An outfit made up of mostly things I’ve had for a long time…except for this amazing Chanel-inspired rainbow boucle jacket I picked up at Vintage Martini recently. It’s so much fun, I’ve been dying to wear it. A lot of color going on with this look I’m wearing and I’m okay with it…with a jacket this fun, you have to go a bit wild!

Wearing vintage Levi’s cut-offs with an Al Jarreau tour shirt, vintage boucle jacket, Aquazzura heels, and Dolce & Gabbana bag.

I knew I had to have these velvet Tibi boots when I first saw them a few months back. Crushed velvet acid orange kitten heel boots? Sounds right up my alley. I ordered them as soon as they became available and they were everything I hoped they would be. I own so many weird 70s and 80s kooky granny dresses and these boots are the perfect juxtaposition for styling them. I also love these with cropped frayed flare jeans and rock tees with an oversized blazer. I threw them on with some dangly earrings and an old favorite vintage dress for some wedding meetings on Monday.

I could not love them more. I haven’t been finding many shoes I go bananas for lately, so to feel so fulfilled by a shoe purchase makes me quite happy as devoted shoe lover. A boot like this is so unusual that it can’t go out of style. I am now wanting the gorgeous dark teal version of these boots too! A girl can dream. Definitely my pick for “shoe of the season”!

Some items on my current want list. I’m trying to clean my closet right now and while I’m all stocked up on 80s poof dresses, I realize I’m lacking in some wardrobe basics, like a sleek pair of black trousers. Gravitating towards the unusual and bizarre is just kind of my style and part of who I am, but there will always be part of me that wishes I could be more minimalist at times. These are some the more parred down looks I dream about. I really do love a good Outnet find like this smoking jacket!
