I love layering sweaters for extra warmth and a functional fall look. Gap blue sweater under a Banana Republic oversized sweater vest and black skirt. Don’t know where these stockings came from but love the textured pattern. New Gil Torres black ankle booties!
Preppy school girl pleats take shape in a vintage red Jones New York petite wool skirt I bought for a dollar! Etienne Aigner vintage navy flats, Ann Taylor blazer, Echo silk scarf, great Ann Taylor brown tank dress I cut into a shirt. All thrifted except the amazing Wolford tights and Tres Noir sunglasses.
Ann Taylor stiletto platform boots (from last year), Betsey Johnson leopard tights, Josephine Chaus vintage silk skirt (thrifted), 80’s-tastic denim shirt (thrifted), great black label-less coat (thrifted), Stella & Dot tech wallet.
“Clear eyes, full hearts, CAN’T LOSE!” Not even kidding, I’ve adopted that as a daily mantra lately. I’ve been re-watching Friday Night Lights, one of the best television dramas EVER, and naturally am inspired to wear more denim and boots. I love Tami Taylor and Lyla Garrity of course. Those ladies know how to run stuff.
Vintage earrings from my mom, Grandma’s boots, fleece lined cheap leggings (the ones from the drug store- get them, they are amazingly warm!), J. Crew skirt from the factory store, cashmere thrifted Ann Taylor sweater, Gap thrifted denim jacket, handmade scarf.
All vintage, all thrifted (except the tights): Louis Feraud skirt, Blanco silk striped blouse, Italian metallic tights, Etienne Aigner boots, silk scarf. Stripes + floral = I love it. MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) in HBO’s brilliant drama The Newsroom wears amazing silk button down shirts tucked into little skirts most of the season one. I feel like Mac today!
Bella Luxx cowl top, Vintage skirt, vintage belt, vintage lace slip. Rodarte for Target stockings and Repetto red shoes. The shoes I found at an amazing Frock Shop Sale here in Denver last year. They cost $20!! An unbelievable deal for Cinderella shoes and I love them! 10 years of ballet classes taught me to love Repetto as a brand, and I think it is great they’ve branched into street shoes and a gorgeous commercial RTW line.
If you’re wondering what a great vintage scarf looks like, here’s an example. Hand printed, hand rolled hem, pure silk. Total luxe glamour available to anyone who looks hard enough! It is about to snow, and had I the luxury of traipsing around this field for hours, this is what I’d wear. Vintage Brooks Brothers Duffle coat, Banana Republic sweater, Norma Kamali for Walmart long navy jersey dress, green jacket from Kohl’s, motorcycle boots, and black hand-knit legwarmers!
So these gloves! 100% silk lining, Real hide. Giselle, Made in France. These vintage beauties are the stuff dreams are made of. The stitching and craftsmanship is perfect! Worn with a Seeberger wool bow hat I bought in Munich. Missoni for Target silk scarf layered under a hand-knit-by-my-sister mushroom gray wool cowl scarf. Black coat is thrifted, and I wish I knew the brand. It is fit for a petite frame- love the perfectly placed waist seam, and covered buttons in the front, and baby blue lining. The sleeves are the right length too- I scored it for $3, no lie. Basic Ann Taylor wool sweater with horizontal ribbing (love!), and Banana Republic A-line skirt. Wolford purple stockings, Etienne Aigner thrifted boots.
Did a fun event this weekend selling dresses with a bunch of other local independent designers in Denver. Wore S.W.O.R.D leather jacket, 50 Dresses leopard print dress with a vintage brooch, nude fishnets, and amazing vintage boots. There was an indoor swing! I want one now.
