Lookbook: Studs

First, if you have a post from me on your reader about blogging it was not supposed to go up yet. Argh. Blogger likes to play tricks on me when I schedule posts and likes to post them when it’s supposed to schedule them. Anyway, that post will be up soon. I’m shaking my fist at blogger right now for ruining things. hmph. My switch to WordPress might be coming sooner than expected…

Hubs got me this gorgeous jacket for Christmas but I haven’t really had a chance to wear it since it was just rain, rain, rain. But lately the weather has gotten quite a bit nicer so I jumped at the chance to wear my lovely new jacket!

What I’m wearing:
Jacket: Mike & Chris
Top: J. Crew
Jeans: Uniqlo
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Bag: Alexander Wang

The jacket has ruffles on the front which you can’t really see in the picture but it’s my favorite part. I mean a leather jacket with ruffles? Totally a Tiffany kind of jacket. Nothing too creative about today’s outfit but the blouse I’m wearing has fun ruffles on it too so I guess it was a ruffles kind of day!


And of course we can’t go without talking about the Alexander Wang bag can we? I love the thing, like love it. But dude. It is so heavy. I mean even without all the junk I carry in my bag the thing already weighs a couple of pounds! My arm gets tired carrying that thing. I have major bicep muscles after carrying that bag around for a few days straight! LOL! It sure is pretty but I’ve been telling all my friends that if they want it, just borrow it from me because it’s a lot of money to spend on a 5 pound weight! But seriously, it’s a gorgeous bag, the design is great and I love the studs on the bottom. I think though, the next Alexander Wang bag I buy will be one like this with no studs to weigh the bag down.

With leather jackets, I think you just need to let it be the focal point, especially with a jacket like mine because of the ruffles. It’s kind of a good excuse to not really put a lot of effort into your outfit if you have a great jacket to wear over it!

Shop the Lookbook:

MIKE & CHRIS – Ruffle leather jacket

Mike & Chris Janus Vintage Leather Jacket This color is on sale!

or this leatherette crop jacket is super cute and only $59!

J. Crew Annalise ruffle cami

This jersey ruffle top is so pretty, check out the back too! And kinda loving this mesh ruffle top.

T Tahari ‘Evie’ Zip Hem

I think jean leggings are perfect for this outfit too. Love these black/grayish jeans too.

Christian Louboutin Patent Platform Pump

I think my next purchase will be these Loubies, I need a pair of black platform pumps. These ones look like great everyday pumps and are on sale for $90.

Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle – Black

It comes in several colors and I like the gray one too. I really do like the quality of the bag and think I will probably get another Alexander Wang bag. I really love the Millie Satchel, it would be great with so many outfits.

    Wow, I do love that A. Wang bag in the buttery gray leather. But it kills me when purses weigh 5 lbs when empty.

    Very nice gift from the hubby! I hate it when mother nature doesn't want me to wear nice coats…which is about every single day here in Boston.

    Love M&C leather jackets and that ruffled one is so lovely! J has very good taste! I hear you on heavy bags…I understand now why older women end p just carrying LeSportsac type bags – they can no longer support the weight of all these heavy heavy purses anymore!

    LOL at shaking your fist in frustration. I do that all the time! And I've got to admit, I read your tips when they popped up in my reader; I thought they were GREAT! Can't wait to see them once you fine tune them. I lurve ruffles and on the jacket is just so unexpected and flirty. Not sure if you've answered this before why do you cuff up the pants instead of having them altered? They look adorbs, but I'm just curious. 🙂

    Rosemary- if you can believe it, those ARE altered. I altered them so I could cuff them up on purpose. If those weren't altered the cuffs would be another 2-3 inches longer! 🙂 I just like the look of the cuffed jean. I don't wear all my jeans cuffed though, some I have altered to the perfect length.

    I love love this look! very cute! And I'm excited to learn (after reading everything you post on your blog for the past few months) that you are also from Seattle! I love the heels you so often post about and wear in your look-book-looks and wish I could pull them off, but I often find myself walking to school at SeattleU in boots and a pea-coat because of the rain. Anyway, I love your style and your blog! Thanks for posting!
