Hello Blogging freinds!! I hope this week has quietly wisped by and that you have enjoyed it! Monday I went out and it was sunny, so I took advantage and did a quick outdoor shoot with a friend. Since the day was sunny, but cloudy, I took two extra layers with me. I was so glad I did! Here I am outside wearing toasty beige cashmere!
My jacket is a cashmere blend from Michael Kors, and has sculpted tulip layers at the bottom from front to back. I loved the shape of this jacket- and it ran small, therefore I bought it without hesitation from STA, Second Time Around, my favorite neighborhood re-sale shop. ( Thanks Sarah!) My denim jeans are Level 99, and I bought them at a local shop too, but they are sold out now. Never fear, I saw them on Anthropologie's website- they are mid waist and skinny, and fit SO well. My burgundy shell in cashmere is Prada. Above I hope you can see the details better, I am also wearing Dior sunnies in burgundy, and a bag that looks just like Hermes Bolide, but is made by another well known French house, Lancel. I have enjoyed this bag for about twenty years!! Below is a close up of a necklace that I made year ago. It is comprised of polished yellow quartz, labradorite briolettes with an iridescent blue flash, and a row of diamonds in the middle - that did not come out in the pictures) from an earring whose mate had been lost. Here is a close up of that necklace: Another photo of the outfit:
The following photos are of me after I added my third layer, a fur trimmed shawl, in beige cashmere that is trimmed with suede laces. I found this at a consignment store in Westchester NY, and rescued it, as it needed two grommets repaired- a snap for someone with jewelry tools!:
Now, what is this outfit missing? Well, I originally planned on walking the three blocks to this location to shoot and then change into my Louboutin booties. Alas, I forgot them! I do think the outfit would have looked much better with them! My loafers are Chanel, but have seen better days. Oh well, the booties will make plenty of appearences in upcoming posts! I hope you are having a great week and have not being making silly mistakes such as this!!
