Purple Rain...

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 faux fur vest
Martin + Osa silk cashmere v-neck sweater in Sugar Plum
Martin + Osa Ponte Button Tab skirt in black
grey cable knit sweater leggings from American Apparel
black Steve Madden "Intyce" boots
black Handmaid by Michelle Frantz bag

Today is just one of those chilly damp days where you just want to stay home and snuggle in bed. Alas, I had to go to work. I was having some real tights issues today, for some reason I couldn't find a plain black pair, and once I did think I found a pair but in the light they looked navy, even though I don't think I've ever bought a navy pair. Anyway, I got frustrated and just went for my grey sweater leggings. I don't think I've ever worn these as leggings on their own, I have always just put on a pair of socks over them and tucked them into boots. (Today I'm wearing Halloween socks, I'm always behind in festive wear.)

This outfit was definitely warm and cozy. Maybe just a bit *too* warm and cozy. While I was working today, I spied the most adorable knit sweater on a customer. Of course I had to ask where she got it. She told me she got it from Forever 21, very recently, so I had to go check it out after work. Too bad F21 is waaaaay on the other side of the mall, and the mall was incredibly crowded. Also, the crowded F21 store was extremely hot. As I was waiting in the long, long line to check out, after successfully hunting down this sweater, I felt as though I was going to melt. The combination of faux fur vest, cashmere silk sweater, sweater leggings, and boots almost made me faint. At least I know this will keep me warm!


  1. LOVE your fur vest!
