    Love what you did with the dress. Where do you buy your leather? I am scared to buy it online buy in stores its very expensive.

      Try thrifting – especially if you're experimenting. Look for a large men's coat/jacket without a bunch of busy details.

    You always look so amazing. I've been "lurking" on your blog for some time because I don't sew. I love those shoes & just thought that since I've shopped in your closet I should at least comment 🙂 Love the 2 jackets I bought from you too by the way, your sense of style is on point.
