What I am wearing to SFFW

It dawned on me that Fashion Week is right around the corner… And I really don’t know what to wear. I look in my closet, and most of it, is a collection of bits and pieces from thrift shoppes, consignment places, H&M, and Loehmans. I really don’t spend that much money on one piece, because I love the act of gathering (aka, shopping). So for fashion week, I want to represent and support local designers, by wearing an indie designed piece. I really love Naik Fur, the process and form is something that really speaks to me. So I checked out her shoppe on Smashing Darling, and found this beautiful jersey knit top. It’s like a piece of sculpture. Here’s the description:
white manipulated jersey knit top. experiment with elastic. designed with ties to be styled into a wrap. which ever way you please.
I think the reason why I bought it, was because I could imagine several different outfits with it, and ways to layer it. with a tight long sleeve t-shirt underneath, with a pencil skirt, with shorts… a leather mini… whatever. Clothing that inspires, is probably the best clothing one can acquire.

And you know I’ve been thinking about boots for some time now… After looking at Net-A-Porter, seeing the Chloe Boots made me wish I was loaded. Since I’m not, I found these Report Valerie boots in brown for on Zappos.com $107. They got excellent reviews, so I figure, hey, I’m looking for autumn boots anyway….
