22nd September, 2011

{ vintage yves saint laurent sunnies from ebay, self-designed necklace, gifted tory burch blouse, dedegumo watch, gifted bulgari bracelet, vintage bag, zara skirt, christian louboutin shoes } it’s officially that time of year when we’re straddling seasons: summer brights suddenly feel silly, but it’s not yet cool enough for full-on fall layers. so i’ve got a little of everything in here: lace-up sandals, meet color-blocked skirt (black and navy, every new york girl’s favorite combo!), meet autumn-auburn blouse. plus a bag passed down from my great-grandmother ~ for me, the best part.

    Love your style! It's a little bit retro and very awesome)

  • Chessa!

    I adore this outfit. it's so sophisticated and classic but also so modern. I have inherited so many little things from my grandmothers and great grandmothers. I treasure them! and it's funny bc I first read your post yesterday and then I was over in soho last night running an errand and I saw a bag in the window of armani exchange that bears a striking resemblance! same shape, color, similar clasp even! but nothing can beat the history and sentiment of yours pictured here. I carried a tiny sequins clutch at my wedding that my grandmother wore to hers and everyone needed to know where I found it…it was my something old and so special.

  • Louisa

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love the auburn colors for fall.

    love this outfit! quite sophisticated!


  • Tina Z

    It is definitely an Auburn-themed outfit! Whether you intended the title as a double entendre, I don't know, but it works since orange and navy = Auburn colors.

  • miss twinkletoes

    I have always loved those shoes – and once almost bought them – now I am definitley rethinking that choice – need to find them!

    great pics!

    The colour of that blouse is so spot on for fall. Love it.
