Chevron (and we’re not talkin’ gas)

by jennine on February 5, 2010

In the last post I describe disappointing meanings of words (lederhosen-leather pants)… but for many years, I thought chevron was just the name of a gas station. Embarrassing right? And was delighted to find out that it just describes the general shape of the V character. Nice, the word ‘chevron’ sounds so cool…and it shouldn’t be tied to gas stations and …oil.  I love stripes, but find it hard to wear them. Sure… except when I want to dress like Beetlejuice! Then pile on the stripes thank you! In search to wean myself off of the grey routine has taken over my wardrobe these last few years, I’ve picked up a dress that’s well, grey..but it has other colors.

This weekend I’m getting ready for fashion week, it’s been wild working on the IFB conference the last few months. This fashion week there are going to be so many opportunities for bloggers, it’s incredible. I really can’t believe how much has changed in the last few years. But hey, it’s all part of the fun! Is there anything you want to see on the The Coveted for fashion week? I’d love to hear your requests!

Jaket : Talbots (I know!) • Cardigan : Kensie • Dress : Kimchi Bue • Necklace : H&M • Boots : some place in Seoul • Leggings : Target

This looks awesome! I dig it! The stripes remind me in a really good way of Fruit Stripes gum wrappers. They were so bright and beautiful!

I love that outfit. The colours and the coat and boots go together really well!

I didn’t even know Chevron was a gas station! I guess it’s American maybe?!

Beautiful outfit. I wish I could wear that today instead of the drab ensemble I have planned out. Oh well. At least I can live vicariously. Thanks for sharing!

I had an absolutely lovely Talbots duffel coat that I ADORED. I recently sold it because it was too big, but I feel you on the “I know!”

Great work as always, Jennine! Is there any way you would consider live streaming the conference or posting video coverage of the sessions afterward for those of us overseas? I wish I could be there in person, but would definitely donate to see it online!

I think that coat is great.
It would be great to see your own trend prognosis for next winter, you have excellent but specific taste and it would be great to see how a real woman and not the editor filters out future trends.
Have fun on fashion week!
