Weekend Outfit October 25

I have very specific ideas about what I want to wear this fall. To a certain extent, that’s true of me all the time – I’m one of those fashion people who has developed a bit of a personal uniform for herself after a couple of years in the business, and in the past six months in particular, I’ve become very good at focusing my personal purchases only on things that really make me feel like me. That also means I sorta look the same all the time, which is never more apparent than when you compare this weekend’s fantasy outfit to the outfit I came up with the last time I gave myself this personal challenge.

Ultimately, it’s a lesson in the fact that there are a lot of different ways to get almost any look you’re going for. Given nearly infinite choices, how do you self-determine? How do you mete out your fashion dollars? One thing that got me to open my wallet this week was the Gap Ombre Wool Motorcycle Jacket you see below – it’s just as on-trend and expensive-looking as you can imagine for $128, and Gap has a 25% off code (GAPSAVE) going on through the 26th. In anticipation of the jacket’s arrival at my apartment, I’ve built my ideal outfit around it, right down to the scarlet lipstick.

    I completely agree. The best way to look your best is to stay true to your own style. This is a great mix of luxury and budget-friendly pieces.

      I have a very serious thing with silver shoes that I can’t quite explain. I just ordered the mirrored silver Air Maxes from Net-a-Porter. My sale buys this summer were both silver (Acne booties and Prada sandals). The Birkenstocks I wore all summer have silver straps. I’d love to have these Phillip Lim loafers. I don’t know if it’s because the color goes so well with black or because I just like shiny things, but…silver shoes, man. They’re great.
