If clothing is more than 10 years old, can it be considered vintage?  Well, I’m going to say yes, and say that this is a vintage Betsey Johnson skirt that I’ve had for at least a decade.  Vintage just sounds so much more chic than old.



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.



Ladies Who Lunch

Cardigan: BP via Nordstrom. Dress: H&M. Handbag: J.Crew Edie Bag. Shoes: Boutique 9. Belt: H&M. Watch: Michael Kors. Necklaces: Forever 21. Bracelet: Henri Bendel. Ring: Kate Spade. Sunglasses: Chanel.


Feeling very “ladies who lunch” in this full-on lilac monochromatic outfit.  My inspiration came from my new J.Crew purse, which I finally purchased in NYC after I had been eyeing it for months.  I just love the gorgeous lavender hue and classic boxy shape.  Would you wear a monochromatic look like this?
