Swedish Hasbeens

I wish Swedish Hasbeens would make their shoes in half sizes!

I ordered 2 pairs of the Peep Toe Super High in a 38 and 39, and ended up settling for the 38′s (I am a US size 8.5). The wooden platform on the 38′s is the right length but the leather is tight- and I have narrow, slender feet. The wooden platform on the 39′s has a little extra length (which looked fine) but I was flopping around the inside of the leather. I literally need an in between size!   Continue reading

Sam Edelman Southwestern Print Wrap Coat

I absolutely adore this woven coat.

This is my first navajo printed coat and I was actually surprised by how easy it was for me to pair an outfit around it.  Initially, I wasn’t so sure I could pull off a “southwestern” look – it’s a little out of my norm style wise.  However, this coat from Sam Edelman has a modern fitted look that looks incredible with a pair of skinny jeans and a spread lapel that looks amazing open or buttoned up (giving it it’s wrapped look). This is truly a well thought out coat.

Swagger

Swagger: A demeanor of confidence, coolness, style, and togetherness. Someone with Swagger gives of an ora of comfortability with his/her self. Swagger is commonly referred to as Swag or Swagga. 

A couple of days ago in an elevator I was told I had swagger. This came from an older gentleman whom I’ve casually ridden the elevator with a number of times now in my office building.  Apparently, I have a reputation in the building for having incredible style and confidence. This was the first I’ve heard about this and am very flattered. So I thought it would be fitting to name this post, Swagger. Especially since I was wearing this outfit on that day. Continue reading

Gray Area

I am a basics kind of girl. I like simplicity with the right fit, style and a tad bit of edge.  Everlane has become my favorite go-to brand for basic sweaters, sweatshirts and tees. Over the past couple of years, I started leaning more towards Everlane over American Apparel (I like the classic look and fit better). The only issue I have with Everlane is they run small batches, meaning items tend to sell out rather quickly.  Continue reading

Marc New York by Andrew Marc Ilena Leather Trim Wool Coat

If it isn’t already obvious by now, I have a major obsession with leather and/or very believable looking faux-leather.  I own several pairs of leather pants, almost a dozen leather jackets, and most recently a dress.  But one thing I had yet to purchase (until now) is a wool coat with leather sleeves and detailing – something I’ve wanted for quite some time now.
