What I’m Wearing

* Red/Coral vintage leather coat …I think this coat is from the 60′s. I found it over 10 years ago for $15 but probably haven’t worn it in over 5. It’s in surprisingly perfect condition, lining too. Tag says Leathers by New England and the photos do it no justice. It’s like butta.
* Calvin Klein jeans -cuffed. Also had these for over 10 years. I really only remember the age of my stuff by where I was living when I got it …fun fact about these jeans? the zipper never stays up. woo! …last seen here
* Ivory satin camisole. My mom gave this too me recently along with a black one after I asked her if “she had any of those silk camisoles I used to make fun of you for wearing?” lol …but the straps were unbelievably short so I cut them and stitched on ribbon to lengthen them. {DIY later}
* Marc by Marc Jacobs ivory and gold heels. I think I got these on gilt.com …a while ago ..last seen here
Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace also from gilt.com …last seen here
* Gold D&G Check watch
* Tom Ford “Yvette” sunglasses

I’m finding it increasingly stressful and challenging to get great outfit shots in the mornings before work lately. I’m thinking I may have to prepare them the night before …which I really don’t like because I think it loses some spontaneity but I also need to preserve my sanity. I would have preferred better shots …as these came out so dark you really can’t see what this jacket looks like and in lightening them, they sort of get grainy. I dunno …maybe you don’t care ;) but I do. I’m sort of a perfectionist like that. It’s irritating.

    The outfit’s fantastic, in no small part to how effortless you make it seem. Wishing I could wear jeans to work and adapt this look to my own wardrobe…

    P.S. Forgot to mention last time, but the new hair looks great. :-)

    I seriously think this is my most favorite outfit. The coat is fantastic, and if it looks better in person then that is even more amazing! Truly classic, I could wear this everyday.

    Love that red coat on you. The color is really great for you. I am a perfectionist too so I completely understand. Sometimes it sucks to be that way, but it is all worth it in the end =)

    I’ve been having a hard time with outfit posts lately too….I’m in such a rush in the morning and I look like crap by the time I get home. something must be done!

    YOU look amazing though and I love that jacket…great find!

    Funny how you’re so critical of these shots. I thought you looked so amazing I didn’t notice any of the flaws you think were present. The color of that jacket is stunning on you, and the whole outfit just really works for me.

    I had no idea your coat was leather til you said it-it hangs like fabric-that must be the butteriest leather ever! Love the simple cami and jeans with great statement accessories (the shoes and coat). My problem with getting in outfit pics is that I do not budget my time well in the morning…and I’m such a sleepyhead, I’ll press the snooze button 3 too many times. Great idea asking your mom for camis…I know my mom has some old ones that would be perfect for me…I know what I’m doing the next time I visit her! (Btw, my mom loves your blog…she’s not into fashion blogs or blogging, but she found you through a link on my blog and says all the time, “that Maegan girl looks like an absolute movie star! thought you’d get a kick out of that!)
