When a representative from Ricki’s asked me if I would like to test drive a few pieces from their fall collection, I quickly jumped at the opportunity to pick out a new autumn look.  After a full-store (and website!) browse, along with helpful recommendations from the sales staff, I decided on a vest/tunic/leggings  look.  This is a slight departure from my everyday style because at the moment, my leggings tend to be reserved for work-out and lounge attire (this is a ridiculous mental block as I have no problem wearing slim-fit pants, which are essentially just thicker leggings…).

Vest:  c/o Ricki’s  {I have actually been wanting a nice faux fur vest for a few seasons now, but I was unable to find something at a decent price point that didn’t look inherently cheap.  This vest is incredibly soft and is of much better quality than the other options I considered in the past}
Blouse:  c/o Ricki’s
Leggings:  c/o Ricki’s  {they keep their shape quite well!}
Necklace:  c/o Ricki’s
Bracelets:  both c/o Ricki’s (here and here)
Purse:  Le Chateau {old}
Boots:  Enzo Angiolini {simliar}
Sunglasses:  Aldo

PS: I’m giving away a $50 gift card to Ricki’s – check back early next week for details!

What a week!  I meant to have these photos up by Wednesday, but here we are on Friday morning and I am just managing to now carve out a little blog time.  For better, or for worse, my week has been incredibly work-busy (as opposed to the more-fun vacation-busy!).

Skirt:  Joe Fresh {similar here and here}
Clutch:  Le Chateau {purchased about 2003 maybe?}
Shoes:  Charles David Katya {Also available here.  Loving the shape & surprisingly comfortable for the price and heel height!  Will be on the lookout for more colors}
Bracelets:  Gorjana chain; thrifted bangles
Midi/Knuckle rings:  Ardene {just meant to be cheapies to test out the look… After wearing between one and three knuckle rings for about a week, I have to admit, I am quite liking the trend! Similar rings here here and here}

I bought this skirt during a brave moment a few weeks back, and I am surprised how much I actually like it.  It’s a little outside my comfort zone, but also surprisingly wearable.
