The online shopping has gotten a bit out of control, lately. I think it started last Fall, when I started to offset my holiday gift purchases with investment-piece purchases for myself. But it’s January now, and after some serious number-crunching, I’ve decided that I need to draw the line. It’s going to be all about window-shopping now, and I can at least make it count by working with what I already have in the closet.
Today it’s about inspiring an outfit with my 1 week-old Current/Elliott The Ankle Skinnies in Fig Leopard. These jeans are everything. Wear them with any basic top and still feel like you stand out from the crowd. They’re a perfectly faded shade and the denim is nice and stiff, ensuring that they never look like cheap leggings.
Here’s something I created on Polyvore, and it kind of rocks my world. I think my Vince sweater can sub for the Alexander Wang, and I just found an amazing black cotton trench at a thrift store in Fremont last month. My new 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent tote has the same slouchy oversized look as the PS1 (though it’s not nearly as kick-ass). I can probably scrounge up a great cuff somewhere in my jewelry box and I definitely have a cool scarf lying around in my closet. I’ve been wearing these jeans rolled up at the ankle, but that’s just me. I’m thinking I might live in these on the weekends this winter, as I just haven’t been in the skirt and tights mood lately.
