milk carton ad

Ever this I saw this photo (via Vanessa Jackman) I've been wearing all jackets, blazers and sweaters resting on my shoulders. Isn't it amazing how it can look and feel like an entirely new piece of clothing this way?

For inquiring minds, I worked on my fall WANT list this past weekend and I think I've done pretty well thus far. Picked up this camel blazer you see here at a thrift store (probably will pick up a warmer camel coat later though), a camel beret, a few saddle bags, this leopard print stole (from ModCloth), a wide brim felt fedora hat and a sheer skirt.

My only nemesis: THESE CANVAS WEDGE BOOTS. I had my eye on a pair at a store on Haight Street, only to show up on Saturday to find out they were completely sold out. So I thought, no biggie, I'll find them online. NOPE. Not a single pair online in the color I wanted (tan). Nada. Zilch. Zippo! How can the entire internet be sold out?

Hence, I turn to you, lovelies, consider this my ad on the milk carton for a missing child: "Have you seen these boots? Please contact Krystal at krystal@weardrobe.com."

Thanks guys and I hope everyone has a great week ahead!

  1. Hate when that happens. it makes the item that much more desired after you can't get it. Hope you find your coveted boots! And love the camel blazer draped over the shoulders.

  12. I was shopping at a thrift store with my mom today looking specifically for coats and fall jackets. I found this gorgeous cream wool coat with black accents (ended up being way too big) that only had one button at the base of the collar. My mom did not like the coat at all because she said "what is the point in having a coat that doesn't do up". Of course we then had to have a conversation about how fashion is not about the coat doing up, but how the coat looks on! Guaranteed: she would have a lot to say if I showed up at her house wearing a coat this way.
    Luckily, I am not my mom. I think it looks great!
