This time last year I was frantically chasing down ready-to-wear on sale. This year, I am more or less sidelined because even the items on my Chanel wish list turned out to be not so exciting (or cute) once I saw them in person. Interestingly enough, some of the things I’ve liked most are not the tweed jackets but basics that I can wear on the road, such as this slouchy beanie and scarf set
and a cool black turtleneck with leather strips on the sleeves:
One of my favorite things to wear is a simple pencil skirt. This fall JCrew did a whole slew of knee-length pencil skirts in beautiful tweeds, and I lucked into finding them all on sale last week at 60% off! More on the topic of skirts in the next entry…
On one of my insomniac nights last month I customized these Converse sneakers at their website, and 4 weeks later they showed up. The monograms turned out to be bigger than I anticipated, but I love the patent leather:
The grey pair matches my tote:
Did you notice the Missoni for Target pouf in the photo above 😀 ? Speaking of which, I’ll close out today’s entry with a pic of my velour hoodie/shorts set:
I promise I’m finally done with the Missoni hunt!
