Hello fall so happy to see you! If your like me you can’t wait to throw on the hats, scarfs, coats and layers of clothing that makes fall and winter so fun to dress for. I just discovered the new line Wildheart by ESC and so far I want every piece. My stand out favorites are the poncho above, the green maxi dress and the perfect as can be floral embroidered mini shift dress both in cream and green. The line is produced in L.A. which which makes it even more attractive!

Summer pushes you to get creative with your wardrobe. With the searing heat beaming down most days I just want to be in tank tops, shorts and flip-flops. I rekindled my love affair for Carrie Bradshaw’s style after being reminded how much I admired it through B. Jones Style “What Would Carrie Wear” series post. Patricia Fields has such a knack in styling so eclectically. I love her mix of prints and the way she styled with vintage pieces. And of course those amazing shoes! This reminded me of my own shoe collection and prompted me to dust off many shoes that have not seen day light in many years ( like the shoes worn in this post, it’s been 10)!
I’m glad I did go into the deepest crevices of my closet forgetting that I myself collected all styles of shoes. I’ve always considered myself to be eclectic style wise, but some how forgot that along the way. Not only did I remind myself of this but not having a budget for shoes at the moment I have in a way “new shoes”!
On this day, Zoe and I were really enjoying the weather. We had a great experience visiting a new Church and a laughter filled lunch date with friends. Zoe had a preppy boho vibe going on, with the cutest suede chukka shoes paired with lace skirt. I tease her now because she always stated how she did not like “vintage clothes” but I see her embracing a bit of the bohemian style proving our taste does always evolve!
When I came across the new Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony editorial a nostalgic 90′s moment happened. Although much of the early 90s was influenced by the 60′s and 70′s, I remembered having so many of these key pieces in my own closet. I had the vintage baby doll dresses, wedged patent leather open back shoes (Steve Madden, I remember), knee high striped socks, nubby cardigans, plastic girl hair clips, the list goes on and on. Everything in this collection pretty much sums up what many of my own friends were wearing in the early 90′s, it was also nice to see the now revived Vision Streetwear as well.
I also love how Ms. Sevigny who’s 38 manages to look great in all these outfits and would still wear pieces like this. It’s telling that there really is no defined “age appropriate” way of dressing these days, just as long as you can pull it well together and it looks great on you! My stand out favorites are the 60′s inspired plastic see through booties (hello can I say cuuuuute) the patent leather platforms and all the dresses! It was hard editing down which pictures I would post on the blog because I adored them all, the full scope is over at The Cut.
Which are your faves?
