I’m so excited to finally join the camo club.  Let me tell you, I was extremely hesitant.  I so badly wanted to become a member, but I just wasn’t sure if I could make it work with my feminine wardrobe.  Then I laid my eyes on this Zara camouflage jacket with a blazer cut and jewelled detail, and knew that this was my “in” to the group. Have you joined the club yet?

 

 

 

 

Something New

Top: J.Crew. Skirt: Club Monaco. Handbag: J.Crew. Shoes: Jimmy Choo. Belt: BCBG. Necklace: ASOS. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Kate Spade, Ardene. Bracelets: Kate Spade, Henri Bendel, J.Crew, BCBG, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Sometimes all it takes is a new accessory added to an outfit of older pieces to make you feel like you’re wearing a brand new look.  Each of the items I’m wearing is at least 3 years old, except for my new J.Crew Edie handbag I picked up in July (already worn in the post Ladies Who Lunch).  I just can’t stop talking about this bag!  I am madly in love with its surprisingly versatile lovely lavender colour, and it’s classic chic shape.  Barring any unfortunate ice cream spills (because I eat ice cream a lot), this purse will be in my collection for many, many years to come.

This Club Monaco skirt is at least 8 years old…maybe older, but I love it as much today as I did when I bought it. With it’s pencil shape and black & white print, it’s a classic piece that will never go out of style.  Do you have older pieces in your wardrobe that you just know you’ll never get rid of?
