Hello, and welcome back to the Winter Term here at GOACA. I hope your holidays were lovely; mine were a combination of fun and cozy, with a tiny bit of high drama on New Year’s Eve, and I did manage to get in a touch of shopping, but just a touch: all I bought was this cashmere snap cardigan in gray on markdown at Vince (where, sadly, it is now sold out online, but if you live near a Vince store I’d swing by and see if they’ve got one lying around). I actually like this army green even better, and it’s a perfect, slightly cropped, length, and soft as the day is long.
This fleece popover from Anine Bing was gone in a flash earlier this fall (although they have it back in limited sizes right now) but I think it’s pretty snappy in the black, too, and well worth nabbing, though I myself have yet to pull the trigger. I like that it sort of looks like it could be Patagonia (yes, that is kind of a plus for me) only a bit chicer, and without the annoying Patagonia patch on the chest. If you’re at all tempted, act fast, as I feel certain it will sell out too.
I don’t quite have the quite right body type for this dress so it was easy enough to pass up, but the print is unstoppable.
A super well-priced striped sweater that could not be a whole lot more adorable.
And this striped sweater is not quite so cheap, but is indeed super-cool: zoom in and check out how fantastic the sleeve alone is.
And here’s a leather skirt that is pretty reasonable, as leather skirts go, and has a snappy—and an often (if not inevitably) flattering little A-line shape.
An updated take on the signet ring that would look fantastic in just about any stack I could dream up.
I already have a couple of webbed, D-ring belts like this one, but none of them are in red, let alone such a good rich red, and the pattern here is so modern and graphic too.
I’m light sensitive, so I wear sunglasses when it’s sunny or glare-y even in the winter (and am light sensitive enough to not understand why everyone doesn’t) and when it’s really bright out, the bigger the sunglass the better. I think these are quite glam.
