This look is all about the choker. I got it at a Western boutique in Portland OR over 20 years ago. Accessories are the frosting of a great look: that’s why I always purchase quality, take good care and keep them forever. Cover yourself with the good stuff. Tip on being unique: stay clear of the mass produced, cheap stuff. Support artisan’s and your style dial will reach a new high. The J.Crew blouse is from 2009. Current/Elliott skirt is from 2015 and a wardrobe stable of mine. Boots: Vince Camuto. Yes, you’ve seen them before. I wear them ALL THE TIME cause they are so frickin cool.

This is my out-and-about-getting-shit-done look. I’ve had the jacket since the 90’s. Sure it was meant to be a trend but I turned it into a keeper. Found these Isabel Marant jeans on the Clearance rack at Nordstrom Rack. That means they went from Designer to Designer Sale to Nordstrom Rack to Rack Sale to Rack Clearance without anyone snagging them. How does that happen??!? Don’t care. We were meant to be. Mine for over 5 years and won’t let them go. T-shirt? Of course Love First. Making tree-hugging hip through the power of self-love….

Last & final look (whew!). Totally spontaneous. Plan was to bring back parts of look #1 but my mood switched. Skirt purchased 7 years ago in San Francisco. Would I purchase a brand new leather piece today? Nope. There are so many amazing sustainable options now. However, this one is made from hide of a cow that was bred for the food industry (not just for the sake of leather) so it’s got that going for it.  Certain I will get another 10 years out of it, it’s so amazing. Boots are by Fiorentini + Baker, purchased 12 years ago. Been resoled twice. Why? I mean…did you see the buttons? Top by Elizabeth and Jainey. Gal-pal was like “done!” I was like “I’ll take!” And that’s a wrap.
