Too Much

Fred Meyer Cap / BCBG Velvet Coat (consigment, old) / All Saints Dress (ebay) / Sam Edelman Boots
I loved this outfit at first and now...don't really care for it.  I thought the lines looked really cool and I still like the idea of the cap, coat and boots but maybe not this dress - something about the lines look off when I look at the photos.  I think it would be cuter over my white Joie silk button up and my black waxed Maria jeans so I'll have to try that!

Two For One

Vince Cardigan (ebay) / Free People Dress / Dooney and Burke Bag (thrifted) / Michael Michael Kors Boots
I only snapped a few shots of this outfit but i really loved these boots with the dress.  I like orange quite a bit but sometimes have a mental block when it comes to wearing it because so many of my basics are black - pretty halloween looking!  But I flt the navy of the sweater and the bag kept this from looking a little to holiday-ish..

Fred Meyer Cap / Buffulo Wool Coat (thrifted) / Helmut Lang Dress (ebay) /. Vera Wang Leather Boots (consigment) / AEO Bag and Scarf
This is a bit costume-ish looking but I love this cap and coat togther!

Rather than 5 inches of snow, we received two days of rain! Who's complaining? Not me - I'm happy to see the powder stay away for as long as possible!

AEO Hat and Jacket / Joie Silk Top (ebay. older) / Justify Skirt / Sam Edelman Boots / Cleobella Bag (older)

For being a cheap skirt, this fake suede one sure has been pretty fabulous. I've washed it several times now and have had no problem with seams puckering or falling out and the fabric can take a beating - something I'm not sure I could say after washing a real suede skirt. I wore it with this silk embroidered top I've had for a while now, ebay is a great place to find Joie tops for very cheap. (I've gotten all of mine for under $12, most were about $8-ish with shipping.) These boots have filled a huge hole in my closet, I had so many times last year that I'd wish I'd had a pair of over the knee, slim cut boots to go with an outfit. It did take me most of a year to find one that would work for my calf size, 14.5 to 15.5 inches, it seems most boots run narrow with calf measurements of 12-13.5 inches and then it jumps right into extended  calf size which are a bit too large for me. These are right at 15.5 in a size 10 (I wear a 9 but usually take a 10 in boots so I can wear thick socks in the winter) and they are just snug enough they stay up but also fit over jeans. The heel is quite comfortable as well and I like where the tops of the boots hit on me proportion-wise, just high enough for short skirts but they're going to look awesome with longer skirts!

Too Bright


Joie Top (ebay) / Eileen Fisher Silk Tank (ebay) / Nine West High Rise / Vera Wang Boots (consignment) / F21 Jacket (thrifted)

No hat for me this day, I tried to not be lazy and actually do something with my hair. (Still lazy, it's just two braids pinned up and takes about 2 mins)
