Grey Days

Monday, February 4, 2013 108 1

Coat: Zara. Top: Improvd. Skirt: Club Monaco. Clutch: Balenciaga. Boots: unknown. Rings: Stella & Dot, H&M. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Happy Monday Everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Did you all watch Beyonce’s AH-MAZ-ING Superbowl halftime show?  Wow, she killed it!

 

Now, on to the outfit. . .I bought this coat a few months ago, but the rest of the pieces I’m wearing are all several years old.  The Improvd wrap top I’m wearing is a really cool piece.  It can actually also be worn upside down with a slip underneath and it looks like a dress.  The boots I purchased in NYC many years ago from some random store we stumbled upon while strolling through Soho.  The label on the shoe is worn out so I can’t remember the brand name, but I do know  it’s a brand I have not heard of.  I spent years searching for the perfect black high boot and got so lucky I came across these.  I have pretty short legs with relatively big feet for my height ( size 8 ), so it’s extremely difficult to find boots that fit my calf and legs properly.  It will be a sad, sad day when these wear out.

    Wow, that top is incredible. Love the concept of the belt wrapped around and it being worn as a dress. Extra mileage for your closet!

      Thank you so much Conny, and thanks for stopping by! I completely agree, the real Balenciaga clutch is very expensive, however my personal thoughts are that it is worth every penny. I don’t buy “faux” designer bags but I absolutely don’t think there is anything wrong with women who do…it’s totally a women’s prerogative to by the real thing or an inspired version…hey, whatever makes us happy! If you’re looking for a faux version, I’m sure there are tons of them online. Maybe try searching “Balenciaga knock off clutch” or use the word “inspired”. If you are in Canada, I know the retailer Danier Leather carries inspired versions all the time. http://www.danier.com
