Lockdown-Inspired Outfit

Monday's review was over a really scary, creepy, and super-exciting book called Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith.  Being framed for a crime and thrown into an underground prison for life?!  Ahhh, no thanks!  But I definitely had to design an outfit inspired by this book!  And here it is:

Ball and Chain look 
A prison-inspired look that isn't too heavy on the prison!  Let me explain it:

  • The black romper--such a trendy piece.  And let's be honest--prisoners basically wear full-length rompers.  I love the white detail around the armholes on this one.  *This is a Chalayan Gray Line Organza Trim Romper and runs about $257.
  • The scarf--classic black and white prison colors.  This scarf (Julie Egli and a whopping $474!) is nicely oversized to add some comfort to the romper.
  • The black sandals have some neat chain detailing and keep the outfit's attention toward the top.  These are Jeffrey Campbell Shacked Chain Sandals for $135.
  • And speaking of a chain sandal, I always think of the cartoon "ball and chain" when I think of prisoners, so I added ball earrings to complete the look of the chain sandals.  These are 9 mm sterling silver ball earrings from JC Penney ($18).
So what do you think?  Do you see the prison inspiration in the outfit?

I'll be back tomorrow with another review!  See you then!
