This is What 56 Looks Like

Over the weekend I had my birthday and got THISMUCHCLOSER to turning 60.


For my birthday I wanted to be super casual…yet elevated.

I think I accomplished that with this look.

In case you haven’t heard, double breasted jackets are back for A/W 2017.


When I heard the news, I headed to the thrift where I scored this vintage DKNY jacket for $3.99.

There is a similar one selling on Poshmark for $50.00…

Right about now you are probably saying to yourself “Wait a minute, yours has a fur collar.”


I decided to zhuzh up my blazer by adding this “fur” collar I picked up for $14.50 (but for me it was free) at Buffalo Exchange.


It helped to balance out the massive shoulder pads in the blazer.

I used Hollywood Fashion Tape AKA double stick tape to secure it. It worked pretty well considering how windy it was .

All in all, I felt comfortable and stylish (and another year older) the whole day.
