Caitlin and fringe in motion

Over the last three years Friendsgiving has become one of my favorite holiday traditions. We get all of our friends together, everyone brings a dish to share (D and I made mashed sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie croissants respectively) and after giving thanks and enjoying an amazing meal, it turns into one of the biggest, rowdiest parties of the year. It’s tradition.

A new tradition this year was fringe. I’ve had this fringe blazer in my closet for over a year and Friendsgiving seemed like the perfect event to debut it. After wearing it for five minutes I was in love. Not only does it have amazing movement (hence why I had so much trouble standing still in the photos above) but it broke up my all black outfit perfectly and added just the right amount of boho.

What are your favorite thanksgiving/holiday traditions?

Bollywood Barn Coat

Dollar Store Sunnies, Gifted Scarf, Coat: D’s Mom, Sweater (not pictured): Bass, Hurley Jeans: Plato’s Closet, Bronx Boots & Headband: Stella Mae, Ring: FlorenceIt’s no secret I collect coats, so when D’s mom was cleaning out her closet  and came across this Indian made coat from her late twenties she saved it for me. She altered it a bit creating the perfect cross between a barn coat and a swing coat complete with a cute bell shape.

It was the perfect weight for holding off the rather crisp fall wind while running weekend errands downtown… and by errands I mean a stop for maple lattes at Uncommon Grounds, browsing used cds at Pure Pop (we left with Amy Winehouse & Marvin Gaye), and indulging at Logan’s of Vermont.

what did you wear this weekend? 

if Boy George had a red headed half sister…

…I suspect she’d look a bit like me in this hat 

Dollar Store Sunnies, Hat & Blazer: Shalom Shuk, Denim Shirt: Walmart, Knit: TJ Maxx, Jeans: GAP, Bronx Boots: Stella Mae, Ring: MontrealThe graphic floral print J.Crew jacket and vintage felt hat, with the original owner’s name sewn into the lining, are both from a recent trip to Shalom Shuk and I snagged these new (oxblood, maroon, insert your preferred name for this shade of dark red) leather Bronx Boots on sale at Stella Mae.

What exciting wardrobe additions have you been making? *bonus points if they make you look oddly like an 80s celebrity… and you send me a picture*
