On the roof-deck, I am side stepping snow. It is still winter. It is March yes, but cold temps and snow tell me winter is not over. I am wearing a lightweight tweed Chanel skirt with matching fabric messenger bag, it is vintage. My boots are fairly new, also Chanel, and are not snow friendly. My faux fur jacket is by TWELFTH STREET BY CYNTHIA VINCENT, and it is keeping the chill away.
My necklace is an older, and collectible Chanel necklace. I like the coin theme. The bracelet is textured and was purchased on Modnique, a flash sale site. In this next photo, I am smiling, I can see ahead to warmer days!
Last week, I also wore Chanel plaid trousers with my simple Dolce and Gabbana coat, lined with its signature leopard pattern. My gloves and shoes were also of this pattern, I may not see it for a while, so why not. The brown tweed sweater is older, from Saks. I will never tire of tweed, Chanel tweed or any other tweed!
My favorite all time fabrics, for anything wearable, is a Chanel tweed or boucle. I am one of the few who does not own or covet the classic Chanel flap bag. One day I do hope to own a tweed one. Chanel also makes wonderful plaids. I am also wearing these tartan plaid pants, that have such wonderful cargo pocket detail, with sweet but hard to detect Chanel printed into the zipper pockets, and a lone CC button at the high waist. These are pretty new and are timeless. Such a simply thing to style. I added only the L.A.M.B. bag for some levity and contrast; such a cute little critter, and a metal link belt from Moschino.
Here is a closer look:
Today it is 40 degrees and would have been a great day for photos. Instead I am on the phone, catching up with old friends, inspired by the coming of spring. I am also reorganizing my closets!
I want to thanks Aracely Garcia for make up and hair, and Erika Arias for photos and style assistance! I know some of you are on the other end of the world, saying goodbye to Spring. I wish all of my readers a wonderful, sunny season. I know I can't wait to post more Spring looks, and I look forward to seeing yours!
