T.G.I.F 10.24.14

Current Obssessions

Here's some favorite things I noticed this week.  

A couple of these I have been obsessing over ie. that deer print coat, the match stick earring and that Sophie Hulme bag and the idea of a fur clutch bag is still tempting after two years.

1.    Mango Biker Jacket. Also comes in green, grey and black
2. Mango midi pleated skirt. The style goes with any sweatshirt or knit
3. Stuart Weitzman Hitimes ponyhair boots
4. Mykita round stainless steel sunglasses
5.  Smith Mara Pave Diamond Match Stick Crawler earring
6. Sophie Hulme Envelope bag.  In a wearable dark green
7.  Meli Melo Shearling pouch bag.  Wear this clutched under your arm with a big coat
8. Topshop Faux Fur Animal Throw On coat.  A cool update from leopard print
9. Topshop funnel neck top.  Layer over something short or over a floor sweeping skirt

I had to ask Renata

wrap skirt

"My skirt is by Dries Van Noten and the jacket is vintage."

Her take on the usual denim jacket is just brilliant and don't get me started on her skirt!

I say do a quick DIY version from this earlier post with a mens shirt.   I love the length of hers so a long tunic tied also works. I see the skirt working in different fabrics too: felt, wool, jersey as well as cotton like hers.   Get tying!   If you try it tweet me a pic will you?

 I Instagrammed a how-to video of a plaid self tie skirt that I had at home have a peek @karenbritchick (Instagram and Twitter).

Preview: Alexander Wang x H&M

Alexander Wang x H&M

Yesterday I checked out the collaboration.  

Stock photos and shots on models don't help me understand what the clothes are like in real life - hence making a point to see the clothes in person.

This structured wool motor jacket is my personal favorite.
