White Out

Wednesday, January 13, 2010
I kind of planned this last night but not really. It was more like "Ehh, I'll just wear this and this and figure it out tomorrow morning." Which I did! This never happens to me! And I actually like it. I can never find good ways to wear this jacket so I'm proud of myself for it! And I'm still in love with this coat.

Wearing secondhand Kenneth Cole Reaction coat ($60), thrifted Talbots blazer ($4), Gap striped shirt ($10), F21 gold flower necklace ($8), J Brand jeans ($158), and Tsubo boots ($160).

A few of you have asked about my puke-pink-purple bag. Yeah, that is the color I identified it as and I still bought it! I got it at Wilmington, Delaware at a shoe store called MJM for $20 - the most I spent on any bag! Yup, I'm just cheap like that. The brand is Mondani New York. Not sure if it's legit or not. I was actually going through my closet to find things to trade in to Uptown Cheapskate and I saw that I haven't used it in over a year. But I realized it could fit my books, lunch, and water bottle more comfortably than my Gucci bag. So now it is here to stay! :)
