Wearing Today: 2.1.09

Wearing Today: 2.1.09
Wearing Today: 2.1.09 - by FFM on Polyvore.com



The jeans are *rolled* at the bottom. My turtleneck is from BR. It's called *Gray Heather*, and really brings out the gray of the Astrid Boucle' Jacket...it looks fab with the shoes, too. My necklace is from Forever 21, as well as a strand of pearls that are tied with a ribbon.

Thanks to houndlvr67 who let us know that the Bella Vita shoes are currently available at Shoes.com. There is a code entshoes09, which will save you 20% on your order there.

Here are a couple pictures of the outfit on me IRL. I carried my Leopard Bag instead of the Black one in my set. This is the bag that is substituted with the Jimmy Choo Leopard bag in my sets, since it's not on Polyvore.

  1. Good morning, FFM! Love your look today. I own the same jacket and wear a lot of grays. LOVE the shoes - gorgeous color and would look fabulous with my grays - just curious if they fit TTS and how comfortable are they? I've never worn that brand. TIA!

  2. I LOVE this outfit...I was looking for the "perfect" shoes to go with my new purchase (berry astrid) and YOU found them for me :). I just placed an order at shoes.com and if you use the coupon "entshoes09" it will save 20% on your order. Just a tip :)

  4. Hi Elizabeth! Today is the first time I have worn the shoes...they felt good, but I wouldn't say they were comfortable like my Born or Cole Haan shoes are. I bought my normal size, but think I could have possibly sized down one half size. I have recently been wearing Gel inserts in my shoes for a little extra comfort, and they also help to make a shoe that is a little too big fit more snugly, so my normal size is working out great. HTH!

    houndlvr67, congratulations on the shoes! They are a really terrific color and very pretty IRL, too! :) Thank you for the code, btw! I'm going to update the post with the information. :)

    {My Flip Flopz}, thank you for the compliment and for visiting my blog, too! :)

  5. FFM, I love the bag. Is it a Brighton?

    Also, I think the distressed jeans turned out great.

  6. FFM - Thanks for the info on the shoes. I may have to purchase them! I do think, though, there aren't too many shoes more comfortable than Borns or Cole Haans. You looked great in your outfit! Thanks again for your awesome blog. You are an inspiration and very stylish!

  7. FFM: I love that you posted pics IRL! The outfit looks awesome on you!

    I went into F21 yesterday (or Forever 29 as one of my friends likes to call it, to make us feel better about shopping there despite our age:) and I found some great jewelry. I got the long "pearl" necklace for $6 or $7. They had tons of cute pieces and the prices were so much easier for me to swallow. Thanks for the heads up on the great finds to be had at F21!

  9. Dear FFM
    I trust your judgment, do your vintage slim destroyed jeans fit loosely?

    I just bought them and they fit comfortably, but they aren't "skin tight" like some of the other styles of jeans that I have (i.e. high heel flare). I debated if I should get a smaller size but in the catalog the models wear them kind of loosely.

    I like the way they look rolled up, but want to confirm that they shouldn't be skin tight.

    Thanks for all you do

  10. Hi Thinking! Congratulations on the jeans! I actually distressed my own Gap Essential jeans, and they are the ones I have on in my pics...I wish I could have gotten the J.Crew pair on sale, but they were out of my size. Anyways, the jeans are supposed to be looser on you, and definitely not fitted. I have heard other Aficionadas comment that the jeans have a lot of room in them when they purchased their regular size, as well, so that is the way the jeans are made. I hope this helps you out! I think they should be fine the way they are. :) ENJOY!!!

  13. Thanks Marison! :) The bag is actually a Sharif Handbag that I purchased in 2007. The quality is fantastic and it goes perfectly with all of my Black and Grays during Fall and Winter.

    Hi Smarty! So glad you checked out the jewelry at Forever21...there is definitely a lot of cute pieces, and I always feel that even if I only wear something a couple of times, the $5.80 is SO worth it! :)

    McShoppy and Alexis, THANK YOU!!! :)

  14. I am just getting a chance to catch up on your posts. I must say it is refreshing to see many of the outfits that are in magazines actually on a real person! And they look awesome! You have done such a great job helping the average person be able to adapt the styles often seen in magazines...Thanks, you give me hope!
