My Dream Trench Coat

This past weekend I finally got the trench coat of my dreams! Seriously, I've been looking for the perfect trench since I was 12! Anyway, a couple months ago I saw this one hanging in the window at Anthropologie. I loved it right away, but couldn't bring myself to go in and try it on because I knew it was expensive. Almost everyday I had to drive by that window to get where ever I was going. It even got to the point that the lady I work with would say, there's your trench Quincy, lol! This past Saturday Jonny asked if I'd like to go look around at Anthropologie. (I have a cute hubby) He knows I like to wander there for inspiration. I headed back to the sale section and guess what was there? My trench coat, on sale, in my size and it was the last one left! How could I leave without it!? As far as I'm concerned it was meant to be. I don't think I'll ever take this coat off.

Flats, from Anthro years ago!

So, that's the story of my dream trench coat. Slightly silly, but it's true.
Also, Happy Halloween! I'm not dressing up this year, but in my new coat I kinda feel like a modern day Audrey Hepburn.. and who wouldn't want that!? xo

Inspiration Friday, Rachel Roy F/W 2011

Some of you might have already seen Rachel Roy's F/W 2011 collection when she debuted it back it the February. Me, I just stumbled upon it a fews days ago and was instantly smitten. Her mix of vibrant florals with dark knits and tweeds is just how I'm feeling this fall!

Of course I also love the vintage vibe to these looks. Very 1930's, don't you think?!
This weekend is supposed to be one of the chillest we've had so far this fall. In the 50's and 60's! So, I'm looking forward to trying out some of these looks. :o)
Have a lovely weekend! xo

Evening Light

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone had a nice weekend!
The dress I'm wearing is one I made a couple months back. It was somewhat inspired by one of my favorite dresses from Lena Hoschek's S/S collection. I used and early 70's pattern that I had bought on Etsy in the spring. I'm happy with the way it turned out, but next time I think I'll use a lighter weight fabric. Unfortunately making this dress didn't seem to diminish my desire to own the Lena Hoschek dress it was inspired by, hehe.

Dress, Made by me
Belt and bag, vintage
Shoes, Thrifted

Also, you might be able to tell these pictures are a little fuzzy. Well, that's because I'm still using Jonny's phone to do outfit posts. I'm hoping to have my new camera by Christmas or maybe sooner! So, until them camera phone pics it is, lol. Talk to you soon!

I recently discovered the most wonderful tumblr blog Fashion + Suggestion with an amazing collection of Norma Jeane photos! I thought I'd seen all there was to see of the girl that became Marilyn Monroe, but I was so wrong. Here are some new to me Norma Jeane photos that I just adore! Most of which have a fall like feeling to them ;o)

All photos found here

Have a lovely weekend! xo

I'm sure most of you have heard that Michelle Williams will be playing Marilyn Monroe in the new film My Week With Marilyn. When I saw these photos of Michelle from the new issue of Vogue I was completely amazed. Michelle is gorgeous as Marilyn!
