22 In Misc


I absolutely loved the fall 2010 collection from Chloe.  It reminded me so much of growing up in the late 70' s and early 80's.  I have been scouring eBay and my favorite vintage stores for vintage pieces that would re-create this look.


Here is my own version.


Vintage Courreges sweater purchased from Archive Vintage.  You must have a look at Archive's site right now, Kerry has some amazing things in!!  I also purchased this great rust suede skirt on eBay for almost nothing.  Lastly, I'm wearing Chloe boots that are so old, they're almost vintage.  

On a separate note–I'm so happy that you all are enjoying the food posts that Carol and I have been making.  We are having a great time in the kitchen, and I have a lot of new things to post that we cooked over the weekend.  It's so hot here in Texas, there isn't much else to do.

    Love the skirt! It also reminds a little of Vuitton. Ah, can’t wait for winter.

    Love your version! I also really dig this kind of 70s style. The green sweater paired with the leather skirt looks so good together!

    Love this, Judy! I’m also in love with Chloe’s fall collection. I’m your age, and was too young to enjoy the fashion at the time. I’m ready now, though! Congrats on that skirt – great find.

    I am loving all the browns and camels I see everywhere and I love your version of Chloe. Looks like that will be a Texas winter staple. I am hopping my hubby has some business in Dallas this fall and I can tag along for fun.

    Your version makes it look like it is part of the collection.
    I’m in a major camel, neutral, and neutral pink love right now πŸ™‚
    You’re lucky that you can pull off long skirts, I’m so short that I’d be a MAJOR fashion crime

    Love the food posts. Made the spicy chili for dinner tonight….soooo good. But mine did not look the same. I drained the cans of beans before adding to pot. Was I not suppose to? Thanks, will try others too!

    I made the orange chocolate cookies twice now, meraviglioso! My girls loved them! For me? they were too sweet for my taste; I tried them again with half the sugar and they came out delicious!
    Thank you for sharing.
