touch of effortless chic that comes by nature.

    ps I am drooling over your heels.

    kisses darling

    1. Thank you so much for the big compliment, Lenya darling!! The heels are a recent purchase, and they are not so comfortable as the heel height would suggest,... They hurt my ankle a bit but perhaps this happens while they are new (I sure hope so!)
      Many kisses to you!

  2. Hello my dear friend! How are you?
    Tany, I would love to see how you wardrobe looks :) it must be a super colorful jungle with loads of hidden gems inside :)
    You look so elegant in this pinstripe set, it is so perfect for the spring time, I guess it creased because the fabric composition is natural to fit the warm temperature, apart from that minor thing it is very beautiful and I like that blazer has only one button. You look super stylish as always my love!
    Wish you great weekend ahead with lots of fun, sunshine and positive energy! love you loads, kisses and many many hugs! <333333333333

    1. Thank you so much Zhanna darling! Hope you're doing well!
      I must run a big wardrobe clean-up for spring, at the moment my closets are just a big mess with spring and winter garments all mixed together :(. I've been avoiding this task because it's so time consuming (and time is a precious luxury) and also because I know major laundry will be involved (again, time-consuming). Usually I spend more than two weeks until my wardrobe is fully organized for the new season....
      Many many hugs, kisses and good wishes to you, my friend! <3333333
