Looks of the Day: Variation on a theme

Fall Fashion: Vintage velvet & fur

Can't decide which version of this outfit I like better. What do you think? Skirt or jeans?

Fall Fashion Vintage velvet & fur

Today was gorgeous here in Seattle, which of course made me feel guilty, considering what the East Coast is going through. As we speak, my friends are hunkering down and preparing for the worst storm to hit New England and the surrounding states probably ever (or so they say). I am hoping that it doesn't turn out as bad as they predict. There's always a chance that the storm changes course or weakens. Fingers crossed!

Fall Style: Madewell highriser jeans & an oversized cardigan

I LOVE that skirt, but the wedges with the jeans really make that outfit for me. A toss up for me over here. I wish I could say I look half as fashionable while weathering the storm (ha); I've been in gym clothes alll day.

Also, those jeans fit you amazingly well; do you recommend them for a lady with a smaller waist and wider hips? I've been in the market for a pair of high waisted pants.

Laurel, we have the same body type, so of course they would work, or at least fit! They would probably look even better on you. I had to do some strategic bag placement, because I was looking real hip-y today.

You look good in both, but the skirt is so rich and velvety!

The whole ensemble is a win! It reminds me of old Hollywood glamour.

As you could expect from me, I love the skirt option the best.
Wonderful how it blends with the colours of nature in autumn.
I wish you would post more, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Both outfits have its flare. The one with the jeans is a bit more contemporary, but as I am a sucker for skirts, and this is an amazing vintage outfit, I'd go for the skirt.
Love your style, as always :)

Oh god, I don't know, I love them both! The skirt makes the whole outfit look so glamorous, but I think the jeans are more my style.

I'm a jean girl at heart, so that might be swaying my opinion, but the skirt with the sweater is too much on your cute little frame. It's overpowering a bit, maybe a bit frumpy. I love the skirt with the blouse though. It's the sweater that needs a sleeker base like the jeans!

Hi from another Seattle blogger! I just found your blog through Lindsay Living, and am your newest follower on GFC. I really like both of your outfits, but I think the skirt wins for me. =)

I would love it if you have a chance to check out my blog and follow me back if you like it!
