The Cowboy Way

Can you believe both this jacket and this dress were picked up at clothing swaps? I remember the moment I scored this coat acutely - some other woman had been trying it on, carrying it around. I lurked behind her, eyeing her from a safe distance - I couldn't believe she wasn't very excited about the find! Finally, she put the coat down and I swooped in and snatched it up. I've been wearing it constantly this fall - it's crazy warm, and I love that the bright colors give an otherwise bland outfit a kick. This dress was from a more recent, and much more relaxed swap at a friend's apartment. (Need a fun Sunday afternoon? Invite a few pals over for mimosas and a swap. Instant fun!)

    Great coat! Glad the other woman put it back. The high/low hem on the dress is great too. It's a color I might not have picked but it's a great wonderful neutral. I like the no-risk aspect of clothing swap. It's great to try things. If they don't work, give 'em away at the next one (but don't give these away - they're lovely!).
