I know I’ve been rather quiet lately. Far too quiet, even for my own preference. But truthfully, the last month I’ve been struggling with a pretty awful eye infection that I still can’t seem to shake. As you can imagine, picture-taking isn’t high on the things I’d like to do. Today, my eye has been looking somewhat decently better so I decided that I would try to take a few photos with this wine-colored coat and see if I could make it work. A little bit of extra face angling, et voilà! A few photos that almost don’t look like I got punched in the eye. 🙂
I fell in love with this wine-colored coat when I saw it online. It’s totally not within my regular color scheme, but I love a good wine/burgundy colored statement piece. It’s a great contrast to my winter wardrobe that’s heavy on the neutrals.
I’ve lived in these black Paiges ever since I got them before the Christmas holidays. I’m a huge fan of Paige denim, and these do not disappoint. For a long time, I had been opposed to super stretchy denim because I’ve always been of the mindset that denim should feel like denim, not leggings. But given how denim has evolved over the last few years, finding a good pair of jeans without a significant amount of stretch in them *and* that have a great fit, isn’t the easiest to find. In the end, I gave in and I haven’t looked back.
This blog has gone on for upwards of six years now, and I think this might actually be the first time I have ever showcased a mini skirt. It’s been a long time since I’ve allowed a mini to have a place in my wardrobe, but for $35, I didn’t have a whole lot to lose. Also, I thought it would go fabulously with these Stuart Weitzman Highstreet OTK boots. These boots happen to be eligible for $125 off at Neiman Marcus right now with code NEWYEAR until 01/13/2017. They run a bit long, but the same as my Stuart Weitzman 50/50.
One of my favorite jewelry purchases of 2016 was this gold choker necklace from Bauble Bar. It can be tied or allowed to hang freely around the neck and give a little extra visual interest without going overboard on an otherwise pretty minimalist ensemble.I also purchased the black leather version that is also extremely popular at the moment, but I find myself always reaching for this one.
Headed out to the pub this weekend for something a bit different. No, you are not seeing double. If you recall, I do have this exact same jacket in blue (see post here). I was looking for a grey suede jacket that didn’t break the bank and when I came across this one by BlankNYC I couldn’t hit the “purchase” button fast enough. Unfortunately, they are sold out in the grey, but they do have it in stock in this amazing burgundy color.
Bloomingdale’s is having their Friends & Family sale and you can grab this amazing suede jacket with an extra 25% off on $198 (use code: FRIENDS). For a suede jacket with that has a good amount of weight to it, this is a really great price and I highly recommend it.
The sleeveless turtleneck tunic I’m wearing under the jacket is made by Ann Taylor. I was fully expecting to return this, but was really surprised at how flattering it was. I took my regular AT size, XSP. It is also currently on sale with an extra 30% off at checkout.
Other notable sales include Theory which is also having there F&F sale. Use code FRIENDS for 25% off. They also offer free shipping and returns if you are unsure about sizing. I’m really loving the this trench coat, and while I’m not normally about ruffles, I really order this blouse.
