Jacket: Zara. Dress: Jacob. Handbag: Balenciaga. Shoes: Nine West. Sunglasses: Chanel. Necklace: Stella & Dot La Coco Curb Chain. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Kate Spade, Ardene.


I am pleased to announce that my two month long search for this floral Zara bomber jacket ended on Monday (although I’m sure the only person who really cares is the one typing this post)!  It has been sold out in Toronto for months, but last Thursday (the first day of Zara’s huge sale), an entire rack of my size suddenly appeared in store.  Hey, I guess it was worth the wait because I got it on sale instead of paying full price…score!


Side note:  I’m leaving for NYC today, returning on Wednesday.  I’ll have a few scheduled posts, and I’m going to attempt to provide glimpses into my trip via Twitter, if I can figure out how to use it!

Wearing orange and black together always reminds me of Halloween.  I was a little unsure of this combo, but as the day progressed, I felt better and better about my choice.  Do you feel like a walking holiday when you wear orange and black?
