I’m a big fan of coated denim. Certain finishes look extremely leather-like, and others add texture like the subtle reptile print on this jacket. I’ve been loving solids lately, but enjoyed this pop of busy print atop the black-on-black pattern. Stealth print mixing. read more

I generally remember to throw on a slip or pettipants when I wear tunics with leggings, but on this day I forgot. And didn’t realize I’d forgotten until we’d taken these photos and a couple of days had passed.

Dressed for: Replacement

Already Pretty outfit featuring leather sleeve jacket, leopard scarf, slouchy pants, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff Logan

Scarf – Nordstrom
Jacket – Vince Camuto
Tee – Alternative Apparel (mine via Ragstock)
Pants – Gap (no longer available online but I’ve seen them in stores) – similar look
Booties – Steve Madden (mine from last year, but these are exactly the same)
Earring – The Wellington Boot
Bag – Rebecca Minkoff Logan (no longer available) – similar shape

I missed it almost immediately, and hunted around for a replacement. This Nordstrom one is a bit more washed out than my old one, but I might actually like it BETTER. Soft, thin, huge, goes with everything. Maybe not so much of a loss after all. read more
