I Can't Help Myself


Here are a few more fall looks from Steven Alan I'm saving for cooler weather. I love the plaids (he always has the best plaids), the military inspired jackets and the ankle boots. I'm not 100% sure about the cropped trousers but they're beginning to grow on me. These are the sorts of looks I really feel like I can recreate with thrift store finds. Perhaps a Steven Alan inspired "A Girl, A Thrift Store & Twenty Bucks" post in the future?


And just for kicks, here are a few looks for the boys...

there are so simple & chic, like anyone could construct these outfits out of their own closet! love it! somehow very basic, but inspiring!

i like the purple dress in the middle! too pretty.

I love the ankle lace-up boots! The first outfit is the winnnner for me. Feminine, simple, great plaid, shape given by jacket, and pop given by the red tights.

I don't know about cropped trousers. I myself would look silly in them...I think you could pull them off, though. You do with everything else!

And yesss you should do a "A Girl, A Thrift Store & Twenty Bucks" post. MHM.

More than anything I can't get over how much I love those shoes! I checked out the store, but no dice.

i agree kelley, the ankle boots are great! it appears that shoes aren't sold at the steven alan online store, but i think they might be jeffrey campbell (a couple seasons ago?). can anybody identify the shoes? thanks for the post!

oh, i love the cropped trousers look! my biggest problem with trousers in general is pairing them with the right shoes. with a cropped look, it seems to me that there is more versatility with your choice of footware.

The guy's looks (and the guy) are really great. I am so ready for fall. We are in the middle of a heat wave in Vancouver, Canada right now; its been insane. Way too hot. I'm ready for that lovely crisp fall air.

Some great looks.

theTrendyDwarf said...

Both the guys and girls look so classy and incredible! I love them both! If only more people dressed like this...it would be a happy world? I guess if we all dressed like this though, we wouldn't be able to marvel at it and it wouldn't be so special.

LFVintage said...

This really made me want a pair of red stockings. I never thought they could fit such a wide variety of items.
I love it.

laurakitty said...

Hah, it's Jamie!

I'm also loving the red tights- they look fantastic. I'm counting down the days until I can wear tights again...

Corinna said...

i'm missing my tights in summer:( for autumn i def. have to buy some red ones as well

orders said...

All tights by Bleuforet, all Jewelry by Winifred Grace, flat lace-up boots by Keller, heeled boots are model’s own I think they were from Urban -but it was last fall.

We are getting in the tights, jewelry and some similar Keller boots in for fall.

I wish I could go vintage/thrift shopping with you! I have tried SO many times, and I never have any luck. I mean NOT ONE PIECE. The things I find that I like are never my size, and I leave empty-handed. Boo. :(

Mars said...

lovelovelove these looks :D thanks for sharing, totally saving them :)!

No wonder you have doubts about cropped pants Jennifer. Nobody looks good in cropped pants. Not even adorable 16 year old models. Cropped pants are u.g.l.y. I take that back. There is a group of people who they do suit. Middle aged golfers in plus fours. :o)

Isabel said...

Contrary to the above commenter, I'm really starting to get into cropped trousers...
