Daily Outfit: 9/29/10


 Red shirt dress, Land’s End

Turquoise belt, thrifted Silk kimono-print pumps, Faryl Robin Suzu, via eBay Necklace and bracelet, thrifted

I absolutely promise to shut up about the weather soon, but allow me one final rant. This fall has been pretty confusing for me, stylistically speaking. I’ve dabbled in boot-wearing, but on days like today when it gets to be 70 degrees? Boots seem preposterous. As do heavy fabrics and layers of any sort. And while I long to delve into my fall and winter duds, I’m trying to enjoy these last warm days, knowing that it’ll soon be so dark and so cold I’ll want to hibernate till April.  Thank you, end rant. read more

Daily Outfit: 9/27/10

Gray cashmere sweater, thrifted

Black skirt, Banana Republic via eBay Red wool shawl/wrap/scarf, bought in Iceland Gunmetal peeptoes, Tahari, courtesy Marshalls Garnet bracelet, via eBay Garnet earrings, gift from my mom

This garnet-red wrap is the first of my Iceland purchases to get worn, and itchy as it is, I adore it. I feel that the open weave makes it a great transitional wrap, and it kept me cozy all day long without feeling suffocating.

These shoes were picked up on a recent trip to Marshalls that also yielded several fab pairs of tights and some knee-high socks. I absolutely cannot hit a Marshalls without taking home some hosiery …


And these earrings were a 16th birthday gift from my mom. I STILL adore them. read more
