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.
