In case you have not seen, heard or read that ox-blood is Fall’s ‘it’ color, then let me be the first to say “ox-blood is Fall’s it color" ha! (I know, I make myself laugh. Unfortunately, usually I’m the only one laughing) Maroon has always been one of my favorite colors, throw a little shellac on them and bam its looks like wet leather. I picked up these jeans from Zara on my 25th birthday (wow, its been 2 years :/) I loved them so much I also have them in black.
Oh hello sweet lace back.
The color of this baby blue belt reminds me of a 1950's chiffon blouse.
And say hello to my baby! My first Chanel piece ever! I absolutely love her! It was one of my birthday gifts from the hubs, and yes it's a vintage Chanel! Score and score! She is from the 1970's, still in pristine condition and super soft! She was purchased at the same place I got the vintage Valentino skirt. I can’t emphasize how important it is to find a trustworthy vintage dealer. I had been trawling ebay for years but was always hesitant to purchase knowing how many fakes are out there.
Several months ago J.W. Anderson collaborated with Aldo. Thus I scored these amazing ankle strap heels highly discounted. I think because of its unusual pony tail back (that’s what I call it) no one bought them. They were left on the 50% off rack all by her lonesome waiting for me to bring her home. The sale rack is always fun to sort thru because there tends to be unusual pieces that people leave behind. I love to buy unique or to some, unusual pieces vs classic. After all they are known as classic for a reason. They will always be there or you will find another designer that will remake it! My friend Drea and I were discussing what happens when people purchase simply because pieces are classic. What happens is you will end up with a closet full of boring clothes. I’m not saying don’t buy the pair of black pumps that you will wear everyday. But live a little, next time buy the pastel shoes or maybe the ones with pony hair :)
Speaking of collabos. Did anyone get any Anna Dello Russo’s accessories from H&M? I was so disappointed when Philly was not on the list to sell the line. The Croc sunglasses are so much fun.
