A Pop of Red for Your Winter Blues

Hey guys!  Is it just me or is day light savings throwing off your day….and it’s getting chilly fast, to boot?

With temps falling fast you may be in the mood to update that winter coat you’ve had for years.  It hasn’t worn out yet, but you’re over it? Just add a fun belt like this red one for a pop of color–and instantly you have a new winter look.  This entire outfit is a compilation of thrift stores finds.  It just goes to show you that you can still be on trend, and do it for only a fraction of the cost….you just have to know where to look.

Love. Leather. Lipstick.

Hey guys!  Hope this finds you well.  For those of you like myself in the Tri-State area, Sandy may be over….but it’s still affecting so many. If you or your loved ones were impacted…I hope this finds you safe and with a smile.

I ventured out over the weekend…and on the way out the door I grabbed a jacket that I had recently given a little DIY love….well, me and my tailor (my tailor and I if you’re a stickler for grammer :).  I took an old H&M cargo jacket I’ve had for several years, bought a leather jacket for $20 off ebay, and for $30 bucks I had the sleeves repurposed.  Absolutely in love with it. You too can accomplish this look with your favorite denim jacket or trench coat, to give it a second life — the possibilities are unique and endless.

So as we begin a new week — hopefully with a fresh start…let me know what your favorite go-to jacket for Fall is.
