IFBcon Outfit

So you may notice that there’s just a bit of a difference between my IFBcon outfit and that of the one I wore to Lucky FABB earlier in the day. It was so windy, blustery, and rainy, that my wine-colored American Apparel velvet skirt (paired with spotted J.Crew tights {similar}) became just a little bit impractical. So I changed into jeans and called it for what it was. #weatherfail

In other news, I am SO GLAD I invested in this amazing, buttery-soft lambskin jacket from the king of all leather jackets, Vince. My lovely friend Vahni squealed, “It feels like tissue paper!” and I can’t disagree. Wildly luxurious, but then again I prefer to invest in quality, long-lasting classic pieces that I know I will get the most out of, and save on the rest (like thrifting, shopping at Forever 21, Target, H&M, etc).

A note on my Maya Brenner necklace: I never took it off in NYC, and it got me so many comments! I completely forgot I was wearing it all the time, and would become utterly confused when people would exclaim, “Oh, you’re from Texas? Me too!” How did they know? Am I that obvious? Did I say y’all, or something? No. I was wearing it like a banner flag 24/7. Oops. Coco and her husband James liked it, though Coco admitted she didn’t immediately recognize it, just thought it was a pretty polygon–well, I say Coco that calls for you to get your booty down here to Texas so I can showย  you around my great state!

Again, because I’m never satisfied with pictures I take on cameras other than my big hoss (Canon 7D), I have recreated the conference outfit as before, but this time with the jeans. Isn’t it funny how changing one thing as simple as a skirt to jeans can make an outfit look completely different?

More on the actual IFB conference to follow…stay tuned…

    You look so NYC, especially in that jacket! I'm loving the H&M top as well- is it in stores now?

    • 09.19.2011 / 4:18 am

      Yes, in fact I just purchased that top at the NYC H&M when I was there!

      oh wow, that is such a compliment, thank you!

    That leather jacket is seriously one of the most beautiful things I've seen! Wish I could touch it! Great outfit – love how you paired the girly glitter heels and pretty top with a tough jacket! Yay fellow stylish med students!

    • 09.14.2011 / 8:38 pm

      Laura – you have no idea. It's like kleenex, it's so thin and soft and worn in all the right places. Are you a med student as well?? Bravo!

    I am dying over how fabulous those shoes are!!! And I loved your story about the texas necklace. It's really a pretty necklace:)

    • 09.14.2011 / 8:41 pm

      Thank you Emily! I love wearing it. I'm kind of like that with necklaces – I'll wear one for weeks and never take it off. I don't know if it's because I'm lazy or because I'm forgetful…either feature is not very attractive…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love your shoes!! I imagine they must be extremely comfortable and you only take them off to bathe, that's what I imagine anyway.

    I am so happy to read about your NYC adventures. You should know that many of us are living vicariously through your successes and all the time wishing it for ourselves so we can join you! What are you doing at Conde Nast?

    You know, sometimes you just gotta call it on account of weather. Regardless, you still looked beautiful and you rocked the hell out of the Miu Mius. Can't wait to hear more abt the conference!

    • 09.14.2011 / 9:04 pm

      Thanks michelle! Yes the weather was a major bummer. But you have to make lemonade out of lemons sometimes…or as I like to say, add some limes and make margaritas!

  12. 09.14.2011 / 8:58 pm

    You already know i adore your shoes! The last photo of them is seriously incredible – you can SEE them glistening.. over to the right side. Love love.

    Love the Miu Miu heels!! And not only do skirts can change an outfit, so can shoes … =)

    • 09.19.2011 / 4:17 am

      I totally agree, Sara! Shoes can dress an outfit up or down!

  14. 09.15.2011 / 4:08 pm

    I love when people wear little things that really show their personality with their outfits! Like that Texas necklace. It is just quirky and fun. I personally think accessories are a HUGE indication of someone's personality! They are just such a great way to add even more personal style to outfits than your clothes already do!
    Those shoes are AMAZING! I love the shiny factor of them and they are just a classic shape. So pretty!


  17. […] to you–I could take pics anywhere these days! I’m numb to the awkwardness, I guess.So my Miu Miu heels have lived to see another outfit (and another conference). Hey, I’ve gotta get my cost per […]
