mad for plaid

{Express coat c/o (similar shape, and color style here), Goorin Bros fedora (fab option!), True Religion jeans, Jigsaw booties, Bally crossbody bag, TOKYObay Agent watch c/o}

It's finally starting to feel like fall around here. I've been reaching more and more for my nubby knits and cozy cashmere wraps as temps are cooling, and, finally, the rain is coming down- not so cute for the straightened hair, but great for the crops. One of my must-haves for every fall season is a great coat, and this rad statement plaid one is exceptional. With a mod vibe and a modern sleeve silhouette this jacket feels very last season CĂ©line and every bit right now. I can't get enough of it.

I decided to update it with an au courant hair tuck topped by my fave grey fedora and my new timepiece over my sleeve. One part conveience (no need to pull up that sleeve in these frigid temps), one part style genius.

#besobold //madewell 2 Bandits event

(Forever 21 girls coat (love this one!), thrifted Ralph Lauren shirt, True Religion denim c/o, vintage Gucci belt, TOKYObay watch c/o, J. Crew Everly pumps}

Being bold can mean many things, so when True Religion sent over these jeans and asked me to "Be So Bold" I knew I was going to go big- not so jumping off a cliff big, but more purple lipstick, fur coat rocking, man watch wearing big. Going big, or going home right?

Let's start with this coat, this deceivingly good faux fur coat. It's Forever 21 and I found it in the girl's section, on sale. I know, it's a lot to take in. I'll give you a moment.

Next, this bold lip. It's my perfectly purple pencil eyeliner, muddled in with some mauve lipstick. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect seasonal lip shade, so when I received a few compliments on it in person I knew I was onto something. This bold lip will definitely stay in the rotation this fall.

And then of course there is that ginormous yet glorious rose gold specimen on my wrist- a man's watch. I'm not one to shy away from the boy's section, I find my best pieces there. The masculine- the dial size- yet feminine -the rose gold hue- kept me intrigued and let's just say you'll see this watch often. 

Also, my friends over at The 2 Bandits are hosting a lovely event at the Madewell store in SF tonight from 6-8p. If you are around you should definitely go. There will be cocktails, discounts on merch, and the first 20 people to get there will get a free The 2 Bandits ring....sounds like reason enough to make the most of this Thursday night! Hope to see you there.
