{outfits} This Week in Fashion

Happy Friday!  What a week we had, right? The storm kept me home on Monday because we weren't plowed until 8pm...oy! But then I went back to work Tuesday - Thursday and will be working from home today, as usual.  Unfortunately I missed two events on Monday (the LXR & Co. Brunch & the Kaelen presentation) BUT I got to go to the Kate Spade Saturday exclusive preview party on Wednesday! I'll tell you more about that on Monday.

As you can see, I have a new item on this week! My CHANEL BLAZER!!! EEEP! I alluded to the purchase in this post revealing my Burberry Prorsum dress.  This was definitely a really lucky find at Roundabout Resale.  I paid $400 for it...can you say AMAZING!  After some research I found that it is from Autumn 1998, it's amazing how a classic item really can stand the test of time (duh, that's why it's classic.) Needless to say I am obsessed and can't wait to wear it more!

I have also decided to try and wear all my blazers over the next few weeks. It's such a shame that they don't get as much wear as I would like, but they make it difficult to wear coats and those are definitely a necessity in the city. But I'm going to suck it up and wear them, even if I have to carry them while I walk! ;)

Monday: Blazer: The Extreme Collection (Second Time Around Vintage), Top: Equipment (Marshall's), Jeans: Rag & Bone (Shobop), Booties: No.704b. (DSW),  Watch: Michael Kors (Lord & Taylor)

Tuesday: Blazer: Chanel (Roundabout Resale) Tee: H&M, Jeans: Free People (Gilt Groupe), Flats: Liz Claiborne (DSW), Necklace: Francesca's, Watch: Michael Kors (Lord & Taylor)
Thursday: Sweater: Madewell (Shobop), Vest: French Connection (Marshall's) Jeans: Genetic Denim c/o Piperlime, Boots: Grandma's Brooch: Laila Rowe, Watch: Michael Kors (Lord & Taylor)

And a detail shot of my alligator :)
