Concrete Catwalk // Staying Warm for the Weekend

February 1, 2012

Weekend treasure hunting on our tiny “beach” called for bundled layers and my most trusty winter boots.  Can’t wait to show you what I found, and the simple DIY project that followed!

(Hint: it involves spicing up our space + lots and lots of jewelry.) 

Stay tuned, and I’ll see you then! 

Top to Bottom:
Knit cap – Gap (similar)
Sunnies – Hand me down from a client (similar)
Sweater – Vintage, thrifted (similar)
Jacket – J. Crew (Love this similar one with fur trim!)
Faux fur vest – c/o Rachel Roy (on sale!)
Fur trim gloves – Macy’s (similar)
Jeggings – Nordstrom
Mount Holly Boots (on sale!) – c/o Timberland at Lucky FABB

      Thanks, Megan! These photos were actually from the weekend when it was much colder… most of my outfits are a few days behind. :) Thank goodness today’s weather is so gorgeous, right?

    I think the great novelist Philip Roth is from Hoboken. And, the great poet c.c. cummings is from the Patterson river area. Read up on the history. Also, I get all my dog foul weather gear from a local co, who has gone on line, and also has MS care-a-lot. They keep everything a dog needs to stay on or near the water, repair those paws from oyster shell cuts, anything a Navy Seal and his family require. No prissy stuff, except for the local mermaids that go in. Check them out and get a catalog mailed. You get the wind chill up there on a dogs ears, and salt on the paws. Carry baby wipes with some tea tree oil on them for FIdo.

    I just saw that you are speaking at the Texas Style Council Conference. I live in Austin and want to go so badly, but they are sold out. Do you know if they will be opening an additional registration? It’s going to be amazing!!

      Hi, Shanna! :) My recommendation would be to keep checking the online forum on the TxSC website, and the FB page as well… it’s possible that there will be someone who has registered that won’t end up being able to attend, and might be trying to find someone to take their ticket. Best of luck, and I hope you end up being able to make it!
