I've worn my new Elizabeth and James Holland Rabbit and Cayote fur a few times now but I realized that I'd never done a style post. That and my friend V asked to see how I wear mine after buying my extras from the last blog sale. I had also never worn my thrifted Red Valentino dress before because it's not as flattering as I'd like, but I figured everything looks fabulous under my fur.
So V, this one is for you :)
From head to toe:
- Earrings: Lionette, sample sale, $20 (they told me they retailed for about $180)
- Coat: Elizabeth and James Holland, sample sale, $99 (retail $1,495)
- Dress: Red Valentino, thrift store, $8 (approx. retail $400-600)
- Ring: Lionette "Nadine", sample sale, $20 (retail $180)
- Shoes: Vince Camuto Tecca, Nordstrom Rack, $0.01 (retail $159)
My $2000+ look cost less than $150 OOP. #Score!
I had high hopes for my penny Vince Camutos but by the time I got home last night my toes were bleeding. I literally had to Photoshop the dripping blood out of the pics LOL. Again, I stand behind my opinion that open toe boots are stupid.
Linking these pieces and similar for you to shop - or simply appreciate my thriftiness...
All photos were taken by my lovely 10 year old son. He's getting better, no?
Another tiny confession - I'm not wearing any eye makeup here other than my Korres mascara. I try not to pile on a face on a daily basis. In full disclosure, I'm wearing my Dr. Jart black label BB cream, Benefit Erase Paste, Benefit Coralista blush and Miley Cyrus Viva Glam lipstick and that's it.
It's been such a great year for me - I have completely rebuilt my wardrobe with beautiful designer pieces that I picked up for next to nothing. This coat is definitely in my top ten finds for the year. Even more good news, PAX closets are on sale at IKEA starting the 26th so it's finally happening people! My lovelies will finally have a proper home! It's only 15% off but you know I can't pay full price.
What are you looking forward to in the new year? I'm just so excited to see where my journey will take me...fingers crossed for fashion week!
