I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate my belief that spending a little extra on a quality piece will go a long way. This outfit is comprised of two archived pieces and a vintage find along with a skirt from my favorite designer Marc Jacobs. The short sleeved angora sweater I have had since high school!!! I wore it in a similar way back then with a skirt and wide belt, a look that transcends time…conclusive proof that if you hold on to it, it will eventually come back in style.

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I just returned from a family trip to Santa Barbara where we spent a lot of time in the Jacuzzi and on the beach (yes the beach in December) I realized something about myself when we were away: it seems I always pack a lot of clothes, makeup and jewelry when I go on vacation with the intention of getting dressed up for dinner or even sight seeing; I rarely end up wearing any makeup, I just want to stay in sweats and shorts and I actually let my hair air-dry!!! I guess that is part of the relaxation process… that being said no blog posts were shot in SB this weekend!
Sticking to my unwritten rule about not leaving an outfit looking too “sweet” I threw a black sweater and faux leather moto jacket over this old sequined party dress. The look is dressy enough for cocktails with a friend but also casual enough for an afternoon of Black Friday shopping!! I hope you all scored some great deals this weekend, my big splurge was kitchen appliances for our upcoming reno…not very glamorous I know, but knowing I will soon I have a shiny new kitchen makes me VERY happy!!!
