Highway 120


1
I've never had the luxury of having a sister with whom I could swap clothes. But it is quite nice to have Annalise and Isla as "honorary sisters." On Sunday afternoon, Miss Isla visited for a cocktail and girl talk. She was wearing this amazing mustard suede skirt, and I knew I had to wear it for at least a few hours. She quickly rummaged through my closet for a replacement outfit and settled on a 1960s stripped dress with a crisp white collared shirt. I styled this a-line beauty with my newest purchase- a Southwestern-inspired bag from a Native American trading post on Highway 120 in California. We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around the Haight/Ashbury district, trying on Fall boots, and drinking a glass or two of champagne. What a lovely day with a lovely girl.

The Daily Fashionista :

Great look!! I love that you guys just swapped the outfit right before cocktail hour:)

La Fille D'or :

I am in love with this outfit. I love that bag. You are luck to have such stylish honorary sisters. I wish I had the same.

Jenni Wells - Stop Making Sense :

It must be so much fun to be able to share clothes with your friends! Most of my close girl friends could care less about clothing so I stand alone when it comes to fashion.

That skirt is so neat! I love how you styled it. Lace + Suede = Love

Rae Veda :

Cut top! I always find myself looking forward to your outfits. XO, Rae

How awesome to be able to swap clothes!I can't swap clothes with my sister nor my friends, we all have such different shapes that it makes it hard to do something like this. Oh well, I guess i will have to stick with buying clothes instead! :)

Amber Blue Bird :

I sometimes wish I had a sister to swap clothes with but then I remember that she would also want to borrow my clothes and then the dream isnt so cool :) Cute skirt.

islabell :

Damn girl. Daaaammmmnnn. I love how these photos turned out :) You make me so happy. holding my breath for the vintage expo and our hiking Champaign sisters sunday club
Now I feel I should post that lovely striped dress which I want forever...but then matt would probably loose his shirt too....and i'd have to take the bunnies for good measure.

I'm definitely envious that you are the same shoe and dress size as several of your friends! Especially when said friends are vintage lovin' bloggers too. :)

Your little skirt & blouse outfits have been adorable lately, I've been seeking out the perfect suede skirt at the thrifts but no luck yet.
