At First Sight

Jacket and jeans, Banana Republic. Tank, Tommy Hilfiger. Headband, Forever 21. Flats, Ralph Lauren.


In the spring of 2008, I purchased this raw silk jacket on an absurd sale at Banana Republic. Many jokes were made at my expense on account of its boxy shape ("Where did you park your DeLorean?" hurt the most), but I was in love. Structured silk with a stiff bow - what's not to love? And even though I only wear it a few times a year, it always makes me feel like a Park Avenue lady, circa 1963. Now I'm afraid I'll have to beg off, go downstairs, and see if I can scare off a cab.

The jacket is totally Jackie O. I can't believe people mocked it! Clearly, people with no style :)

I find that I squeal a lot when I read your blog. That's weird, I know. BUT WHO COULD NOT SQUEAL AT THAT COAT?! You are High Society, no doubt.

Love it! With skinny pants and a headband no less. Definitely circa 1963, the year my parents got married and my grandma was so Jackie Bouvier Kennedy. Parlez-vous Français? Très jolie!
