An Outfit (Deconstructed)...




I haven't done one of these posts in a while...truth is I've been a bit disenchanted with my closet of late. Nothing in there is very inspiring. I'm bored with my clothes. Does this happen to you?

But in the past few days, the tides have turned a bit. And it's been due to, wait for it... the bangs (or the "fringe" as my friends in Australia and my bestie Karey refer to them).

Yes, the bangs are causing me to look at my closet in a new way. The pieces I always reach for when I'm getting dressed somehow skew differently now that the bangs are in the picture. I'm now digging into the recesses, trying new combinations, wearing things I haven't worn in ages (but have somehow mercilessly been spared from my Goodwill rampages), like that ancient black jacket above...it literally had dust on the sleeves. Sad.

Bangs as a "wardrobe refresher." Who knew.









The Details:
  • Jacket -- Vera Wang for Kohls
  • "Slummy" T-Shirt -- Alternative Apparel via Pretty Mommy
  • Jeans -- Gap
  • Wedges -- Martin + Osa (I miss that store...)
  • Necklace -- Madewell
  • Bracelets -- Madewell + Vintage

p.s. Madewell is fast becoming my new favorite store for jewelery.

p.p.s. Notice how the bangs are slowly becoming side-swept...the full forehead action didn't last long did it?

I second the comment on which type of Gap jeans? I'm in the market, and these are exactly what I've been thinking that I needed. Thanks!

The same thing happened to me! I got bangs last Thursday and my closet has been so much more inviting ever since.

Great outfit!! I have been there with feeling uninspired with the wardrobe. It's the best to dig into the "archives" for a retake on something you already have.

hi ladies -- the gap jeans were a special edition thing from a couple of years ago... so i couldn't find them on the site...but the cropped skinny has a similar fit!

First, again the bangs are a delight! Perfection.
Second, outfit is fantastic.
Third, loved that you mentioned Martin & Osa. Really missing that store & The Man is missing it even more. Such a tragedy...
