{Thrifty Thursday} The Tweed Jacket

Monday we blogged about our obsession with tweed jackets, and today we just so happen to know about a drastically less expensive version.  If you like the look, but are not sure if it's one you'll wear over and over, save big bucks on this perfect version by H&M.  We love it!

{We're Obsessed!} The Tweed Jacket

Oh you fine tweed.  We are particularly in love with this jacket because it's a sophisticated break from another fall obsession, the motorcycle leather jacket.  It's amazing how the jacket can dress up a simple tee and jeans.  And if it dresses up the most simple of outfits, imagine the possibilities!  

Theory Jacket, $415, shown with jeans, tee, shoes and handbag, all Net-A-Porter

Shown are two almost identical versions by Theory.  One is available from the current collection and the other is last season (summer tweed) and half off!

{Thrifty Thursday} Smoking Slippers!

Is it odd that in the era when smoking cigarettes has become totally unglamorous, the smoking slipper becomes the ultimate statement of glamor?  Even more, these glamorous slippers are the perfect compliment to cigarette pants worn with just about any top.  There are so many versions out there.  I'm partial to leopard printed ones - Jimmy Choo has a pair, Monolo Blahnik's are pretty hot too.  Even Prada and Dolce and Gabbana have their own versions of the shoe.  Steal the look with this identical pair by Nine West.
