My closet no longer brims with prints, but I was pretty pleased when I realized these two geometrics would work together. I thrifted this scarf in San Francisco at least five years ago, and it has made it through dozens of wardrobe cullings for a reason: It’s a classic. The cardigan is a new addition and I adore it. You can’t see them terribly well but the forearms have faux leather patches – such a great finishing touch! read more

I stalked these boots, friends. Patiently, and for many months. FINALLY a used pair in my size popped up on eBay and I pounced with extreme glee. I made sure the vendor took returns because boots with foot-long fringe might or might not look amazing in person. But they arrived, I fell in love, and we’ve been happily together ever since. Versatile, they’re not. But they sure can elevate a simple outfit. read more

Dressed for: Distress

Already Pretty outfit featuring distressed leather jacket, skinny jeans, layered necklaces, platform ankle boots

Tee – Threads 4 Thought Veronica V-neck
Jeans – H&M (no longer available) – similarsustainable
Ankle Boots – Parnu courtesy ECCO (no longer available) – similar/sustainable

I hunted on eBay and Etsy for months before finding this jacket, which just might be the most perfect distressed moto I’ve ever seen. It looks almost exactly like this Golden Goose one that’s going for $475 used, and even after having the sleeves tailored I paid less than 1/4 of that for mine. I can barely conceal my glee. read more
