This outfit is one of my lower-cost faves. My gray, sleeveless shift with the brass button detail was found at a Banana Republic outlet store more than four years ago. The mid-calf boots were bought at a DSW in Houston in, I think, 2002. The graphic-patterned Liz Claiborne trench coat was a TJ Maxx find from four years ago. And the brass cuff was picked up at Charming Charlie’s during the summer.
Trends are fun and I wholeheartedly believe in indulging in them, but buying classics will always be a good investment. To keep it modern and fun, mix it up with something trendy.
By the way, as I’m writing this post I just got home from meeting my first fellow blogger from Austin – Carrie, aka Sassy Redhead. What a great chick she is. So great I can’t even tell you. And, in addition to making me laugh so hard I snorted (whatever; don’t judge), she told me my little blog has given her some fashion inspiration. If I hadn’t already been tipsy from the Prosecco, I would have been after hearing that compliment. You made my day, Sassy Redhead!
