Completely Gratuitous Outfit Post






What I’m Wearing
* Burberry Trench Coat …the shorter version. ..last seen here. This is a “pencils only” item …meaning, I use no pens while wearing this coat fearing a mark that will last longer than time itself …and considering this jacket will still be in style 20 years from now, I don’t think I’m being too anal about it. lol.
* Diesel Jeans …from …last seen here
* Jones NY white sweater {which really isn’t as short when not posing} …hits the top of my jeans -thrifted ages ago.
* NY Metal Lights Gold hoop earrings -etsy
* Vintage silk scarf
* Vintage leather belt …seen here
* {very} Vintage Sears boots found on ebay …these are actually knee high and lace all the way up. I folded them over and wrapped the laces around them to give them a new look.
* American Apparel thigh high socks …pushed down and worn as thick scrunch socks
* Tom Ford “Yvette” sunglasses
* D&G gold watch {gilt sale}
* Hair : Air dried -clipped/and/or/bun

Location : Benedict Canyon near Mulholland …my drive to & from the art gallery.

My father-in-law just bought us a new mattress for our bed and omg it’s so amazingly comfortable I’m finding it more and more difficult to get out of it in the morning. I really cannot wait for tomorrow …just so I can sleep in and in and in. Husband and I have been sleeping on an almost 30 year old mattress for reasons that just seam ridiculous now that we have a new bed. Our thought was that when we moved into a house, we’d upgrade to a king and use this as a guest bed …but clearly we’ve stayed where we are much longer than we thought and our backs have suffered tremendously {along with my psyche ;)}.

Is everyone happy with the Project Runway results? …I dunno, I thought the collections were kinda boring but understand why they chose Irena {and I did love the hats}. I loved Carol Hannah’s first dress so much I would buy it right now if I could …also, I love the way her model walks. So graceful …but I didn’t catch the model show yet to see who won. Is it the model who has the winning designer?

. . . .

Isn’t it insane how different it looks not only with my hair up but with a different background? Of course I like the set above better {a few more images here} but this one shows the clothes/colors better.

    i love what you did with those boots to create a new look. i did something similar with my black heeled knee-high boots– i folded them down and back up so it looks like a cuff on a calf length bootie (pictures on my blog). great way to get more mileage out of your clothes.

    Great outfit! I love the pencils only rule, it seems like I always manage to absent-mindedly mark things with pens, the latest being my car dashboard 🙁

    You always inspire me to up my game when it comes to daily outfits. Love the casual yet “I’m kinda better than you” vibe from this one. 😉

    Whew. Folding over those boots was a stroke of genius – love it!

    Nice sweater and I think it’s good how you’ve got the sleeves folded back over the coat. I liked your last photo best as it wasn’t so easy to see things so well in your backlit shots, and the colours get muted. I feel like I need sunglasses to view the backlit ones; that’s some pretty major sunlight you’ve got over there! 🙂 An extra shot on Flickr was nice too – the one where you’re gazing into the distance with your hair down. I followed your helpful link to see a map showing Benedict Canyon. I used the satellite view, which I always like best. There were more houses around than I was expecting, but it still looks like you must get some good views driving along it. And hey, there’s Sunset Boulevard not far away – I’ve heard of that! – Keith

    First of all, your outfit is GORG! Luv it. Second of all, I knew Irina was going to win because of the hats (I did luv them) and other accessories that made her collection look more…well, like a collection. I was more in luv with Carol Hannah’s collection and REALLY wanted her to win. I agree, her first outfit was hot and I personally loved the pink one that looked like a bottle cork-all that tule…luv it! And yes, the model of the winner automatically wins. Her name escapes me right now but she was always really really sweet (the one that beotch model accused of wearing sticky tape and kept going on and on about it). I’m happy for her also.

    I have to say I’m happy to see some cooler-weather gratuitous outfit posts because I’m constantly jealous of the weather in your hood!! I loved Carol Hannah’s dress, too. I knew they’d pick Irena though. It was so obvious, I thought, given her track record this season. She did have some great clothes though so I can see why.

    the lighting in these is beautiful! nice work:)

    i was happy with irena, she was just so much more developed – i felt like i would go out and buy a lot of her pieces (although Carol Hannah had some adorable things too!)

  • Hanako66

    love this…stunning and rugged…so cool!

    and I adored Carol Hannah’s first dress…and a lot of her collection. It was more “me” but I get why she didn’t win!

  • tank tops

    February 6, 2013 |

    The layered tank top look is both a trendy look and a classic staple of female clothing. However, some people have taken that look and destroyed it because they didn’t understand the simple rules involved when layering tank tops.
