Not Santa’s Suspenders

Grey Button Up: Express.  Skirt: JC Penny’s.  Tights: Simply Vera.  Shoes: Steven.  Suspenders: ??  Necklace: Macy’s.

I love how quirky suspenders are!  They gave this outfit just the right amount of whimsy and still kept it men’s-wear inspired.

Oh heavens. That is so adorable. I love that look you. I am not a fan on the ankle booties, but I also have yet to find a pair I truly love period.

I love that look. and I have the same JCP Skirt =) I remember a couple years ago (maybe 06 or 07) suspenders where really trendy in Germany. So I bought myself 2 pairs and ur outfit gave me a good idea =)

The suspenders look great! I have been wanting to try some out (ever since a friend bought a suspender high waisted skirt in London and wore it to work a few years back) but have yet to find the right outfit.

I think it's so neat that you continue to find men's wear inspired looks... what a great theme.

You look soooooooo cute and sharp. One of my most favorite outfits you have EVER worn! Love the blouse & booties with this. I have been meaning to buy some suspenders, actually I want 2 black pairs: one thick like these and one more skinny but i don't seem them anywhere in any stores. Can you tell me where you got them? HELPPPPPPPPP?!

Thanks! Unfortunately, I can't remember where I got them :( BUT - I do remember googling for them, so I'm sure you'll be able to find some online if you search!
