I loved this sweater when it was given me to play around with! It was oversized and comfortable but there were lots of areas of discoloration.

Winter Wardrobe Week!!

Nov 25, 2014 | One Comment

I’ve arrived to the wintry Colorado temperatures to spend some quality time with some of my favorite people. It feels amazing to have a little taste of the cold weather right now! I couldn’t have packed more sweaters and coats for this short trip, though. The amount of pieces that I fit into my check on bag…astonishing. A girls gotta be prepared, right?

These are just a few pieces that you’ll see over the next few days…

Loving this 80s dress with that aqua suede panel front and center. It’s like my Miss America sash!!

Straight outta Working Girl!

Yep, those are screen printed feathers.

This is one of those pieces where people were shaking their heads and saying to themselves, “does that girl know what she’s buying?”

Basic sweater with some not-so-basic discoloration. I have plans for this glorious oversized sweater that’s going to be perfect when paired with my snow boots!
