The perfect rain coat

I have the best luck thrifting, I am now the owner of an Everlane trench coat (which I had been eyeing on their site for a few months) but found at Buffalo Exchange. It came at the most perfect time, since we’ve had some non-stop rain the last two weeks. We sorely need it, so no complaining from my end. Especially now that I get to stay dry and look good :) It does have a wide swing, so I’m still learning what shapes work best, so I don’t look like a tiered Christmas tree. Right now, slim jeans are my choice!

And let me just stay, this Everlane coat is pretty awesome. It is fully lined and constructed SO beautifully. I could only wish all coats were like this, I hope they start making more coats in more shapes.

Do you like all the knick-knacks on my shelf? It’s time to reorganize!

Naughty or nice

I like the idea of one little change to an outfit that can transform the look. A little bow can go a long way – from sweet to sassy in one second. I was going to wear the bow look out to dinner, but decided it was too fussy in the end (my hair was already sort of wild this day). So I took it off and just fluffed my hair up a bit instead.

I also found these shoes again for a great deal! This pair fits a lot better than the other color I have, so I’m gonna try to wear these more often.

Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

Dress: Theory (they release a version of this dress every year, it’s a classic keeper for sure). Shoes: Melissa x Vivienne Westwood (other colors HERE). Belt: Vintage. Twist scarf: American Apparel.

Happy Friday folks! I’ll be on the road again this weekend!

The little white dress: from casual to dressy

Who would have ever guessed that just a change of shoes could elevate an outfit! I’ve had this little white dress for a very, very long time! It was one of those things I cherished from when I worked at Fornarina, back in the early days of my blog. I have gotten rid of most of the clothing I did own from them, because they were way too mid-2000′s Euro looking – but I couldn’t get rid of this dress!

I couldn’t decide which shoes to wear it with. Which look do you like better – casual or dressy?

Dress: Fornarina. Sneakers: Superga. Flats: Sam Edelman (on super sale at Amazon!). Watch: Vintage Bill Blass.

Suit for a woman

Are you guys familiar with the term Le Smoking? It goes beyond just a suit women wear, but carries a lot of meaning in breaking the rules of fashion. I’ve always been fascinated by the idea and how to incorporate it into my wardrobe. So when I separately thrifted this tuxedo pant and then this tuxedo type of jacket, I was just waiting for the right moment to wear them together.

This isn’t an outfit to hang around the house for sure – we had a special dinner for a friend that was here from out of town. A classy place, calls for a classy outfit. And AHA! This was the perfect moment where I could wear my Le Smoking. I still felt very feminine, and I think that is what’s so special about wearing a suit as a woman.

Jacket: Akris, thrifted. Blouse: Equipment, thrifted (different color here). Pants: Trouve, from Buffalo Exchange. Wedges: Yves Saint Laurent, from Buffalo Exchange (there’s always a pair for sale on ebay!) . Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs. Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst in Tutti Frutti.

What do you think? As a woman, would you wear a suit like this?

Oh the gloom

So our June gloom also turned into July gloom. Didn’t I just post an outfit in a dress?! A light jacket is a must during these times when the gloom finally decides to burn away (but it’s like the Terminator, it always comes back). But the gloom makes walking through Golden Gate Park real nice some times – you don’t even break a sweat!

What’s really cool about this outfit, is that my hat, jacket, shirt, and pants are all made in the USA! I want more of my outfits to look like this eventually!

Jacket: Splendid. Top: James Perse. Pants: J Brand sateen pants. Shoes: Matt Bernson. Glasses: Ray Ban. Hat: Vintage. Nail polish: Sally Hansen White On. Bag: Marimekko.
