Taupe has been the color on my mind lately. It feels a little more luxurious than camel at the moment and has an 80’s vibe that I love. I was really inspired by the styling of taupe at the Ralph Lauren 2015 Fall show, and since then I’ve been dreaming of adding a few key taupey pieces to my wardrobe! I happened upon this amazing 80’s military inspired jacket when I was at Salvation Army last week. The jacket was $10 dollars but it was half price day so I got it for $5! What a steal, not to mention it has a Neiman Marcus label on the inside. I’ve been belting everything lately with my Ralph Lauren concha belt! It’s the Texan in me.
When I found this vintage teddy bear sweater, I knew it was coming home with me. Maybe it’s the sweater’s plushie-ish qualities, but I kind of just wanted to adopt it, name it, and maybe take it for a walk. I named this sweater Teddy Ruxpin, in honor of the amazing Lie Witness News Segment from Jimmy Kimmel (how are those humans for real??). I got this sweater from Vintage Martini, and it is a homemade sweater made by a presumable visionary. If I could ever track her down I’d love to know what else she DIYed.
You might of heard, but New York was extremely cold. It was painful to walk outside most of fashion week. I was happy whenever I got to take shelter in my cozy room at the Soho Grand. My favorite home-away-from home, with the best lobby of any hotel!
When I picture Carine Roitfeld at her most “Carine”, I think of the looks she does in snappy pencil skirts and dominatrix-like laced boots. She wears this combination a million ways but I am most inspired by the looks she does swathed in a Rick Owens or a Comme des Garcons jacket. It’s such a great look and so undeniably Carine. I’ve had my eyes on these stunning cage boots by Paul Andrew for a while now. Paul Andrew is doing some of the best shoes out there…and I think Carine needs a pair of these!
