What I Wore: A Petite Leather Moto Jacket

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

They're too snug and won't close over my chest, they don't come larger than a size 10, they're stiff and boxy, they're too snug in the arms, they cost a kazillion dollars, they're covered with all sorts of embellishment and doohickies. Every year I search stores and shop online and end up empty handed (except…

What I Wore: Chico’s Leopard Print Faux Fur Coat

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

When I visited Chico's Headquarters earlier this year, I saw this leopard print faux fur coat and haaaad to have it once it was for sale.  Chico's remembered how excited I was about this coat and sent to me as a gift a couple weeks ago.  While it's lovely for early fall days as a topper for work or play, it also makes for a fab piece to throw on…

What I Wore: Cropped Wide-Leg Jeans

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

Just call me a hypocrite, or maybe a convert.  Just a few short months ago I told a reader to get rid of a pair of high-waisted cropped wide-leg jeans and now here I am wearing a pair. These aren't the kind jeans that will make my legs look a mile long or my figure a smaller dress size, but the older I get the less I care about following…
