WIW: Short Skirt, Long Jacket

Cake didn't say anything about tall boots, but I threw those into the mix as well. :)

This is the Gibson jacket I scored at Shoptoberfest, worn with an old brown sweater dress - because, hot diggity, it didn't even reach 70 degrees where I was today! *fist pump*

Of course, in the Dress for Success office, the AC was making weird noises, and I wished I could remove the jacket without ruining the outfit, but I was happy as a clam walking to/from the bus stop. These Fryes still need some breaking in, but the footbed is delightful, and the laces allow me to support my arches. Once the heel softens, they will be in business for a day at work!

    Thanks for getting that song stuck in my head! Better than Maroon 5 though.

    Love the outfit - so glad you got the jacket!

    Sorry, but all I can think about are the Cake lyrics. ......can you cut through red tape, Rae? Love that line.
    Yikes, your jacket is the "tops" though!!! Whooo!

    Love the jacket, what a great color. Works perfectly with the brown.

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    The jacket is stunning on you. I like it with your hair back so we see even more of the color next to your face.

    Really great outfit! Love the browns and greens for fall.

    Beautiful jacket, and I am still coveting those boots. A pair will be mine some day!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    OH MY WORD! That jacket is amazing on you! The colour and cut is positively delicious.

    I think I'm going to start saving for a pair of Frye boots - every time I see your boots (and any other Fryes here on the forum), I just smile and wish...

    Complete and total rockstar! Love the emerald green by itself but the dimension the moss green bag adds is genius. I am truly inspired.

    You look so good in the Gibson jacket!

    (I tried it on. I looked like I've got man shoulders.)
