Daily Outfit: 25th October 2009

A couple of weeks ago, San Francisco-based (& potential New Yorker!) photographer Lydia Hudgens & I went out on some adventures around New York City.

These were shot in Tompkins Square Park & around the East Village (where I live). It was a beautiful autumn day — cold but clear, perfect for walking around & taking in the beauty of the city.

I wore…

A raspberry beret (the kind you find in a second-hand store). Actually, it’s a snood, & I bought it on Etsy last year!
Tarina Tarantino pavĂ© heart necklace (on a modified chain — it was a sample piece).
Floral print strapless dress from Forever 21.
Vintage faux fur coat (love love love).
Pyramid stud belt from Forever 21. I wear this with pretty much every dress I own.
Ankle boots from TopShop. I am 5’11” in these pictures!

This is my uniform for the fall — cute jackets & coats over sun dresses. I have been doing it mercilessly. You might as well get as much wear out of your dresses as you can, don’t you think?! It looks really fancy but is so simple, which is the best bit! Last night I went to a secret party wearing a black velvet blazer over a floral sun dress with black stockings & boots. Do you have a uniform that gets you through the seasonal transition?

This coat is sublimely warm, I cannot tell you how much I love it! It is definitely one of the best clothing purchases I’ve made in a while — & it wasn’t even expensive. (About $70, I think. eBay is the best best best place to buy vintage coats!)

Sometimes a girl has to hoik her dress up! Ha!

Thank you, Lydia, for being so amazing! Love, love, love!
