True Grit

February 11, 2011



(Hat – Urban Outfitters, Coat – Opening Ceremony, Cardigan – QSW, Vest – Crossroads Find, Denim Shirt – Thrifted, Scarf – Vintage, Pants – Silence & Noise via Crossroads, Boots – Jessica Simpson)

Today was the coldest.. cold-to-the-bone coldest.. and this meant layers on layers on layers.

While “prep-shopping” for my trip to New York, I discovered this vintage brown leather vest at Crossroads.. suddenly images of the movie “True Grit” popped in my mind.. and I knew I wanted to create a look inspired by good ‘ole western movies.

Ye-Haw!

    I love vests, they give such a twist to an outfit. The boots are amazing!

    what a gorgeous city/outdoor look. There is so much going on because of the layers, this can be very tricky but it works so well on you. The combination of the different pieces is so exuberating; I love your boots: it makes it city chique. The texture and the cut of the pants looks fabulous. I adore a camel coat, you can never go wrong with that color. It makes it all so ‘hunting season classy’.

    Love this Beth! Hhaha, you look a tad cold in the first photo! Must be such a shock after being in Southern California. Absolutely adore your use of layering though! You look fab. xx

    Love the boots. You have such a great collection of browns, I need to expand out of my comfort zone of blacks and greys! Hope you’re having fun in the big apple.

    Now you understand …”new jerseyian” over here does numerous layering posts…there is NO other way to exist fashionably in this weather.
    Loving that leather vest…maybe show us another fit with the vest…I would love to see more of it:)
