Fall Ocelots

This jacket by Alberto Makali is one of my  finds from the Nordstrom Rack Designer Event **Sigh** which I had more fun than should be allowed (seriously, there has be a limit on how many cute things they should have, it is fiscally frightening!)  I only went in for running shoes (found 2 pair that fit, after trying on about 15 pair!  This was a 'need' as opposed to a want, I had not bought running shoes for over 1 1/2 years, just rotated 3 pair, all of which are worn out).

The photo doesen't show the incredible fabric of this jacket, its almost sweater-like, but more structured, with gold threads throughout.  Cost? $45.00!  The purple dress is a find from Target last year, Converse!  So much fun to mix everything up and have a whole new outfit!  The jacket looks great with red and of course, black, for entirely different looks.  I would say its an ocelot print; I ended up buying it instead of this one.

I absolutely adore these boots, they are DKNY, over the knee, but can be worn folded down.  They look adorable over skinny jeans over the knee, but I feel like its a little much wearing them that way...




I found this belt at Target! 



They are a 5 1/2, so I have to wear heavy running socks with them, so funny!

Wow, I absolutely love this outfit. It has everything I like - faux fur, boots, leather, feminine lines with the gorgeous belt, purple to accentuate... And what I really appreciate is that you keep giving us ideas on how to do fashion with "normal person's means". Mixing and matching... A big Paris kiss for the weekend!

Fantastic outfit. The boots are amazing and I love the fact that they can be worn over the knee or folded down. The Belt looks great..I Wish I had a waist as small as yours...I'll keep dreaming :)
I love how you give us ideas of how to mix and match and using various color...I get stuck wearing a lot of beige...I need to add color more often.
Wishing you a lovely weekend
xoxo
