Mother Nature has found her focus, and she has her sights on New York,preparing an unsavory dish of bitter winter. How to deal? Layer!
It was a crisp and perfect day, but by the time dusk had fallen chilly winds were served up. I am glad I added a tweed coat to my tribal print dress.
My lightweight dress is airy and felt great at the height of full afternoon sunshine. Made in Italy, by Motivi, it is slightly bo-ho and part lady-like. The tweed coat , trimmed in mink, is also Italian, by Moschino Cheap and Chic. I love this autumnal pairing. I bought both together about 12 years ago. Both were purchased at Loehmans, a now defunct store that carried iconic brands at discount prices. So sad it is gone!
My cheetah print shoes are a comfy find from Payless, that makes the most wearable shoes for women who walk in heels, and not just to dinner or the corner store.
I guess I was onto the tribal print dress early on, although this print is sort of an ikat, too. Either way, it is timeless, and season less-- my favorite kind of clothing. My suede gloves are from an antique store in Greenwich Connecticut, and have tiny rosebuds at the edges. They are elbow length, perfect for when the sun goes down. My sapphire necklace is one I made, also around that time. It feels good to have clothes and accessories that you love, especially good when you love them for years and decades!
To complete the Italian theme ( coincidence!) my sunglasses are Dolce and Gabbana, in a bold red, that is fun to wear and hard to lose!
How are you staying warm - or cool- in this changing season? Are you still a fan of the tribal print dress? I am wishing you peace, some leisure, and some stylish fun!
