Fall 2009 Outfits my style wearing my DIYs

Mixing Floral & Leopard Prints





What I’m Wearing
80s-60's-hair-bow-leopard-coat-2* Vintage leopard coat. My grandma made this in the 1960’s. It’s one of my absolute favorite pieces I own. The last time I wore it was at our wedding reception …oh wait, and the following New Year’s Eve. Leopard was huge in 2006 and clearly in the 60’s as well. It’s a staple and a pattern that always makes a comeback. It’s classic. {also seen here}

* Cynthia Steffe silk dress …snatched this from gilt.com last week!

* Steve Madden wooden heeled booties …from 2006 …and I’m not thrilled with them for this look but a more classic shoe was too much of a vintage throw-back. This needed a more modern shoe but again, I’m not 100% with these.

* 80’s beaded hair bow barrette. This was actually mine from the 80’s. I’m sure my mom and I shared it actually. But this morning I pulled my hair to the side and thought to myself “…I wish I had one of those big barrettes that would just hold this mass in place” …and then it came to me.

* Tom Ford Yvette Sunnies

* Vintage earrings …grandma’s

* Vintage Gucci handbag …found this on ebay about 10 years ago.


* Necklaces : My Gold Baubles DIY necklace, Vintage pearls and rhinestones all layered on top of each other


I’m 99% sure my Grandma is channeling me this week …although I do love to use the entire month of October as a chance to dress up a bit more. It’s a combination of the weather …still warm but with enough chill to add new pieces into the wardrobe rotation and of course, Halloween. {all of which you already know if you follow me on twitter} I’ve been dying to wear this coat again and when I returned home yesterday to find a Gilt box on my doorstep, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to not only wear it but to jump head first in the pattern on pattern trend that had escaped me prior. What’s funny is that any other solid jacket or blazer I paired with this dress just looked boring and so usual …but I may try again later this winter. However, shooting my outfit shots this morning with leafy and colorful trees behind me was a mistake …because they just added another pattern to the shot …another something you already know if you follow me on twitter
