Got home and then realized I had to go back into work. At 10 pm. Got to bed at 1 am. Have to be up at 5:30 am. Ughs!
On a brighter note, A Girl's Guide to Shoes introduced me to a new lover today. This Jeffrey Campbell bootie looks so much like my current Chloe obessession (see right rail) that I think he's The One. He's my Fall 2008 bootie. I think we will be very happy together.

Built the outfit around this pencil skirt today. Loves it. Makes me feel like a candy cane. Bought it resale a million years ago. Has always fit quite snugly so I don't wear it much. Today I wore it super high waisted. Probably shouldn't have bought it due to the fit but bought it frankly for the label.
Once upon a time I loved Tocca. Very feminine aesthetic with gorgeous details (the pockets KILL me.) The line was very popular in the 90s. Not sure how it faded away. But I still associate the brand with Helena Christensen who'd wear their dresses with that perfect casual elegance of a European woman.
Today I felt very retro. A little naughty secretary too. A pencil skirt always does that for me. Reminds me a bit of this delicious DVF look for fall. I really want to belt over jackets and sweaters but I think the degree of difficulty is too high for this belting grasshopper.
Paired the feminine shape of the skirt with this more masculine jacket. It's Behnaz Sarafpour's nod to tuxedo jackets. $30. Love the sheen of the banded collar and the bracelet length sleeves.
I've always dreamed of owning a tuxedo. Preferably by YSL. In white and black. I mean a woman needs options ;)
But am realizing as I'm wait around to be a billionaire that just a tuxedo jacket might do. Pairs so nicely with a wispy gliterry evening dress.
Felt the outfit needed something. More of a pop. So added the plaid headband. Got it in Chicago last December when I was visiting Peaches. At a funny little accessories store that sold a bunch of knockoffs.
