Westwood

Westwood

Vivienne speaks volumes with this slate blue studded canvas jacket from her Anglomania collection. It's the perfect topper for a pair of skinny jeans and ankle boots, don't you think? p.s. Alexander Wang sweater underneath.

Adorable Adolfo

Although we are not known for carrying much vintage, occasionaly we
make an exception for a special piece, like this darlingblack knit
Adolfo jacket. It's got just a little bit of a peaked shoulder and a
super narrow fit. Delightful!

Perfecting the High Low Mix

IMG_6090

I can't decide which outfit I like better, but the version on the right costs A LOT less!

Left: Theory leather jacket ($195) Prada brocade top ($110) The Row leggings ($245) Louboutin gray suede mary jane ($185) Right: Leather Craft jacket ($59) J. Crew metallic top ($39) Saint Grace leggings ($29) Jonathan Kelsey pumps ($68)

The Closet is all about the high low mix. Do you really need that fancy black blazer for hundreds of dollars? I don't think so. You can find an equally fabulous version at The Closet (I've found above 5 over the years) that will work wonderfully. Pair it with some boyfriend jeans (Gap denim will do just fine) and a simple tee or sequin top, add a handbag, preferably Bottega or Chanel (some things are WORTH investing in) and heels of any kind (I'm partial to an eighties inspired pump.) Now you have your own look a la Balmain and money in the bank.

 If you're good you can get away with only spending a little, but looking perfectly put together. There is nothing better than receiving a compliment for an inexpensive item that looks straight off the runway. Here are some more examples:

Fashion is full on Eighties, at the moment, so anything lacy and pink will do the trick this holiday season... Dress ($29) Louis Vuitton skirt ($265)

Put on a printed top! Marni ($165) vs H&M ($12)

There are lots of fun and interesting tweeds, like this pink Lemon jacket ($78) in bright colors and metallics, that scream Chanel ($795) without the $$$ signs.

Cashmere Delight

We are BURSTING at the seams with cashmere sweaters in a rainbow of 
luscious colors (and prices!) From trendy Vince cardigans, Ralph 
Lauren cable knits, and cozy J. Crew classics (fun fact: the brand 
uses the same factories as leading Italian label Loro Piana) to multi 
ply Malo, TSE, and Agnona. Why would you ever wear wool again?!

It's true...

bank. Here's a look at what's in stock right now:

You'll want to wear it every day

If I could live in one sweater all season it would have to be this one, from Rick Owens...the arms are knit long and narrow, the bottom is uneven, a bit longer in back. Owens always seems to know the look we want, and the design feels jacket-like, but with the coziness of your favorite cardigan. I'd say it's a must have.
