I saw this jacket a few months ago in an online preview and made a note to myself that this was the thing I wanted from this collection (I allow myself one piece from each Go! Or designer collection, which is a LOT less than I used to buy). It is perfection. It’s great with jeans and rocks up a dress.
Or an office outfit.
Unfortunately the light was dying and I didn’t get a great pic of it.
So I borrowed these from Target.com
I ordered it the DAY it went up on the site, before lunch. I guessed on the size. I went to the store on my lunch (I’m lucky, the one in my area actually got the line) and they had a medium and an x-small and I tried those on. I felt like the medium (which was the size I ordered) was too big, but the x-small was too small. So I thought I needed a small. I went back to the office, logged back on…SOLD OUT. By 1 PM. And so I stuck with the medium. And you know what? I was wrong. It fits just fine. Lesson learned? Alexander McQueen is a popular man.
I’ve been wearing this chunky bracelet combo everywhere lately.
The gold beads are an old modified Old Navy necklace and the chains are self made bracelet using just cheap-o Michael’s base metal chains I got for pretty cheap.
It doesn’t get better than Payless booties that held up for a couple years.
The red is coming off the back of the heel a bit, so I can really only wear them with pants, but for throwaway shoes, I’m impressed with how well they’ve lasted. And the kitten heel is perfect for my old lady feet.
I got these earrings at Target, and they were fine, but I replaced the wire across the top and the hook, just to give it a more handmade feel. Because I’m crazy like that.
