A search for the perfect “fall woods” led to this discovery down by a bright blue lake with just the right amount of leaves on the ground and bare trees to make me jump out of the car for a quick photo-op. Needless to say, heels were not the best idea I’ve ever had, but you’ve seen stranger things in editorials right?
I pulled these straight legged GAP jeans circa 1990 out of a stack in my closet and decided they would look just right glammed up with pointed black pumps, plenty of textures in a soft short cape top, down black vest and silk top, and blindingly gold bag, a thrifted find while in Hawaii a few years ago. The women kept trying to convince me it was a famous designer, little did she know famous names were no match for the bag’s ostentatious factor.
