Perfect Presents

On my way out the door today I realized that every piece I was wearing was a gift from someone else.  It's funny how presents from such different people came together in an outfit that felt so completely my own.  I'm a very lucky girl to have loved ones who know me so well!!

Leopard coat, vintage.

These are quick, out-the-door photobooth shots, but you get the picture.   

 The leopard coat is a gift from my Nanny; it was hers in the 60s.  I love the swingy fit and the slightly cropped sleeves, and although it's vintage it still feels relevant today.  A love for over-the-top pieces must run in the family!

Bow clutch, Marc Jacobs.

This Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch is one of my go-to bags.  It's big enough to fit the essentials (and then some) and it's easy to carry.   My boyfriend got it for me last Christmas.  It was the first gift he ever picked out for me, and after receiving it I knew he was a keeper!  The bow detailing is perfect- it's simple but still makes a statement (that statement being:  I have the best boyfriend!).  

Suede wedges, Wild Pair.

Wedges are the perfect shoes: they add height without taking away comfort.  This funky pair was a gift from a client I used to work with, Tiffany.  I wore these shoes for 2 weeks straight after I got them!  They go with absolutely everything, but they're anything but basic.  The curvy shape of the wedge makes them the focal point of any outfit.
