Lady Lunching

IMG_3214IMG_3215I happened to have a lunch meeting at the country club. The occasion created the perfect excuse to dress like a lady who lunches. I think Dorothy would approve.

Scarlet & the cool-girl kicks

It’s a rare occurrence when I go into a store and want everything on the racks. Like it never happens as a rule. Scarlet in West Little Rock is an exception to that rule. At nine years old, Scarlet is better the ever. The shop recently opened a new storefront designed by the brilliant Heather Owens of Georgia James (you can find heather & a mini GJ shop within Scarlet); a relaunched website featuring a web store with brands like Elizabeth & James, Rebecca Minkoff and J Brand alongside the Scarlet brand capsule collection.
Brimming with leather skinnies, cutout dresses, flat bill caps and fur jackets, Scarlet has the quintessential fall wardrobe for the coolest girl you know.

The clothes, bags and baubles are drool worthy but the shoes – oh the shoes – I’m continually obsessed with the selection that owner Jeanne curates. You may know that I rarely buy new pieces, strictly adhering to a diet of vintage & thrift, but this diet doesn’t really apply to footwear. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that shoes are almost always best when bought new.

Until now, you could only peruse & purchase this amazingness in store. I feel like it’s my duty to inform you that you will be able to buy them online as of Thursday, 10/31.

And you’re welcome.

This jacket is pretty major. I’m very excited about it. The dress is supposed to have a mid-calf hem but I used some hem tape to shorten and really loved the results.

What I Wore: The Quintessential Fall Dress

what I wore: dress vintage st simon via grey dog, sunnies – potter’s house, socks/earrings/platforms – forever21
I got this dress last winter at Grey Dog. I’m not sure I even wore it last year, it screams Autumn which makes me feel like I should wear it in the fall or not at all. Anyway, if one can manage to fit it into the rotation, it’s so very cute and fun and quintessentially fall.
