Happy November lovely readers! Can YOU believe that it is already November? I have already seen Christmas lights in my neighborhood, so it must be true! Today it was sunny and brisk, so I wore my weekend "uniform" ( skinny jeans, buckled boots, sweater), but I chose a fur trimmed sweater to protect against today's chill, and it worked perfectly!
I love the option of a fur trimmed sweater or fur scarf when it is cool, but not cold. I dislike the bulk of a coat ( although I LOVE coats!) and prefer this on a day like today where the sun is warm, and the air is chilly.
I am wearing a grid patterned sweater trimmed with a detachable fox fur collar. It is made by Louis Feraud, and I purchased it at my favorite neighborhood store, a re-sale shop called STA. STA is short for Second Time Around, and there are many of these in Manhattan. The stores are loaded with designer confections, at a fraction of the original prices! Their merchandise is nicely edited, current, and from prestigious designers only. Plus, I love the sales staff there, they know me well, and when I walk in they show me things in my itty-bitty size! Hence, the lovely fur trimmed sweater! Yay!
My skinny jeans are JUST USA from Square One in midtown Manhattan, and cost $10.00. I love the fit and they have worn very well. My sunnies are Dolce and Gabbana, bought years ago, and my studded belt was thrifted on Long Island for one dollar! The buckled boots are from a favorite flash sale site call Zuliliy.com and are made by Breckelle's. They are the perfect short boot for Autumn.
My leopard bag was purchased a a yard sale in Southampton and cost one dollar also! My topstitched gloves are form Bloomingdales and were considerably more than a dollar, but hey it was the eighties! I am just pleased that it has been almost twenty years and I have not lost them, or of of them ( pet peeve- what does one do with only one glove, other than wait for its mate to suddenly appear in the back of a drawer or linen closet? )
