I know, this is totally retro, right? This Claudia Grau vintage jacket was given to me by wonderful co-worker who recalls wearing it during a photo shoot she worked on with Stephanie Seymour. Loving the vibrant colors.  My purple suede Via Spiga boots were a treasured find during my first venture to Nordstrom Rack. I went right before Christmas and stood in a huge line just to get these boots. I remember when I finally got to the register, the sales guy said to me, “You stood in this whole line and all you’re getting is a pair of boots?!” My reply was, “Hey, these are $70 down from over $300… worth the wait!”

The other day, I was watching Zac Effron interview Matthew Perry to promote 17 Again, and Effron asked the question, “If you had the chance, would you rather re-live the past or get a glimpse into the future?” I thought it was interesting, and would agree with Perry in saying I’d relive the past because what if the future really sucks or it’s not how you wanted things to turn out. There are just certain amazing moments and memories that I’ll only experience once with people who are no longer in my life, and I’d love to re-live them again. Oh, to be 17 again…

    Oh my gosh- that is a genius jacket! If I saw that on a hanger at my local thrift I would’ve thought “too boxy,” but it looks gorgeous on you! Boots were definitely worth the wait 😉

    Love that jacket- definitely borrowing from you and I’ll be sure to ask before! Ahh, the Nordstrom Rack that I ditched you at to go to Borders. But ya, those boots were worth the wait! xoxo
