Completely Gratuitous Outfit Post






What I’m Wearing
* Burberry Trench coatlast seen here {a gift from my father-in-law a couple years ago}
* Iisli black sweater dress …a gilt purchaselast seen here {with sweater & shoes as well}
* Heritage 1981 gray long cardigan
* American Apparel wine tights …must admit that as much as I hate wearing tights {um, because they are tight} AA’s are fairly comfortable.
* Silk Pashmina …My boss brought a handful of amazingly gorgeous silk Pashminas back from a recent trip to Syria, laid them out on the table and let us all choose our favorite. There is a reason I’ve worked for this man for over 9 years now. He’s not only a great boss, he’s very generous as well.
* black Ferragamo hobo bag …yet another gift from my father in law {this Christmas} …and isn’t nearly as shiny in person.
* Tom Ford sunglasses …I’m still waiting for my new ones!
* Topshop black patent brogues/oxfords …last seen above with dress

After slipping my shoes on, I bent over to tie them and was instantly reminded of high school, which put a smile on my face. I went to Catholic school where we had to wear a uniform and were only allowed to wear loafers or lace-up oxfords, like these. I had a similar pair that I found in a men’s shop which I loved. They were soft black leather and I would wear them with tights on cold days. It was such a fond memory of easier times and being young. Wow how time flies. You really don’t grasp just how quickly time passes until it’s gone, and it’s years later. They tell you that when you’re a kid but it just doesn’t click.

…later on, at home.


And what makes me happiest about this picture is the fact that in about 2 weeks I will not have to live with vertical blinds {and them falling out of place every time I open or shut them} any longer. Yay to change.

    Lovely outfit. I went to a catholic too with green and dark red uniform. The shoes are amazing, here in Madrid are very popular, I saw them a few days ago to Kate Moss and Sienna Miller too on magazine.

    Vertical blinds are the worst invention in the history of the modern world (well, either vertical blinds or leaf blowers).

    Seeing your red tights made me happy though! I think I’ll bust mine out some time this week! My favorite thing to do is wear them with red shoes. It’s sort of so wrong that it’s right.

    I love this whole outfit, especially the trench coat and the tights. I’ve been trying to find a nice pair of oxfords for a while, I want vintage ones though. Hopefully Goodwill will be good to me 🙂 Yay for changes, definitely keep us updated!

    I love this so much! Instead of pairing your outfit with boring black tights, you wore wine red. I love how it matches your scarf and contrasts with the coat.
