I've been wandering around, making up movies in my head...*

10-26-09

sweater: thrifted men's
skirt: vintage
coat: vintage girl's duffle coat
shoes: vintage ankle boots
purse: vintage Coach bag
hat: vintage wool beret
* listening to: Circa Survive - Juturna "Meet Me In Montauk"

Looking back at the beginnings of this blog, I can't believe I stopped to take an outfit photo every single day. But, then again, that's when I was living in LA and going to a "real job" everyday so it was easier to stop along the way and snap a few photos. Now it seems I'm lucky to squeeze in only one or two outfits a week - something I'm going to try to get better about going forward.

Here's an example of a "casual day" outfit that I normally wouldn't stop to take photos in. I was inspired by the APC collections and wanted to do something sort of classic all-American (which, I know is a bit ironic since APC is French). The duffle coat was in a pile of to-be-sold items but I think I'll be selfishly hanging onto it for myself for now.

one of my favorites parts about this outfit is that the striped on your sweater are an unexpected hunter green! it really looks lovely with the coat.

Market Publique said...

So funny, I'm going back and catching up with some of your posts, and I am photographing a bag just like yours but in green and a plaid jumper kind of like the one from the previous post for our site! Check back to see - They're eerily similar!
