I wore this ensemble for the tree lighting ceremony in our town last month, but I just stumbled upon the pics.  I am SO into this jacket (that I bought on a recent trip to Goodwill with Amy) and I love the silhouette the jacket cuts:

Red embellished Cache blazer:  Goodwill – adore everything about it and got instant compliments at lunch

 Back v-neck favorite tee:  Gap Outlet – I always get a few of these whenever I hit the outlets.

Black Denim the Rock Star Leggings:  Old Navy – Yes, I own SEVERAL pairs of these.

Black leather Matisse motorcycle boots:  DSW – Yes, I also have THESE in brown too.  They are truly great leather and pretty comfortable.

Gold teardrop hoop earrings:  Forever 21 – I love these.  And also own multiples.  Obsess much lol?

I had so much fun with Jo’ie and Jamison hanging out in Savannah after Christmas.  Here is a great example of my “look” for the entire trip:

Black beanie:  Forever 21 – a score from last year

Leopard pashmina:  Chinatown – bought this in NYC back in 2007

Ray Ban Wayfarers:  Beyond the Rack – got this last Christmas

Black trench with white piping:  TJ Maxx – this was my last birthday present to myself last year

Black Denim the Rock Star Leggings:  Old Navy – these are from my last score in spring

Yellow wedge rain boots:  One of those Savannah boutiques – I got these back in 2007 on a work trip.  Boy are those white soles looked tired and BROWN!  It was supposed to rain all three days we were there but it was sunny and bright and pretty warm on most of the days.

What I’m Rocking: Burgundy Vintage

Jamison and I headed to a local Greek spot for a dinner of gyro platters last Saturday.  Since there was a NICE chill in the air, I was DYING to wear my vintage leather trench that I scored in Pittsburgh.  It is in flawless condition and reminds me of one I tried (unsuccessfully) to steal from my dad for years:

Leather trench:  I got this for $32 at Avalon Exchange in Squirell Hill in Pittsburgh.

Skinny jeans:  Old Navy – I scored these for $10 with a great coupon in the spring, but they are a weird length.  (Tall but the regulars were too short.)

Silver sequin peep toe pumps:  Last Chance in Phoenix – I got these for like $8 and I finally wore them.  I stepped all in dog poo and had to clean them.  So gross and stinky.  Ick!

Accessories:  My Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mab purse and some awesome gold hoops that Amy scored for me in Harlem.

My October Month in Shoes…

This month I have decided to challenge myself (thanks to Jory) to wear a different pair of shoes ever day (at least every work day).  Here is today’s pick:

I scored these Vince Camuto lace-up leather cognac oxfords at DSW on clearance back in 2009, I think.  And this is the SECOND time I’ve worn them.  And they are fab.  Not the most comfy but not terrible.  I need some non-slip cushions to stop my foot from sliding forward in these.  Payless BOGO, baby!

What I’m Rocking: Silky Splatter

I became obsessed with cute blouses shortly before my trip to San Francisco.  This top immediately inspired me in the Napa Ann Taylor Outlet (so much so that I bought two other similar tops.)

Black, white and grey print top:  Ann Taylor Outlet – This was on clearance for something like $30, which for me is a lot for a top so you know I was digging it.  I like the look of the silk in a machine washable textile.

Black Adrienne Vittadini wrap skirt:  Marshall’s – I got this for $10 on clearance one Sunday morning around Christmas before heading to the gym.  Ironically, it’s the first time I’ve worn it since then.

Black, purple and grey suede platforms:  DSW – I got these last year when shopping for Amy’s birthday.  They are still among my fave shoes – tall, stylish and comfortable – especially for around $50.

I totally meant to wear a great necklace but totally forgot that step in the dressing process since I was hosting an early conference call…

What I’m Rocking: Lavender Chain

I dreamed up this simple yet adorable ensemble on Sunday afternoon.  I envisioned wearing cuter shoes but since we had happy hour at Pappasito’s after work, I really wanted to be comfortable:

Lavender tissue tee:  Gap – I scored this at the Union Square Gap in San Francisco for an extra 40% off.  That means it was $5.99 after all discounts.

Black & white graphic Adrienne Vittadini pencil skirt:  Ross – I got this one Saturday afternoon in early April that I decided I needed a mini-shopping spree.  It was $22.99, but I need to spend a few bucks to have the slit pockets on the hip sewn shut.  Surely a (straight) man’s design error… 

Enzo Angiolini black croc printed slingback pumps: – I am so glad I picked these up during the site’s closing sale.  So comfy!!!  I also got the gold but am kind of wishing I’d bought two blacks and the pewter as well.  I think I paid something like $60 for two pairs with shipping!!!

I enjoyed the stuffed jalapenos and mini matador nachos along with an icy cold draft Shiner Bock.  I love going to Pappasito’s for happy hour (really anytime.)

What I’m Rocking: Nautical Galore

You guys know I am obsessed with stripes and well, everything nautical:

Black Jones New York trenchcoat with white piping:  TJ Maxx – I got this for myself for my birthday for only $59.99

White and blue striped scoopneck tee:  Old Navy – I scored this during a $5 sale earlier this spring.

Navy Essentials by ABS sailor pants:  Ross – I scored these during my mini shopping spree in early April.

Gold Enzo Angiolini slingback kitten heel pumps:  Some shoe site that went out of business – But I do remember that they were like $35!  This is my first time wearing them, so I need to break them in.

Gold hoop earrings:  NY & Co. – From back before the store started to suck

Black quilted and studded Rebecca Minkoff Mab Mini:  Gilt Groupe – I am SO in love with this bag.  What a perfect size and shape.  I see more in my future.
