|thrifted sweater, J Crew Sterling skirt, vintage brass necklace, Naturalizer t-straps|
The 'maple crimson' Sterling skirt has also edged its way into my permanent rotation by dint of being structured and a great colour. But it still makes me sad- the cut and size are a little off for me and the fabric is quite a bit inferior to any previous season of Double Serge skirts from J Crew. I think it may even be starting to pill!
I also discovered that lurex-ish sweaters are not very warm in and of themselves. We went out to see Django Unchained tonight, and I felt a little bit chilly in my thin wool coat. I popped into Joe Fresh but didn't find just the right kind of low-priced underlayer to add (say around $10), so I decided to mildly suffer it out. I stupidly get stuck in these kinds of situations a few times every winter- shopping for something warmer because I haven't dressed appropriately for the day when leaving my overheated apt. Turns out its -20 tonight! Oops! Must. consult. weather. forecast!
