What I’m Wearing
* Eryn Brinie silk sleeveless shirt dress from Gilt. I’ve had this for a couple months now actually, hanging on the back of my closet door in its plastic bag. It claims to be black but it came with a black ribbon tie belt and against that, it looks navy. So I’m going with navy. And I swapped the belt it came with for this brown studded skinny belt which I found at a thrift shop ages ago. {seen here on my wrist}
* Vintage silk scarf knotted around neck
* Burberry Trench coat …never did I think I’d need a coat in July but it was FREEZING all day until about 3:30 …then chilly again at dusk.
* Via Spiga lace up wedges …and I would have almost preferred a flat lace up oxford {which I don’t have in a brown leather but is now on the “need to buy” list} or even a sandal may have worked but the weather prevented open toes and bare legs. I chose legs.
* Tom Ford Anouk – cat eye sunglasses
* Leather backpack …mine from the 90’s

I bought this leather backpack in or around 1995 for $75. I remember the price because at the time I was 18 and thought $75 for a bag was outrageous {my mom still thinks $75 for a bag is outrageous}. It was one of the first things I splurged on really that wasn’t necessary and I also remember how good it felt to buy such an item and carry it proudly. I actually had quite a bit of a bank account at the time because 6months prior I had done a Burger King commercial {@ 2:40} and residuals were pouring in …every Saturday to be exact. I would so look forward to Saturdays because my mail box would be full of envelopes with checks in each of them. It was a fun time to say the least.

I’m not sure if it’s the 90’s vibe in the air or what but this backpack has been popping in and out of my mind for a while now so I was giddy when I randomly found it the other day while unpacking the guest bedroom. Admittedly, I can’t decide which bag I like better with the outfit …they both give off a different quality: Louis Vuitton being expensive and a bit snooty & the backpack, well I’m just not sure. What I am sure about is that many of you will turn your nose up at it. But just wait. In a couple of years, you’ll probably want one too 😉
