I titled this post Old School because this outfit shoot was done in an “old school” manner for Wardrobe Oxygen – Karl took my picture before I hopped in my car and headed to the office! Emerson is battling a cold and stayed home from school; she was bundled up on the couch watching Teen Titans Go! and we were able to get a couple shots in before I had to do my own battle of DC rush hour. Work this time of year is slow, the office is quiet, and we have no client visits so the dress code relaxes. I got this scarf from MYHABIT; I love trolling through there finding great bargains. I would never be able to afford a Saint Laurent scarf if it wasn't on clearance (cheaper than the link above, but sadly out of stock on MYHABIT) and I had referral credits (every member gets a referral link – if you share it, your friend gets $20 to spend at MYHABIT and you get $20 store credit too!). As I mentioned in this post, I'm all about knit dresses, tights, and boots when it's cold. Today wasn't super chilly, but when it is I'd replace the cotton scarf for one of wool or cashmere, the tights with a fleece-lined pair, and add a slip under the dress.
I featured this bag before Thanksgiving but it deserves another show. This is my second bag from ADORA and I can't stress how luxe and well-crafted it is. The leather is fabulous – smells great, is really supple but also sturdy. Those who handcraft these bags in Italy have also made bags for design houses like Gucci and Prada. It is rare to get such quality for such an amazing price. This specific color is only available through Wardrobe Oxygen and is only available through this week. I find this to be the perfect statement color for the season, but would also look so rich this spring paired with one of Pantone's color of the year, Rose Quartz. I love this color with denim, olive, navy, purple, and of course black and gray!
This bag is usually $280; I asked ADORA if they would offer Wardrobe Oxygen readers a holiday gift and they agreed to give a 15% discount on this limited edition color. This is never heard of, ADORA bags NEVER go on sale! That brings the bag down to $238 and shipping is FREE! You can NOT miss this opportunity! This offer is only available through Friday, December 11, 2015. If you wish to get this bag, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll have ADORA get in touch with you. Thank you so much ADORA for this wonderful holiday gift just for Wardrobe Oxygen readers!
