I am really happy I am finally able to wear something other than shorts. It’s nice to finally wear clothes you readers have wearing for weeks – cardigans, booties, long-sleeves. I created a Polyvore of this same outfit but with the J Crew Seacomb Sweater. Unfortunately, the sweater completely covered up the Arced Crosshatch Blouse, which was not my intention. I wanted to keep the look in the black/gray color scheme and when looking through my sweater boxes I came across my J Crew Plaid Boyfriend Cardigan. So I also give you a little pattern mixing.

(I have 2 pair in this color. I cannot express how much I love these jeans.)
Now, here’s a quick little Shoes-day about the Perry Peep-Toe Booties. 
I’ve had my eye on these little booties for a while. I was very leary of making a purchase because they looked like the same style as the Odeon Oxford Booties which did not work out for me because they ran small. I hadn’t seen anyone mention these until The Chic Chauffeur wore them a few weeks ago. She confirmed my suspicions that they fit just like the Odeon’s. 
When JC offered 30% off sale I ordered these in a 7 1/2 as opposed to my usual size 7. They were just a little tight in the width when I first put them on but stretched a bit as I wore them throughout the day. I like the menswear pinstripe tweed on the gray tweed. It’s such a fun bootie and I may try to wear them with Blythe Shirtdress. 
Speaking of the Blythe Shirtdress, I saw it in the San Antonio La Cantera store for $59.99 plus 30% on Thursday in both the Navy and Poppy. Also, there was one more Merino Skirt in a Large on sale and lots of the Maisie Dress in Getaway Green for $59.99 plus 30% off. Just putting that out there if you were looking for any of those. 
Have a great day! 

Tuesday we finally had our first hint of Fall weather. Temps dropped to the 70s! So not only did I wear a sweater but also some boots. Yes, probably a little over-kill for today but I couldn’t contain my excitement over the cool air. I finally was able to wear one of my Missoni for Target items.

Cardigan as outerwear: Missoni for Target Long Cardigan
Sweater: J Crew Silkspun in Toasted Honey
Jeans: J Crew Ankle Stretch Toothpick
Boots: Pebbled and Primped Boots

The yellow in the cardigan is almost an exact match to the The Toasted Honey sweater.

Have a great day!


I am beyond excited. What started out as Date Night for me and The Boy tonight turned into a giddy night for me. I found out Tim Gunn…THE TIM GUNN from Project Runway is coming to San Antonio. To MY mall!!!

He is hosting a Fall 2011 Fashion Show with Lucky Brand on October 8 at La Cantera in San Antonio. On top of that, October 6 you can go to an open casting call to possibly be picked to be in the fashion show. AND…if you spend $100 or more you between October 2-8 you “will be professionally photographed with TIM GUNN (!!!) and will receive a personalized signed copy of his NY Times best selling book Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making it Work.” The awesome thing that was said about the casting call is that they are looking for “real San Antonio people”.

I am freaking excited about this. I was unable to to attend FNO due to family priorities but being able to see and/or meet Tim Gunn would be awesome. I think he is so genuine and honest on Project Runway and it would be so amazing to meet him, even for 1 minute.

Now you know I will be spending $100+ at Lucky Brand but I am also going to “Make it work” by going to the open casting call. I tried to convince The Boy but you have to be at least 16 and he’s only 15…boooo! He would have been picked, my handsome, awesome, gray-blue eyed young man. Visit La Cantera online for more information.

And here’s my “Date Night” OOTD.

Sweater: J Crew Seacomb Sweater, Rustic Navy, S
Jeans: J Crew Ankle Toothpick (LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simple 70 in Navy
Husband thinks I’m completely cuckoo but I don’t care. What do you think?
