Tweed-le Dee

12.20.2012


Vintage embroidered sweater dress,
Nanette Lepore handbag (last seen here), 
Elizabeth + James booties (similar here), 

Remember when Lauren and I went winter coat hunting at Beacon's Closet and she found this beauty? I didn't find anything at Beacon's that day but did fall in love with a Limited Edition tweed coat on ASOS.com and as expected, Lauren and I have now done a total switcheroo.

We've both been getting ready for the upcoming holiday which, basically means drinking and eating up a storm, but also figuring out what to get our families. This year my family and I have decided to ask one another to donate to our favorite charity, non-profit or cause in lieu of exchanging gifts. Mine was an easy choice: I asked my parents and my brother to donate to Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, the organization that saved my pup Gideon from a high kill shelter in Louisiana. I honestly can't think of anything I want more than to know that more pups this holiday season find their forever homes.

What's your favorite charity to donate to? Lauren and I may spend an inordinate amount of time losing ourselves to fashion and the fast pace environment that is New York, but we're always looking for more ways to help those around us.

xx, M

  4. ADORE this coat. My mom had the raddest tweed trench in the 80's, and I've always wished I could find something just like it. This is the closest I've seen!
