On my inspiration board

I posted on, but did not buy, the mini Pandora and this pic makes me want one all over again.

This is the perfect, more dressed up, run-around look. I am definitely having a tailored pants moment.

As hard as I’ve looked this season (and last winter), I have not found the jacket. I love navy, but I’m a bit over leather sleeves above. Emmanuelle Alt’s shearling below is more of what I am looking for.

  • Oh EA’s jacket is so luxurious!!! I am with you on the leather sleeves, I think their moment has passed. The second look is so chic, I am making that my work uniform, JCrew eaton trouser and tippi sweater, cute smoking slippers and you got that look!!

  • Lovely images! I feel the same about the leather sleeves. They are now at every price point. Feels like time to move on/back to tailored pants to me too.

  • Oh I can hardly stand how much I like, nay, adore Emmanuelle Alt’s jacket. The shearling, the drape is just heavenly. Karl Donoghue on Net a Porter has some similar I covet.

  • Preston, you are reading my mind again. I passed on medium pandora because it just didn’t look right with my silhouette. Saw a woman with pandora mini today and went straight to Barney’s to buy it. Perfect for everyday and for travel. Love, love Emmanuelle Alt’s shearling. I have a sort of similar one from Vince, but it’s missing the fabulous fur collar. I just might wear it with my fur scarf. Thank you for inspiring me once again.

  • Just saw a lavender mini Pandora at TJ Maxx. Want me to pick it up for you? Seriously.

  • Tori, Thanks, but I wouldn’t wear lavender. Black, grey, or even dark green would be perfect.

  • Absolutely! EA’s jacket is fabulous. Loving the tailored pants too.

    right on!

  • I love that EA doesn’t carry a bag… I just want to know how she does it!

    CatherineNovember 9th, 2013  11:43 AM

  • Love the second look, tailored black pants have hit my radar!

    MelanieNovember 9th, 2013  11:45 AM

  • Is EA’s jacket from Rick Owens? The ribbing on the sleeves looks like a signature RO touch, but can’t be sure. Preston, who’s jacket is this???

  • Does anyone know what sweater that is in the first photo?

    kimNovember 9th, 2013  1:06 PM

  • Liz, the image is actually a few years old. Sorry, I cannot identify the jacket.
