Grey Days

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.



Horse of a Different Colour

Top: H&M. Skirt: Betsey Johnson. Handbag: J.Crew Edie. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: ASOS. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Kate Spade Bow Ring, Ardene. Bracelets: Stella & Dot, BCBG, J.Crew, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.


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.

After years of searching, I’ve finally found the perfect denim jacket.  Thank you J.Crew for making this denim perfection with the perfect amount of stretch, the perfect length in the body and the sleeves, the perfect fit across my shoulders and chest, the perfect width to look perfect both open and done up, and the perfect medium blue colour.  Just perfect.
