80's Custom Thrifted flare...


Hello Family,

I hope your day is going well. On this day it
was such a beautiful day out and I decided to wear this look for church
and the rest of the day. This look is not for everyone. I got alot of
the side eye in church but I am used to that. I don't have a name for
this skirt pants fit but I love it.

This is another creation by
Tem and he told me this is a reincarnation of a version of an 1980's
look. I thought I would go with a funky vintage type look. It has
been hot, hot, hot here in the Chi (Chicago) so I wanted a cool look.
This off the shoulder look was perfect weather. The neck piece was a
belt and can be used as a headband. The leather cuff was a belt that I
cut into a cuff.

Sunglasses (Fleek Market) Borrowed from Tem
Neck piece -
Gold Top
Leather vintage belt
Wrist Cuff

I hate to post and run but I have a full day.  I will pop back in I promise.

    (These are sarong pants). 

    You are Queen Confidant Poser, Ledonna. Your verve is inspiring, and I love how unaffected you are. Side-eyes won't ruin your day. Quite right!  

    A fabulous outfit for a HOT day. Nice choker detail too. Rock on.

    a beautiful outfit! Great details!

  • catgirl replied 4 years ago

    Love this look!

    Is there an issue with bare shoulders in church? I know nothing about it but wondering if that was the side-eye issue.

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 years ago

    Hey Alaskagirl  I had a shawl that I used to cover my shoulders  it was a vintage knit shawl  I felt like it was very appropriate.  I wonder if sometimes people want to say something and just don't and I wind up getting that hard long stare. 

    Jane Thank you so much.  If you look at the skirt thingy it has cherries my favorite fruit. lol

    Angie Thank you Sarong Pants you are so SMART  Thank you so much.  Sometimes I get sidetracked but we must keep on living life.  Have a great weekend sis.

    Boy, Tem is a master of clothing construction. I want to know how he pieced the skirt together so well (!) How he cut the fabric, everything.

  • shedev replied 4 years ago

    I really like this outfit.

  • Chris987 replied 4 years ago

    This color combination is quite subdued compared to the bright colors you often wear but it is just as fab on you as the brights!

    Maybe some of that side-eye was admiration You can always hope :-)

  • El Cee replied 4 years ago

    Gorgeous look for a hot summer day!!! I absolutely adore your sarong pants... and I would not hesitate to wear them in my own church. Perhaps the side-eye was just people trying to take in your fabness. :-) You make a bold and beautiful statement with your outfits. I personally love that about you.

  • Lyn D. replied 4 years ago

    Love the Sarong Pant, and the belt-choker is clever and ahead of trends according to Angie's Fall predictions!

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 years ago

    Lyn D I love being ahead of the trends.  Because I always wear these things.  It will be my season finally.

    El Cee Thank you and That is how I'm choosing to look at the side eyes I was given.  lol Makes me happy

    Chris 987 Yes, part of my wardrobe shift.  Although you will see more darker colors in the winter. 

    Shedev Thank you

    Rachylou there are so many details in te skirt thing (saraong skirt pant)  Sometimes I film time creating at the sewing machine.  Maybe I'll post one some day.

    You just ooze fierceness!

  • Karie replied 4 years ago

    Fabulous! Another gorgeous skirt. If you were getting the side-eye it must have been because they were jealous of your beautiful outfit!

  • Cerinda replied 4 years ago

    Love your accessories.  I saw some trous like those in some runway shots I was looking at recently; will try to locate them.

  • Anna replied 4 years ago

    Love the outfit, attitude and the shoes are awesome!

  • Firecracker replied 4 years ago

    What a great outfit. I love those sarong pants, and the taupe top and sandals give a cool, icy look with the dark blue. This is a great look for a hot day. I really like the cuff and necklace that you made from belts--stunning and creative!
    Maybe the church ladies wondered where your hat was? You could treat them to a colorful head wrap next week. :)

  • Shelly replied 4 years ago

    Love the outfit and accessories. You look amazing but I have to say I just adore those shoes. They are definitely my kind of shoes.

  • Bijou replied 4 years ago

    As a church goer I could not help but give you a sideways stare as no one looks this fabulous at church. You and Tem are a match made in stylish heaven, this is beautiful.

  • Momo replied 4 years ago

  • Ledonna N. replied 4 years ago

  • Sterling replied 4 years ago

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!  I as much love your pictures/poses as I do the outfit.  I think fashion/style is attitude as much as anything.  You have that.  I want to emulate that.  

  • Gigi replied 4 years ago

    You have such a great attention to detail! The accessories really make the outfit. And the sarong pants look perfect on you. I love your confidence!

    I was going to say that it was probably the bare shoulders that garnered the stares, but if you were wearing a shawl, then there's no need to stare unless someone is captivated by your awesome fabness. :) I usually wear a lightweight cardigan to cover up at church on such occasions, but I love your idea of a shawl and must find one!

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    You look amazing. You have beautiful shoulders, Ledonna. I love your fierce poses.

  • avicennia replied 4 years ago

    I agree, it must have been admiring side eye!
