Anna Karenina

by Jessica Sturdy on December 5, 2012

When my friend, Rose, saw this outfit, she said, “You look very Anna Karenina.” Mission accomplished.

Banana Republic sent me this faux fur scarf from the Anna Karenina Collection to style. It’s so cozy and chic. The quality is excellent, as well! There are so many ways to wear this type of snood/scarf/stole… I’m excited to add it on to my outfits this winter for some extra glam and texture!

My girlfriends and I decided to get all gussied up last Sunday for some mimosas and brunch! I mean, who doesn’t drink mimosas on a Manhattan rooftop in their Sunday best just for the heck of it?! :)

Jen, Rose, me, Tracy

Cheers!

Thank you, Catherine! It’s my first black faux fur piece so I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of it!

You look INCREDIBLE! I love that outfit! Plus, although the skirt (color in specific) is trendy, it will definitely be a staple piece to hold on to for many seasons to come! You look so holiday perfect, I really love the whole look!

Jessica December 6, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Thank you! “Oxblood” may be trendy this fall, but I don’t think a color really ever goes “out” of style, ya know? I can wear this “burgundy” skirt for years to come.

Everything about this look is gorgeous-the colors, print and fur scarf! I’m also a huge fan of Essie’s Butler Please. I can’t stop wearing it!

Fur is my favorite, I throw it on over everything – and this little snood would be no exception! You look gorgeous (once again) and I love that burgundy lip. xxx

My fur vest is my go-to all fall/winter long, but I’m thinking this scarf is going to make an appearance quite a few times!

I love everything about your outfit. I’ve been eyeing a fuax fur stole from Express recently, and I believe that this post has just inspired me to go get it. Also, I really like the outfits that your friends are wearing too. I was trying to pinpoint one thing that I really liked about each outfit, but honestly, I like everyone’s entire outfit.

What lip color do you have on? It’s such a beautiful shade!

Reply

Jessica December 6, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Thank you! It’s actually not a produced shade. It was a shade sample from work that I tried on… We ended up choosing a slightly different shade so they let me keep it. It’s one of a kind! ha :)

Ah this makes me miss NYC brunches!! Love love your scarf! x

Reply

Jessica December 6, 2012 at 10:25 pm

Thank you! Gotta love NYC “brunch,” which just means day drinking. haha. Well in this case, we had a few mimosas on the roof and then went to a non-alcoholic brunch. Money saving tactics :)

Sabina December 5, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Great outfits, and your friends’ outfits too, especially the fur collars and patterned tops. Also love the sequiny party outfit snaps in that other post. Found you on Lucky Community btw.

LOVE your lips this color. Not only does it compliment the skirt (for obvious reasons) but I think it’s a great color for your skin tone!

Don’t know what brought about the makeup changes, including the addition of lipstick, but it really, really works. Nice look all around!

Reply

Jessica December 6, 2012 at 10:20 pm

No makeup changes. Wearing the exact same makeup that I wear every single day, just added the lip color. I think it was the lighting being on a roof!

Reply

Deanna December 6, 2012 at 11:08 pm

Aw, that sounds like such a fab time! Love that you’re adding lip lately!
