This piece feels more “on trend” – less alt, but I liked the styling and it’s still kinda different, in my eyes. Plus, it looks high quality, not always something you get when you pay $80+ to a chain store for a slave-produced garment!
Yes, another shop from China (and therefore, most likely factory made), but I just really love the style of this coat. Ok, I don’t love the awkward collar, but the flare on the bottom, and the way it ends in a bubble, is adorable – something I haven’t seen in too many coats.
You know I can never say “no” to holographic turquoise! I’d say this jacket would probably go well with the Blue Morphose boots I posted about. That’s IF you wanted an all-around, power-packed punch of colour – so you may need to be aiming for the Superhero look. In that case, I’d also throw on a pair of iridescent mermaid leggings, as well. Oh man what a shock of blue that would be, walking down the street! Lol!
Linusmanus is run by Norwegian Line Rostad. She tags all her listings with words like “festival”, “steam punk”, and “goth”, so you’ll easily find her stuff when hunting for those keywords. Another one whose store houses many items I immediately fell in love with. From my very short time in Amsterdam, at the beginning of July 2011, I can tell it’s a cold country, much cooler even than Toronto (I don’t spend a lot of time much further north, because for me, cold = depression), so I’d say if you’re a festival-goer in the northern hemisphere, this store probably has a suitable costume for the cold overnight wanderings festivals induce.
Check out the listing for this stunning jacket, and don’t miss the other gems in this store!
