Adrien: Rocking the Tweed.

Now, this is something oh-so-slightly different for me. I bought this jacket a few years back at Rugged Warehouse, aka The Place Clothes Go to Die. That store is 95% crrrrrap, but every now and then they get in something good. This jacket is a bit of a departure for me because it's all structured and tweedy, but the fabric has teal and metallic thread running through it so I think that keeps it from being too stuffy.

I'm not sure about my proportions here. I think maybe my skirt should be a bit shorter to make up for the longer jacket, but overall it's not too bad. I made sure to throw some color in with a very excellent hand-painted silk scarf made by my friend Crystal. It's got skulls on it! She makes great stuff.

Anyway, the outfit:

jacket: J. Crew (similar)
t-shirt: Banana Republic (similar)
skirt: Gunex (similar)
shoes: Frye (similar)
bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAM
Crystal J Silk


  1. Mmmm, I love that bag. And the jacket is great! I know you can't wear jeans, but can you wear denim in a pencil skirt? I love tweed with denim.

  2. I love tweed it's so classic and that bag is fabulous!
