There is something magical about the femme suit. Ever since the great Yves Saint Laurent decided women should also wear pant suits, costumes for women constisting of a pair of tailored pants and the matching jacket/blazer has been a true classic in every woman's wardrobe. For the fall/winter season of 2012, Miuccia Prada even transformed Miu Miu's signature girly dresses into boldly-patterned suits, finished off with blocking patterned shirts and egdy platforms.
I was lucky enough to receive a vintage fine wool suit from a very stylish aunt and it has been hanging in my closet for many months now. The first time I wore it, I still remember clearly, was at my oral exam of the Austrian A-level. I definitely made a fashion statement wearing this beige, heavily embellished vintage suit, while others rather stayed black and white.
Below are photos J took of me a while ago, as you can tell by the warm atmosphere. Vienna in december is quite cold and not so enjoyable outside anymore.

My take on the femme suit was a feminin one. I recently got my hair cut and the new mid-long length makes me feel much more androgyn and I guess more egdy stuff are coming up. A belated Merry Christmas to everyone and an early happy new year!
Now that we've survived "the end of the world" or whatever people called it, there's nothing to stop me anymore.
