WIW -- Pointelle Covered Knitwear

When I read Angie's post about this trend http://youlookfab.com/2012/04/.....-knitwear/ I knew I had to partake! I get to check off the comfort, the on trend, and the age appropriate boxes with one item!

Worn a few days ago to select and pick up wholesale produce for the restaurant. I got a great price on tomatoes!

Outfit details: Willow & Clay open weave top (Dillard's while I was in Reno), 80%20 animal booties (Ideeli), True Religion jeans (from a boutique Mo took me to in Tahoe).


WIW -- MaryK's copycat challenge

Picture #1 -- Old leather coat from 1995, new distressed True Religion jeans, Edmundo Castillo spike heeled, pointy toe shoeties, Limited white shirt via TJ Maxx, J Crew neon leather belt, red bracelet from Ideeli.

I never realize how many unpaved dirt and gravel roads I have to walk on until I wear these shoes.

Picture #2 -- Inspiration. http://blog.stylesight.com/street/denim-heels

Picture #3 -- What do you think about rolling the jeans a little more? I was having fun pretending I was in a mental institution in my (still) unfinished living room. (Now I understand why women hire contractors to remodel instead of having SOs do it.)

Thanks for looking and commenting!!

J Crew Popover Tunic Arrived -- K/R?

What do we think? There is a little pulling at the bust, you can see it in pic 3.

#1 -- Tucked into matching JCrew paisley skirt with black shoes/belt.
#2 -- same as above but with nude sandals and belt.
#3 -- Worn as tunic with skinny jeans.
#4 -- Gorgeous young model, probably photo shopped
#5 -- Worn with $20 Costco yellow shirt, cropped but not photo shopped
#6 -- Worn with $20 Costco white shirt.

I was hoping I could wear this paisley popover with more than the skirt. Even on sale it was $117 with tax, shipping. For that money I like things to be more than one-shot deals. (I was planning to wear this to the opera in June in SF.)

Yay = it's worth it
Nay = stick with your $20 Costco woven shirts.

Thank you for your advice!

WIW -- A little Aida, a little Rachel Zoe

I saw this on Aida's thread, it inspired me to pull out my furry vest and go Boho (pictures 1 & 2). Now I am waving goodbye to my brown things for the season, this feels a little wintery for a Spring day!


Thanks for looking and commenting!

(Outfit details: 7FAM petite bell bottom jeans, Karen Kane animal blouse, BB Dakota vest, Lucky pendant, Michael Kors watch. Bracelet from Loehmann's.)

Micro YLF Meet-up in Tahoe with Mo + WIW

On a short trip to Tahoe I was able to meet up with the fabulous Mo/Malina who is very happy to be in the mountains again. Upon meeting Mo IRL, I was struck by her intelligence and beauty. She is so fab, and seemed to know EVERYONE in town. Plus she scored me TWO locals-only discounts!

1 -- Malina at lunch (we forgot to take a picture together or a shoe or bag snapshot!)
2 -- Our lunch at McDuff's pub. Since both of us work in restaurants, we had a lot to talk about!
3 -- My new True Religion jeans! Like I said, Mo scored me a local discount but these were still the priciest jeans ever for me. However, I haven't wanted to take them off since. They have no stretch in them yet they conform to your body over time. And they do not fall down. These are a boyfriend cut; I sized down for a straight-leg fit. Sooooo nice not to have tight thighs for once.

WIW pic isn't up to my usual standards; it was hard to take outside shots because #4 shows you the weather we were having!

Mo -- I downsized the pictures but some don't seem to go below 600 kb. Just curious what the download speed was like for you?

WIW -- London Fog Trench

... Combined with tonal separates. Tonal dressing is my #1 favorite trend of the season. Have I mentioned that I also like colored denim? ;-)

This is the only WIW I'm posting this week. I hurt my arms lifting things I shouldn't. My bf scolds me and tells me to use him. He says, "I'm your donkey." I just love donkeys.

Outfit details:
Else yellow jeans (Macys), Elements cream blouse (Macys), 80%20 spotted booties (Ideeli). Willi Smith cotton/linen sweater and London Fog trench both from TJ Maxx.
