Fashion Friend ~ Lindsay ~ part I

Here’s the post I hinted to on Monday.  My beautiful friend, Lindsay, has a style crush on Jennifer Anniston.  Who doesn’t, right?  Her style is rather timeless and classic and she usually has great tailoring. Lindsay and I  had a fun time rummaging through her closet coming up with outfits inspired by Ms. Anniston.  Hope you enjoy!

Hat: NYC Street Vendor / Blazer: Khols / Top: Old Navy / Necklace: Limited / Belt: Gap / Jeans: Gap / Shoes: Target / Bag: Coach / Sunnies: Target / Watch: Fossil


Jacket: Old Navy / Dress: Ann Taylor Loft (on sale now) / Shoes: Steve Madden via TJ Maxx / Bag: Mango / Sunnies: DKNY / Jewelry: J.Crew watch, J.Crew band, Banana Republic bangles, Stella & Dot bracelet, Huichol Indian bracelet, J.Crew necklaces

So I’m not a complete copy-cat, but I got this great idea from a fellow blogger friend.  Check out her take on the army jacket with dress at her blog Untitled (1986).  Cute right?  Since I didn’t copy it exactly, I figured I would coin myself as just a copy-kitten.  I love the juxtaposition of rough meets sweet with the army jacket and crochet dress.  I’m also a sucker for necklaces.  Obviously, Coco Chanel’s famous phrase of taking one thing off before you leave the house is not something I follow.  No copy-kitten on that one!

TIP:  It’s always a good idea to mix and match!  Have fun, it’s just fashion!

Jackie O

Cardigan: J.Crew / Top: Ann Taylor / Pants: Ann Taylor Loft / Shoes: Zara / Bag: Dooney & Bourke / Sunnies: Anthropologie / Jewelry: Nixon watch, J.Crew necklace, Banana Republic bangles, Stella & Dot bracelet, Huichol Indian bracelet 

I thought it looked like I was channeling Jackie O, or really any other first lady for that matter, in this get up.  If only my twelve-year-old self could have seen a glimpse of me now.  I use to have half my head shaved, dyed red, and only wore clothes that were 10 sizes too big for me.  Now I look like I could aid in campaigning for tax cuts and increased employment rates.  Don’t get excited though folks, the only thing I could run for is a spot on the local fashion council (do they have those?) and I think my platform would probably be to ban fanny packs.  I don’t care if yours has Gucci logos all over it, they are never cute.  Although my exterior may have changed over the years, I still like to blast some metal/rock music in the car.  Do you think they secretly jam out to Pantera at the White House?

TIP: Never be afraid to let your freak flag fly  (unless it consists of wearing a fanny pack)!
