The Same But Different

photos from my Pinterest

We are having unseasonably cold weather (after last week's unseasonably warm weather) and last night was the first time I've put on a pair of tights since last winter.  We're now officially back to the land of layering. I wasn't quite prepared for the thought of wearing tights again so I looked through my Fall/Winter Pinterest board, in order to remind myself of what an outfit that involves layers looks like!  As I was skimming over the photos, I happened to notice these pairs of images featuring the same gals twice. 

I really like how they show the advantages of finding a silhouette that works for you and reusing the pieces in your closet.  The photos above feature the exact same outfit with only the accessories changing.  The photos below show some of the pieces being reused while creating a new outfit with the same silhouette.  I'm definitely going to keep this in mind while thinning out my closet for the season.

Etsy Update: Pumpkin Spice

autumn 1 /// 2 /// 3 /// 4 /// 5 /// 6

It's that time of year, isn't it?  When all things pumpkin creep into our lives.  Pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, carved pumpkins sitting on our front porches.  So I've taken a moment to add a little pumpkin spice to the Etsy shop.

Ace & Jig Spring 2014

I'm always excited to see what Ace & Jig has been up to for the following season.  I haven't picked out a piece from the fall collection yet so I may be getting a little ahead of myself by putting several pieces from the Spring 2014 collection on my wishlist.  But they are just SO good.  I would love to have everything on the top row here!

I received a very sweet email from Gokce in Instanbul, Turkey informing me about her new collection for fall.  You may remember that I posted about her previous work from Uttu.  Now she has another pretty lookbook featuring her latest designs from her collection You Look Familiar.   The eyelet dresses are my favorite pieces.

Etsy Update: Autumn Dresses

dresses A

A few weeks ago I discovered a lovely collection of vintage dresses at a flea market.  They were all in need of a little love, so they've been soaked, mended, steamed and are ready for new homes.  All of these have been added to the Etsy shop.  Now I better get to work on the next batch!

D'Orsay Flats

flats from Need Supply Co & Madewell

I've been on the hunt for a pair of very sensible shoes to wear on an every day basis.  My default footwear for winter is usually a pair of riding boots (over very thick socks!).  I've always marveled at the girls wearing their flats on bare feet in the freezing cold.  Why?!  I just can't do it.  I've also never liked shoes with pointed toes.  So, it's vexing to me that I've found myself so smitten with the idea of a pair of D'orsay flats.  Cold, impractical shoes with pointed toes!  But I want them nonetheless.
