This is the leather jacket I mentioned. It has some quilted detailing on the shoulders and back, and an appealing abundance of zippers. And finally it is cold enough to wear it. Here I am again with the drab olive color I like so well.

Cargo leather jacket from AllSaints, Old Navy vest (which is quite warm), Zara scarf, Express jeans (thrifted), Eric Michael boots, Mulberry Roxanne bag (thrifted), Spektre sunglasses.

Loving the colors in this scarf. Zara is so on point this season.

weekend distraction: it’s all in the details

This is, without a doubt, the coolest tag I have come across, and possibly the best safety pin ever.

I really must find a worthy use for this safety pin.

This utilitarian, strategically weathered ensemble is the price/product ID tag for the leather jacket* I got at AllSaints. There, for unabashedly staggering prices, you can find a great industrial chic aesthetic rendered in some of the softest and most luxurious fabrics around. The hefty price surely paid, in part, for this beautiful tag, but I find myself applauding AllSaints for it. This is branding and cohesive vision at its best.

*which will show you soon. It was so, so worth it.

Have you seen their storefront on Newbury Street? A massive matrix of vintage Singer sewing machines.

Brilliant.
