Out of Print

I’ll keep this post short and sweet – mostly because I noticed there was a huge smudge of I-don’t-know-what on my camera lens AFTER I took these pictures. This was the best of the bunch, and it still looks pretty bad. Sorry. I’m bummed about it because I’m in total LOVE with this sweater! I never thought I’d find it second hand either. I actually just read the Great Gatsby a few months ago too, right before I found the sweater, so it was kind of meant to be. My most librarian outfit to date ;) I do want to support Out of Print more – but until they start making their clothes in the USA….I just can’t buy it new!

My skirt

How did March get here so quickly? And how is it already half-way over?! I have been trying to force myself to go bare-legged when the sun is poking out – even when I know the fog will roll back in. Who cares if I have to change before the sun sets? My legs are in desperate need of some sun! (and I’ve been keeping an extra pair of tights balled up in my purse in case I really begin to freeze). I saw some photos of girls bare-legged in NY during Fashion Week. I don’t know how they do it (or why they do it?) If you can’t figure out how to dress weather appropriate for snow, then maybe this fashion thing isn’t for you?

Hey, a simple outfit

I started this blog post with all different kinds of words – first with a whole breakdown of blogging, about style, and then I scrapped all the ideas. What this really is, is just a post about me and how some days, dressing down feels really good. I went to visit my family in Southern California to meet my new nephew and these travel outfits always end up quite interesting. Mostly because traveling between San Francisco (where it’s chilly, and has been rainy) to Southern California (where it’s inevitably sunny and warm) gets difficult when you only want to bring a carry-on. This outfit isn’t flashy, it’s not bright, it’s not even dark! (I do enjoy my all black outfits). It’s just comfortable, plain and simple.

My thrifted outfits are starting to lean heavily towards the Made in Asia side…I have a few things I need to do. I’ll have a Made in USA post coming up soon!

Clean lines

Hello December! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving time, I was traveling non-stop but took some time to see the Keith Haring exhibit currently running at the De Young Museum here in San Francisco. It’s a must see! I’ll share pictures below. These past gloomy days have me dressing like the weather, in a rainbow of grays to match. I finally have pulled out the cozy sweaters. The great thing about thrifting, is that you’re never far from a cashmere sweater. I plan on eventually replacing all itchy sweaters with thrifted cashmere one day.
