It's getting dark earlier and earlier

I'm missing Summer already, and it's only November. Sure, I prefer Fall fashion to anything I can wear in 90-degree weather, but really- getting dark at 5 pm? I'll pass.

I love this picture of me and my husband...both at backyard parties of years past. Ignore the worm chin look on the right.

Net-A-Porter, Bane of my (Funds) Existence

When I think of many of my girl friends in Omaha, I think of Chloé. The styling similarities are pretty dead-on; I see it in the high waisted pants, the irregular colors and forms that reflect masculinity and even the placing of the belt in this look really define the overall look of many of these lovely ladies (I'm really thinking Laura with the belt).

That being said, torture continues to blow in seasonally, currently in the form of a $2055 USD Chloé blouse that sold out before I even had my eye on it.
The combination of a Chloé bow-detailed asymmetric silk blouse with the butterfly jacquard silk pants cannot be topped. The details! The details!

And I NEED the pants too, if solely for the reason that I work at Goodwill, and I see gorgeous vintage blouses everyday that would look perfect with them.
Check out the beautiful pattern and color of these pants up-close...and all this time I thought Miriah Carey killed off all chances for these little suckers to be seen as non-trashtastic in the 90's.

Vivienne Westwood Rubbers

Gah I love these!

I bought THE LAST PAIR (how lucky is that?) of the Vivienne Westwood Gold Lady Dragon Globe sligbacks off My-Wardrobe.com. I never believe when a website says "last pair" (because they all say it) but I checked today and they were sold out. My perfect holiday shoes because they are grey so I can wear them with everything. The only thing that would make them more perfect would be if the ball on the front was actually a tiny disco ball that bounced light everywhere when I was dancing, (ala Thakoon's Mirror Mosaic Strappy Sandals and Ankle boots).

Had to get these puppies too, I don't own any rainboots and I feel these are very understated. Loving the tiny little bow on the front. The website said they run small, so I hope I am not disappointed with giant clodhopper boots. I won't send them back because they're coming from Britain and shipping/fees are horrible already!

The purchase of both of these pairs more than made up for the disappointment I had earlier this week when Bloomingdales messed up my order. Sent me the wrong pair of Kate Spades, and then told me the ones I wanted were sold out and it was too late.

SafeClothes/ Rebecca Turbow

For years I've been in love with all things Rebecca Turbow. This season is no different.

Check out this beaut of a cape (left), love it! Great detailing on the back, lovely color and collar, fair price at $190. Just might have to be an early birthday present to...myself.
