Down By The River

Recognize this outfit? This is what I wore to visit the Buick Design Studio a few weeks ago. Since I didn’t get any outfit photos in Detroit, I ended up repeating this outfit when I was in Chicago with my girlfriends. We walked down Michigan Avenue to do a little bit of shopping, ate lunch at Bandera, then took a walk along the Chicago River. Perfect Saturday afternoon!

    I’m so jealous you’ve gotten multiple chances to wear your faux fur vest. It hasn’t been nearly cool enough for it here, except today, but only because of Sandy- bleh.

    Your leopard socks are EVERYTHING! I’m obsessed — this get-up is the quintessential fall outfit. I miss you so stinkin’ much.

    I swear to GOD!!! I have every piece in my closet except the jewelry and my booties came from target (exact same color). We have such a similar liking to pieces but I am not as good at putting them together like you are. I am starting a blog soon. I am building it now as we speak. I hope that you will visit me. And YES, i will be using your style for my inspiration as I am slowly learning to perfect the art of creating sets and piecing items together.
