Hello my lovely blogging friends. I hope this dreary Sunday night is not too bleak: I would like to think of everyone inside , cozy, and curled up with a good book or a good movie on NetFlix. My husband and I just discovered "Orange is the New Black", which is such fun. The weather yesterday was fickle so I wore two jackets, and added some visual interest with a color block bag.
My muted boucle coat is comprised of heathered stripes in the predominate colors of burgundy, black, cream, and grey. It is made by "Jack" and was purchased at a local boutique on the Upper West Side. It has roomy pockets and is lightweight: perfect to layer in this fickle season. I am wearing a denim blazer that you will see again in a future post that I bought on eBay. I love it, it fits perfectly, so I was truly lucky. Thank you to the seller who warned " this garment runs small!". My skinnies are familiar to you now; my $10.00 go-to, denim favs.. My ribbed mock tee sweater is Miu Miu, purchased at Encore Re-sale last year. It is also a treasured go-to, as it looks well with anything and is fits perfectly!
I added a color block bag in tri-color, lambskin leather to this outfit. I was pleased that it added a focal point, and very happy that the color block trend is still going strong. Since my outfit is essentially monochromatic, and my coat is so muted, I thought that the color block bag would add a nice, crisp pop of colors! ( new phrase!) The bag was made in Hong Kong via eBay, and I got to choose the color combination myself. That was fun, and helpful, since these colors do compliment a good portion of my wardrobe. I also love that I have the option of three handles with this color block bag; one handle is hand rolled, lady-like style, and in deep navy, one is in gold chain, and one is long enough to be worn messenger style. Here is a close up of the bag:
Are you wearing color block bags, or sweaters? I see them in all of the best stores here in NYC, and they still look fresh. Let me know in the comment section. Again, I wish you a fabulous week to come!
