It seems that from this point until about mid-March, you may not see my personal style without a jacket and/or cold weather accessory in the shot, with a sprinkling of precipitation for extra measure! Lots of warm, wool layers are a must, with thick, nubby socks crammed into boots and as many long sleeves as I can wear without looking too bulky on top. My best friend got me this sweater for Christmas, and it is just absolutely perfect in every way; I’m one of the most difficult people to shop for, and she pretty much nails it every time! She anticipated that I would fancy it up with accessories, so Jamie, this one’s for you!
I’m feeling like dressing a bit more paired down for 2015, revisiting some classic silhouettes anew, like this 8-lace Dr. Martens and a vintage (from 1992) Louis Vuitton Epi Noe Bowler Bag, which came into popularity right around the time the aforementioned “Docs” were on the rise — could two styles ever be so different? In the 1990s, pairing these together wouldn’t have worked, but today, the mixing of styles, decades, and high and low brans is au curant as it will ever be. My jacket harks back to another time as well, 2002, and can’t believe I’ve had it with me through all of my apartment moves and style changes; classic pieces have the potential to take the style lead and see you through life’s changes.
