Honestly, holiday dressing is pretty easy. Pick red or green. Add some sparkly. Done.
Extra points, I suppose, if you have a grumpy Persian cat to squeeze.CONTINUE READING »
The holidays are always a busy and stressful time. Lately I've been spending most of my time running back and forth to the post office, otherwise I am dealing with crazies at work who just - ahem! - forgot to file those contracts until 12 seconds before they needed them. Thanks a lot guys, I just love drafting contracts with VPs breathing down my neck!
Anyway: quick outfit shot, it's all I have time for really, and basically I've just been living in this.
Hat: vintage (thrifted)
Flannel: vintage 1960s (thrifted)
Vest: vintage 1960s LL Bean (from this lovely Etsy shop)
Jeans: Comptoir des Cotonniers (thrifted)
Snow Boots: Sorel (not so much with the thrifted)
It really does help to have a "uniform" not out of laziness but because the equation works. Think: Kate Moss, Emmanuelle Alt. Those ladies have it down. So in the the Denver winter, I have my own uniform (at least when I decide to go outdoors). My equation: start with skinny jeans, add a button down (half tucked of course), add a giant scarf, top with a classic coat and finish it off with ankle boots. You really can't go wrong. My indoor uniform? No one needs to see that.CONTINUE READING »
Today I went for a 1970s professor look. Nothing says professor more than a vintage shabby tweed blazer with elbow patches and suede/canvas Oxfords. All that's missing is a tobacco pipe and pretentiousness. Okay, maybe just the pipe is missing.CONTINUE READING »
Oh hey, California girl here. First Colorado winter! Was so happy to finally wear coats and boots, having approximately two or three occasions to do so in the past 31 years, I almost didn't even mind that it was 37 degrees, down from 75 degrees the previous day. Talk to me again in a couple of months and see if I still have the same enthusiasm. Oh well, I LOVE LAYERS!CONTINUE READING »
