WIW - Romantic Astronaut

That's what i decided to call this look. :D

I found these metallic jeans a couple months ago at H&M for $7! I remember looking at them in the spring for full price and decided not to buy them because i had silver striped pants but for $7 i'm sold!

In my internet browsing one day i stumbled upon some designer or retailer that paired metallic silver with deep reds and i swooned so i decided to recreate the look here. As well as combining a bit of sci fi with romance. Really love it and i've actually worn this combo twice now! Once out on a dinner date and on "casual friday" to work. :D

Thanks for looking. All comments are welcome good or constructive. ;)

    Great combination and so very you. I wore my silver jeans yesterday

    Nicoleb - your look makes my day. It reminds me of Robert Heinlein, Cordwainer Smith, Ray Bradbury, and other great romantic sci-fi authors. *wistful sigh*

    There are not enough superlatives in the known universe, so let me just say I salute you with a glass of Tang and a single tear!

    Looks great, I love the cameo necklace. I tried those jeans on but they were laughably short on me.

    What a great outfit! I love the red with the silver, and every bit of your ensemble is perfect - jacket, ring, necklace, and the SHOES! Thanks for sharing.

    A cameo paired with spiked pumps? Love. You are amazing at putting contrasting elements together and making them work!

    Love this - the red and silver combination and the cameo with leather is fantastic.

  • MNsara replied 11 years ago

    Stunning! No astronaut I've ever seen has looked anywhere near this fab ;-)

    Love the silver jeans with the spiked heels!!

    This looks so great on you! Love those shoes and of course the sci-fi jeans. :)

    OMG I love this outfit so much! The color combination is amazing, and I love the combo of romantic, punk, and sci-fi. The cameo is the perfect finishing touch.

    Metallic silver skinnies have been on my list for a while - I CAN'T believe you found these so cheap. You look UNBELIEVABLE and I want to copy this outfit as soon as I get my hands on (or spray paint) some similar pants.

    Love it all.

    You look great! That silver/red combo is fantastic - and seriously, $7 unthrifted for those jeans? That's insane!

    (When you get a chance, grab a black marker and colour in those sticker remains on the bottom of your right shoe!)
