Baby, it’s cold outside!

…Luckily I’m keeping warm in my favorite vegan leather moto jacket from Free People (available here), boyfriend cargo pants by Current/Elliot, and the “Remix” boot from which features red laces, a 4″ heel, and a padded faux leather ankle. These boots are super comfortable, great for fall/winter, versatile (I’ve also worn them with a little black dress), and affordable at only $88, available here. Woop woop!


Asheville Exploring

What is the upside of having a 76-year-old father who fancies himself a vagabond, moving frequently from state to state?   Visiting him.  In this case: getting to explore the chilly, bohemian, and gorgeously scenic city of Asheville, NC.   The cold didn’t keep me down, thanks to my head-to-toe faux leather get-up (a.k.a. “Asheville Tuxedo” ??)

Jacket: Free People vegan leather hooded moto jacket, $168 (other colors available, and the hood is removable for a dressier look),  available here.

Pants:  Larsen Grey Hannah and Gracie with faux leather side panel.

Shoes: Nike Free Run 3 in magenta.

I am in love with the jacket and cannot believe how authentic it looks and feels. And- if you haven’t been to Asheville, you really should go check it out. Hippie Heaven!


Get your grunge on!

… Mmmm.  This “Jackson Hole” jacket by For Love and Lemons makes me want to bundle up and watch My So-Called Life reruns.  I love how the mustard plaid is paired with a fluffy faux shearling collar and faux suede yolk.  Note:  The dress shown underneath is also made of faux suede.  I think it’s love… And I’m referring to both Jared Leto and the jacket.

Dress and Jacket both available here.



Good Karma

My favorite thing about Deux Lux: In honor of their mascot (a sweet chocolate lab, Dylan), they always use vegan leather and other animal-friendly materials.  I have to be honest; I think that this is so great, because oftentimes we can overlook the connection between our beloved household pets and the animals which are used every day for our food, clothing, and more.

Shown here is the aptly-named “Karma” backpack, found at for $130.


Looking a little pouchy…
