The Mix

JCrew’s Fall & Winter 2013 collection was one of my favorites at New York Fashion Week. I love how the looks mixed different prints. Although it’s spring now and I’m not wearing any JCrew items here, this look is definitely inspired by that collection.

Act Two

Musing SpotMusing SpotMusing SpotMusing SpotCamel Military CoatMusing SpotMusing SpotThis coat used to be full-length. I bought it several years ago for a winter NYC visit. It served its purpose really well – keeping the majority of my body warm. However, living in Los Angeles, I knew I wouldn’t wear it much, unless I shortened it. And I’m glad I did. I would hate for this beautiful coat to just hang in my closet.

Sans Horse

I Got Stripes
