Adrien: And Now It's Raining.

More weird weather! It's warm and raining so I don't feel like I need to bundle up so I went for my favorite LOFT dress with short sleeves: 

This is the LOFT Leopard Flare dress and it's a good one. Still available in a few sizes (and very on sale) but definitely size down per my review. LOFT has some good a-line options. This Stripetop dress in particular is calling my name and the cute Spacedye dress looks to be the exact same cut as my leopard dress. Not that you can see much of my tights, but I want to mention that when I don't need Spanx I wear my Commando matte opaque tights because they have a lovely non-constricting wide band of stretchy stuff instead of a waistband so they don't cut in at all. I love them. 

I added my ancient Gap tuxedo jacket so I don't freeze to death which reminds me that I really should look for an upgraded version. (It's seen better days.) Jackets are a hard fit for me, but this one by Juicy Couture looks really good and this Rebecca Minkoff is beautiful except for the price. Finally, this Mural jacket at Nordstrom is definitely worth checking out for the price alone!

A close-up for some shiny lapel action. I'm wearing the cool Madewell Ensign necklace that Marianne gave me for Christmas along with two G&B skinny railroad spike cuffs, and a skinny Pied de Biche cuff that Kate gave me for my birthday! I have nice friends. 

Same old awesome MBMJ Mag Bag in Fool's Gold. There are a couple of different styles on eBay in this color - a Faridah in decent condition* and this satchel which looks to be in great condition*. If eBay isn't for you, go with something like this structured gold satchel from Kate Spade.

Finally, I'm wearing my cuoio Loeffler Randall Matilde boots because they needed to feel loved:

I will again stress that the older version of this boot made in Italy is better quality than the newer ones which are made in Brazil. If you're not weirded out about secondhand boots (and you wear a size 7) pounce on this eBay auction*!  

*None of the eBay auctions are mine so please proceed with caution and ask questions before bidding!



  2. We must live the same city...the weather has been crazy which makes it hard to get dressed AND pick the right outerwear AND footwear. Snowboots, rainbows or just regular boots. I've worn all three in the past week.
