As my dear friends know only too well, I’m not really a dress/skirt person. I’m totally that girl who shows up to weddings or engagement parties wearing a blouse, heels and dress pants rather than put on a skirt like every one else. In fact, I can count the number of times I’ve donned one in the last year on one hand (not including mandatory work dress code, of course).Quite a sad stat, but that’s likely to change since I picked up this bad boy. Super soft jersey, just-right midi length, and a grey that doesn’t totally look like sweatshirt material. If this is the other side of pants, consider me officially on board.

T Minus 14 Days

Collaage

November is here which means we’re only a glorious two weeks away from one of the most anticipated collaborations ever (in my humble opinion, of course). Drum roll please… it’s time for Isabel Marant for H&M! By now I’m sure most of you have peeped the goods and are counting down the days until it hits stores on the 14th. The collection is a little pricey (the beautiful embellished jacket at the top left is a cool $320), but at only a fraction of the designer’s normal price range, all the pieces feel like a steal. In addition to the jacket, I have my eye on the white embroidered top (in top right picture) and a pair of printed silk trousers, though I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I didn’t see any of her signature Dicker boots. What pieces have you been drooling over?

Mimicry

I love a good fashion find that doesn’t break the bank (who doesn’t?!), and when the item in question is reminiscent of a big deal designer piece? Even better. The second I spotted these gilttery sneakers, shark tooth necklace and studded slingbacks I was reminded of similar versions from Miu Miu, Givenchy and Valentino. At just a fraction of the designer price tag, these were styles that I could actually afford. Pretty well every time I wear the pumps one of my super chic friends (you know who you are!) has to do a double take, thinking I miraculously acquired a pair of Valentino kicks. Until that becomes a reality, I’m happy rocking these excellent specimens of fashion mimicry.
