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.

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
